We got the House!

They accepted our offer! We are so excited! We have a busy couple of weeks, probably months coming up now.
We will be moving into the new house as soon as we can, the only thing it needs to move into (besides the obvious calling the utility companies to turn stuff on) are light fixtures. When the previous owners left the took all the fixtures out, not even a light bulb left! Other than the lights, everything else that needs fixing can be done while we are there. We will have to find someone to come out & put up a fence too for the dogs, but until then, we will be installing a couple of those chain link kennels that Lowes or Tractor Supply sells for them.
We will be putting this house on the market, so there will be lots to do here as well, painting, cleaning carpets, landscaping & such. Since my grooming shop is set up in the basement of this house, we will have to move that as well. Robert's family has had a piece of property that was used as a restaurant for a long time, then he used it as a commissary for his catering trucks. It's perfect for a grooming shop, but we have to get all the restaurant equipment out of there first. So as you can see, lots to do before things are set in place & we can get back to normal. I'm tired just thinking about it. But I am looking forward to it all.
I have lots of ideas running through my head about how to decorate the new house, so I've been busy looking online for ideas. I think I'm going to go with a Native American or Log Cabin theme since the house is set in the woods.
Anyway, best get off here & try to get some sleep, I hope to get started tomorrow, cleaning things out & getting things together for a yard sale or two.
Until next time......
God Bless You all & hug those furkids for me!

Hooray, Angie! I'm so happy for you! Sounds like a lot of work ahead, but it will be a labor of love. Wish I could be there to help you clean, and move, and all that, but I'll just have to be content with wishing you well, and lifting a little prayer now and then. Congratulations!
