It really hasn't hit me yet but we closed on the house today! We will soon be in our own place, free to do and be who we are w/o restrictions (well other than legal ones...lol).
It feels good to have had the carpets steam-cleaned this afternoon! The previous owner came to show us how to use certain things in the house - what a sweet lady, we are so blessed to have found this home. It's hard to describe the connection i feel towards her and the house but there is a huge reason we 'lucked' into it - yet to be revealed. We have taken one load of boxes over to the house and plan to take 2 loads tomorrow. My wonderful husband and son are at the storage now (10:45pm) loading up what we will take in the morning and Seth and I will do another load tomorrow.
The rest of the week proves to be busy but not overwhelming as i am making sure to keep a watch on my activity level. Being about 5 or 6 weeks from giving birth is really making me tired more and more so I am doing my best to listen to my body and not do too much while still feeling that i am not being stagnant. It is probably good that i am pregnant or we would be moving everything RIGHT NOW...lol.
Saturday is the big moving day and my only real concern besides the heat is how to heck we will get the trampoline moved safely. I really really really don't want to have to take the springs out of it and put it back together. We have removed the safety net and the legs but the round part is still in tact...i want it to stay that way if we can.
I hope i can sleep tonight - just thinking about all the stuff there is to do and the fact that i *want* to do it is keeping me awake right now...lol. I think Seth is more excited than he is letting on - he has said "We have a house" about 3 times today. He is mapping out the painting and overall layout of his room in his head (sharing bits and pieces at times). It is neat to see he and Aden getting used to the idea. Great fun and experiences ahead for us Putnam's!
