10 days until we move to our new home in Florida!
With our current home in disarray; tripping over boxes, the work bench and bead desk half packed, you know I am freaking out.
We sold our current house within 10 days of listing it and was approved for a new one the next week!
How crazy fast is that!?!?!
We leave Wright City, MO. on the 13th, right after Mike receives his soliris treatment, and begin a 5 hour journey to Nashville, Tennessee. The next day we travel through Alabama (Hi, Marcie!) and Georgia for 8 to 9 hours. It is at this time I predict I will be stark raving mad, my sciatic inflamed and my mind fried from dealing with maniacs on the road. I will be breaking my fast of caffeine and chocolate at this point and if Mike is smart, he won't get in my way (Mr.Perfect, I am so healthy now, I don't need extra serotonin.). We rest and begin the last 5 hour leg of our journey on the 15th, traveling a total of 1,200 miles to arrive in Satellite Beach, Florida where we will take possession of our new home!
A long haul.
Nerve wracking but exciting!
We priced movers to come do the hard work for us while we fly us and the kids to Florida, but at $4,000 for the truck, labor and fuel, there was no way.
I checked the money tree and it just wasn't growing that kind of bounty. :)
So with careful planning and many down loadable movies for the kiddos, we're doing it old fashioned.
We will need to close down the shop for 8 to 10 days from April 9th to the 18th. This is really hard to do, because it is our main form of income, but with all the handmade items I create, there is just no way to keep it going while I finish packing and travel.
Will you miss me?
Or will you forget all about me?
What if upon opening, I have a huge sale and send free beads with every order?
This would be a very rare occurrence as I have strict principles about discounting handmade merchandise.
(Don't do it. Ever. Unless you need to feed your children. Which at this point, we will need to.)
Believe with us for a safe, smooth journey and I will be back to post many pictures of our journey.
