We have seven days* until we move into our new house! SEVEN DAYS! Cannot believe it and cannot wait! I fear this may be the longest week ever!
We have a walk-through tomorrow morning, to learn the in’s and out’s of the house (how to operate the furnace and stuff like that) and then we close on September 20. We plan on sleeping at the house that night, even if it’s on the floor on sleeping bags.
Things have not been going well with our current living situation. I don’t want to air dirty laundry on this here blog or vent about specifics, just trust me, it’s been reallllly reallly tense and bad. We deeply regret our decision to move in with a family member. We had no idea it would be as bad as it has turned out to be. We feel foolish for thinking it would be alright as a temporary living situation. But then, we tell ourselves that no one could have predicted the craziness we’ve had to endure these last eight weeks. It’s almost over though! ALMOST OVER!
Come September 20, a huge weight will be lifted off our shoulders. We’ll be HOME!
I plan to take plenty of photos of the new house to share. For now, here’s a few of our pretty landscaping!
We just love those little pointy bushes by our front door. They were a surprise! We didn’t know what type of bushes we were getting.
Side view … we’ll be getting sod in the front yard this week.
Basically the only thing that is left for them to do is put sod in the front yard, put grass seed in the back yard, install our blinds and deliver our fridge. Other than that, the house is DONE! I actually promised myself that I’d stay away from the house after we are finished with our meeting tomorrow. It’s gotten to the point where I just don’t want to leave once I’m there!
*Technically, it’s eight days until we move in, but my blog counter thingie is counting it down by the hour, so really it’s like seven days and 21 hours or something like that which is almost 8 days, but I like the sound of 7 days, so that’s what I’m counting on.
