After four or five postponements from the lawyer, we finally closed on our home! This past week has been a whirlwind of moving, unpacking and getting settled in. On top of that, it took us four days to get internet up and running, but here we are at last.
Hubby managed to take just a few days off to get us through this, but we're very pleased with how much we've accomplished in such short time. Most of the rooms are at least 50% done (if not more), we've started a half-acre garden, killed about a dozen fire ant hills (ewww!) and moved the clothesline poles to a more suitable location (sorry, but letting my undergarments flap in the breeze less than ten feet from the road was NOT acceptable!)
One of the (many) things that fills my heart with joy right now is how easily we've all taken to our new home. Even my little guy has slept every night in his own bed, in his own room, instead of crawling in between Mommy and Daddy around 2am. I'm so proud of him!
I swear, I'm floating on cloud nine right now. After spending so many years in a small house with no yard on a busy street, it's just so blissful to have space, a big yard, and a street that sees about fifteen or less cars a day. Heavenly, I tell you. Simply heavenly.
It's just so good to be home at last!
