Take Me Home, Country Roads, To The Place I Belong..West Virginia!

John Denver sang this song when I was a kid...and I am singing it now!



Don got an accepted offer on the Ivy House yesterday! Since we had all our homework done and Don purchased from a motivated Seller, we should be able to close on the house two weeks from today and the Sellers have agreed to give us possession on Monday, July 23rd! Now we can do a door to door move and will only have to spend one night in a hotel when we get here. Hopefully TMO will pack out and leave with my household goods on the 20th or so and can deliver them to me on the 24th. Looks like things are going to work out perfect with our time line. We knew it was a sign when our lender called yesterday morning to let Don know that the mortgage rate dropped a quarter of a percent over night and reduced our monthly payment by almost $200! I know some of you are probably tired of seeing pictures of the house, but my kids and my parents have trouble opening pictures sent via email, so I promised I would post them on here. My Mom will be glad to know that the rooms in the house are bigger than I orginially remember and so is the closet space.

Here is a picture of the sunroom from the outside:



Inside view..love the stamped concrete floor and the tiffany lamp:



View of Ohio River yesterday from patio:



Dining Room:



Guest bath downstairs just to the right when you come in the front door:



Full bath upstairs:



Wine Closet in lower level, and no, the wine doesn't stay...Don actually asked! The Seller, pursuant to the contract terms, is suppose to leave us a bottle of blush champagne to celebrate our move in day:



Cast Iron mailbox just outside front door:





Today will be spent opening checking accounts, selecting an insurance agent for our homeowners an car insurance, visiting Don's office and touring part of the City of Pittsburgh. The high today is 77 degrees and we might get an afternoon thunderstorm. Would love to do some shopping, but will wait on my Mom to get here for that. Better get moving on my day. Hopefully I will have some pictures of the sites to upload for you tomorrow. I keep forgeting to take a picture of the bridge in Ohio that looks exactly like the big bridge in Savannah. My Dad and I have an aversion to bridges that my Mom and Don just dont fully understand, huh Dad? Love and miss you guys!
