I will tell you how we came to buy a house which resulted in us selling our present town home. Marvin and I find ourselves at Annunciation a lot since being confirmed there. So we took a ride around the neighborhood behind the church. It would be nice to be able to walk to daily mass. Marvin is working with the St Vincent DePaul society so he is at church quite a bit. In addition he attends the mens group that meets on Saturday mornings at SEVEN. The bad thing about this neighborhood is that houses seldom go up for sale there. One recently came on the market but it was sold before I could even go and look at it. Marvin and I began to pray that if we were supposed to move, God would bring the right house for us to the market. Here in Decatur, real estate moves so quickly that realtors tell their clients to have a house to move to before selling their present home or they could be homeless. Well a nice house came on the market...we went to look at it as soon as possible and we won the bid on the house. Yes, you pay above asking price in most cases. So we are moving to The FARM. ( the name of the subdivision). Here is a picture of our new house.
We put our house on the market and it sold in 7 days. Being a townhouse was not in our favor and our town home is a middle unit so it had to be someone who did not care about that as well. But the right people came along and we close on both houses at the end of the month.
So the next two weeks I will be packing like a whirlwind. I have already packed up two rooms so I feel I can get it done. We will have about three days at our new house before we close on the townhome so we can move some of the fragile things before the movers arrive.
And in the midst of this, we had a trip planned to Tybee Island/Savannah that was already paid for so we had to go! More on that on Friday.
