Our first visitors at our new home would be Heather’s friend Dasia and family. They came for fireworks.
We all nestled in on the Love Sack and enjoyed the view from there.
Our new home is on the Northend of Lake Washington and that night we had a spectacular view.
We were just days into our new home (unpacked boxes everywhere) or we would have invited all the folks who helped us move. Colin and I counted: it took 20 people and 170 people hours to move us. We want to continually thank them. Every time I see them I say THANK YOU!!!
“WOW,” you might be saying, “That sounds like a lot! What was the problem?”
Cats were the problem. See, I am allergic to cats, and the person before us had three. It is a short sale property with a wonderful view, so we decided to take the risk and take on the cats, but little did we know we were going to be in over our heads by day two of the move. All walls required 2 coats of Kilzs paint not just one, and let’s just say the painting went slow. We also had a Fire Alarm that went off for nearly 2 hours one evening that felt like torture.
But we are in and waiting. In Short Sale we wait for the original bank to clear the offer. They say it can take months, meanwhile we rent from the owner. Step one was to clear the cats…Done. We did it with a HEPA Filter and then an anti-allergy liquid for all counters and hard surfaces, and Kilzs paint for the walls.
This move has been one of the most stressful events of our past couple of years. And I have to admit waiting will have its stress too. But it was our choice to go risky…and we will see.
Thank you, Monica, Tanya, Jazzy, Jessica, Rachael, Toni, Tom, Anna, Micah, Brooke, Lahlae, M.L., Leslie, Nahun, Margo, Eugelico, Juan, and Dave! Without you we would have been lost.
Nothing left to do but enjoy the view and invite more visitors.
