Today is the Day!

I have been completely remiss in my blogging duties as I've been packing, making endless phone calls about the mortgage and utilities, and stressing out all week about settlement today. But I have been tossing and turning since 5am so I thought I'd might as well get up! I will own a house in about 8 hours or so, here it is all finished (well, 99%):

They are going to fix the light pole and re-coat the driveway, and some of the wires hanging out the front will be taken care of once the utilities are switched over (I really need a couple of big topiaries or something to hide those horrible meters). Also, the lovely orange cone is already gone. I did my walk-through with Wes my construction manager yesterday, and the interior looks great!

This morning I am clearing up my desk at work and then will be off for a whole week working on settling in. My daughters have picked out their paint colors (be afraid... be very afraid!) so they will start working on painting today already while I finish getting ready for the movers to come tomorrow.

It's going to be a long, tiring weekend, but I am so ready to get in my new house!

Have a wonderful day,

Tracy, I know how excited you are. We moved into our first home about 18 months ago. There's nothing like walking in the first time after closing and knowing it's yours.

I'm so thrilled for you - and I can't wait to see the paint colors. Can't be any worse than the fuschia/purple combo my princess picked out.
