Whoa!

This is a quickie. Who knew that back on December 19th, 2008 when this started:



That exactly 5 months to the date later, this would be ours?



That's right. Tuesday, May 19th, 2009, we will be homeowners. Danny and I have spent the weekend packing, planning, and dreaming. Tomorrow night we do the final walk through where we get to check on everything and make sure it is still in tip top shape. Then we are coming home to try to wrap up the packing. Tuesday afternoon at 1:00 we meet to sign all of the paperwork. From what I hear, I need to bring a new pen because by the time we're finished, we will be out of ink. We are going to spend every evening this week cleaning and packing our little SUV full of boxes so that we can move as much as we can over ahead of time. The goal is the have the beds over on Friday night so that we can spend our first night there, and then we have a truck for Saturday AM. The hubby and I cannot wait and are looking forward to showing off our new home.

  1. There is NOTHING like your first home...it is like a first Love...you never forget it or the memories you make there. I know you will have MANY wonderful years there as it looks as if you have lots of room to grow in your new house. Sounds like you have the packing and moving thing all under control, but I'd expect you would in your excitement. We can't wait to see it!

  2. It is such an exciting time for all of you. It is so much fun even though it is a lot of work. You can do anything you want because IT IS YOUR HOME. Can't wait to see it when we come to Kansas City. Congratulations.

  6. Congratulations, again! So looking forward to seeing it and helping with your painting too!

    p.s. Don't worry about bringing a new pen. They will furnish the pen and it can be brought home with you after you have initiated it so well! ;-) Love you both.
