15 Days Until Home Ownership
My days seem to be flying by as we approach our closing date (15 days!). Thankfully, everything is going smoothly. The appraisal should be completed this week and then I think that is everything we need to finalize the loan and move forward. I have arranged for movers to help us move all of the furniture and special medical equipment movers to move their Sleep Safe beds to the new house. I am meeting the carpet guy at the house tomorrow morning to select new carpets for the bedrooms. And I am meeting with 2 recommended painters to get an estimate for painting the interior. I am also meeting with a contractor tomorrow (my cousin) about making some changes to the kitchen. In other positive news, the sellers agreed to split the cost of the drainage issue in the backyard. Matt and I are so thankful for reasonable sellers, who realized that this was a big issue that needs to be taken care of.
Tomorrow I am going to tour the school that Waverly & Oliver should attend when we move to our new house. (We are in the same district, but the schools are different out there.) I am trying to keep an open mind. The school has a very good reputation, but I worry about the change. I am really looking forward to seeing the classroom and meeting the staff though. I tend to follow my gut, so I hope it speaks to me loud and clear. We have been offered the option of staying at their current school, but I would most likely have to drive them to/from school each day. It doesn't sound too bad at first, but after a few weeks I think it would become quite tedious. We *love* their school though and leaving it would be so difficult for all of us.
