I'm back!

I'm soooo happy to finally internet again!

We did get moved into our new house! We closed last Friday at 8:30am on both houses. The closing took about 45 minutes, and we got back to our (old) house about 10 minutes before the movers showed up! DH's dad and stepmom had come down to help us as well (they live about 4 hours away). We somehow managed to get the move done in the 24 hour time limit we had, turned possession of our old house over to the new owners, and made it our friends' son's first birthday party! We had the invisible fence installed for the dogs, painting has started, and the contractor is starting renovations on Tuesday. It has been CRAZY, and will continue to be so, but I'm so happy to be settled in one house (even though almost everything is still in boxes until some of the renovations are done). The sale of both houses was so ridiculously down to the last minute as to whether or not they would happen, and that was just so stinking stressful! I don't mind the craziness of the renovations- I'm just so happy to know where we're going to live!

I have missed chatting with all you ladies! I'm off now to read all the threads and get caught up :-).

Invisible fence... is that like a shock collar type thing or something different?

Thanks everyone! I missed you all Smile

Emily- I will post pics soon. There will be plenty of before and after pictures as we get things done around here! Most of it is pretty scary right now ;-). But this is an amazing neighborhood and school district, so buying the fixer upper is definitely worth it!

Kristina- yes, the invisible fence is the one with the shock collar. It's been awesome so far, which is a relief, since one of our dogs had figured out how to dig under the fence at our old house we definitely needed a new solution!
