SOLD!!

The house funded yesterday. For those of you who have never sold a house before it's the call you nervously wait for and try desperately not to think about. But it's finally done. We should be getting a check in a few days. Plus, we no longer have that connection to California.

This has been a massive blessing for us. We have been carrying that mortgage on our backs for a long time. This means we can finally go forward with the next phase of the remodel on our house (I love saying our house and not having to append a modifier). We are thankful and have expressed such in our prayers. And thank you to all of you who wished us well and included us in yours! The power of prayer knows no limits. I hope MonkeyWrangler had the same success.

Of course now I have no more excuses on why I haven't started the latest home project. What's up next? It's currently a toss up between the kitchen and master bedroom/second bathroom. I've been leaning toward the kitchen but we really, really need that second bathroom. We'll see. I anticipate making the decision and starting demo next month. Ah, blog fodder.

And did I mention there will be two new guns in the Six household very shortly? Stay tuned, I'll have a write up just as soon as they're bought.

Ah, I feel so much lighter today.

Congrats!

We are in the process of moving. So far, it has not gone smoothly. There is so much trauma and drama to this sale.

Congrats! You and Lu need to treat yourselves to a nice relaxing week-end somewhere nice to celebrate.. With Angus, of course.

Then post on the guns. Can't wait.

Congrats Six! Ours too is almost done. It was a little rocky a process but not horrible I guess. Just waiting now on the bank receiving the transfer of funds.

Glad you sale went through and you are DONE! YAY!

And may your remodel go smoothly too.
