Whew! Where have I been right?!
I hope everyone had an amazing Easter! During my last post, I told you guys about how we’ve had several inquiries on the townhouse already, and how I wasn’t ready to let people walk through.
Fast forward a week, and not only have I gotten that pesky hallway painted, BUT we also officially have tenants moving in June 1st! I knew these people were “the ones” the minute I met them.
It is an 82 year old former Marine wife, and her son who is a registered nurse and takes care of her. They were such lovely people, I could tell that they will take care of, and love my townhouse just as much as we’ve loved living there the past 5 years.
Everything with the house has been moving along quite quickly as well! We had our final electrical inspection yesterday, and the hand railings for our stairs should be being installed at some point in time this week.
Next week our carpet is being installed on Thursday and the furniture we purchased will be delivered on Friday!!!
But…………. I think the most amazing thing that happened this past week was this:
Now, by no means was this fancy AT ALL, just your basic ham and the traditional green bean casserole, but what DOES make it special is that we made it in our new home. Although we’re not living there, and I had to bring along utensils and things from the townhouse, we had our very first meal in our new home on Easter Sunday.
I even made a make shift “cookie sheet” out of layers of foil (since I forgot the bring a cookie sheet) so that we could have some chocolate chip cookies for dessert. 🙂
I can’t tell you how nice is was for the three of us to hold hands in our kitchen while Alfie said grace for the first time there. And it was perfect. We asked for blessings for our food, and a long life in our home filled with love and joy. (makes me teary eyed just typing this!)
I hope you guys forgive me for my sporadic posts for now! I promise to get back on a schedule soon. At least I manage to regularly practice pilates to relieve my lower back.
In the meantime…..
How was your Easter?! What’s your favorite part of the holidays—all the food or the gathering of friends and family or all of the above!?
