We signed papers today and even though we won't officially close until tomorrow or the next day, the sellers were nice enough to give us the keys tonight. So, here I am at 11:30, finally calling it quits. We took an entire load over (a trailer full, truck full, and honda pilot full).
Once we unloaded to the garage, we thought - what the heck! Let's start unpacking! And so we did. Not too much. Just a few boxes to be able to bring them back empty to fill again. We unpacked the important things. You know, the Christmas tree!
And, as luck would have it, I found Carter's little duckies right away to put on the cute shelf that the sellers left in the bathroom.
I have to admit, walking into our new home was more overwhelming that any other move I've made. We counted them up and between Chris and I, we have moved/helped move each other 11 times in the past 7 years. This is our 12th move between the two of us in 7 YEARS! But, this one is so very different. This is our first home that we together searched for and bought together to live in together without an end in sight. Every other home has been his or mine and we always knew it wasn't our "forever" home.
So, walking in tonight was a bit overwhelming. Tonight we walked into OUR HOME!
