I have had the hardest time keeping this quiet til it was ok to post it here. I’ll bet you all wondered why I haven’t been blogging much! Well, it’s because my days and nights are pretty much consumed with this upcoming move and I couldn’t say anything so I figured I’d just keep quiet.
We’re moving to Missouri. That helps explain why two fairly normal people would go there when there’s a snow storm predicted! We had a trip planned in early November and had things happen that caused us not to get to go and if we had not gone the weekend of the snow storm, there was probably no chance of us finding a house in time for our move. So, we tromped through the snow and ice and it was so worth it as we found the perfect house! I’m not going to share a whole bunch of pictures because it’s all the other people’s stuff in the house in these pictures but I think if you see the dining room and breakfast room, you’ll know why I fell in love with this house. I love lime green!! Not all the rooms are lime green though . . darn it! 🙂
And, it has a full basement so there’s plenty of room for the longarm.
The plan is that the movers will come on December 20 and 21 and do the packing, then they’ll come back on December 26 and 27 and do the loading and they’ll leave here with our “stuff” on December 28 and it will all be set up at the new location on January 3. I’m guessing Christmas dinner at our house will consist of ham sandwiches on paper plates since everything will be packed.
Now that the cat is out of the bag, my blog will probably be taken over by moving posts. Sometime around mid to late January, I hope to see my fabric and sewing machine again.
We’re really happy about the move and although moving at Christmas sounds like a hassle (moving ANYTIME is a hassle), the timing is perfect. Chad can start a new semester in January at the new location, taxes will work out great since everything ends in KY at the end of the year and starts in MO at the beginning of the year.
We’re going to a really small town and I’m happy about that too. Believe it or not, there’s a quilt/yarn shop there! I didn’t get to go by and visit while we were there but at least there’s one there. We’ll be 60 miles from Joplin and about 90 miles from Kansas City so any time I get the desire for city shopping, I can be in one of those places in just an hour or so.
My requests were:
- No interstate highway nearby. Check
- A nice basement. Check
- A great kitchen. Check
I didn’t even ask for lime green walls and I got that so . . what more could a girl ask for?
