Moving Along

We are moving along on the house. We started escrow a few days ago and DH and I spent last Saturday going through our house and getting rid of stuff. We took an entire car full of stuff to donate after we were done and we're still not finished. I love clearing out the clutter. I also packed up the first box that day too. That means a lot of my craft stuff is in a box for the foreseeable future. We are getting really excited about this move.

Moving Along

Over the last week or so we've done a few things to get ready for moving.  I went through my craft room last week and moved a ton of stuff out of it.  All stuff that I'm putting in the garage sale pile.  I'm glad we're finally going to get rid of some stuff.  Now I just need to get DH to go through his office. 

Also, I've been pretty sick.  The doctor thinks it's my gallbladder, but we spent the morning in the ER and they didn't think that was it.  They gave me some medication so I'm feeling quite a bit better now, but I think it's starting to wear off.  But I go back for another appointment on Monday and I'm really happy about that since it means we might finally have an answer. 

In the last week we also signed some paperwork so we could start moving on our loan and get that approved.  That was exciting because it means we're really buying a house.  We're also looking at a closing date of September 2nd, which is a few weeks earlier than we thought we'd be closing.  I can't wait to move. 

It's starting to feel like we really are buying a house.  Now we just need to get back in there and do a couple inspections.  I'm really looking forward to moving into our new house and turning it into our own space.  I'm also looking forward to having some color on the walls.  We've lived with white walls for so long and I'm looking forward to being able to change that. 

So that's all for the update.  Still no crafty projects, but in the next month or so we should be starting some work on the house.
