It’s been a bit of a whirlwind of a weekend. In case you don’t know the news (and how could you not? I mean I can scream kinda loud when the mood strikes). If you missed it then just go here to THE NEWS POST and see what I’m talking about. Go ahead. You really will be lost if you don’t.
So, that means a lot has to happen and has happened around here. Saturday we rented out our house here to a British family for our landlord before we even told her we were moving. She was so grateful (the family signed the lease hours after stopping by) she let us give two months notice instead of the required three. Thereby saving us double rent for the month of August. I love when things just work out so nicely.
Our moving coordinator is the same person who helped us during our moving here. Awesome. She’s very nice and has it together and knows everyone so this process will be quick, easy and relatively painless. Hopefully end of this week or next the moving company will be coming by to check out what they will be moving. Packing and removal dates are July 1 & 2. Even better.
Despite my claims in my news post, I’m again vetoing the minivan. After careful study and actually looking at one, I couldn’t force myself to accept that life. I believe a more accurate description would be something along the lines of clinging to the door handle of a station wagon in absolute fear of crossing to the dark side. I can manage the station wagon persona, I used to drive one when we first moved here and I am still alive.
We have several leads on some very nice houses to rent in the Philly burbs. MIL (who left today) is going to go and check them out for our double peace of mind. The agent we are working with is extremely helpful which has been a definite plus.
I’ve had questions as to why the kids and I moving and Hubby is not. That is complicated. But the brief details are that it is in the kids best interests to leave now rather than waiting five months. Since he can’t leave his job until his contract is fulfilled it’s going to be difficult yes but not the first time we’ve done something like this. Though this is certainly the longest amount of time. In the end it’s what’s best for the kids so that’s what we are doing.
I’ve had questions about my mom. She’s doing good. She starts week three I believe of radiation treatments this week finishing in the second week of July. So far she is tolerating everything very well and life is pretty much normal. Thank you all for asking.
It is Monday and so I will give avery short update for HASAY. Basically I walked a ton this week doing sightseeing stuff. Healthy food intake: Im simply taking the fifth on that one 🙂
Today is a holiday here so I’m off to do laundry and all sorts of other fun holidayish things. Have a great Monday.
