We'd like to stay where we are at if possible, but the possibility is out there looming over my head. And I hate packing and moving.
Last night I realized that part of the reason I may not be feeling like this is home yet is that I haven't made it MY home yet.
I haven't hung up curtains or pictures or the little things that make the house more ME! Those are the things in our last house that really made the place feel homey, cozy and happy! It reflected who we were!
And I haven't done that here yet. I haven't wanted to unpack those items just to pack them up again in a few months if the contract runs out. BUT! That comes at a price of not feeling settled and at home.
I can't and shouldn't live my life on what-if's! I should be enjoying this house in the meantime while we are here! I NEED to make it my own NOW!!!
Who cares if I have to pack it all up again in a year! We might not have to move and end up staying for quite a few years! I'd rather have the home feel comforting and welcoming in the meantime, than never decorated and feeling like out of sorts and not like ourselves while we're here!
So there you go! That is my new plan and goal! I am going to begin decorating and personalizing this house for us.
Stay tuned for more pictures, projects and updates in this department!
