We moved!!!

We did it.  We purchased, remodeled and sold our fixer upper.  We closed last week and moved out on Saturday.  It was a long process, but truthfully, it went pretty fast.

I can't say I'm sad to have moved.  I liked the house but it was never mine!  I'm a full-time homemaker and serious homebody, so not having a house that was mine was tougher than I thought it would be.  I wasn't able to personalize it the way I wanted to or do things the way I wanted them done.  The bottom line was always how any changes would work for re-sale.  That being said, I hope the family who bought the house will be happy there.  It really is a great house.

We're Moving Tomorrow

I'm taking a break from packing to write an update on the house(s).

We put our current home, the fixer upper, on the market May 30th and had an offer the next day.  We closed on it this past week and will be moving out tomorrow.

We closed on the new house several weeks ago and have been working hard getting it in move-in-ready condition.  It will NOT be in move-in condition but we have to do it anyway.  The house had been vacant for at least a year or so and before that was a rental.  It's in pretty rough shape but nothing too horrible and so far no surprises.
