So I guess I should start off with where I have been...
I have been inside 2 separate houses and various cardboard boxes, packing and un-packing and getting settled.
We moved just about everything in on Friday (thanks to all the awesome help we had!!) and spent the next few days getting the house all put together for my sister-in-law, Randee's baby shower that was on Tuesday.
Before you go calling me a "crazy woman", lemme explain..
We were originally supposed to close last Tuesday (the 22nd) but surgery for one of the sellers kept him from being able to put his Herbie Hancock to important paperwork which bumped us to Thursday (the 24th).. it was again bumped, to Friday (the 25th) due to difficulties with the underwriters on their loan at the old house, and so there you have it, I was really planning on a baby shower with a WEEK to get ready, not a measly 3 and a half days.
But I did it.
With LOTS of love and help.
It's been a week of firsts and lasts..
I won't lie when I say that I cried going to the old house one last time, taking the key off of my keyring, and laying it with the other keys for the new owners.
As soon as we walked in to get the last few things from the basement, the smell hit me.
It smelled just as it had the first time we walked through it almost 9 years ago.
That was weird.. we had been living there, that long, with our own smells and way of life, and the second we are out, it takes on it's old smell.
That made the memories come rushing back even harder.
I walked through, taking pictures of all the empty rooms, sniffling and being sappy.
It was a good house.
I will try to get more pics up as laundry is caught up, and Peyton's room is more put together..
Here's what I do have:
Ahhh.. jetted tub.
The bubbles seriously grew to over a foot deep in there.
Just part of my closet.
The only painting project..
This will be a craft room that doesn't hurt my eyes...
I had to get my Halloween stuff up.. it is Randee's favorite holiday. :)
I am also rockin' an awesome clod.. that helps to make life even more interesting. :)
Not to mention the birthday Ashley has coming up on Monday.. I was just reminded.
