Moving Week! Eastward bound...
Well the countdown is on! We are moving in just 4 days. I knew this week would come fast. It also has approached us not stress-free of course. We had some issues with our appraisal the first time around, so they did a second one and it didn't come back until today! Yikes. Talk about waiting until the last minute. There was a chance we would have had to move our closing and move date, so we were very nervous and stressed. But all is good today and we can move forward as planned- yippee!
A lot of the packing is done, but there is a little bit more to do. I am sure we will be doing little by little up until the last night, but somewhow it all gets done!
This week will be busy with me teaching my last classes at the Southdale YMCA (BOO!), our last ECFE class, and then Braden will be headed to grandpa and grandpas for 3 days (I will be sad to see him off, but we will be able to get so much more done). Then after his departure, we have the walk-through, closing, the loading/unloading, cleaning and yes - all the unpacking (and who knows how many weeks or even months that will take)!
So, hopefully when all three of us are in our new home together come this Sunday this is what we will look like from our front porch! :)
Until I can blog again after the move, adios to townhome life and hello to house living!!!! There are things I will miss about this area like my classes at Southdale Y, the restaurants and shopping, the friends I have made this way, the lakes and parks, being somewhat close to downtown, etc...But I am thrilled to have more space, neighbors with kids, an attached garage, a big kitchen for entertaining, being close to my sister and other family, having a yard, good paths/walking trails in my neighborhood and not crossing busy streets, a pool/movie theater/parks and ice rink all in walking distance and the list goes on (did I mention having more space yet???)!!!!!
It is an exciting next chapter for the Hammonds....Woodbury, here we come! I am going back to the east side of the river, where it all began for me. :) The west-side has treated me well for over 12 years but it's time to return to my roots!
