48 hours is all it takes...

You all know how we adopted the dogs 2 weeks ago and set our closing date for 10/23 on the house. Things were good, I was going to start packing this weekend, we were going to look at furniture, it was exciting.

On Monday when I got home from work, I realized our apartment had flooded. The upstairs washer was not hooked up properly, and a whole wash cycle of water went through the floor/celing and into our apartment. Our carpet was drenched, the kitchen and bathrooms floors were flooded, and some of our posessions were ruined (but nothing of too much value).
So we contacted the sellers of our house because we knew they moved out last weekend. They are wonderful and told us we could move in early. We love them.

So on Tuesday night after work I packed up as much as I could. Yesterday morning, JJ, his parents, and their friend started moving it all over, I worked a half day, got home, packed the rest, and we were completely moved into the new house by 4pm. All of our stuff is packed so randomly and it looks like a tornado went through, but we're there!

I can't possibly put into words how great it felt to sit on the back porch with JJ while the dogs played in the back yard!
I also can't wait to go for a long run Saturday morning. It's supposed to be in the low 70's, and I have a new route!
We don't have cable and internet yet, so I might not update for a few more days, but I'll get photos up asap.
Thanks to everyone for your well wishes, and for reading about what a whirlwind it's been for us :) Your encouragement has meant a lot (and kept me semi-sane).


  1. Hooray! I'm so glad that you're doing well in Florida and the weather is finally nice to run outside in! That stinks about your apartment but I'm glad everything worked out! :)

  2. That's awesome you got to move in early! Sorry to hear about the water mess though, yuck!

    Enjoy your run!

  3. Yay! So glad you got out of the flood and moved into your new home :) Have fun decorating!

  4. How exciting! Can't wait to see pictures!
