4 years, 1 month.
With our closing date just 3 and a half weeks away (January 29th), when we go to visit the progress on our house now, it’s not so much “oh look what they put in!” as much as it is “what else do they need to do before our closing date?”
At this rate, we’re mainly just lacking carpet, sod for the yard, and the fence!
So now our new home has the dark brown hardwood floors we chose (currently covered with cardboard for protection), shelves in the closets, the toilets, the microwave (which we’ll never use but we know would help the resale value should we ever move, though we never plan to), the dishwasher, and the oven.
As for the washer and dryer, those are our responsibilities, but as I recently mentioned, Mommy and I bought those during Christmas break.
And as a family, we bought our refrigerator at Lowe’s, using the 10% off coupon we received when we moved out of our town home.
(I’m still not ready to write to you about that because we’re still unclear how much money we made off the deal… I feel that story is yet unsettled.)
You talked Mommy and me into buying you a plastic candy cane on clearance for 50 cents, there at Lowe’s.
After we left Lowe’s, you had way too much fun with that thing when we stopped at Whole Foods to buy groceries.
You created a wagon by attaching the candy cane to a grocery basket. While Mommy did the shopping, I ushered you to emptier aisles so that you wouldn’t run into anyone.
For the record, the “emptier aisles” at Whole Foods were the soda/beverage one and the one with dog food.
I admit, there’s a certain amount of stress and anxiety in Mommy and me having to orchestrate the move and all the details that must come together the weekend of January 29th.
Like, for example, I’m in the midst of asking around who I should get Internet through, in Spring Hill.
We used AT&T at our townhome in Nashville and we had no problems at all, but I do wonder if we could save some money there?
What we’re used to paying is $50 a month for just Internet, since we only watch Netflix on our TV.
While the big day approaching will be exciting for our family, I’ll be glad once we get all these loose ends tied and I can know for sure we actually get to move in the weekend of January 29th; and our appliances are installed and working along with the Internet.
