We're in Georgia!

We got to Georgia today. We're staying in a hotel tonight but will be staying in the new house tomorrow night. It will be empty, so we'll be on the floor, but we'll be staying in the new house! The furniture gets delivered Tuesday. We'll be without internet until Wednesday, so I'll post pictures of the house then.

We spent this afternoon cleaning the house, it is filthy! I don't think they've cleaned at all in the 5 years they've lived there. I spent 3 hours just cleaning baseboards and only got half way done. They were all brown, turns out the paint is white! All the walls need repainting and everything else needs scrubbing. We'll be cleaning all day tomorrow to get ready for the movers Tuesday. Once the house is clean it will be beautiful, it is really nicely done, just dirty.

We're here!!!! This may actually be happening....

Oh Christy! I'm so absolutely thrilled for you! Even sleeping on the floor can be fun when it's for all the right reasons! :)

I sure wish I could be there to help you move in and clean up the place.
I can't wait to hear more about your move into your new home.....FARM!!! :)

I knew it would happen. Just took longer than expected. I am so happy for you. Wish Hubby and I could be there now to help with the cleaning ( I excel at cleaning). Oh well, we are bringing our painting clothes when we come and plan on doing as much as possible. See you soon. Call me when you get your phone service so I can have your new phone number.

Sweeeeet. Nothing like cleaning up somebody elses mess. Hey..at least you are finally there and get to start on your master plan for world domination.

I have the hose, you get the rubber chicken.

I'm doing a happy dance ... no really! I'm just a really accurate typist ... :).

Awesome! Fantastic! Hip, hip Hooray!

Now, get back to work cleaning your new house ... and hurry up and get those goats so that you can give me some arguing points I can use with my husband to convince him we need goats, too ;).

CeeCee said...

Hooray!! I'm glad you all got there in one piece.

Don't forget to bend your knees when cleaning. Sometimes I just sit on the floor to do lower work--saves my back.

Take lots of pictures!!

How wonderful to be in your new home...even if it is empty right now. Makes it easier to clean. You must show pictures soon.
Congratulations on your new home!

Maile - if you want a good time, you gotta clean other people's pee off the floor! It is the best.

Thanks for all the good wishes everyone. More comment in a few days when we have internet.
