Made it through the minefield...

March 25th, 2011 at 07:59 pm

The bank just called to say we are ready to go, cleared to close. We have successfully navigated the minefield of post housing-crash mortgage financing. It was a doozy.

It's like I can finally see clouds parting (and can see more work waiting on the other side, but at least the storm clouds are passing!). Our federal tax refund finally hit,a nd it was $200 more than expected.

Both of the kids have pink eye. Hooray. But only three more days of eye drops, obsessive hand washing, and praying that hubby and I don't catch it until we are free and clear.

I still have yet to hire movers, arrange to transfer all the utilities or pack even a single box. Ugh. So much work to do, and it doesn't look like it's going to end until mid-may. Oh well. Once it's done hubby and I will be sitting in our awesome new backyard sipping maitais. Or something!

In an effort to move less stuff, I've been trying to use up all the food we already have. Today, I made a bumbleberry pie out of the farm coop fruits I froze last summer, and oh my gosh does it taste great!!
