Mixed feelings . . .

I am having a mix of emotions flooding me right now.  You see, I am moving out of the place that I have lived for five years.  Chris has lived with me for two of those five years.  Here are some things that have happened while I have lived here (in no particular order):
  • Went on vacation to China and came home to find that everything was clean and the way that I left it!  Amazing!  I have done that on several other vacations too!
  • Learned the ins and outs of Lowe's and Home Depot.
  • Had many friends, dates, and eventually a husband come over here and play with me.
  • Fallen in love.
  • Been proposed to.
  • Received the phone call to say that my grandma die.
  • Watched several movies and TV shows, including, most notably, the Ken Burns's Civil War and most of the first season of Lost here.
  • Had 15 people over in my tiny family room watching a movie here.
  • Had the Rusch family over for Thanksgiving, and somehow pulled it off to host it here.  That was truly amazing!
  • Experienced the adventures of shopping for furniture, a piano, a new water heater, paint, carpeting, flooring, and much more to make this place complete.
  • Gotten many callings here, including Relief Society presidency (a few of those), Primary Presidency, and bishopric.
  • Made many many meals in our kitchen.
  • Had a lot of family members come to visit, including:
    • Chris's dad, who came to set him apart as a high priest.
    • Chris's mom, who came to stay for a little while.
    • My mom, who came to help with the birth of my nephew.
    • Our niece, who came for a couple of sleepovers.
    • Our brothers, when they have needed a place to stay because their BYU apartments have kicked them out.
    • Other brothers, who just came for fun.
  •  Read many books.
  • Laughed a lot.
  • Cried a lot.
  • Slept in.
  • Woke up early.
  • Stayed up late.
  • Got a Wii to play video games and watch Netflix on.
  • Done a lot of studying.
  • Went to the Provo Library to use their internet because I was too cheap to get my own to pay for during three weeks of being in China.
There are many more experiences, in fact, too many to mention.  I always said that I would cry when I leave this place.  And I am right now.  But I know that it is just time to close one book and open another one!
