The Book Chick Is Moving!

After a month of ups and downs, a veritable roller coaster, the sold sign has gone up on our house! When we found out that we would have to move out of our rental by the end of March so that the owner's son could move in, we panicked. We were planning to buy a house in the next year or two, but we weren't ready yet! It is a big step, to become homeowners, but luckily there are people in our lives who were able to help us navigate the process.

We found and fell in love with this four bedroom, two bathroom home about seven minutes away from our current home. Our sons will still have to change schools, which will be a transition for them, but we will still be close enough to their friends to be able to see them on weekends. I'm steeling myself for the chaos that the next two months will be. We take possession of the house in less than a month now, and will have about two weeks to paint the main floor and get it into move-in ready condition. At the end of March all of our things will be officially moved in and the adventure of home ownership will begin! I'm exhausted already!

Not much will change here on the blog, except I will have even less time for reading than I do right now, meaning that there will be fewer posts. I will most likely not be accepting many review copies for the next two months, but I am hoping to be back in the swing of things starting in mid-April. Two months is a long time to be more-or-less away from the blogging world, given how quickly things change online, but I'm hoping that my blogging friends will come back to visit me when all of this is said and done!

    1. Thanks Cindy! I will feel so much better in two months when at least we'll be completely moved into the new place!

  3. I'm late catching up (and I don't even have the moving excuse). This should be a fun time for all of you, even tho it is exhausting. We moved 19 times in 26 years when my hubby was on active duty in the navy, and each move was such an adventure -getting to see new people, plant new gardens, find places to tuck all the knick-knacks. In spite of the negatives, there will be so many wonderful reasons to enjoy your OWN new home. I look forward to hearing how things go.
