movin' on up!

No, I'm not pregnant!  A friend called me to ask after she read my last post, which is the first I realized you could assume that given the wording, and how the surprise of B popped up.  So no new littles on the horizon at this time, but I did think it very funny.  We've been so busy because we're in the process of packing up our house to move (up to the front of the neighborhood)!  It started with a random thought of how nice it would be to have modified living space for Rhys.  That turned into a casual perusal of home builders and potential locations to build.  Fast forward two months later and here we are.  This was a very sudden decision on our part, but once we decided we jumped right in.

In the last two months we've finished last minute projects around the house (that had been sitting on the back burner for months and months, but that's what you get when a new baby arrives unexpectedly in the middle of a kitchen remodel), moved our extra clutter to a storage unit, decided on a new home/location to build, listed our current house for sale, accepted an offer a week later (impressive in our market!!), did required inspections/appraisals/home repairs, and started packing.  Which brings us to today.  We are currently looking for a temporary rental while our new house is being built.  Oh, and did I mention we are closing on this house next Friday?  Yes, you read that right.  We're one week from being homeless and we have no place (yet) to go!  It's in the works, and I know it will work out however it is supposed to.  We knew we would take temporary housing while waiting on our new house, but it still stinks to move seven years worth of living for five people.  Totally worth it in the end though.  We are incredibly excited about our new house.  As Rhys gets older and bigger it gets harder and harder for us to work with our current layout.  He needs a modified bathroom and doorways, and we need a continuous flooring of some sort for his eventual wheelchair use full time.  So we are taking advantage of the super low interest rates to get a "custom" house that will fit our needs.  Yea!
