Our house is almost officially sold. We signed the contract lastnight. I was crying so much because as excited as I am about the new house being built, this is our home that we have had since we got married in 2000. We got married and had our children while living in this house. The kids do not want to move, but I know they will be more excited when the building actually starts and they can see something happening. I showed them the floor plan the other day and let them know which rooms were theres and they are slowly coming around. We are going to live with Chris' parents until the house is finished. I hate to impose on them just as much as I'm sure they don't want us imposing. It is just hard when you get to used to your own space, but look at all of the money we will save in the house payment we would have had and what not. We are going to help them with their utilities and groceries. I know we will probably still be there at Christmas and I have been concerned about Chris' sister when she comes down and about where they are all going to sleep! :) I figure all the kids will sleep in the living room floor and Cindy can have the spare bed because you know my kids will think they have to be with the big kids. We are getting a couple of acres put in our name right now and are waiting on the surveyors to get that going and we have to decide what contractor to go with. I am meeting another contractor today who is actually building a house right next to our land so he is very familiar with the area and knows my mother in law. Wish us luck!
