House Stuff

Things are moving along nicely with selling the house. Inspection went well, option period is up in 2 more days... But I guess I should tell you my lovely readers where we're going and why!

*Had I known we'd be taking a picture that day, I might have put on makeup. {grin}*

We're moving to another ATX suburb about 15 miles from where we are now, but we're building our dream home! We call it the 'at least until the kids are out of high school' house. We like the community better and it's closer to the kids new school. And we're 6 minutes from my sister. #winning

But as you can tell from the picture...there's no house there yet! We have a floor plan and site layout and are beginning to make selections for the interior/exterior of the house. So far it's been smooth sailing. We'll see if that continues to last!

Most likely we are moving into an apartment for 7 months. We're going to make the final decision after the option period is up. On one hand that sounds terrible {having neighbors above you and on all sides and no yard to play in etc} but on the other hand it sounds wonderful {no yard WORK, something breaks and someone else fixes it and less space to keep clean and a pool and fitness center in the complex}.

So that's the latest with the house stuff. I can't wait to share more details as we make some actual progress. And if anyone wants to help us move... TWICE... We'll gladly buy you some beer!
