Up to My Ears in Cardboard

Cardboard boxes that is. I don't think I've mentioned the status with our house since the "Sike" post. I think I was afraid to say anything in case things didn't work out this time. So, we sold our house again. A few weeks ago. We are set to close April 25..the Monday after Easter.

Since we will be at my family's annual Easter celebration in Lumberton that weekend, we are moving out this weekend. And by moving out I mean moving in with Matt's parents, not into a new house yet. We close on the new house on May 6 and will have a couple of weeks with no home, so Matt's parents graciously invited us to stay. Boy are they in for a treat. :)

I'm really excited about the new house and want to tell you all about it. However, we have a contingency contract on it until we close on our current house. So that means that there is the potential of someone coming along and putting in a better offer and the sellers would give us the option to either drop the contingency (meaning we would agree to buy the house even if we don't close on our old house) or walk away. And obviously we are in no position to own 2 houses. So although the chances of that happening are slim, there's still a tiny chance.

So right now we are knee deep in boxes. We have half a storage unit full. We are digging through boxes to find food to eat. And we still have a ways to go. Saturday is the big move day. We're hoping to be completely out by Saturday night. Its really exciting..but not as exciting as it will be to get to move the weekend of May 6. We'll keep you posted on the progress and can't wait to invite you to our new home!

Oh, and if you're free this weekend, feel free to come move some stuff and eat some pizza!
