So we closed on our house last week. It is officially ours. Well, almost … Mr. and Mrs. Harris, previous owners, are in the process of moving out.
In the meantime, we have packed, picked out new carpeting, talked about paint colors for the living room and Briar’s bedroom, purchased new furniture, checked on different cable companies (our current one doesn’t provide service in the area in which our new home is located) and we’ve packed some more.
The only problem we’ve had so far happened while packing up things in the kitchen. It is decorated with mammies and Aunt Jemima memorabilia that I’ve collected for the past 14 years. I was cleaning the items to pack for the new house and soaked them in a cleaning solution that cleaned a little to well. It removed all the grime, but the paint came off, too. Luckily I was only doing a few pieces at a time, so most of my collection is still intact.
Moving is not an easy task, but we are really looking forward to making this house our home.
