Moving Fun!

It's amazing to me how fast the days fly by when you are in the midst of moving chaos! It seems like just yesterday when I found out we'd be relocating again. Here's how we've been spending our time lately.

I had my last Uppercase Living open house this past Thursday. I'm hoping that since we will be in a bigger city, I won't be driving an hour to two hours to do home shows. I'm now trying to get two shows closed before it really gets hectic.

Brad and I flew down to Memphis to go househunting this past weekend. We left the kids with two different sitters. Of course, we always joke that we have to move around every few years because it's the only time we get a weekend away! Ya know, most couples go to Bermuda or to an exotic destination. We, on the other hand, go to look for a house! Anyway, we successfully located a home and made an offer in one weekend. Seems like everything will go smoothly. Now, we are hoping that our own house will sell in a short amount of time.

When we got back from our trip, we had to schedule our new carpet to be put in the upstairs of our house. I felt that I was already moving. Furniture was taken apart and moved to different areas, bookshelves were cleared, etc. Then I had to spend the next day (yesterday) putting the entire upstairs back together. Today will be spent recleaning the entire house so that it will be "show worthy" and getting our house contract sent to the kids' new schools. Our moving date has been arranged, our flights have been booked and now the time is ticking. I hope that I have served God's purpose while being here for such a short time in Connecticut. I know that I've made several friends who I will hate to leave. But I'm really looking forward to going "home" to Tennessee!

Hey Vanessa! This is your cousin Hope. Mom was telling me about you all moving. I just found your blog a few days ago. Hope that things go smoothly for you as you are moving. We're in the process of have a house built in Nashville and will be moving in around the middle of November. Maybe I'll get to see you all again before too long.

Hope
