ARRRR .....Too much sugar makes me goofy!
What a fine mess and a lot of fun. About 1 month into our listing we received a bizarre call from the realtor. A couple wanted to see our house for the second time and in less than an hour. We packed up the kids and left for the evening. That same night we sold our house with the contingency being that we close in 10 days. 16 years of married life, with 4 kids, leads to an enormous amount of stuff. I went from being thrilled to overwhelmed.
All things considered, we sold the house for our asking price, bought a beautiful new home on Catawba Island with a water view, packed up, moved out, and moved into our new home in 14 days!
DON'T FORGET MY MONKEY
WE MADE TIME FOR FRIENDS BEFORE LEAVING
THE LOVELY ELIZABETH AND AUBREY
Our first night in the new house was Christmas Eve. Santa was very busy getting presents wrapped since he didn't know where he would find us until the last minute. Unfortunately, in all the blessed chaos we were unable to find the camera. Aubrey's first Christmas had to be documented with a few fuzzy, but better than nothing, cell phone shots.
NEW HAIR FROM SANTA
Now, to get up to date - we have been in our new house for 2 1/2 weeks. I have tackled almost all of the boxes. My treasured books are going to stay in boxes until Dave is able to build me some book shelves. My van is finally in the garage, but Dave's car is not. He has worked so hard for so long his shoulder is causing tremendous pain. He was not able to finish putting up shelving and racks for all the lawn equipment that we no longer need here.
Look at my ring!
Today was the first day I did not have to go to the laundromat, yeah! Dave got the gas dryer installed. Above are pics of Aubrey showing off the fancy 25 cent ring she got in the laundry's vending machine.
