This is my new home!I know that I have posted this picture before but it is the only one I have of our new home. We found out yesterday that our proposal was accepted. We have a new home. We will be paying $10.00 (that is not a typo) for our new home. Yep, ten dollars. Our new home in Paducah, KY (not another typo). We are moving to Paducah, KY.
Artie came home from work with these for me.They are so lovely.
We went out for a celebratory dinner at one of our favorite restaurants here in Saratoga. The owner sent over a bottle of champagne because he heard we were celebrating something. When he found out that we were celebrating the ownership of a ten dollar home he made a joke that we should be buying him the champagne. The girls had non-alcoholic delights and we toasted to our thriftyness, our luck, our 3400 square feet, our own bedrooms, our kitchen/dining room that will be bigger than our entire apartment, our new garden space, Michael's studio, Xan & Victoria's 'Kookie Bar', Artie going off to college, and to us 'The Terras'.
Michael and Xan are leaving in June to head down to Paducah and start the renovations. Artie and I will stay here in Saratoga, get jobs and pack up the house to move. We will send Artie off to the Tom Savini's Special Effects Make-Up program at The Douglas School at the end of September than on I go to Paducah to live in my new house. Artie will not see it all until Thanksgiving. Weird, huh? I told her that I will stick all her stuff in her room and she can deal with it then. I'm such a nice mom.
It's almost official. We don't even know yet who to make the check out to or where to send it.
But we know it's ours and we're moving.
