Happy New Years Eve!
work was slow, thank goodness. I really wasn't in the mood to hustle today.
My FK's should be moving Friday. On the plus note, the social worker will contact me when it is time for them to go to grandma, and I will do the transport.
We closed on the house on Monday! Hubby has the keys. The seller left the washer, dryer, fridge and riding lawn mower. The mower needs some tinkering, but hey. I have lots of young men wanting to fine tune their mechanical skills.
I have free-cycled several items. I am trying to get rid of stuff before the trailer comes Wednesday. The goal is to have it loaded Wednesday night, and to get it picked up Thursday. Hubby flies in Thursday, we leave before the sunrises Friday.
I have the phone and power scheduled for shut off hear, and scheduled the phone hook up in the new place. Hubby already has the power, water and garbage service set up in the new place.
I have 3 1/2 days at my job. My last day will be Thursday. It seems so odd, getting ready to move. When we bought this place, we hadn't planned on moving again. I guess I am sad that we never got all the things done we had planned. I love the layout of the new house, but it needs ALOT of TLC.
My goal for tomorrow is to go thru more items and see if I can get rid of more things.
Stay safe tonite! My plan is to hit the sack, early.

Merry Christmas

It's been a great couple days. Hubby arrived home Tuesday night. It was raining hard on the way up to the airport. The airport was busy. I haven't been there in years. Jason's flight arrived on time.
Christmas Eve day, we spent almost 6 hours at the emergency room. Our youngest FK had a boil that had to be lanced. I was irritated to say the least. They weren't busy. The procedure itself didn't even take 5 minutes.
My family was already here for our Christmas Eve gathering. We do a white elephant gift exchange. We had a blast. I got a pair of fuzzy pink slippers and a big pancake spatula.
We got the papers for the house we are buying. We just need to take them to a notary tomorrow and sign them. The goal is to be closed by Tuesday.

Hubby and I were up before the kids. They didn't get up until after 730 this morning.
The kids had a great time opening their gifts.
The weather was decent. The kids spent several hours playing football.

My niece came over to hang out with the boys.

We had dinner at my parents. We are now at home, relaxing and enjoying being together.
The moving trailer is scheduled to be here the 7th. Hubby flies home the 8th. We will leave the 10 for the new place.

This week....

Its been an interesting week here.
We got an offer on our house. Its lower than we would have liked, but I don't want the house to sit on the market for months. We should close the end of January.
Our new house is suppose to close the end of this month.
I called the social worker, he says they are still working on paperwork. I scratch my head, how on earth in the days of computers can it take this long to do paperwork for kids to go to their family?
Even if they are in another state.

We have a trailer coming from UPack on January 7th. Jason will be home the night of the 8th, so that the next day he and the boys can load it up.
I will withdrawl the kids from school that day, Jason will have the luxury of enrolling them in school on that Monday.
Its been rainy here, with above normal temps. The other day at work, I was walking to my car and was sweating. I heard later that the temp was 66 degrees. I felt better, knowing there was a reason why I felt so warm.
Today my plan is to organize my garage and do more packing- fun times.
