New Home Update

22 Jul

After a week of back and forth about items from the inspection, it looks like we really are going to be moving! The plan is to be moved in mid-August and we can’t believe how much we have to do between now and then. But, with some help from professional packers and movers, we will get it all done 🙂

Since we will be more than doubling our living space, we need some new furniture. Miss H had fun testing out all the chairs but the most fun was the old school phone. Kerry and I laughed about how she had no idea what a rotary phone was (or even a phone that had cords). And, this phone had no fancy features or the ability to swipe. She was greatly amused by it as we looked at sample colors. Everyone around us was laughing as she was calling Aunt Leigh, Uncle Chip, Tinkerbell, CInderella, friends from school and various other characters.

We have gotten slightly sentimental about our current home! While we lived here, we have gotten married and had Miss H. Miss H came hone here and learned to roll, crawl, walk, talk and all sorts of other wonderful things in this house. But, it will be nice to create new memories in this new house and it will be nice to have so much space and a big, huge yard.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Planning a move is a lot of work

10 Jul

Kerry and I both started making a list of things we need to and a want to do list for the move to the new house. And, it is getting long.

1. Book movers. DONE

2. Book our favorite painter. DONE

3. Schedule cable and internet install. IN PROCESS

4. Schedule alarm system install. DEPENDENT ON ABOVE

5. Buy living room rug. WAY TOO MANY CHOICES

6. Pick paint for living room and dining room. DEPENDENT ON ABOVE

7. Pick paint for Miss H’s room. She wants it to be ‘barina pink’ (translate to ballerina pink).

8. Buy a rug for Miss H’s room that will look nice with a ballerina pink room.

9. Pick a paint for our new room. WAY TOO MANY CHOICES

10. Pick out new furniture for our room. WAY TOO MANY CHOICES

11. Buy a riding lawn mower. This is on Kerry’s must list.

12. Complete inspection, appraisal and all the paperwork for mortgage. WILL BE COMPLETE BY FRIDAY.

13. Pack up our entire house. OVERWHELMING

14. Put our house on market. PENDING MOVING TO NEW HOUSE.

15. Let it sink in that we finally found a house and are moving in a month. IN PROCESS.

By tomorrow, this list will probably have 50 more items.

Here is a preview of our new digs. Kitchen is actually bigger than it appears in photo, plus there is an area for a table and pantry. So excited!
