...We have a contract on our house!!!! It all just came about Monday morning and I haven't had a chance to blog about it till now. It happened really quickly~and we hadn't had anything going on for 3 weeks. Frankly, I was beginning to think our realtor had lost our number~and then, boom, it all fell into place. We are still in Arkansas, too, and I keep thinking about all the things I have to do when I get back to Alabama. (Kayren, it does feel like we've been gone for a month, even though it's really been just over 2 weeks).
Our trip was extended by a few days since Vince and my dad decided to check out a conference they were interested in down in Little Rock. So instead of leaving this past Monday we aren't headed back until tomorrow (Thursday). Unless they hi-jack that plan, too.....but they'd better not! I'm really tired of the outfits that I brought on this trip~heehee!!
So, yes, I'm very happy about moving back *home*, I'm sad to leave our Alabama friends and I'm excited/scared about all the new plans we are making. I'll share about those more in the future. Of course, our immediate plans are to find a house in Arkansas. We close on our house in Alabama on June 4th, so you see that doesn't leave us much time.
We looked at one yesterday morning and then I went with my sister to look at another yesterday afternoon (since Vince had already left for Little Rock). I really liked the second one and think it could be a good fit for us. But I've got some calls to make in the morning and I definitely want to check out some more options. I can't say that I enjoy doing this by myself, but since I'm the only one here to look I guess I'll do it!
Now it's crunch time. Gotta get busy packing boxes. Those few that I packed last fall are really all I've packed. I just didn't think stacked boxes looked good for house showings. Now I've got to make up for lost time!
So send all of your good moving tips my way, please!! We'll be moving ourselves, so give me all of the best DIY stuff you've got!
Our closing date just got bumped up to June 1st!!!!
