As you can probably tell from the title of this and my last blog entry, I am pretty stoked to be the sole owner of my new home. It really is pretty. And its mine! Yay me!!
Last Friday morning, I took the girls to school a little later because of the crazy icy/snow roads. I picked up the keys to my new house at the title company at 9:30 and went to the house. It was nice to walk in and just absorb it all by myself. The ceilings are really tall and the floors are wood and tile. The acoustics ROCK!
I always dig good acoustics because I am a singer so I broke in the house with a few songs. It was fun. Then the phone started ringing.
I kid you not, my phone rang OFF THE HOOK all day long! The homeowner's insurance guy, some friends who wanted to help paint, the ex asking me to come back to the old house to pack more, guys from work, other friends just checking in... From about 10:00 a.m. til 12:00 midnight, I was running around like crazy or painting or on the phone or directing contractors. What an exhausting day! But by midnight, the house was freshly painted and ready for move in.
Saturday morning came too quickly for me. The movers were at the door by 7:00 a.m. I was barely hanging in after the day before but somehow managed to get all of our "stuff" moved to the new place. Even the movers were looking at me with concern since my eyes were baggy and I was dragging myself the whole day. It finally got to where I couldn't answer any more questions about where the boxes should go. I declared, "Put everything in the garage!"
After yet another late Saturday night, I spent all day yesterday trying to get rooms in order and boxes unpacked. I still have loads of boxes in the garage to go through. Frankly, the fact that the girls and I have beds to sleep in, clothes to wear and food to eat is a miracle.
Looks like March will be a month of boxes...
