House Buying/Selling

I have been wanting to move for a couple of years now, we are overcrowded in our house etc. Plus I like to move to new places (comes from moving so much growing up) LOL! I am so done with this one. However I must add at this point our next one is going to be our last home for quite a while. Anyway we had signed a contract picked out a house to build and everything was good. Then they hadn't completed the paperwork yet and I got to thinking, hmmm waiting 8 months, moving to an apartment then moving again, much less finding one that takes 3 pets etc. was going to be a hassle. So I mentioned to my husband - why don't we look at some houses that are ready? Good idea. So we did. So for the last 4 days we have gone around with the real estate agent looking at houses, making a bid, waiting, hearing someone else made a bid - looking at more homes on and on.

In the meanwhile we are packing boxes, got a storage unit and a home stager is coming Weds. to tell us what furniture, pictures and chotchki's (sp?) to move around or store. I was already told to remove my entire craft room and let the dining room be the dining room (you see that on HGTV all the time "show the room for it's intended purpose"). The moving guys come Friday to put it all in storage. So needless to say I haven't even seen my stamping or scrapbooking stuff since middle of last week. I will keep you posted but it is looking like for the rest of this week I may not get to make anything :( Please bare with me, I will get back to it!!!

How exciting! Hey, don't worry about it, life happens.

I wish you the best in finding the right house.

Take care, Lori.

Congratulations on getting the house. It's beautiful. Hey, will Rachel and I be your first guest? Send more pictures as you get a chance.

OK, so you got a house from what Jan said? Tell about it when you have a chance.

Thank you! We accidentally came across the idea to get this house and then someone else was going to bid on it and they didn't so we jumped on it. It all happened within two days! Jan you will be our first guests! Woo hoo!

After the nastiness of packing and unpacking ends I look forward to seeing lots of pics of your new home and scrapping area! VERY EXCITING indeed!
