New Place for the Holidays

Let's see...since my last update on the house situation we were waiting on our close date (on the house we were selling) and actively looking for a new place to call "home".  Our close date was December 1st and all went smoothly. After a lot drama we finally found a rent house and started the moving process right away. We only moved 1 mile from where we were so we thought that we could handle things all on our own and move ourselves. We did handle it all on our own but it was a lot of work and we were exhausted at the end of each day. It took us a total of 11 days to do it.  All the days included packing and cleaning, too.  We had cleaning at both houses.  The rental we found was very dirty. It took me 3 whole days to clean it before we could begin moving anything in.    

We are now, finally, all moved into our new, temporary home. It feels so good to have it all behind us.  It all seems so weird though.  I guess everything just happened so fast that we really didn't have time to process the fact that we would no longer be calling that house "home".

Where to go from here? Well, we are settling in to enjoy the Christmas holiday and relax a little.  All the while, we are actively looking for our new place to call "home".
