The One Where We GET THE LOT!

The Semi-Homemades are nearly beside themselves with this land roller coaster... and debating on giving it up and running away to live at the beach permanently.  They get the call on Tuesday with the counter offer, and forward progress is made.

We accepted the counter!!  And now maybe I can start sleeping at night again! ;)  We broke the news to the kids over dinner (which was pancakes - we're trying to eat our way thru the pantry so we don't have to move lots of food, lol!)  And then.... because we were celebrating....


\\

we might have had a little ice cream.....


okay, maybe alot of ice cream... split between two messy kids....


and then once they went to bed, we might have (FINALLY!) gotten to break out the champagne Mr. Fix-It bought 2 wks ago!  (Check out those bags under my eyes - yikes!)


My mom and mom-in-law drove down today to join me for a Packing Party!  We're going to spend the next 2 days packing the rest of the house while the kids are at school.  Sat most our stuff goes to the summer house... and by next Friday, we'll be living there (and most our stuff will be in storage!)

Whew!  What a relief to have THE lot we wanted, at a great price, so we can get started building.  I'm not kidding when I say I've been losing sleep over it... and so has Big Sis, apparently.  She's always adjusted so well to any kind of change (moving, potty training, transitioning from crib to bed), so we figured she wouldn't skip a beat with this move.  WRONG.

After waking up in the night Sat, crying and panicking.... she refused to go to bed on Sun, after I had taken down and packed all wall hangings in her room.  This isn't my room - it isn't pretty, momma.... that's what she was crying.  Broke my heart to see her so upset.  I rehung 3 canvas paintings done by a friend and she went to sleep.

Mr. Fix-It and I have been worrying alot about her for a week or so... she's been out of character... So, today Mr. Fix-It asked me if I could arrange to be at the summer house for a short time on Friday, for a surprise.  Any guesses what he's up to?  :)

Stay tuned to check out the Semi-Homemade floor plan!

Yay! So glad you can relax (just a little bit!) about moving. It is such a big undertaking...especially with 2 kiddos. I admire you! Good luck packing and can't wait to hear all about the new house and the building process. HUGS to big sis too!
