Getting Closer!

Of course, during this time, I haven't been able to make any new art, so here is an older watercolor piece - "Country House".  It reminds me that we are getting closer to the move.  There are still a few things up in the air that must be resolved, but I feel that it will all work out.

In the middle of trying to get our home loan from Bank of America, we threw in the towel - and started over with a new lender. (With only 3 weeks till closing!)  Crazy, yes?  Maybe, but BofA was really making us crazy!  The new lender says that the loan will be in place well before closing.

Yes, my nerves are shot, and my house is a wreck - but if all goes well, we'll be in our new home and close to my family in about 4 weeks!  Then, once I get things unpacked and organized, I'll be back at my art table, ready to get creative again!

Moving Soon!

We sold our home last week!  I feel so lucky, since it was only on the market for a little over a month!  I've truly loved living in this house - and having all the outdoor space, but it's time for us to go back home.

Then, as soon as we got the contract finalized, we bought this house in Blue Springs, MO!  It's a much older home, but has been updated some.  So much smaller on the main floor, but it has a full finished basement - so it will work!  I can't wait to be living closer to my son, daughter and grandkids again!

Now, we just have to get through the next few weeks of inspections, appraisals and whatever else gets thrown at us, then we'll be good to go!
