We are Homeless

It’s official.  As of 3 pm today, we are homeless.  We got all our paperwork signed for our house here in Virginia so it technically isn’t ours any longer!  We will be here until Wednesday though.  We pick up the U-Haul tomorrow and load it up then we pull out of here around 8 am Wednesday morning.  We are **SUPPOSE** to close on our new house on Thursday at 10 a.m. but there is still some paperwork issues that our mortgage banker is working through.  Keep us in your prayers.  It’s even more stressful now since we don’t really have a place to live until closing down there! 

We’re getting really excited!  Annagrace’s last day at public school was today.  Once we move and get settled in we will finish out her school year at home.  She was a little sad today but I think she got through okay!  Madalyn is definitely the most excited about moving!  She’s been telling us that she doesn’t want to live here any longer and she wants to go to our new house!  She did get a little upset tonight when some people came and took our couch and chair away (we didn’t want to move it so we found someone on Freecycle to take it).  I tried to explain to her that we were getting a new couch and she wanted to know if those people were going to bring it back.

So we have a very busy day tomorrow packing the truck.  Then on Wednesday we have a long day of driving.  Our wonderful friends, Heather and Reber are driving down too so that we can get both vehicles there.  They are making the drive down and back in one day (it’s about 4.5 hours one way).  Did I mention that they are wonderful?!?!?!?  We’re gonna miss them–and all our friends here–terribly!  But we know we will see them again so it isn’t too terribly sad!

Here is a picture of our new home.  I pulled it from the realtor’s site.  I can’t wait to get there and get working on some projects (mostly painting the interior and landscaping on the outside!).  We love this house.  I have always wanted a saltbox home! I saw one in Better Homes and Gardens years ago and pulled the page out and kept it because I loved it so much.  I never thought we’d find one in NC–they are popular up north but not so common in the south. 

Anyway…here it is!


And I’m off to bed!
