And the saga draws to a close – we are all moved in. OK, that’s a lie. We had a change of plan wherein we realized that the big 26 foot moving truck was in no way going to fit into our storage unit area. So anyway, we got about half of our stuff packed Wednesday night, then Ash was out of town all Thursday. I came home and did a bit but when he got home, we got hardcore. We packed from about 8 until midnight and then called it quits. Friday, we took off all day, finished getting it in early on. At 9 we went to the bank for our cashier’s check, then went home to get the truck and drive it to the new place. On the drive back, we got a call from our agent saying that the other agent (who is a renowned pain in the ass) smelled gas in our house. Mind you, this was only 2 hours from closing!

SO, we met our guy at the house and waited for a city person to come check for leaks. In the meantime, I had to do the walk through on the other place. From there, I met Ash and the agent for the first closing, which was on the old house of course. The leak thing turned out to be a nothing burger. The city guy checked for natural gas and propane, which we used to have. He found nothing. I have to wonder if this agent was just making things difficult. In talking to multiple people – agents, buyers, financial folks – they all said she’s just kind of a bitch. LOL. Well, she proved it!

Anyway, closings both went fine; we were able to squeeze a meal in between, which is good since Dakota was with us, seeing as how her daycare was closed for Good Friday. We had to go back to the last building on the second closing twice because they forgot stuff but hey, it turned out ok. The people we bought from were super nice and I just feel really good about that whole thing.

Our friend James met us at the new house to help unload the truck. It went a whole lot faster with him there! Once I got the boys, we did some unloading, some exploring of the space, and then went to dinner. Saturday and Sunday were all unpacking, rearranging, figuring out new systems for everything. I tried to get through it all but knew that was unrealistic. It’s one box at a time, one room at a time.

So today I am back at work and trying very hard to wrap my mind around “normal life”. The entire move took up so much of my life that I can barely think about everything else. In fact, Ash and I were remarking how long the weekend felt. We are unable to get DirecTV at the new place (too many trees) so we went without TV. Though we’re going to do SlingTV, we had nothing over the weekend and I feel like we are more productive. It just feels like we have more time. We didn’t waste time just sitting in front of a screen.

SO, I have to find a way to start feeling settled again and it’ll be a long road but again, new house!!


Freebies are good!

Here are a couple I just discovered/encountered.

  1. I hate moving (packing, moving, turning old things off, getting new things set up, unpacking), but I really, really hope to relocate someday. I love my current place and it’s been home for many, many years, but I’m a gypsy at heart and feel the need to wander again – even if it’s just to a different home in this general area. I hope you and your family have many happy memories and much more quality time in your new home!

    Loved your musical selections, especially the Lazerhawk one!

  2. WOW! That was really an adventure I’d say, but at least it’s all over and it’ll be a while for you to be settled in your own home & once you start making some memories there it’ll feel like home I’m sure. CONGRATULATIONS!!! And girlfriend take one day at a time you’ll be just fine! BIG HUGS & THE TUNES YOU SHARED ROCK!!! THANKS for taking the time to rock out with us from your so busy schedule.

  3. Glad to hear you finally got moved into your new place. I don’t know what to think of this realtor. That’s her livelihood, why would she be difficult to work with is beyond my comprehension. Perhaps after everything is completed you write a review on her or at the very least let her company know that she needs an attitude adjustment, assuming she doesn’t own the realty business she represents. πŸ˜€ Thanks for joining us on the dance floor. Sorry for boogieing so late!

  4. WooHoo! You’re moved into the new house! Let the fun begin! And here I am, a year in to my new place, and I STILL have stacks’o’boxes to finish unpacking. πŸ™‚ I’m hoping when the weather gets nice I can finish up, because having a detached garage thwarts winter transfer of stuff from the house to the garage. πŸ˜‰

    Great song choices – thanks for the introduction, and for the dance! πŸ™‚

  5. I haven’t had to move in over 30 years and I am dreading the day I have to. But you are moved in. Kudos, and time to try to take a breather – with children, I know you can’t! Know what? I found, the several times in my life I lived without TV, I was better off with out it. And, I am getting to feel the same about the Internet. Just sayin’ – enjoyed both musical selections, too.
