House Sale

Well, the buyer agreed to the new terms and we've sold the house. In two weeks we'll begin moving our belongings into the rental in Jefferson. We'll have two more weeks to get everything out of this house and have it all cleaned up for it's new owner. It's bitter sweet. I'm thrilled and excited to move into this new place but I sure would have liked to complete this project. I hope the new owner will let us come see what he does. I will miss my old neighbors and I hope the new neighbors, although further away, will be even half as friendly as the ones we have here. I'm grieving the convenience factor but looking forward to the space. Currently I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around moving again. What should I pack first? Where is everything going to go? It will be helpful to have some time to talk to Andrew tonight. We've only had a brief conversation about this, now that it's a reality. Really we tried hard not to go too far down the road of "what if's" so there is a lot to discuss.

The kids are very excited that they will be moving next to one of their new best friends, "Screamer". Screamer is the name they gave to the very animated donkey that lives next door to the Jefferson house. He's greeted us loudly each time we've been to the house. It will be nice to kind of have a pet without really having it. I'm curious how our cat will transition. Last time it was fairly traumatic and she's been more edgy ever since.

All of this still seems so unbelievable! Now, please pray with us that there will be no purchase offers on the rental house for at least 6 months.
