I went back with Hank to Atlanta on Sunday. I looked at houses ALL DAY and then after Hank got off he came back and looked at the two I had it narrowed down to. We quickly eliminated one and are still thinking about the other. Man, I wish this was as simple as finding a new pair of shoes. But, anything worthwhile is worth our time, right? Hank and I keep reminding each other that it is our responsibility to find our family a good home with good schools. So even though we are frustrated and tired, we are determined! There are some decent prospects, so our heads are definitely up!
So Tuesday a few of the showings fell through and I ended up kind of on my own wandering the city. So I dropped Hank off, found Target, did some shopping, and since it was a nice day, sat in the car with the windows down and read. I met Hank for lunch at IKEA, then I went and did a little online househunting (no longer fun, by the way!). After that, I found another quiet place to read and wait on Hank to finish his day. When I got ready to go pick him up, the car would not crank. So he walked to me and a very nice security guy came to jump us off.
Anyway... it was a long day. And because Hank needed to replace the starter in the Camry, instead of meeting my Mom halfway, we drove all the way back 'home.' That term has taken on a whole new meaning now. I want to say, 'Ah! It's good to be home!' And I am comfortable here... but it's getting bare around here... cabinets and drawers cleaned out. Toys packed away... pictures off the wall. Our reality is again about to change.
Well, we've come to the point where we will not be able to close on a new house by the end of May, so we will be moving in with my parents for a couple of weeks at least. Hopefully we will be in our new home (wherever that is!) by the end of June! Gotta get my kids settled and registered for school after all.
