Here is the house I sit in, preparing for the big move.
Of course, currently there is no green grass or sunflowers; it’s just bare winter brownness.
Our tentative closing date is March 30 on our Habitat house. A house with TWO bathrooms. And five bedrooms. Here’s hoping the squish factor will diminish significantly.
So I’m in the list phase right now. I’ve got a list for stuff to get rid of, a list of stuff to do, a list of stuff to buy, and a list of stuff for my husband to make (he’s into woodworking in various permutations, including furniture and cigar box guitars.)
In addition, we’ve still got 100 sweat equity hours to get done, classes every Thursday, monthly budgeting, and meetings involving lots of paperwork.
I want to pack. I want to move boxes. I want to do something that involves physically making this happen.
But for now I will sit with my lists and my spending plans and my dreams. I have a feeling that the rest is coming like a speeding freight train.
Feel free to jump in and share your home buying or house moving experiences during any of my homebuyer updates. It’s supposed to be one of the more stressful events in a person’s life, and the stories we create as we live through these events make up part of who we are.
