Nothing really exciting...

It's been a while since I've had anything to post - or rather, anything that I thought was worth a post all by itself. Let's see...  What's been happening lately...  [thoughtful tapping of chin]

Well, we've had an offer accepted on our Texas house, which is great, because the housing market is not exactly seller-friendly right now. The view out our windows over the golf course and Lake Lewisville are selling the place for us. There's still many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip, as Grandma Lyden used to say, so we're not considering the house actually sold until money changes hands at the end of the month and we pull out of the driveway with all our worldly possessions.

We have a firm move-out date of June 30. The moving transport company should be here on the 27th, I think, and they'll take away most of what we own. We're towing a few things with us that we'll need to set up house before the moving truck arrives in Nikiski sometime late in July (we hope).

For those wondering, the Metropolitan will go with the transport company, but Tate and the budgies will all be riding along with us. Tate loves Jim's new Ridgeline and I keep trying to talk Jim into letting her ride with him, rather than with James and me in the CR-V. Heh heh heh. Tate is not the world's best traveler, even on short jaunts around town, and when she goes to the vet this week for her check-up and paperwork to cross the Canadian border, I'll be begging for doggie tranquilizers.  For Tate.  Yeah, for Tate.  Uh huh.

That's about it. I'm packing a lot, as are the guys. We sure do have a lot of stuff that it turns out we don't really need. The thrift store loooooooves me. I feel like I'm single-handedly stocking their shelves now. I hope I've learned a lesson!  LOL

There are some more pictures that I can post later, but I haven't had time to go back and sort and select yet. Check back in a few days and maybe I'll have them up by then!

    It is a very nice house with very nice views at a VERY buyer friendly price.

  3. The budgies are going to Alaska? Will you be sending them on ahead like carrier pigeons or?
    Happy Packing! Thanks for the update!
