A Post

Simply titled, because I am exhausted and couldn't think of anything better. :)

My sweet friend Helen asked me to post something on my blog tonight, so here I am. Posting. Something.

Can you tell I've had a huge few days?! Hmmm. This morning we had a garage sale, and managed to do quite well. The last few items of furniture we didn't sell are now listed on ebay, and all the bric-a-brac and clothes are at the Salvos, meeting up with the other 15 or so bags of stuff I have donated lately! Garage Sales are exhausting at the best of times, but doing one in the midst of packing (9 sleeps to go, aagggghhhh...!) is even worse. And Mr William decided not to settle last night while Stu was out, and I was simply unable to get him down until after 10:30pm. Which meant that I couldn't do the work I'd planned, then relax, then get to sleep myself until after 12am. :( Will seems to have a slight cold today, so perhaps that was what threw him out of routine? Who knows. He also prefers Stu putting him to bed - I have just told Stu tonight that he is never allowed out at night again!!!

Anyway, it has been a very very productive, very very looooong day. Furniture sold, boxes packed, children tended to, meals eaten.

9 more sleeps until we're here.

I swear (figuratively...) that I'm not going to believe it until we're actually there.

So surreal. And SO exciting! :) Thank you Lord!!!!

Praise the Lord that your sale went well! Hoping you get a little rest today and the William's cold gets better...I will pray!

Your new place is lovely! The yard...OH MY! Just gorgeous! :)

Your new home looks lovely Saminda, the white kitchen and bathrooms and neutral decor will mean you can accessorize to your heart's content and everything will go! My first home had an orange kitchen straight out of the 70s!
The gardens are fabulous - the gazebo will be a shady spot for outdoor entertaining - I assume it is a permanent fixture and staying! You are going to enjoy moving in, in time for Christmas too! So exciting - enjoy every moment - all your moving preparations now will be worth it! I am so happy for you.

Ah HERE looks like an OASIS. Hope the rest of the packing goes quickly and the move runs smoothly.

Blessings to you in this transition.

Such a busy time! Hang in there, it sure looks like it will be worth the effort.

Yeah for only 9 more sleeps, a garage sale behind you (you go girl) and all the other odds and ends you've been pecking at.

I left you a note on the comment secion of todays post....

Your new home is beautiful...praying for super-human-heaven-sent strength!

I love the black and white shot of your kids...a classic beauty to it.

bless you sweet sister!

Saminda what a beautiful home! So pleased your sale went well & you are getting everything sorted! 9 sleeps - wow that will go quick. Thinking of you over this busy time! Do both houses settle at the same time?

Saminda said...

Thanks so much Kimmie - yes, I'll need that super-human-heaven-sent-strength!!!

Renata, yes both houses settle at the same time- which is good but a bit stressful too! :) I'd appreciate your prayers for a smooth settlement. I know God is WAY bigger than paperwork, and I trust that He will help everything get sorted in time. :)
