Thanks to all who prayed for this morning to go well. The closing went very well and we couldn't have been happier with all our financial friends at Gate City Federal. We got into the house and it is still so surreal. We were just giddy with excitment to make it our own. We have also been overwhelmed by the neighborhood and how wonderful everyone is. It sounds like a community within itself and we are excited to get our house liveable and get to know some of these great neighbors.
We also had lots of help today from my parents, sister Laura, and our great friends Nate and Amy Fiala. We didn't waste any time either, we ripped out the carpet and found some beautiful hardwood floors that Richard can't wait to refinish! Amy helped me discover some interesting things behind the wallpaper in the kitchen too! We have lots to do still and will be working on it for at least a week before we can move in and then it will be endless projects I am sure. It sure does feel good though to have our "own" home. I am going to attempt to post some pictures, but for some reason it doesn't always work so well. We're trying to take pictures of the progress so we'll have to put them up at the end at least. Until then, I am one tired girl!
