Yesterday was Possession Day & we received confirmation that our house was complete. We knew we wouldn't get the keys as the final inspection wasn't able to be scheduled until 4 p.m. Today, our apartment in the lower level will have a separate inspection by our County, then funds have to be delivered between lawyers & then we do our final walk through with our builder. Receiving our keys could happen later today & everyone behind the scenes is hoping to make that happen. But if it doesn't, if there is a delay, we know that "gotcha day" will be tomorrow for sure. I have to head into work for a bit this morning, then I'll be meeting our banker at lunchtime, then I have a bit of free time until I have to meet a family for counselling, then it's pick up daughter time, have some dinner then we're off to our theatre rehearsal ~ first show is in 2 short weeks! Today would be grand but tomorrow would probably be more realistic. Our moving company is set for tomorrow morning, so even if we got the keys today, we wouldn't be moving until the morning anyway. No complaints here at all.
Officially tonight is our last night sleeping in our current home. We've been here for 24 years & though we've been planning this venture for the last 14 when we bought our little piece of heaven, we knew when this day came, we'd have some tears for sure. Such a beautiful house, a lovely neighborhood, close to everything. But nothing can beat the chance to live in the country, in a quiet & scenic setting. A new adventure, but we are thankful for the memories we've created here. Sad & happy at the same time.
If you have moved, how did you
say goodbye to your other home?
Did the excitement of the new home
wipe away the sad of moving away?
