In the picture about we said farewell to our first home! It is moving time!
The other day Asher grabbed a small box and in it placed 3 handfuls of Hotwheel cars and various other small toys. He grabbed it and started dragging it to the door and said “I’m going to da new home. See you later”.
Oh how I wish this process was that easy!
We closed on our new house last Friday and gained possession on Monday.
We are tired and sore after a week of packing, moving, lifting,and cleaning.
We are currently living in a bit of disarray between two houses, which is awesome with two babies *sarcasm*.
We had hoped to be into our new home pretty quickly but it wasn’t as “clean” as the previous owners made it to be so it has taken longer than expected to get the house unpacked and in order. Tip: no matter what the other owners say, always, ALWAYS pay to have the house professionally cleaned before moving in. Why I didn’t think of this I don’t know but it would have been worth any amount of money.
Currently this is the status of our new home….boxes, bags, clothes, cleaning supplies, EVERY. WHERE!
Despite the chaos on that end there is still an overall feeling of excitement and joy as we embark on this new adventure. Asher is so excited to be in “da new house” with his “playground” in the backyard and we are excited to begin making this house our new home.
We are signing to close on our first home today. It is such a bittersweet event. I know it is just a house but this house was our home for almost 5 years. It is where our lives as newlyweds began. It is where we brought our babies home from the hospital. It is where so many of their milestones happened. So many friends and family events have taken place here. *tears*
In all seriousness though I am super excited to be getting settled into our new home. Things haven’t gone as smoothly as I had hoped but it probably wasn’t realistic to think it would with a toddler, an infant, and a house full of five years worth of stuff.
Hopefully I will be able to find time to blog and update on our lives during this process but if not know I will be back when the dust settles.
