Labor Day 2010 Menu Plan Monday and Praises: Buying our Home

How about this amazing weather? It is absolutely gorgeous! It seems like it goes from 100 degrees to 80 in just a few days. I am dreading the colder days creeping just around the corner. Well, I have fabulous news...we put in another bid on the home we have been drooling over and the bank accepted. I am so glad we decided to call there bluff and walk away, because we got a stellar deal - about 60,000 less than what the home was originally listed at in March. Now thats what I call a DEAL! Now the move is for real and we are realizing how many things need to be done to get ready for the move. Luckily we do not have to worry about packing up our household goods, since the military will do that for us, but we do have to seperate items for what we will need while our stuff is being shipped (clothes, cooking stuff, towels, cleaners, etc). Medical records, school records -- all the paperwork that has to be dealt with to move -- what a bundle of stress. I am so thrilled about the move and it is something I have been waiting for for several years now. I know in my heart, God really answered my prayers with this home. I want to give praises to him for guiding us to this home and helping us to get a great deal. I know we will be able to use this home in a positive way to spread his love and his mission and I am looking forward to the many joyful days ahead of decorating, painting and making it our home.

Now begins the mission to empty the refrigerator and freezers (yes, I said freezers). I think I will call this Operation Empty Freezer -- I know how original...So, for the next 4 weeks, we will be cleaning out the food in the freezer by using all the items from the fridge and freezer to help us prepare for the move. I do not want to have to get rid of anything if I don't have to. Feel free to join me on my quest. I hope to post before pictures soon.
