It's official, people! My closing date for the house is April 18th. That day is also my niece Madison's 5th birthday. I had a conversation with her the other day that went something like this:
"Madi, I'm getting my house on your birthday!"
"Can you still come to my party?" she asked with a worried frown.
"Of course! But I might not get to bring you a gift because I'm spending all my money to buy the house," I teased her.
"Well, then don't buy it Aunt MeeMee!"
Don't worry; I assured her that I was just teasing about not having a gift for her. A 5th birthday is a big deal, you know. The first of the big, round number days.
So, I'm getting really excited. I guess this means that I should pack some more. Actually go through all my clothes and get rid of things, too. I ordered new checks today with the new address (this was a major necessity since I ran out of checks in December!). I also have a house inspection to read, home owner's insurance to decide about, and paint to pick. I have these two throw pillows that have every color in them that I would like to use in my house. Think I can take them to Lowe's and get all my paint mixed? I think I might need MAJOR guidance in this department...
Whew! Hopefully in a month I'll be all settled! Wishful thinking maybe? *smiles*
