We closed on the house today (Friday the 19th). All done and it was really a great experience. Rick (son) had it 99.99% done before he left on a trip. He did more than I could imagine, even down to compiling a list of utilities with phone numbers. And we had a fantastic realtor that just happens to be Ricks neighbor. What a great way to get better acquainted. In fact, when he brought the keys over this afternoon along with this beautiful orchid and gift cards he said “I hope you have as great of neighbors as we have.”
It was late afternoon before we got the keys so we will run over and take measurements in prep for furniture purchases tomorrow (Sat.)
The house, whoops home, is in Peoria in a small gated community. It’s on a lake and came with a pontoon boat. The house is a little different and I love it. I’m sending some pictures as they tell the houses story better than I can. These were taken for the sale and I’ll send more in future blogs as I furnish it. It might take a while as a lot of things are in storage but I get to shop for a lot too, as it was better than moving everything down to Arizona.
We still have things to get but we got a couch/chair/ottoman/ and small desk for the family room. Beds for two guest rooms and a desk for the office. They will be delivered Tuesday and now I am getting excited seeing go together.
