I figured it out!! (I think)

It's been soooo hard to even imagine what life is going to be like in our new home.  I don't know if it's because all we've been through or if it just seems way to good to be true.  Perhaps a bit of both.  Maybe I'm in denial that is really happening for us.  Or maybe my energies have been spent too much on packing and trying to keep my girls lives as normal as possible before the move to really put much thought into it.

I have been thinking about this a lot lately.  And wondering why I literally cannot imagine life in this house.  And honestly, I think it's a few things.   Yes, I think most of it falls on all the aforementioned things.  But I think a little part of it is something else.

Ok, now this is going to sound completely crazy, so don't say I didn't warn you!!  But....

I think another part (a smaller part, but a part none the less) is because I HAVE been to the house so much.  And I have yet to see it in "live-in" condition.  LOL  (all a part of the process, I know)      Something is always getting worked on, or fixed.  The hall, even after they took the protective covering off, still need cleaned.  It's hard to imagine living somewhere that isn't clean.  lol

See... I told you it sound completely crazy!!!  lol

I know they are working hard to finish up odds and ends.  And I also know that everything WILL BE cleaned by closing.  But not seeing it that way yet has had impact on me.  I know.  I'm weird.  lol

I'm trying to stay away until Wednesday.  That's our pre-settlement walk-through.  I'd LOVE to be surprised!!  However, I am wanting to take my MIL (an ordained minister) over the house so we can pray over it.  Not sure that one is going to wait until Wednesday.  It may have to be this weekend or one day next week after she gets off work.  We won't move in until we've all prayed over the house.

So that's it.  I'm officially stating how whacky I am on the world wide web.  lol  *sigh*


  1. I can honestly say I agree with your self assessment of your state of mind...just plain wacky :)

    Since you think I have all the answers, the only thing I can recommend is take 2 glasses of wine and call me in the morning!!!

  2. LOL, wacky? You said it first. I do understand wanting to be surprised. So good luck on waiting until next Wednesday before going back in.

    I must say I haven't been by all week. Mostly because it has been so hot, I didn't feel like going in the sauna. :-) Can't wait to have the AC running. Now I'm waiting for them to finish installing the hardwood floors and carpet. So hopefully I will get by early next week.

    How is the packing going?

  3. Our poor little Noey! :( I can't imagine settlement being in only 6 days. Try to occupy yourself with all of the mundane tasks you must complete before moving and I'm sure that will help time fly by. ;)

    Your not crazy, I think it is just anxiety! I had the same feelings right before I sent over what i thought was my last change order. :) You saw the post! lol...just breathe honey and pray. I think thats great your going to have the house blessed, we plan to have ours blessed by my dad (chaplain) or my MIL (Elder).
