Our new home

Monday, November 12, 2012

Hi ya'll,

Just an update on us. We closed on our new home Thursday evening. Makes it
so nice, because it is only 3 doors West of where we live now.
The house is larger than this one, and by the way we have rented for 12 years,
but this is a first time purchase for both of us.
Just think on that........a permanent home for us.

The new house has 2 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, of course kitchen, and a laundry
room, PLUS a den for the computers, and a dining area with a stained glass light
fixture, hardwood floor in the living room and dining room, with a fireplace and
built in bookcase. And, closets out of this world......YAY............
the small bedroom is more than twice as big as the small bedroom here.

A large yard with one tree in the back which is at least 5 feet around its' girth,
and last but not least, a 2 VEHICLE GARAGE, which.........is large enough to ride
the HARLEYS in one door and turn around to point out the other door, and my
truck will go in there, but Davids' truck is too big to go in the doors, both from
height and width...........poor baby...............so eventually, we will put up one
of those awning things for him to park under.

We are donating a lot of stuff, throwing lots away, gotta lighten the load.

So you know what I am doing this week, packing-packing-packing.......
...we have
a crew lined up to move the heavy stuff, and the neighbors across the street, the
2 brothers we befriended and help out, they load the trucks and then unload them.
Stuff does tend to accumulate................LOL
So now ya'll know where I have been.............

Blessings,
Darlene

    IT'S GOOD TO HAVE A NEW HOME AND ALL THE EXTRA SPACE, BUT ALL THAT CLEANING WILL BE LIKE A JOB. IT WILL KEEP YOU BUSY TOO AND HAVING A LAUNDRY ROOM IS A PLUS.NOW YOU CAN RELAX AND ENJOY IT TOO. YOU CAN EAT BY THE FIREPLACE AND WATCH IT GLOW. I LIKE MINE(HOUSE) AND HAVE ROOM FOR MY SON WHEN HE COMES IN FOR A VISIT. BUT IT'S NOT THAT OLD, B/C HE LIVED HERE WITH ME BEFORE HE MOVED OUT.

    Congrats on your own new emoticon to you and David! May you enjoy living there for a long time. We've been in this home for 32 years and it's a bit too big for us now that the girls have moved out over 17 years ago. DS is still living here. About time he went on his own.

    It sounds great. I'm happy for you guys. I blessed our house. I like feeling blessed. I've been trying to get rid of some of my things. I took a ton of stuff to the thrift store that helps battered women. I have more to do in the hallway linen closet but it's darker there and my eyesight is bad so I will have to force myself to just do it. May God bless your new house and may you get much joy from having it...Hugs, Bug emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations Darlene! I am excited for you and having your own home! There is nothing like a move to help get rid of all the junk. We need to act like we are moving. We bought this house 20 yrs ago (doesn't seem like that long) and we have really accumulated a lot of stuff. Enjoy your new home and may God bless you with many happy years living there.
