Enjoying the weekend in my new home!

This is the first chance I’ve had to sit down at my computer since last week. As you can tell by the post title, everything worked out and we’re in our new home. After the mad rush to sign papers and close on the new home, they were able to get us keys before the movers even arrived to load our belongings. The whole move took about 4.5 hours, and there was some heavy rains at times, but it wasn’t really as bad as it could have been. My awesome mom showed up to help just before the movers arrived. We were all up late on Thursday unpacking essentials (after going out for dinner). We started Friday morning off in high style with belgium waffles, eggs, and sausage, and and of course coffee. šŸ™‚ The waffle maker and all the fixings came in a wonderful gift basket from our real estate agent. I have to say that everyone has been so helpful and understanding during this stressful time, and they all worked together to get us moved on schedule even though the bank had us closing late.

My mom and I went back to the old house and gave it a THOROUGH SCRUBBING. Well, my mom really did all the scrubbing… I helped a little. The house is cleaner than when we moved in! Here’s hoping we might get back some of our deposit, even after breaking the lease.

After a busy morning of slaving away, I took my mom out for her first pedicure. We needed some pampering and I think it’s safe to say that she loved the experience. I keep laughing because while picking our polish colors we accidentally chose the exact same color as each other. Out of the huge selection of choices, and without discussing it. Too funny!Ā  šŸ™‚

We’ve actually made huge progress in unpacking. I’m hoping that we might even have all the boxes empty today. It would be great to return them and then take my time getting the rest of the house to my liking over the next week. Mom and I should even have time for a little side project today: refinishing my very old coffee table. Should be fun. And don’t worry, we’ll do it outside and I won’t be sniffing any fumes!Ā  šŸ˜›

TTFN, I’ve got another busy day ahead.Ā Ā  šŸ™‚
