A couple of bits of good news...

We bought a house!!!!!!! It is in the town of Phillipsburg, NJ in the older part. Nice quiet street, one of my daughters will go to free preschool () and my oldest will go to school about 2-3 blocks away. And it has a large yard with a pool and a hottub! We should be moving in 6 weeks, I can't wait!

And then tonight as I was getting the girls to brush their teeth, I heard a hot air balloon (they take off from a restaurant parking lot at the end of our very long street) going over the top of the neighbors house. I thought it was going to crash into the trees for a few minutes. It and another one landed on the grass airstrip (our across the street neighbor has a airplane) and deflated them then left. Here are a couple of pics...

Actually we have a pallet full of boxes down in the garage already from when we moved here. I am not looking forward to the actual packing part but when we are moving, my in laws will be here for over a month!! And that is a good thing cause they kinda planned their visit when we were all hoping to be moving! I am so happy!

I was in this same position just a few months back, so I know how you feel.

Congrats on your new home!

I am just so relieved to finally have a house that will be ours for years. I will miss the area that we are in for the views, seeing deer walk past our house, a couple of turkeys, groundhogs and then there are the bats and fireflys that I can watch for hours. But this house has a fenced in yard for our dog, its in town so we will have neighbors and it will be ours!!! Yippee!

I've lived in relatively solitary situations and now in an apartment block in the city! Diversity can be good and sometimes having neighbours around and having chats and get togethers can be lovely..and clearly you have a beautiful ruralscape there. I get you get your own brand of wildlife there...and just think..you can make a stash and knitting centre all yours..all of YOUR very own..and you own it..whoo hoo

Are your kids excited? You all may have a few tears but that is just natural.
