Editing Our Life Part 4: Selling the House & Moving

We finally did it! We finally sold our home for what we needed and were able to become debt free and pursue our renovation of Chitty Bang. We hustled. We got rid of even more crap, and began the next step of our lives. We packed what was rest of our stuff, loaded up the u-haul, and with the help from some amazing friends (Thanks Amber, Brent, Barbara, Mike, and, Anne & Drew:)) were out of our home and on our way to West Texas to finish the bus!

Loading the UHaul. Only the furniture and tools left:)

A Quick Moving Selfie πŸ™‚ Can you tell I am excited?

Getting on the road! Convoy: Friend in car with kids, Friend in UHaul with Uhaul trailer, Me in the truck with Mila, and Crab in Chitty Bang.

I led the convoy, and everytime I looked in my side and rear view mirrors I was reminded of the life I was leaving and the Life I was heading towards. It was an amazing feeling, and I will never forget it.

In West Texas and chitty Bang is full. All I could think was "How the hell am I going to fit all my crap in a bus?" lol

Thanks to another fantastic friend, Jim, we have a place to stay while we work on Chitty Bang at his house. Now, we are focusing on that:) So far, living without a majority of our stuff has not been that bad πŸ™‚ We have clothes, our necessities, the girls have a few toys (About a large shoebox full and their electronics), and our tools. And what we order for the bus of course. It feels like it did after the fire, but more at home and with the knowledge of this all being my choice…instead of a choice made for me. Since we have left over 3 months ago and began working on Chitty Bang, I have not regretted our decision once. We have been surrounded by some pretty awesome people that each know a lot about something specific that we want to learn more about. We also have a place to stay where we all feel so welcome. Although it will be just another small moment in our lives, we have already learned more about ourselves and each other πŸ™‚
