There’s an Apple event today. All about iPads. Since I’m in need of a new iPad, I’m looking forward to this.

The rumours says there is no new regular iPads though, and that’s all I’m in the marked for.

Can they convince me of looking to a more expensive model?

Moving to a new house means a new school for my kids.

Today is their first regular day at the new school.

My daughter is excited, my son has anxiety.

It hurts to see him like this. It will be hard to focus on work today.

Everything is less chaos than one week ago. Less moving boxes helps.

There are outbreaks of home sickness from time to time, and regret.

I might be the only member of the family who likes the move right now.

On Sunday me and my wife have been together for 20 years.

Buying an apartment, getting married, buying a house and having three kids all happened.

Today we move into a new house. Where we will grow old together.

And thus the next chapter of our life begins.

The whole family took a trip to the new house today. Walked around, stopping at local cafes for a pause.

Can’t wait until we get the new house on Monday.

This week we got a series of bids for our house. All from the same buyer and all bids were declined.

The distance between what we would accept and what was offered made it clear we could not reach an agreement.

Days later I’m wondering if we did the right choice. I can’t stop thinking “what if”.

There is so much to do when you’re selling a house and moving.

My task list in Things are super long.

What do I need to do today?

Changes

The date was 31.12.2022. The location was the house me and my wife had lived in for last 10 years. The topic was “what do we want to accomplish for 2023?”.

It was almost morning the next day when we went to bed. Both pleased with the discussion and the outcome of it. I remember waking up thinking “do we really want to do this?”.

As my wife joined me for a morning coffee, it seemed she thought the same.

“Are we doing this?”.

Fast forward to January 2024 and we have packed or gotten rid of most of the things in our house.

I think back to that last night of 2022, when my wife asked me what I thought of moving to a new place, “in the future”. “I’ve thought about that for a long time” I replied.

I did not expect to be where we are now, moving into a new house in around six weeks time. But I’m very happy that we are.
