The Texas house closed today. There were a couple of hiccups and at one point, it looked like it might not happen today but thanks to a great realtor, it’s all done. Vince should be less than two hours from here.
I thought I’d be more sad about the house being sold but I’m so happy to have it all behind us and have Vince almost here, that I’m not sad at all. I don’t know if it’s just me but sometimes, with something like the Texas house, garden and chickens, when I think about it, it’s almost like a story someone told me . . something that happened to them and not even something that happened to me. Is that weird? Don’t answer that! Between the lack of sleep last night and the closing/not closing/closing . . I’ve been on the verge of tears all day.
The movers . . those guys! They were supposed to spend today doing something else in Texas but now they’re saying they’ll be here at 10 in the morning. Only an upright freezer, a fridge, a chest of drawers and a recliner get delivered to the house. The rest goes to storage . . at least for now.
So . . we’re just an hour or so from Vince arriving, and we’ll begin to learn another new “normal”. I will sleep well tonight . . I will not be scared. Hopefully a smoke alarm will not beep. BUT, someone mentioned in comments that smoke alarms are supposed to be replaced every 10 years. I knew that for carbon monoxide detectors but it’s also true for smoke alarms. So, we need to find all of them . . there are at least 10, maybe 11 in this house, check the dates and replace them all. Something else to add to Vince’s list! 🙂
