Goodnight 381 Harvard Ave

Going to bed for the very last time in this house. I’m going to miss this place so much! We’ve called this place home for the past two and a half years. The longest we’ve ever been at a place since we got married. While I’m excited for our new home, lots of memories were created here that I’ll always remember.

This place is the very first house I’ve ever lived in with a backyard, garage, the whole shebang. I’ve only ever lived in apartments before this.

Although not EJ’s first home, he spent most of his life here. He turned one (and two, and three) here, took his first steps here, potty trained (with many accidents) here. He experienced many, many firsts in this house. He knows the way home when we’re driving in the car. Tonight, we had to make a quick stop at our new place before coming back here for the night. We drove right past our street and EJ quickly exclaimed, “Daddy you missed our house!” I think he will definitely miss this place. This is the home he knows. I hope he can adjust to his new house! I know kids are really adaptable. EJ is a creature of habit, though, so it might take him a while. He does have a new race car bed with Lightening McQueen bedsheets at the new house. So that might help!

This is little Elsa’s first home! She turned one here and took her first steps here (technically at our neighbor’s house, but close enough!) She probably will have no recollection of this house, but we will! I’ll definitely remember how she likes walking on the carpet and not on the linoleum in the house; how she learned how to go down the steps all on her own; and how she loves pulling out all our shoes from the shoe rack and putting on our shoes (no shoe rack at the new place!). Hopefully she’ll be able to adjust to the hardwood and tile floor in our new house!

I remember when we first moved in. I was SO not used to it! I thought it was too quiet and too dark! We moved here in the summer so I encountered many spiders in the house. One right above my head while I was lying on the bed. Yikes! I missed having aircon, fancy granite countertops, two bathrooms, upgraded kitchen appliances, among other things that our previous apartment had. And now that we’re leaving, I’m going to miss so many things about this place.

Many good memories were made here. And I’m sad to leave. I’ll miss our wonderful neighbors. Thankfully we’re only moving a mile away and we can still visit frequently. This place has been good to us.

I’m nervous and excited about finally being a homeowner! No more calling up the landlord to fix things. Eric needs to learn to be a handyman! I should learn, too. Hehe.

Moving forward! Goodnight 381 Harvard Ave! This is our last night here. We’ll miss you! Thank you for all the wonderful memories!

    Your current house no aircon? Lol i didn’t realize. Then what does it have? Just air-ventilation?

    Touching post 🙂 Many first-times. More first-times to come in your new house! Don’t worry, as long as your family is together, living anywhere will be good! 🙂
