Are we ready to move next week?
Thursday, December 12, 2013
I know, we just moved here this summer, but we have to move again. At least it is just down the street, within the same neighborhood.
We are on West Point, which has family housing run by a private contractor. When we picked the house we are in, we knew that it was scheduled for renovation before we are scheduled leave. We selected it planning that we may be able to upgrade. They originally told us that when our house went into renovation that they would move us into a house but we wouldn't have much say in what house and when we move. My DW pestered them a bit and finally they said to look at the houses currently under renovation and pick one. We did and they said it was available with a move in date in March.
Well, I guess the renovation was a bit ahead of schedule and they called me to ask if we were still interested in it and how soon could we move in. Ack! We weren't quite ready to move in yet, pre holiday and final exams is crazy enough without adding in a move on top of everything else!
We will get a chance to walk through the house on Friday or Monday. Then, because of the holidays and the short notice, they will hold the house for us until we can move in, probably mid to late January.
Not looking forward to the hassle of moving, but looking forward to being settled in our new house. (and not having to move again for another two and a half years, maybe longer).
(we were spoiled a bit in MA, being able to be in one place for 3 years. Our oldest daughter had lived in 6 different homes -NY, KS, TX, OH, TX, MA - by the time she hit her 4th birthday!)
