Home

Yesterday at 5pm we got the final loan approval and Clear to Close from our lender! The closing will officially happen Monday or Tuesday and we are so grateful we were able to keep the movers scheduled for today. 
This morning we moved out of the house that we have called home for 10 years. There were both happy & sad feelings.  
The movers did a fabulous job and were worth every penny. We would very much recommend Two Men & A Truck.  They were thorough in wrapping and securing our belongings and were professional and polite.  And strong. I mean, really, would you have wanted to haul the sleeper sofa upstairs or moved this fridge? They wound up having to take our front door off the hinges to get it inside. 
Drew supervised :-) 
I know the movers did all the heavy lifting, but Drew & I are exhausted! I'm guessing it's as much from the emotion of this week as the physical exertion. The new sectional we ordered hasn't arrived yet, so we just have our two recliners in the middle of the living room. It won't make the cover of any decorating magazines, but it's a lovely place to be right now. 
It's funny how quickly this went from being just a big, beautiful house to feeling like it is to be our home. 
We will go back to the old house in the morning to get a few last things from the garage and get the dogs. They are surely wondering what the heck is going on, but we felt they would be better off there today and not here with all the moving & cable guy commotion. 
It's been a great day and we are so grateful.
