House news.......

I realized that my last post on May 15th mentioned that our house had been on the market for one week. Well the day after that post, we received an offer and a contract.  With that in hand, we then made an offer and a contract on a new home.  The processes are now just winding their way painfully thru to the closing.  One would think that buying a new home would be a rainbows and unicorns type of process but it has been full of highs and lows to which I can only compare to my experiences with the adoption process--it's been awful and completely stressful.  I can honestly say that I don't want to do this again! 

Our days are now busy sorting and packing 15 years worth of stuff.  The main level of our house is full of boxes--some of which I've had to reopen to retrieve some  item that we've needed to use--this part of the process is definitely making me put a keen eye on everything I'm packing.  I'm trying to be less sentimental about objects but it's really hard to let go of some stuff.

While all this has been going on, life has not stopped.  The girls have finished out their school year and our extracurricular activities are winding down.  I think there is going to be a huge collision of events around the time we are supposed to close on the house but I'm trying to push that to the fartherest recesses of my mind.

In a week or so all the summer activities will start and I'm hoping it will be a welcome break from all of this house stress.  The pics below are of the girls last couple of weeks of school--picnics, band concert and kindergarten graduation.
