Escrow closes tomorrow.....

Escrow closes tomorrow!

The all food in all the freezers (3) and refrigerators had to be double bagged and all the food in the pantry's.
We were out of the house for 4 days and an extra day just to make sure all the chemical has cleared.

After getting back in the house we had to wash all bedding and counter tops and all clothing left behind while the house was being tented. 

We then discovered that out motor home has some mechanical issues - GASP!!!! that's gonna be our home and transportation to Colo. - We cannot have any issues!!!

Took the Motor Home to be looked at and found out that the master Processor Computer that runs the entire transmission is bad, and needs to be replaced!!!  How can this be.......Our Motor Home is only a few years old and we only have 7000 miles on it!

Motor home Processor was discontinued and they had to find one that could be repaired....they posted a nationwide search and ......they found only one (1), the next day in New Jersey - shipped it the same day and rebuilt and installed it in (2) days!  God is working overtime to get us to Colorado on Schedule.

We met the new Owners today and had an opportunity to tell them all about the house.  They could not tell us enough - how much they love it and they Promised to take very good care of it!  You see for them this is their Dream Home of what they believe to be the essence of California  Living.  They are from Europe and can't wait to start their new life here in America.  They told us that they were concerned with being able to find a home that would like.......Our home is perfect for them and can't imagine living anywhere else.

We are finishing packing up the barn........the Movers come on Tuesday - Motor Home is now being washed and detailed.   Final walk through will be on Wednesday and we are to be out of the house on Wednesday 26th at 5:00 PM we will spend the night at my daughters home and and begin our Journey on Thursday  GOD willing......

Our plan is to drive as far as we can get during the day and stopping some where in the evening to sleep and get a fresh start the next day in the morning. 
We will be talking our time and enjoying the scenery on the way.

So the next time I post I will post from my new local - Colorado's beautiful "Garden of the Gods"

Thank you everyone for all your comments, emails, and well wishes, Cards and Packages!  And thank all of you...who have follow me on this journey.

love you all, God Bless

Hello Lovelies,

As we sit today We have two cash offers....the first offer that we accepted the day after our First open house and a second one that is now in "Back up status in case the first one falls through,,,,both are Cash offers.  And the second cash offer - had offered our Broker an additional 10K to bump the first Bidder's off the deal and replace them with there over full price offer.  Wow!  If we had waited a day to accept the first offer we may have had a bidding war on our hands :)  But, they are in the backup position now.  We also have a second back up offer waiting also if the first and second offers fall through!  It's just amazing to me  - all that has happened to make the selling of our home so very seem-less... Thank you God!  We are very blessed, especially when so many others are loosing there homes.  God keep them safe!

Yesterday, we went to the Escrow Office to sign the final payout papers.  we only have afew more day in our home before we have to vacate : (   -   Everything has happened so very quickly - God has us on his lap right now - I feel so very blessed!

Today the new Owners will be bringing a contractor by give them estimates on some future additions they will be adding once they move in to there new home.

I went to my local CROP group last night to deliver the news of our home being SOLD - everyone was so so supportive and a little bit stunned that my home ad sold so quickly and that this is really gonna happen this time.

I will miss all of my close friends very much!
I was able to talk with a few of them who where there, Laura, Alma, TJ, Vicky, Kat, Sharon.  I love you guys!  Thank you so much for embracing me with your friendships when I first came to the Pine Cone Press family.  Debra and Walter, who are the owners, Thank you so much for your support and thank you so much for the 8 opportunities to be a featured published  Designer for your magazine.  You have given me so much confidence and acknowledgment, for my design work......Thank you for you friendship and confidence in me, and my work! I hope to do more business with you in the future : )  You will be missed!  As for thest of my dear friends from the Sunday Stampers group I will try to attend my last meeting this month before I leave.

I will update you with more in a couple of days if I can .....Miss all of you so very much!

God has a plan!

Where can I begin....
Over the last two weeks we have done everything our agent asked us to do - our house was painted, staged, in time for our open house which just happened this last Sunday.  Yesturday we recieved a cash offer for our home and we accepted.  Our home is now in escrow.  We now have only 20 days to pack and be ready for the movers....Everything has happened so fast I simply have no words for what I am feeling - God has helped us every step of the way!  It's a bitter sweet for me and I spent my entire day yesturday in tears as we accepted the the gererous cash offer from the new owners of our home.   The next step now is to select the movers that will transport all of our precious belongings to Colorado Springs. 
For now I'm without to many words...But I do know that God has a Plan.
