I have worked on a cruise post off and on for over a month, but life keeps getting in the way of me finishing that post. The part of life that is preventing me from getting it finished is that we are once again moving. This time, back to our home state of Illinois.
We’ve been in Texas for over 7-years, and it has been an adventure, to say the least. However, we have two kids and grandkids in Illinois who we really want to spend more time with. Now that hubby’s job is completely work-from-home, it’s time to return to our roots.
Our house in Texas sold within 48 hours. We received 29 offers, which was CRAZY!!!! Everything is moving along on the sale end.
The purchase side of a new home hasn’t gone quite as smoothly. We put in an offer on a house that we REALLY liked but had trouble negotiating a good deal with the seller. We found another house that is on a lot that is almost double in size. Both houses are new built homes, and it appears we have negotiated a deal on the second house.
Sorry for the silence here. There’s been a lot going on and one day I will get back to my cruise post and share more about our move adventures.
**Edit** We are now under contract on a new home!!!! Yay!!!
I cannot believe you have been there seven years! The time is flying by!
We moved to Texas December, 2015. In some ways it seems like it’s been longer. In other ways it feels like time has flown by. We’ve definitely lived a lot of life in the past 7 years.
