"To the left, to the left
Everything you own is in a box to the left"
(You're welcome... you will now be singing it over and over and over. I'm the best, aren't I?)
Anyway, this is the story of my life right now. Except it is more like "everything I own is in a truck to the left (of the driveway)". I can't stop singing it.
So I haven't updated things on our move to Atlanta. Partly because I've been so frustrated that I don't want to bring everyone down with my sadness and frustration. Partly because I don't want to jinx us. Today we got some good news so I can share!
So back up just a bit. We were in contract in a house that I posted pictures of here (mistake number one... don't post pictures of something that's not final). We were super excited and fairly far along in the process when we found out that the garage was sinking in and that it would cost up to $20k to fix. Uh... yeah. That's not going to happen. So we terminated the contract on a Friday in mid February and went to Atlanta to start over on the next day. I was devastated... more because of the prospect of having to start completely over, knowing that I was being kicked out of my house in Delaware at the end of February. We kept getting kicked when we were down. We ended up looking in a different part of town and fell in love. With multiple houses.
Long story short - we found a great house, put an offer in, it was sloooooowly accepted and we've been in contract since mid-February. Our buyer in Ohio graciously let us stay through the 16th of March... thinking that was plenty of time. Of course we could close in a month.
The second thing I've learned throughout this process is that never assume anything. Ever.
The process has taken longer than expected, and last Thursday, we packed all of our belongings. There were boxes everywhere!!!
Two Men and a Truck!!!)
So, I can officially say that I'm moving to Atlanta. We will get the keys to our new house next Thursday. I am a big 'ole ball of emotions right now.
Haha...and you thought that I would show you pictures... not a chance! Until those keys are in my hand, I'm not sharing that! But, I will tell you... it's way better than the first one that we were in contract on and that Tom and I are in love with it!!!
So excuse my absence, and my lack of commenting on your blogs (I have been reading!). Things will probably be a little crazy for maybe another week or two.
But crazy is good!
