We’ve had the new house for just about two months now. It’s amazing how quickly I’ve gotten used to living here! It definitely feels like home now. I think the kids have gotten used to it now too; they sure have been making messes! So I guess things are starting to get back to normal. We’ve had Russell in at the doctor a couple of times. Once to the urologist in Fort Worth, and once to the speech therapist. We go back to the urologist tomorrow. Boy, kids are expensive! We’re just now getting started paying on the medical bills from Todd Daniel’s birth, and now we’re going to start getting some more for Russell!
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…
