Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

Today we closed on the house. I am glad to say that all the millions of forms needed for this are signed and done. For some odd reason this all makes me think of the song "Closing Time" by Semisonic. That is why the title of this post is what it is. lol I guess this lyric works for us because it is just up from here. :)We are packing all of our things up and planning on moving Friday night. I can honestly say that we are both totally stoked. WooHoo!

Moving day , Moving day, we can't wait 'til moving day!!

So, the loan has been approved and the previous owners have moved out. We will be closing this week and moving by this weekend. We are so grateful that Monday is a holiday because that gives us time to move and unpack. I am running around crazy packing things up. I hope that I am not driving my hubby crazy.(Honestly, I think he was crazy before me. Lol. Just kidding!)

I can't believe this day is almost here. I am going to miss living out here in the country. I will miss almost hitting chickens and turkeys daily. I will miss the occasional racoon in the middle of the dark road and the skunks running out in front of my car and also creeping down into the ditch out front. I will miss the deer wandering around. I will miss the cows mooing, chicken clucking,and geese honking late at night and keeping me awake. I know this sounds like I really won't miss this but honestly I will. There is so much peace and beauty down here. I wish we didn't have to go back to the city!

It's a........

It's a go!!! After much headache we are finally done with getting all of the documents for the loan and have been told that we will be closing on the house on the 27th!!! I am soooo super excited!! Even though I am very excited, I truly will miss the place that we call home right now. It is so difficult to go from the country to the city. I find this quite funny because I am a city girl that supposedly didn't like the country. Go figure!

waiting and waiting and waiting......patiently???

We are officially in the process of buying the home we mentioned in the last post. We are just waiting to hear back on the loan. We are both so anxious to get moved in and start planting our garden. I think I am more excited about the garden than Dan but I think that is due to all the work I have planned to do all at once...if possible. We should have a definite on things by next week. Until then cross your fingers!!!

Last Friday, the 30th, was our first anniversary. We spent the weekend watching tons of movies and furniture shopping. (What a strange combination!!!) It was sooo fun!!! I wish, however, that we would have been able to go on a trip but now I have something to look forward to next year. :)

By the way, we just finished up another month of classes. We both had the highest grades in our classes. (Dan had a finance class and I had a database building class) Wahoo!!! We ROCK!!!
