You can find me

Since I’m, finally, done schooling the boys, I can go back to work outside of home. Hopefully I remember how to speak, professionally, with adults. Just sayin’.

Anyway , because we’ll be moving this weekend, I’ve started applying for jobs posted on Indeed. In doing so, I uploaded my resume, in case anyone out there is looking to hire someone with my qualifications.

Sure enough, the next day, I was contacted by an Escrow company who found my resume, and was “Interested in [my] Title Industry background, and would like to discuss employment opportunities.”
Phone Interview
We spoke this morning, during an “initial telephone interview”, and now I have a “second, more formal interview” next Thursday!

(Two days after we get to our new house!)

I’m so excited!

Our Realtor just sent us THESE pics of our new pond and waterfall, with the message, “Your fish are waiting for you!”

I told her our daughter has been asking us for a frog, and she sent THIS pic, and said, “There’s plenty for her here!” lol

Then she sent THIS one, and said, “The Azalea bush is for YOU!”

I love it!

I’m so grateful for all of it, and I promise to be the best person I can be, toward everyone, always.

I, honestly, could not have asked for a more amazing life. I have no words that can explain the joy and contentment I’m feeling right now.

“The American Dream is one of success, home ownership, college education for one’s children, and have a secure job to provide these and other goals.”
~Leonard Boswell

Check, check, check, and check…If that statement is true, then we are definitely living the dream!

I love our life, and I love being an American. Just sayin’.

Today, we received invoices and confirmation of the repairs that were made; electrical, the reverse osmosis system installation, shed roof repair, plumbing repair, and window replacements. My father-in-law met with our Realtor at the house yesterday, for the final inspection and said everything looks good.

The lawn was mowed Tuesday and the lawn guy worked on the pond and waterfall, which was running perfectly yesterday (according to our Realtor and my father-in-law). The ice in the pond has melted, so there are Koi fish swimming around in it. (I’m excited to see it in person.) There’s a fire pit right next to the pond and waterfall, so it’s going to be a nice area to relax in, day or night.

My father-in-law said everything is green now, and that the flowers are starting to come out, so it’s going to look beautiful when we get there. (He’s going to mow the lawn for us next week, because he’s awesome like that.)

The seller signed all closing documents today, and we will be signing ours tomorrow. The lender has already wired funds to the title company, so we should have access to the house right after closing, tomorrow morning. We don’t know what day the kids’ rooms will be painted, but I would imagine it’ll be this weekend, sometime.

We are donating most of our furniture to my brother’s kids and their mom, so we will be renting a Uhaul on Saturday, so we can deliver it to them. We also plan on taking a trip to the dump that day.

Sunday, I’ll probably pack up whatever we have left out around the house, and on Monday, I plan on packing whatever is left in the kitchen. Tuesday we’ll be unplugging the refrigerator, so it’ll thaw, and Wednesday night, we’ll unplug the washer. We’ll probably start taking everything from upstairs…downstairs, Wednesday as well.

Thursday we will pick someone up from the airport, who has volunteered to drive the Uhaul for us. We’ll also be picking up the Uhaul and RV, and start loading as much as we can, before it gets dark. Friday morning, the carpet cleaners are scheduled to show up, and that evening is my sons’ college graduation, so we’ll be going there. We’ll be meeting family members who are coming to celebrate with him, at my grandparent’s house after the ceremony.

Saturday morning, our landlady will be here to do the final walk-through and we’ll be delivering the keys to her at that point. Then we will be on our merry way, starting our road trip/cross country move, to our new house!

Internet, cable, phone, and all utilities have been scheduled to be turned on at the new house, so all should be ready, when we get there. (Internet, cable, and phone will be installed the day after we arrive). Yay!

It’s going to be a busy few days, but we’re all very excited.
