The Countdown Begins

Launch of a Titan II rocket

10-9-8-7 ....

Only 10 days until our walk-through of the new house!  It doesn’t seem possible – and at the same time it seems like it is taking forever.  In the next 10 days, they have to install carpeting, build a deck, add stone to the front of the house, install the appliances, and do touch ups.  Seems like way too much stuff to get done in 10 days – but I figure if Holmes on Homes can do it — this team can definitely do it!

We’ve started our list of things we need for the new house – and then we need to prioritize it. It will be interesting to see if Pat’s priorities are the same as mine.  I think we are both in agreement that the first thing we need to buy is the garage door opener – we’ve definitely been spoiled this past year by having a garage in which we can actually put a car – and not store all of Pat’s ‘treasures’.  Next will be a grill and outdoor furniture so we can start having barbecues again for the family and friends.

It’s going to be a busy week — we can’t get in the house so Pat will be doing a lot of ‘peeping’ through the windows.  Hopefully, we will be able to get some pictures – and that none of them are with Pat in handcuffs for trespassing!

  1. I am so excited.This is nearly as much fun as moving house myself. I can see all that is going on but I am not involved in the ‘stress’
