Our Crazy Lives...

Home Sweet Home

We closed on our homes without any problems, but the move itself was more complicated. The movers that were going to haul our "big stuff" over on Friday had their lights burn out, so they had to reschedule for Saturday morning. Then, our U-Haul truck overheated... at least it was in front of our new house so we could unload (it took them 2 days to tow it off- never use them again!) Our water and DSL service was delayed too.

The refridgerators were delivered on time, but we had to put in a service call to level the doors on both. The new couches for the downstairs living room came a week after we moved in, but the leather was damaged. We just got them switched out for new ones today.

On the Monday following our move, I went back to work. It is nice to be back at school, but tiring too. I haven't gotten as settled in as I would like around the house either, but we plan to work on that this weekend. Got to get some Christmas decorations up, do some shopping and more "settling in" this weekend too!

Finally...the move!

We closed on our current house Monday and we close on our new home tomorrow. We've been madly packing, but I've not gotten as much done as I'd like. Marley has been quite demanding as she adjusts to her new reflux meds.

Anyway, we're going to stay up late tonight to finish as much as we can. We close tomorrow at 10:00 and movers are hauling our "big stuff" over between 4-6. We have the refridgerators scheduled to deliver that night, but unfortunately the new couches won't come until next week.

Tomorrow night, although we'll have just the basics, we'll be spending our first night in our new home! I'm excited but I'll miss this house too. I'll miss having a "dog room" right off the porch, Jaxon's nursery we worked so hard on, the big trees out back and of course, the memories we made in this house. But the new place is going to be great! I go back to work Monday, but hope to get most of the unpacking done asap! :) S
