Whew!

There have been some ups and downs this week regarding the purchase of our new home. We even thought we caught a few glimpses that it all wouldn't work out.

To make a long story short (and not bore you with all the details in between) God has smiled on us, and things have worked out. A week from today we will be the proud owners of our new home!

To add to the excitement, my parents are getting to come help us with minor repairs and updates! We haven't seen each other since Christmas, and a visit is long overdue. Avery looks forward to her Pop and Grammy's visit. She relates when they will be here with the fourth of July and fireworks. It's cute to hear her talk about how "Grammy and Pop will hear and see the loud fireworks, but it will be okay because Daddy is here to protect us from the scary noises."

So, if anyone wants to come help paint, rip up carpet, move furniture, caulk, trim trees, etc., you're more than welcome! ;)

I'm glad that things are working out for you guys with the purchase of your new home! I'm also happy that your parents are coming in town too. Christmas was quite a long time ago. I hope that things go smoothly with the closing of the house. Can't wait to see your pictures of the new place. Are you guys doing a lot of work to the place or just making it your own by decorating?

There are repairs that need to be made (a few new glass panes here and there, chimney fixes, minor electrical stuff, etc.) And then we're going to paint a few rooms, and redo the hardwood floors that are under the carpet in the bedrooms...so, part of it is to make it our own, but part needs to be fixed.

Hopefully we can get it done when my dad's here b/c he's the fix it man!

Could your dad stay with us a couple of weeks?

I love seeing the "old" hardwoods restored. I'm sure that you will get a lot done with your dad in town.

Are you having an overlap time, (being in both at the same time) so you can work all day then come home to sleep? Or are you working and sleeping in the new house? How long working? Working on a Saturday???? hint, hint...maybe we could make it down!

Our plan right now is to close on Thursday, then work all week until the following thursday...then be living there by that following weekend. I'm sure as we finish rooms, we'll move things over, but the big big stuff won't go until Thursday evening.

That following week, we'll be in Huntsville for coaching clinics...hope we can finish lots so we won't have to come back to a mess!

Baron's off work next week, so I hereby volunteer him to help. But don't take away from his time working on the "Honey do" list. :-)
