I am on week 5 of driving around from hotel to hotel and pushing and carrying bags to each location to live out of. I am so exhausted. I have been trying to stay as organized as possible to keep my sanity. It is becoming very difficult to keep everything in order and cart things around. It is so tiring to unload and re-load the car every 2-4 days. We do our laundry once a week on the weekends. And as hard as I try to keep clothes neatly folded, they flop all over the suitcase when rolled out of hotels. And we are sharing one car-it looks like we live in it. Of course, we don’t keep any garbage in the car and keep it clean, but the bags are jammed in to the point where we just make sure we can see out of the windows to drive.
It is honestly getting exhausting just getting ready in the morning. The minimalist part of me is ready to just get rid of everything. I have even been skipping my make-up routines in the mornings. I just honestly don’t feel like opening up my bags to put on make-up and get my make-up brushes and mirror out. I am kicking myself for having packed so much. When we left Rhode Island, we weren’t sure when we would close on the house and have the movers come. We still aren’t sure-but we are getting a lot closer to the move-in date now.
I packed sweaters, scarfs, hats, gloves, boots, and especially snow boots. Of course today it is about 70 degrees-I packed a car full of stuff and have nothing to wear for the weather today. The irony of this situation is not lost on me. I cannot wait to have all of my stuff in one place finally. I am sure that once I get all of my things back, I will be overwhelmed with the amount of stuff we have. Since I haven’t seen it in so long, I almost forgot that I had other clothes.
This morning my husband and I packed up the car-which felt like the millionth time we have done this. After I dropped him off at work, I rushed out to sit at a coffee shop. I feel like I am trapped in the hotel all the time and crave to get out. Exercising each day keeps me busy, but today, it is my birthday, and I needed a change of scenery. I can’t wait to feel settled and organized in my new place. I hope the end of my nomadic lifestyle is coming soon.
