UGH, this move is quite the arduous task! I suppose when you are moving 5 people, two etsy shops, and a whole lotta crap, its an uphill battle. Oh, and I forgot the mass off stuff in storage...we also have stuff still stored in the last building we lived in. I wonder if its still there.
I'd like to also mention that because this was a foreclosure we bought it "As is" and technically any problems found on the property were our problems to correct. Luckily we bought from the bank who was also our lender and got a few perks. One of the biggest and best was a brand new heating system. That floored our Realtor who said banks NEVER do this kind of thing on a foreclosure...apparently ours did. They also scraped and repainted windows, fixed gutters, painted the garage, fixed any peeling paint in the house, replaced some plumbing fixtures...and all this came to a hefty price tag for the bank. For the price we actually paid for the home compared to the price of all the things the bank fixed I sorta feel like we ripped them off...but then I think about how interest works and realize how silly a thought that was!
But all in all, we got the Chicago Bungalow we've always wanted and when we add all these blessings together it's really reassuring to know the Big Guy is taking care of us.
