Day 553: The Big Move

Rachel, Day by Day

What a busy weekend! I am now officially living with Scott. I moved to Normal this past weekend with help from A LOT of people. Thank you to everyone who helped this weekend (especially to Barb and Jeff for driving the Uhaul)!! I really really appreciate it. I couldn’t have done this without you! Packing everything up in Champaign took about 15 minutes; it was shocking! Bringing everything into Scott’s house took a while longer, but we did have a lot of help. There’s still a lot I want to organize, but we’ll get to it eventually. It’s been a very busy week with work, cleaning my old apartment, and unpacking things. I’m a bit tired! This photo is our newly decorated living room (and Scott). It’s a bit more girly and homey now!

I’ve been such an emotional freak lately about everything, but I’ll try to put it into words. I’m sad that I won’t be living in Champaign anymore, because it is a nice town. But, I’ll be commuting there for work every day, so I’ll still get to see it! I’m sad that I won’t get to see work friends outside of work as often, but there’s always weekends! 🙂 I’m slightly nervous about living with a boy, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it! But mostly, I’m excited about living with the love of my life and being able to see him and hug him every day. I think the excitement overpowers the rest of my emotions right now. I know it’ll take some getting used to since I’ve lived by myself for the past 4 years, but we’ll figure it out! It’ll be great. I’ve never been this happy in a relationship before; thank you, Scott!

So, honestly, how many of you think I’m nuts for driving to Champaign for work every day? I sometimes get nervous about it, but I know it’ll be fine overall. I’m sure people out there think I’m nuts, but I’ll try not to let it bother me. I love my job and don’t want to leave it, and there are a lot of people out there who commute a long way to work. Luckily it’s just one straight road, no starting and stopping in traffic!

I gave blood yesterday and it wasn’t the most pleasant experience. I got nauseous, went pale, and almost passed out, but I was fine 5 minutes later. I should have drunk more water or something. But, there was one part during that process that made me queasy. STOP HERE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ ABOUT BLOOD! You know that small bag they fill up first and put that amount of blood in test tubes? Well, for some reason, the woman put that bag on my hand for a few minutes when it was full. So, I was staring at my blood for a bit. That made me queasy enough, but the worst part was that it was very warm. That feeling freaked me out!! Ok, I need to stop thinking about it now.

Well, have a good night!!

  1. Gah! That sounds awful! The giving blood incident, not moving in with Scott. 😉

    I sympathize about the move, too – as much as I want Drew and me to get to live together, I’m nervous about having to adjust to living not alone anymore. And I always think of this episode from Friends (keep watching until Monica and Rachel make up):

    But like you said, the best part is that you get to live with the love of your life – I’m so happy for you two!
