Ready, Set, Move...again

We got a call yesterday from the lady we are renting the house from to tell us it's all cleared out and ready for us to move in. Whew! I'm excited to have all of our things unpacked and in one central location, but not ready to move again. It seems like only yesterday we were packing up our things in C'ville and moving here. Wait, maybe that is because it was less than 3 weeks ago that we were doing that!

The house is an older small 2 bedroom, 1 bath (blah, I know!) home. However, it has some real perks. We are finally going to have a nice fenced in backyard for Chloe. We will have a downstairs basement with a fireplace and my favorite: 2 huge UT Vol murals painted on the walls. Ha! I saw Clint's face drop when he saw those for the first time...and even more when the homeowner said we can do what we want, but no painting over the UT pride! I'm telling you, it really doesn't pay to be a gator fan in these parts! We also have so much storage it's unreal. No more storage unit for us. There are a few drawbacks but I won't focus on the negatives because I know we only have a 6 month lease and if we don't like it we can leave. We are making a mental note of it all so that when we begin house shopping we'll know exactly what we want in a home.

I've scoped out the area and even though we lived on the very top of a hill, there is a sidewalk that winds down it. Perfect for my morning jogs. Maybe not the most idea neighborhood, but hey with what we are paying, it works :)

So, if you don't hear from me until sometime next week, you'll know why. Hopefully, we can get the Internet hooked up soon so I can post pictures.

That is awesome! I know you are ready to have all of your stuff in 1 place! When we moved to Nashville, we lived in a one bedroom apartment and over half of our stuff was at my parents for 6 months! Aaaaggghh! Talk about going crazy. I wish you all the the luck in your future endeavors. I cant wait to see a picture of the UT murals- thats awesome!
