Tennessee or Bust!

Well kiddos, looks like we are bound for Tennessee! They made an offer to my husband yesterday and he accepted it. He starts October 24th.

WHAT?! You can't leave me with these kids, they are CUH-RAZY!

Well now wait a minute, what kind of trouble can I cause while he is gone? Hmmmm,,,,

Painting?

Tearing something apart with no idea how to put it back together?

Break some more bones?

The possibilities are oh so endless! I guess I should start going through the mounds of crap and paring down a bit for the move this summer. I'm hoping on some of the weekend trips some stuff can get taken down. Then one BIG load this summer. I have records to get copies of, accounts to move, addresses to change, new schools to find....

Ugh....

I told my husband I was leaving the picking out of the house to him. I just want a dining room! Could you imagine all the dishes I could stockpile if I had a dining room. Goodness! I wonder if he could find a white farmhouse down there?

How I hate moving!

I do hope to move up the stairs this weekend to get my project done. I know I keep on saying that. This cast is turning into a real PITA. The other day I got a charlie horse in my foot and rolled around on the floor in pain til it stopped. I will do my best to get it done though for you sweethearts.

For now, I have To Do Lists to make!

Congratulations to all of you! Tennessee is beautiful and you would have a lot more days like we did these past couple weeks... lucky you!
i'm with Pinky though, I wouldn't send Duane alone to pick out the house! You are so trusting Maggie! O.k. girl we NEED to meet before you move! Have fun sorting!
Duane was blessed with a job yesterday too! NO move for us though, but a regular paycheck again is very welcome! So YAY to both of our families! t. xooxoxox

Lori said...

Just want to chime in on the total trust part in picking out the house ~ ahem ~ never would I be able to do that!! I would end up with a garage and a little teeny tiny house attached to it.

I'm excited for you, Maggie! What a fabulous city, and to get away from northern winters - fabulous! Say hello to Vince (Gill) for me...
Hugs, Beth

Tennessee is our neighbor here in Ketuck. Welcome to the south. It sounds exciting, though I don't envy the packing and moving. New follower of your cute blog!
