My oldest boy, Preston, is in the 8th grade. They allow 8th graders to participate in Holliday High School’s marching band. Because of a lot of work and practice, the band placed 6th in the 2021 Texas State Marching Band Championships (Class 3A). I am super proud of all of the band kids, but especially Preston! Great job!
We had lots of help moving most of the stuff from Wichita to Holliday yesterday. We now live in Holliday. There’s still a lot of clutter around the old house that we need to take care of, and then we can clean it up and be done with it. Fun times!
This buying-a-house business has gone surprisingly smooth so far <knock on wood!>. We are supposed to close today at 2:30pm! I am thrilled, excited, nervous, and whatever else you can think of. Donna, on the other hand, is sick. “Coming out both ends,” as she says. She said that we’re going to close today even if the notary has to follow her into the bathroom!
I’ve already begun making house in Holliday. I’ve had the utilities transferred to my name. We just have to let them know when we get there so they can turn the water on for us. We wouldn’t want a flooded laundry room after all! My plan is to purchase a refrigerator tonight or tomorrow, to be delivered in the next couple of days. We will work on cleaning in the new house and packing up the old house. I hope to get officially moved in by the end of next weekend… We’ll see how that goes!
And I just have to say that the folks at Jacksboro National Bank have been great to work with. They have answered all of my questions quickly, and it has been easy getting the documents to them. Thank God for email. I can’t imagine how bad it must have been providing documents before…
