putting off the inevitable

So as I mentioned previously (like a week ago??? because I've been a bad blogger) we sold our house. It happened early last week. The realtor showed our house for the second time to the same people and they spent an entire hour looking around (meanwhile I assumed they would be done shortly and drove around hour neighborhood for an hour - it was funny when Jimmy showed up and we'd pass each other and wave only to pass each other again on the next street) our lovely home. I was aggravated but hope it was a good sign! Sure enough, we had an offer the next day!

After getting the offer we knew we had to bust our tail to find a new home! We had several in mind but nothing that I was in love with. We found a few homes in a neighborhood we'd never heard of and decided to check it out. It's a small community but two seconds from the big neighborhood that I'd been wanting to live in. I immediately loved the house! I knew from the beginning that it would be great for our family. There were a few "well, there is this" but after more consideration we knew it was the one!!! It's plenty big but not too big, it's new but not brand new, it's a one story but not a crammed one story - it's perfect!!

The closing date is set for March 23rd. Which, if you're counting on your fingers is precisely 24 days from today! Yikes!!! Which brings me to what I am doing now rather than what I am suppose to be doing...packing!

This is not fun. Those of you who think moving sounds like so much fun (I thought this too until an hour ago) have lost your minds. The idea of packing in general is not to bad, but then once you start doing it - well, it's a little harder than it looks. I'm an obsessive organizer. This means my boxes must be organized and labeled. Right now I have 3 open boxes on the floor with a few things in each. This is going to be interesting!

If packing alone wasn't dreadful enough, throw a 2-year old in the mix! At the present moment JD

This might sound like a no-no, but it's better than what he was doing a few minutes ago - taking all the shredded paper out of my paper shredder!! Ahh...help me please!

I do have something to look forward to (and I'm not referring to the pretty house we are moving into in 24 days) - rodeo!! Jimmy and I will be leaving shortly for some bull ridin', turkey leg eatin', cowboy lookin' heck of a good time! Yee Haw! I love me some George Strait!

Then I'll come back home to this and start all over again tomorrow. Note to self: spend your 5-1/2 hours while JD is in MDO to get stuff done! Enough of this business....

Yay! I'm so glad everything has worked out. I can't wait to hear about the new house.

I love the live action shots! I laughed out loud when I saw them.
