21 Sep

It’s been a long and arduous couple of weeks, but we have finally, FINALLY, turned the corner.  At 10:45 this morning we signed our house over to the overly excited buyers.  They’ve been living in it for a week now, have painted all the walls, unpacked most of their stuff, and put a huge gouge in the bedroom hardwood floor.  If we hadn’t gotten the check today, why we would have….

Well, luckily they didn’t have to find out what we would have done… (heck, WE didn’t even know what we would have done.)  We’re just extremely relieved to have that chapter of our lives behind us.  And seeing how happy they are with their new home makes the crazy antics of this past two weeks well worth it.

Today also marked the first day I have been able to spend in OUR new home since we moved in almost two weeks ago.  I picked an absolutely beautiful day, I might add.  I opened up the windows, cranked my iPod, and had a blast unpacking, cleaning and organizing.  And now, as I sit on my couch, I look around at our much smaller abode, and I feel at home.


View from my corner of the couch. Not quite as great as our old great room. But so much comfier.

      Good things DO come in small packages here. It’s taken some getting used to, but we love it.

    Joey’s got a point!
    Ahh, it must feel good to have all of that behind you. Enjoy setting up the new place!

      It’s definitely a relief to have all that behind us. And it’s been fun getting settled in. We like our new place.

    Looks like home to me – especially with the guitar! I hope you have many happy years there!

      The guitar looks good in our new home. Sounds good too. We hope to have only three happy years here before heading to warmer weather. But you never know….

    Yay! You’re finally settled in! What a relief. Now you can relax a little… Wait, what am I saying? I’m not sure you know HOW to relax! 😉

      I’m relaxed mentally. Does that count?

        I think that counts in a big way! 🙂

    My guitar used to sit out just like that. It looks homey. But, like you, I find it hard to understand “new, not quite owners yet” painting what is still YOUR house. Did you like the new color?

      I never saw the colors. My husband warned them I may be calling. We thought they were just getting a bid. They were surprised we were upset! WTH! Anyway, it’s theirs now. Gouges and all.
      Did your guitar make the move to Florida?

    It is exciting and bittersweet to move into a new home. Smaller, yes. Different, certainly. Exciting, I would imagine. It is hard to let the old place go but I love how you have made the new place home, even with the guitar prominently displayed.

    I would imagine it was hard letting the old homestead go.

      It really has been exciting. The kids love being closer to their friends and school. They can sleep in a 1/2 hour longer now.
      It was hard to let our old place go. It was OURS. We dreamed it and built it and raised our family in it. But we were ready to leave that town. And with excited buyers, it was much easier than expected to hand over the keys.
