New House!

Last night we heard back on our offer - we were surprised because we thought it would take some time due to the relocation agency. We countered a couple times and settled. We have a signed contract on our new home! Through the countering we're buying it "as is" after completing a termite inspection. I can't believe this is all working out so quickly and easily. God is so good to us! This one is nicer than the original home we were hoping to get that sold last week. God had other plans! I don't want to put a picture or the address on the blog so if you want more details email/facebook me!

We'll be moving on May 1st after closing on April 30th. I don't have any days off from work so I'm going to find a baby-sitter for Friday, May 1st so that Andy and any other men can load everything on the truck. We'll just have everything packed up that week so that while I'm at work the stuff can be moved. I'll HATE missing out on all the excitement! Then when I leave work I'll go to our new house and have the weekend to unpack.
The new house will be almost double the square footage! We'll be going from 1200 to 2300 sq. feet so we won't know what to do with all of our new space. With a basement, living room, and only 1 couch it'll be empty! I'm thinking for now the boys will probably use the extra bedroom downstairs as a play room. Not sure how it will all pan out yet! We're going back to see it tomorrow after church because I wanted to show my mom and dad the house. I'm so excited!

Congrats on the new house and congrats on not having to move a thing! That certainly worked in your favor. I'm sure you'll put your stamp on the new house soon enough.
