Busy Week

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

We have been very busy, but this week is by far the busiest for us. It is down to the wrapping and boxing of the dishes, pots and pans etc. A milestone happened today we closed on the home we have been living in for the past 44 years. The selling of our home was an inside job---our son bought our home. Friday we close on our new adventure in a subburb of Minneapolis; living in a 55+ co-operative. In the meantime with all the hours I have been getting ready to move I'm hoping it will help lose at least a few pounds--it sure is hard work packing up all that we will be taking. Thankfully, our son is fine with us living here until we move Friday, and coming back and to get some things we will leave for a few days like winter coats etc.

I hope your move went well. I will be looking forward to some pictures of the new place. That sounds really fun. I agree that it's special that your son is taking over the house.
I hope your weather continues to pretend it's really summer in Minnesota. Up here it's acting more like Sept which is a bad thing after the winter we all had.
Have a wonderful weekend.

    I hope the move went well and that you are getting your new place all fixed up the way you like it. It's great that your son could buy your house, the market here in the city is crazy right now and houses are selling so fast. He is blessed too that he knows just what he is getting in his new home and how well it has been taken care of over the years too.

    How nice that the house is staying in the family and that many more memories will be made there.

Hope all goes well with the move and that you enjoy your new home!

    Packing is always the hardest - especially the dishes. Wow - your move is finally here.

Nice that you can leave some things and you can pick them up later - will help with the stress.

Hope you enjoy your new place. emoticon

  What a big milestone! I hope that you are very happy in your new place. I'm sure it is bittersweet to leave your old home but it is nice that it is still in the family.
