Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We get to spend the day with Kyle's Dad, Brother, Sister, Aunt and all of their families. I believe there will be 15 in all! Enjoy your day!

We're in!

I can't believe we're finally in our new home after such a long, drawn out process. We love it, here. Our living space is phenomenal, just perfect for us and my kitchen is just perfect. It has brand new cabinets and appliances.

Unpacking can be very overwhelming, but we're plugging away. Today, since Kyle had to be gone for work most of the morning/afternoon, I decided to go shopping for some home necessities. I found a lot of what I was looking for, so that was good. It also plum tuckered Maddox out, so he's napping.

Off to unpack some more!

It's 3:15am and I can't sleep. I'm visiting my parents and heading home tomorrow. I fell asleep for probably 1-2 hours and haven't been able to fall back to sleep for the last 2. Blah. So, I did a little shopping online and now I decided to blog about nothing because I really don't have anything important to say.

2 things:

1. If everything goes as planned, we should be closing on our houses tomorrow, which frees us up to move on THURSDAY!!! Yippee! Pray that the $$$ comes through from the lady buying our house since we can't buy ours without her money.

2. My son is genius. At a ripe age of 21 months he's a puzzle whizz. He can not only do the little puzzles that have a specific hole for each piece, he can do a map of the United States. It's a wooden one, but each state doesn't have it's own hole. Hard to explain, so I'll have to take a picture for you soon. He can do it all by himself.

Maybe I can fall asleep now? We'll see.

Note to self: Don't take 2 1/2 hour naps ending at 5pm from now on :-)

I've been packing my little heart out today and boy is it a lot of work. It feels like no matter how much I pack, I still have so much to do! I'm down to 4 days left before I really need to have everything packed up and done, but it feels like I could work as hard as I did today and still have it take another full year! I'm sure that's not entirely true, but there's still so much to do none-the-less. Molly is going to come help me on Friday and she'll be a huge help. I think we'll pack up the kitchen then since I'll be gone over the weekend and won't really need dishes to cook in or anything and Kyle can hold his own with a pot or two and some paper dishes. I knew I dreaded the day we moved out of this house because of all the stuff we've accumulated and I have to say that that's exactly my feelings right now as moving day looms. Dread. Thankfully, our realty company is hiring movers to move us, so we don't have to do any of the heavy lifting ourselves. Yippee!

Off to pack some more...

Moving...So Soon?

Or is it so late?

I received a call from our Realtor today and we might be signing papers on our houses next Friday! Which means we'd get our keys on Tuesday and could move the weekend before Thanksgiving. I should have more information on Monday, but that's what it's sounding like. Yippee for moving into my cute new house!

On the garage sale front, I feel like we had a very successful day! We were open from 9-1 and were busy almost the whole time. We'll be open again tomorrow for 4 hours and at Noon and everything is 50% off, I want it all gone gone gone! I love purging.

I Think I'm Crazy

It's 50 degrees outside and rainy and I'm having a moving sale tomorrow and Saturday. I have to say, it feels great to purge my life of stuff, lots of stuff we've accumulated and stashed in our 4 1/2 years of marriage. We are downsizing a bit with our move, so I have a bit of small furniture to pass on as well as clothes and little"things" that need to find a new home. Luckily, we have a big garage to have the sale in, so everything will stay nice and dry. I also put an classified ad in the paper to draw people out of their nice warm homes. I made some awesome fluorescent pink signs to put out at the street (rain proofed them as much as possible). It's a lot of work! After work Kyle will be home to help to set up some tables and move some stuff around. Hopefully, I'm ready, because ready or not, I'm sure I'll have people busting down my door at 9am.
