So, Chance and I have been living out of hotel for 29 days - the entire month of December - and it is exhausting. As I write this post, I'm currently eating microwavable meatloaf that I bought from the Residence Inn market and laying in bed recovering from the flu with Winston by my feet.
Many of you are probably wondering why we're living out of a hotel so I decided to dedicate an entire post to a life update for y’all. Chance was offered an incredible opportunity to relocate to New York with his current company to manage a new distribution center in Orange County and being the somewhat spontaneous couple that we are, we jumped on board and went for it. The rest of the story will help tie in our blog name, Chaos With Coffee, because our lives are quite literally filled with chaos and fueled by coffee.
With very little lead time, we had to act fast and essentially pack up the necessities and move up north from Virginia right after Thanksgiving. The crazier part is that Chance actually left for Dallas the Sunday after Thanksgiving (11/26) and when he landed back in Virginia at midnight on Friday, December 1, I was waiting for him at the airport with a car full of clothes and caffeine so we could drive straight through the night to New York because he agreed to work that afternoon! Yes, we are crazy. We arrived at our hotel around 8am and I’m not even sure if we slept that day because our internal clocks were so out of whack.
Fast forward 29 days, 2 hotels and 1 dog later and here we are in Fishkill, NY waiting to close on our house - the countdown has officially begun! Although, we still have a month to go so we've only just reach the halfway point of our hotel stay. Stay tuned for more craziness and updates on this crazy adventure we call life.
