OUT OF THE APARTMENT...

It has finally happened. We found a house - hallelujah! It seems like this always happens to us, but we originally were gonna have a little more than a week to move from our apartment into our house. Now we have till Monday. The apartment complex found someone to rent our apt, but they need to start moving in Monday. SO, now we are going to be rushed and pushed to have everything out of the apartment. Especially since we are going out of town Sunday to Monday. That means we have tonight and tomorrow. Yippee...luckily I have been packing up things slowly over the past few weeks, but that still won't mean an easy move. As long as we can get everything out of the apartment, we can get our things out of storage next weekend. We had lots of family coming into town next weekend to help. But plans change. We'll make do.

I'm just thrilled to finally get a house and for the kids to have a backyard to play in. We've been house hunting for quite some time and really had our eyes set on Forest Hills. We love the neighborhood. A few weeks ago our real estate agent called and said that one had come available in Forest Hills (for the longest, there was nothing in Forest Hills - or at least in our price range). We loved it and decided to take it. The Lord was taking care of us. He has been all this time. And of all things, we can actually walk to the Forest Hills Pool. The kids are so excited (me too). We'll have plenty of time to get settled in before Macy gets here (we hope). We plan to paint the kids rooms first and over time paint other rooms. It's not as big as what we wanted, but will have plenty of room for now. Marah will be sharing a room with Macy- she is very excited about that and Joshua will have his own room pack. The 2 of them have been in bunk beds in the apartment. What memories we've had...the 4 of us in that 2-bedroom apartment. Ha Ha!

You can pray for our move to go well and in good time before Sunday. Oh and for me to NOT overdo it with lifting boxes and things. I tend to forget that I need to be really careful since there is another person growing inside of me. Sometimes it just seems easier for me to pick it up, than to wait for someone else to get it.

Anyways...I've got to get back to packing while the kids are napping (and grab a quick snack too). Have a good weekend!

you sound like me! i'd much rather do it myself than wait on anyone else. good luck with the move. i'm glad yall will get in your house before little bit gets here. we will put our house back on the market about a month after sister gets here. so hopefully that will go as quickly as yours...well, not in a weekend, but you know what i mean!

Yeah, I am so happy for you guys! When we moved last, I was pregnant with Jackson and I had the hardest time just standing around telling everyone else what to pick up and move. I would much rather be doing it myself. I hope that your move goes well and that you are able to settle in quickly.

Take it easy! When I was (I think 4 or 5 months) pregnant with Jordan and we were trying from our house to our apt, we were trying to get done one Sunday afternoon and Jon and I carried our COUCH from house to truck, then truck to apt! It wore me out! :)

Congrats on finding a new house! I'm sure getting settled in will help you guys have a much more enjoyable summer!

I'm so glad you found a house. I know you've been waiting patiently until one came your way! Yes, please don't forget you're carrying a little one and lift too much. Sometimes you'll do too much and find out the next day that you did! I'd love to see the house once you get all settled! :)

Julie said...
