I wrote a Mother's Day Post..... never finished it.
I have sat down about five times in the 2 days to write about our move...... never finished it.
I hope I can get this post finished before I have to take the kids to school!
God is good and we are moved!
In the last three weeks with the help of our community, family, friends, and complete strangers, we have deep cleaned, moved walls, widened hallways, widened doorways, moved furnace flues, put in an air conditioning unit, done a ton of landscaping, built a walk-in closet, removed old ugly paneling, fixed dry wall, built a ramp off the back deck, re textured, professionally painted the whole house, passed numerous inspections, fixed and turned on the sprinkler system, fixed and added lighting, laid new floors, replaced old vents for new and moved in. To add icing to the cake we are about ninety percent un packed!
To add sprinkles to the icing we got an offer on our house yesterday.
We had all of our belongings packed up on Wed. night and started moving on Thursday morning after Makenzie had PT. It was an absolutely perfect move and the out pouring of help we received leaves me speechless!
We moved in on top of the floors being finished so anything that could not go into the basement ended up in the garage on Thursday afternoon. They finished the floors about 6 pm and we were able to get the beds into the rooms upstairs and avoided staying at a hotel.
I packed a suitcase with three days worth of clothes and medical supplies and didn't let that bag out of my sight! It worked because I had what I needed and there was no frustration over not being able to find anything.
Now that my house looks like a home I am feeling very overwhelmed with emotion. We have already made so many memories here. We had a BBQ. We have hung out on the deck with friends after the kids were in bed with drinks and much laughter.
We got a gate up in front of the stairs and Makenzie was able to walk all over the house...... literally. She came and found me in my room. She was so proud and I cried! She chased Morgan around in his walker and was in the middle of all the action, loving every moment!
While moving was a lot of work and I would be lying if I told you I didn't get frustrated, tired, and crabby, it was all so very worth it! This house is PERFECT! This is a home that we can live in FOREVER! This is a house that provides every member of this family exactly what they need. I LOVE IT and have yet to miss "home"!
