We signed an offer at 10:30 lastnight. Our house is sold! the people take possession Oct.19, so I want to move latest Oct.12... 5 1/2wks away! But I get new flowerbeds. Maybe even a veggie garden, if we find a big enough backyard. (but room for a kids play structure, comes 1st!)
To give the lawyers and bank to get the morgage and property transfers in order we have 2wks to find and buy our new house. And I thought the stress would be over after we sold this place...

Sounds great! Congratulations! I guess I better get those seeds in the mail before they miss you... I can't find my tiny ziplock bags.

LOL northspruce We'll have our mail forwarded for 6mths!
Yes we are excited about new flowerbeds. I think I'll hire our contractor to dig them quickly, b/c I have so many plants that I am bringing from this house! Plus I want raised landscapping tie beds, and hubby will not want to go to that much trouble.

It ended up taking forever to sell the house, but once we had an offer, we only had 10days to find our new house to give the lawyers/bank for the morgage enough time to get everything in order. So that part went fast. Plus the buyers of our house wanted Oct.19 possession date, so we knew the latest we could take possession of a new house would be the 15th. It all worked out and now I have to pack!
The backyard does have a small flowerbed that I missed the 1st time we were there. So I am actually going to have our realtor call the sellers and see if I can come and put my plants in so they're in the ground atleast.
I'll have the planter boxes built in spring.

The sold sign went up on our house today. The buyers got their morgage signed sealed and delivered. We get to do ours on the new house at 5, I'm so excited!!!

Congratulations! It is an exciting time, isn't it?

Did you get permission to plant into the new small flowerbeds at the new house/yard?

It is very exciting. I just can't wait to be moving into our new house!!
I haven't heard about being able to go and plant the flowers yet. The lady that we bought from is away, to be back on Monday. Our realtor said she'd be hearing from her on Monday or Tuesday and would ask then!!! I hope it can happen, but we had another light frost lastnight!!!
