Our neighbor accepted our offer on the house and property! Now she is in process of finding a residence and work in TN. She’s had a few offers but couldn’t accept till we came to an agreement. The bank said they need 2 weeks to close so by this time next month we’re hoping to be moving Erika and the kids in. It will need a few touches of paint and a few updates in the bathroom but then she’ll be good to move in.
The good thing is she’ll be moving in with what ever we can put together for household items so she’s not going to have a bunch of **stuff** . Erika was able to get her old kitchen table (we have extra chairs) and a few kitchen items from the house before she left but that’s about it. A friend gave her a couch and we’ve been watching after Christmas sales for deals on pots`n`pans, sheets, towels etc. I’ve a few more quilts in the works for them that need to get finished. She’s my thrifting queen & has an eagle eye for jewels in the rough to make over. Right now her attitude is if “If I don’t have it & it’s not life altering I don’t need it”….Besides, she only needs to step across the back yard for anything she needs :)
We on the other hand now have a longer “GOTTA DO” list. need to wash the siding, paint the small deck and put up more railing on it…purchase guttering and down spouts for the new house. When the original owner built the place he didn’t put them in. She said he didn’t like the look.?????
I also need to finish trimming those darn bushes!
I think this spring we’ll be doing quite a bit of landscaping. I’ve plenty bulbs, hosta and other plants here that need thinned & we can use them with out adding a landscaping expense.
Sounds like fun to me…anyone want to come play?
