So Thursday Thoughts...
- Uber excited, family is coming to visit until Tuesday!
- I had a lean cuisine pizza for supper and it was yummy!
- I hope not having a life doesn't get boring, so far, so good.
- I have been cropping to my heart's content the last two days.
- The temp quarters are becoming more homey to us every day.
Off to help LilBlue finish that pesky senior paper that is due tomorrow...I will be glad when that is done, but I have learned a lot about the poet, Percy Shelley, mainly that he was a liberal nut case who traveled around a lot and cheated on his wife. Who knew?

LilBlue was under the weather our first day here...she had been up all night long at the house hurling every hour on the hour, then suffered through very noisey packers/loaders most of the day; then when we finally got to go to our new living area she quickly settled into bed for some rest.
We have fabulous storage!!!!!
A great area for TV watching and relaxing and eating!

While we consider ourselves pretty low maintenance it is still a huge thing in my mind that these kind people have allowed us to come into their home like this...I am humbled and feel extremely blessed. I am going to post some pictures soon of our new space!
The closing on the house is this evening at 5:00 p.m. or so. The new. soon to be, owners did their walk through last night and we didn't hear anything so I am assuming everything is still a go...I know I will continue to be a bit antsy until it is all finito.

- I am totally ready for SPRING
- I have way to much scrapbooking stuff
- Ziploc bags are your friend during a move
- There are dust bunnies even in a clean house
- Moving is always an adventure, this one will be no different
As they are here packing out all our worldly possessions I am a bit overwhelmed, but it is going well. I do not really enjoy being a "one man show" but that is my lot today. The movers have been good, we have a team of three, they are already done on the upper level, the main level is done with the exception of the kitchen, which always seems to take the longest and the lower level is coming along. So that only leaves the basement and garage which are pretty light but could be stretched if you don't want to be sent to another job; we'll see. I had hoped for a pack and load all on one day but they said, nope, so we will be loaded tomorrow and I hope it will all be completed by noon.
Since this was our first home to ever own, I have many different emotions swirling around in my brain today. I am proud of all the things we did to improve it...laying tile, putting down wood flooring, adding a bathroom, cabinets in the garage, landscaping, etc, but I am also ready to be out from under it. The costs of ownership really has been no different then anywhere else we have lived, we have done the same type of maintenance and upkeep as we usually do, however, the some of the projects have been a little more costly but well worth it. So as we move on, I have many memories of this home that I will take with me, mostly good with atleast one exception. The reselling process; which leads me to say...as of today I don't care if I am ever a homeowner again. My realtor says I will change my mind and that is quite possibly true, kind of like when you have just had a baby and say never again and then you do bring another life into this world. Not exactly the same but sort of in my world!
Anyway that's a glimpse into my thoughts today!
