Today is the day!


I am sitting in our hotel suite with nothing to do. What you say? Nothing to do on moving day? LOL I am saying that too! I have been going every minute for four days now and even though it has been busy everything has gone perfectly thanks be to God! Every thing is moved out of our "old" home and in the trucks waiting, the house is cleaned and ready for the new owner. She is buying it today also, after she closes on the house she has sold. Three closings in a row today! Pray for it all to go smoothly :) Now I am waiting for our house to close at 2:30 and then we move in! Woooo Hooo! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. This picture is the picture of the entry - of the model like our home. I am hoping to use this house for home group, bible studies etc. for my church and I hope to be able to share as the Lord makes known to me. All of course if my husband agrees! It is a beautiful home and because of the economy and housing sales being so down we are able to afford it. I am so grateful, I don't believe that this is something I am entitled to and neither does my husband. He has worked very hard to be where he is and thanks God for the brains He gave him! I know that sounds funny to some but others will understand what I mean :)




These two pictures (of the model again) are of my new kitchen. Come and hang out on one of the barstools while I cook up a gourmet meal! Well ok, I try to cook gourmet meals and on occasion am pretty successful but all in all I really hope since this kitchen is so much bigger I will make a better effort at cooking more often and cooking healthy meals for my family. So come and hang out with me! I think there is actually enough room to have scrapbooking get-togethers in here. Between the island, bar/counter area and breakfast table we can sit about 12 people! So lot's of thoughts in my mind while I wait. OK enough said - thanks for reading!
