Randoms…Moving Edition

Happy Friday!

I’ve been MIA for good reason. We finally closed on our new house, packed up our old house, moved and closed on our old house. So much testimony service in those processes that I will be back to tell the stories in depth. However, for now that’s all I have for you.


Out of the gate we have some major superficial issues with the house. The house got a gleaming rating during its inspection, so I’m keeping my sanity holding on to that. The issues we are facing are interior… I know.

The day we moved in the carpet was awful. I had no idea because they had a lot of furniture in the bedrooms. I was very adamant that I wasn’t putting any furniture down on the floor so we called a same day floor cleaner and he came out to steam clean the rugs. After the cleaner left we realized it was really hot in here. After some tinkering with the fancy thermostat we are finally at the conclusion that the air conditioner is broken. I’m thinking its the thermostat unit, or maybe we don’t know how to change their program settings. The seller is coming by this weekend to help us out.

Take a wild guess about what happens when you have floors cleaned and it’s hot. Correct!! It now smells like mildew in here mixed in with pet smells that the cleaning must’ve bought up. I just.

So with money that God will bless us with, hopefully out of the sky we will have to go on a limb and finance new carpet when he had planned to wait until the end of the year to get it done. Oh and we came to the realization of the new carpet situation after purchasing a new refrigerator, dryer and living room furniture. So yeah.

This morning I woke up with a headache, and the realization that God will never give us more than we can handle. The house is beautiful, our kids have adjusted well, we will get through these issues sooner than we anticipated dealing with them but what I have learned is that there is ALWAYS victory…. and you should always have good credit.

In GOOD news.

In spite of all the calamity going on right now and this splitting headache I’m nursing God is ALWAYS right on time. So in our season of waiting and believing we’ve been handed our next assignment.

I met my neighbors next door and they are fantastic. Very welcoming of us to the neighborhood.

My son loves his school and is enjoying riding the school bus.

Addison has adjusted to school well and happily gets up in the morning. The first day I was wreck. I haven’t been since. I think the fact that she is enjoying herself makes it much easier on me.

Addison First Day of School

The impossible happened and we got in this house. The trials we are facing now are nothing compared to what we have endured over the past year.

I have some sponsored posts I have to get up in the next few days and then I promise I’ll be back next week with updates and details. I will probably do a house tour video if there are enough boxes out of the way for you to get a clear view.

Chat later. Have a great weekend!

    1. I like him on the bus as well. I wouldn’t put him on last year. Too much ruckus but this school is much better and he is loving it.

      I have to hustle with this empty nest to bring in some funds. I am not planning to go back full time just hustle so that I can continue to be home with them. Pray all goes well. Triple the size of the house…triple the bills!

    1. Thanks! I can’t wait to really start decorating. The issue is there are so many things to attack, I don’t know where to start.

      Our kids go back early to account for two additional breaks they get during the year. Lil Mama was ready for school!

  1. Yay! Glad everything worked out with the house and that you all are moved in. I am pretty sure that God is going to make a way for the air conditioner and the carpet. To help with the mildew and smell try checking out Walmart to see if they have any mildew spray that is fabric and carpet safe.

    Glad the kids are enjoying school. I am trying to prepare myself for Moo’s first day. I already know that I’m going to be a wreck because I am so used to having her here with JJ and I. But I am looking forward to watching her grow and blossom more into her own person.

  2. Congrats on the new home! It’s been 3 months and I still have boxes…

    We learned our lesson with flooring after our first home..new carpet is a must unless the previous owners just had it put in. I did not budge on that this time around either.

    1. He always has us covered! We got the air fixed, one thing scratched off the list.

      Thank you! She was so excited to be going to school.

  3. Aww this is so exciting and Congrats!!! I cant wait to hear the details too!
    Moving is such a big hassle and the reason me and the kids haven’t joined the hubby up in Nashville just yet.

    1. It sure is, I can’t imagine going out of state. School has started now, will you switch her in the middle of the year or just wait until the end of the school year?

      1. School starts Monday here and that was a big reason we stayed and the fact I got a new job. I’m definitely waiting until the school year is over and to see if he doesn’t get transferred anywhere else. He mentioned Carolina area and Texas.
