All Boxed Up and Nowhere to Go

We're boxing up our valuables (see above) and moving out of our house this weekend!

We have never really warmed up to our house in Flower Mound, and we're tired of living so far from work, friends and family. So we put our house on the market last fall, just to see what would happen. We got a contingency contract on it in October, and the buyers finally sold their house two weeks ago...but with a catch that they needed to close in 17 days. And oh by the way, I was in Mexico for four of those 17 days. In a moment of weakness, I agreed to such a timeframe and now it's BOX HELL at our house. And no, we don't have a new house to move into. So we're putting our stuff in storage and moving into my parents' upstairs temporarily while we look for the right house and the right neighborhood. Are we insane? Maybe. But we are very grateful to my parents for letting us crash there, allowing us the time to find a place that we love and will stay in for a long time.

We got a little emotional packing up Tate's room last night...the room we so carefully decorated and planned for over nine months. We will miss it, but otherwise it's 'adios' to this place. Onward...
