Moving Progress

We have the truck and the first truckload in the house! Today will be busy busy busy prepping the rest of the house to be moved. And the rest of the house includes the computers. I'll be offline until at least Tuesday when the cable guy comes out, so emails won't be reaching me. If you need me, I'll have my cell phone on!

Small Happies

I got a mailbox. For my mail at my new house. :) And I have flowers on my porch. And two chairs inside now with my boxes of stuff. This all makes me super happy, even though we're not even close to moved in enough to sleep there yet. But after all the buying stress, small happies are acceptable.

Moving In

Well, we haven't started serious moving yet. I've been cleaning and organizing our old place to make packing faster, and we've been taking carloads of attic stuff while we set up the new place. We have tons of ideas for decorating, landscape, and layout. It's starting to feel more like home, even if it doesn't have furniture inside yet. And, we're making faster progress in the attic than I thought we would. We may actually get it all moved without getting rid of anything more. Then we move all the real things in one marathon weekend with a truck, and get to live there!

It's official. I am a homeowner. With keys and everything. I feel very relieved.

Everybody Limbo...

So. I'm told I close today. But the conversation doesn't stay that simple. It's more like
"So, it's all set, we'll see you at two to close."
"But, are all the papers in and approved?"
"Nope! See you at two!"
"...Don't we need all the papers to close?"
"Sure do. See you then. Bye!"

So, I'm pretty sure my head will explode just a teeny bit at some point today. I smell toast.
