Finally! It only took over 2 hours to get all the paperwork signed. I tell you one thing though if you ever buy a house make sure you have a real estate attorney. We always have and it always goes without a hitch. This time the attorney was going to cost a lot more and we waffled a bit but went ahead and hired him. I am so glad we did! There was "posturing" as the attorney said. I called it being a horses butt, but in the end everything was signed and we are happy.
The front of the house already looks different. While I was at a stand still in the moving due to the carpet cleaners in the house we all attacked the three palm trees on the left of the front door. It looks so much nicer and you can actually see the house.
We had our first meal in the house. How nice! Can you tell which ones are paying attention to their diet and who aren't? Ray is still being VERY good, I am good, but with a coke, and Joseph is just eating what he wants most of the time with the occasional good meal.

Four days until Tuesday!!!!
We went looking for some living room furniture today. I guess I must be strange but out of five furniture stores I found one sofa that I liked. Nothing else. No end tables, no lamps, no dining table, nothing! I must have strange taste. I could go to one of the furniture stores where you basically build it to suit you, but I really didn't want to spend that much.
I don't like a sofa that you have to have a crane to help you get out. I don't like deep seats so your feet can't touch the floor, either that or your legs stick straight out like Edith Ann. All of the fabric choices were so hot looking too. Not hot as in nice either, hot as in turn up the A/C. I couldn't sit on many of them to even try them as they looked like they would make you sweat and itch if you did. On top of that it was 97* today, UGH!
We came home and turn the A/C to freeze your butt off and took a nap. NICE!
It looks like my old sofa will show up at the house after all. Oh well, it could be worse...I could not have a sofa at all.
I have found a couple of quilt tops I thought I had already finished and gave away. Apparently not! LOL
I have so much to add to my To Do list.

I was doing some blog surfing this morning (like most mornings) and saw on Judy's website she is doing a Quilt in an Hour. I will be in the middle of the move, but I will plan on doing that one!
Go check it out! You will love it...well at least I do. It looks like it would be a very versatile design.
I guess I will print it out and work on it as soon as my sewing room gets set up.
Speaking of sewing room...That is the first thing I plan on moving. I figure I will need to have something to help me relax during this. As a matter of fact...I have already thought I will pack my truck with a lot of my sewing room and have it ready to go as soon as we return from the realtor's office on Tuesday morning. SMART! LOL
PS. have any of you ever heard of the game Animal Crossing for the Wii? Well my youngest son played it on the Nintendo DS and when we bought the Wii he bought the game for that system. I am ADDICTED! It is the only game I can play and not die! Actually no one dies on this game so I am pretty safe. LOL
I plant flowers and fish and give money to the town for improvements...I know silly but it is fun.

I worked on my "Welcome" applique while I was there.
I am making it similar to the pattern cover but think I may give it away. It looks too dark for the new house. I have never made quilts to match my house, but I am not sure this will go at all. We will see.
In two weeks we close on the house so I am in full pack up/clean up mode. We are working on this yard today to get all trimmed and weeded. The weeds are at a minimum (thank you mother in law!) but I have one tree and one huge hedge that has to be trimmed up. Things never stop growing here in central Florida.

I brought some applique to work on so I hope to feel like working on it this afternoon. Right now we are headed out to eat lunch. No one cooks around here, and with Ray HAVING to eat carefully I am going to go to the store and buy stuff for a big pot of vegetable soup.

I know I have been a bit busy looking for and buying a house, but what happened to the year? Do you realize it is just over 16 weeks until Christmas? Christmas was just here!
I have a feeling this Thanksgiving and Christmas will be like last year's. We had just moved in the first week of October last year and this year it will be the last week in September. If nothing I am consistent! LOL
I am so glad I went to the retreat because I am sure I won't get any sewing time until after the move. And everyone knows once you move it takes forever to get the sewing room set up since the other members of the family don't seem to understand it's importance. The husband seems to think the most important room is the kitchen and living room and the son will probably agree. Oh well, I can't help it they are ignorant. :^)
It's all good!
