We are moving again! I am so excited for the new house but really dislike, ok...hate moving! I just did this 9 months ago. Thankfully most stuff is still packed but there is the stuff we unpacked to make the apartment more homey feeling. We are moving our personal stuff like clothes, breakables and dishes ourselves but we are actually hiring movers this time! I am psyched!!! The movers we are using are very reasonably priced and will save us from rounding up our friends and renting a truck and feeding everyone. In all honesty it will cost just about $100 more for the movers and we keep our friends.
So, since we are moving and I am packing that leads to no sewing. I was in the mood and very ready but I have no room at the apartment to spread out fabric and Madeline can always see me so that means she wants me. In the new house we are turning the formal dining area into a work-out room slash craft room. The other part about not sewing in the apartment is she can hear the sewing machine and it wakes her up. Stinky I know. So the countdown begins to April 28th as closing day and 29th is when we are moving our personal stuff and the movers get us all in on Saturday the 30th. Oh yeah, and we are having Madeline's first birthday party in our new house two weeks after we move in. Very exciting and busy for us but we are so thankful to God for providing us just the right house! We looked at many homes and even had an offer on a different one but it didn't work out. This is the perfect home for us. When we put in our offer we offered a little lower than asking price and for a few pieces of the furniture (the house was a model home for a local builder and the furniture was negotiable) and also for the seller to pay closing costs. He came back asking for full price and would pay closing and give us all the furniture!!! Well that was a deal! The home is half way furnished! So see, God is GREAT and He had this perfect deal for us and if we wouldn't have waited on His timing we would have missed out completely. We are looking forward to many years in this home and really making it ours and welcoming to friends and family.
