We have just four days until we move out of our home. Four days. Crazy! 

The hubby trying to (unsuccessfully) take indentations out of our carpet.

We met the renters yesterday and they are super nice. For those that don't know, the hubby and I are moving (for at least six months) to Florida. Our lease won't start until April 15. 

The hubby clearing & cleaning. It is amazing how much STUFF we had!

We advertised our PA home for rent and got an amazing couple. They sold their MD home and are building a home here in PA. While they have their home built, they needed to rent. So they are going to live in our home while their home is being built.

Our kitchen. We are using these two outdoor chairs & a crate as our only seating in the house. Everything else sold.

We have been storing almost everything in the guest bedroom. It is the last room that will need the paint fixed.

We decided to find a temporary rental here in PA so our renters could move in after their closing. We found a place just about two miles down the road and will move on Friday. A friend owns it and gave us a great deal. 

Our home for 6 weeks while still in PA.

It has been COLD here in PA. Snowy & cold. We are so exciting to be moving to FL. Florida is in the 70's and we were in the negative temperatures last week. 

Sitting in the car for a few minutes while the hubby ran into the grocery store.

Driving home from the grocery store.
I was amused when I woke up and my clock said "DIE". It turns out that when we replaced the batteries, the language setting was changed from English to German. It is amusing me and so I left it.

Yup. -6.7 degrees.

-12. That was the actual temperature. I realize some parts of the country deal with colder temperatures than PA. I don't know how they do it. Do they stay inside all the time? Wear some kind of protective sleeping bag/snow suit?

We won't have internet in our rental. Thankfully our phones get great reception and we can check our emails, Facebook & watch Netflix on those. I am hoping to blog with my phone but I am not sure that is actually going to happen just yet. So this blog may be silent for awhile :)

I hope everyone is having a great week!


  1. I am so glad everything is working out for you. I hope you can blog again when you get
    to Fl. Hang in there ~ you'll be in Fl. before you know it!

  2. Thanks Holly! We are really enjoying this part - the packing & cleaning. Each thing we do is one step closer to FL. Thanks for the encouragement :)
