I decided to write out the plan for the next few days because I know that I'm about to be waaaaaaay too busy to blog! So, if you've been following along with the story of our big move, then here's what's going to happen next!
We have several meetings tomorrow out at the house with various people to discuss closings, inspections, final walk-throughs, finishing our basement and plans for the pool. On Saturday afternoon, I take Zack to the airport so that he can fly back to Kansas. He will be there through Monday while the movers load the truck, and then he will drive the one car that we left in Kansas back here on Tuesday. I get to try and entertain the Gang in the hotel until he returns.....thinking about checking out a cool children's museum on Sunday.
Wednesday is the big day......we finally get to close on our house! And although we won't be able to stay there at night until we get our furniture, just having the room to roam during the day will be a big relief. We close at noon and then it gets crazy! We have the carpet guy coming to tear out the old carpet at 2pm. We also have a locksmith coming to change the locks. We are hoping to get AT&T in there that day to set up our internet so that we can do school there during the day immediately. In addition, we have the contractor starting on finishing our basement that same day!!
On Thursday, the new carpet will be installed and then we have someone coming to give the house a deep-clean before the moving truck arrives with all our stuff! I am hoping to be able to spend the day at the house, doing homeschool & then planning out where I want all my furniture, but some of that will depend on whether or not we have internet.
We are expecting the movers to arrive and begin to unload on Friday, but that's still up in the air at this point.....it may not be until Saturday. As long as we have a place to spread out and spend the day, I really don't mind sleeping in the hotel for a few more nights (we have 6 full weeks of free temporary housing!).
From there, it will be boxes, boxes and more boxes! If you've ever moved out-of-state, I'm sure you can understand! If not, I'll be sure to post pictures ;D I'm looking forward to rearranging some of my furniture, and we did have to buy a few new pieces to help us fit in the new house, so I have new furniture to look forward to! The tough part will be disciplining myself to get school done for the day so that I can attack the unpacking and decorating!!
