Clutter seems to be the norm around here these days. Everything is in place for our house to close on Oct. 20th, so I have been busy packing, sorting, throwing things away. I am having a garage sale this weekend to get rid of what I know we no longer will want/need in the new house, plus all the stuff Capri has outgrown. I have a pile of garage sale stuff, a pile of stuff to go into storage for the new house, and a pile of stuff that will be moved into the rental. We got a stoarage shed last night and started putting stuff in it. We get the rental on October 1st. But for now my lack of garage means, that all those piles are in corners of my house. Between all the packing, and pricing, taking the kids to the varies activies, cleaning as best as I can, keeping up with laundry, and just normal day to day stuff, I am TIRED!!!!! I love it, I really do, but at the same time I just want to relax in the evenings. But with a very active toddler, at night when she is in bed is the best time for me to get stuff done.

I am ready for the next few weeks to be over!!!

New house

We signed the contract on our new "to be built" home. They should break ground on it sometime in late October or early November. It should be completed sometime in March. I am SUPER excited. It's 2023 sq ft, and has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2 car garage. To the left of the house is a grassy area that will remain open, and behind us is about 2 acres of pine and grass that is preserve so it won't be built on, and is public land so the girls can play on it. Here are the house plans, and the lot pictures.

This is what we will see from our backyard. The grassy area will remain unbuilt.
