Getting Closer...and Excited

So, sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning I am supposed to receive the key code to get into my new home. That's just 4 days away! Then the movers come and carry my stuff away just 4 days later from then. It's getting closer...much closer! 

Tonight I packed away my dishes and cookware. I gently cradled each plate, bowl and saucer in bubble wrap to protect them. You see, they are now irreplaceable as a discontinued pattern. I love them and I don't want anything to happen to them.

I feel so silly giving a play by play, step by step in the process of this move, but I really don't have anything else to talk about right now! I'm so thankful that I'm even in this reality in the first place. It is a dream come true! A home I can call my own!

I already have things mapped out for next week. Monday after work, stop by Lowe's, pick up landscaping timbers, then line the bottom of the fence with them so Boots can't escape (they were microchipped two weeks ago just in case). Tuesday will be spent cleaning the carpets. Wednesday meeting the furniture store guys as they drop off my brand new dining room set and television stand (I know this blog is about simplifying, but I really don't have anything to eat on and I don't have anything to put the television on top). 

It's all turning into a whirlwind! I can't believe it is happening! This is my reality right now! The for sale sign has been removed from the premises! The listing page is gone! I hold the mortgage papers! It is mine! All mine!
