We are back from Buns and Roses, which was a lovely event, and now we have to write like the wind, because… drum roll, please… we received our clear to close letter. While that doesn’t mean the house is ours, it does mean that we’ve received the final approval for our loan. This means that in addition to working on Kate 10, we will have to do a number of things.
We’ll have to talk to some flooring places to see how much money a new floor would cost us and figure out if we’ll need to take out a loan to swing it. We’ll need to select the floor, which is harder than it sounds.
We’ll have to walk the house with insurance inspector to get the house insurance out of the way.
We’ll have to measure everything and likely purchase a new dining table. Ours is kind of on its last legs and it really doesn’t fit with the house.
We’ll have to buy two more desks for the detached office, a new office PC for Gordon, and a small sofa for the hang out room.
We’ll have to start packing and sorting. Oy.
We’ll have to rent Pods.
We’ll have to find a company to take apart our home gym and box it and then put it back together at the new place.
Our youngest daughter and her boyfriend are moving down with us to stay in the detached apartment that comes with a house, and he will be looking for a job in San Marcos, hopefully something that’s not a night shift, like his previous job was. He worked in a home for the elderly blind. They are planning to get down there before us, which means we need to measure the apartment to get them a couple of furniture pieces, dishes, towels, etc.
I’m not freaking out about it, because we will take it one item at the time, but when I write it all out, it does seem like a lot on top of regular writing.
I’m going to buy myself some mozarella today as motivation. I’ve been craving Caprese Salad something fierce. According to internets, I need calcium, Vitamin D, or sugar. I don’t really care, since what I need most is getting through the day without self-destructing. 🙂
