We are now "OFFICIALLY" home owners!

Friday, May 16, 2014

TGIF!! ...and what a Friday it has been! We closed on our home today at noon - emoticon emoticon ....:::Happy! Everything progressed smoothly, and at the end of the day, we were cut a check. emoticon I joked with my DH that we were emoticon PAID to move!

But isn't it Amazing how God works everything out! We have an interest rate of 3.75%....totally mind boggling, right? emoticon emoticon ....& great insurance rates too. I will miss working with our real estate agent as he is a gem!
He has become a family friend now. Lol!

Wow! ....::::As I sit here in our old home surrounded by boxes just reminiscing, I am thankful for the memories we have made for the past 14 years...and how I look forward.....::::to the wonderful years ahead of us! I can only imagine the blessings God has in store for us! He has poured out such a blessing

So far, I have called just about every single business to update our address, turned on our utilities at our new home, contacted our post office, e-mailed friends, family, businesses...etc, my checklists are completed..:::for now. Yay! It feels great to have made a dent in transferring our mail. I thrive off of check lists. emoticon

The floor installers will get to work replacing our floors with hardwood around Wednesday of next week, and the kitchen installers will take a template of our kitchen counters to use to cut the new granite. In the meantime, I will be sanding, priming & painting kitchen cabinets, painting walls, and moldings, and cleaning of course. How much fun it is to have the freedom to design the interior of my own home.

All of next week will be consumed with our final preparation to move.....lots of painting before floors are installed ( I will need ENERGY!), need new door locks, and a BIG clean-up after floors are finished. I predict that we will be sleeping there by Memorial Day. emoticon
Then last of all, our kitchen counters will be installed...I chose a nickel brushed kitchen faucet and sink, as well as matching hardware for the cabinets. After the dust has cleared....we will settle in.

I want to say emoticon to my SP freinds for praying, supporting and caring for us as we move. Means the world emoticon ....::::to me!
