The Moving Boxes Part 1

Well it looks like most of you want to hear about the picture of the moving boxes first. So that’s what I’m gonna do. Because you all rock and I love ya! But don't worry, I'll be posting about our vacation after the moving box story is done. (If my Mom can wait that long. LOL! Hi, Mom!)

In order to not overwhelm you with a lot of words and information all at once, I’m going to break this into 2 parts. Easier to chew and better on your digestion. I don't want you all getting sick because I got a little wordy! AND I know you're busy and it's not all about me. (Though I think this week it should be! HA!)
So here we go!

Most of you remember that we got a contract on our house 4 months ago, the last day it was on the market. I packed 95% of my house and then the buyer backed out 10 days before closing because of a lower appraisal right?  (That’s it in a nutshell!)
Since our house was no longer on the market, I unpacked everything. EVERYTHING! I just wanted to move on with life.
Two and a half months later the house that we had intended to buy had lowered in price by almost $30,000. This motivated to us to put ours BACK on the market at a lower price to sell quickly so we could snag the house. (It was kept pretty hush hush. Hence the reason most of you didn't know! LOL) The first week we had 2 showings, then after that, nadda, zip, ZERO. Meanwhile the house we want to buy gets a contract on it. We aren’t really worried because this house is a short sale and it’s had PLENTY of contracts on it the whole year it’s been on the market. So we press on.
Fast forward 7 weeks. My husband is looking at the MLS (a daily thing) and the house we want to buy is GONE. SOLD!
Now what?
Come back tomorrow for part 2. It gets goooooood!
