REJOICING AND FREAKING OUT AT THE SAME TIME!!

Hey ya'll.........

Glory Hallelujah, Praise the Lord and whoo! hooo! we got a contract on our house a few days ago and  everything is signed off and I'm sooooo rejoicing!!!!

We decided to put our house on the market because we plan on retiring in a couple of years and moving back to Phoenix and with the real estate market so depressed in AZ we figured we'd have plenty of time to sell this one and find a great deal there.  Absolutely thrilled about our house selling given the market here and already found a great rental in our neighborhood in one day (God thing, ya'll)!........BUT HERE'S WHERE I GOT MY FREAK ON, YA'LL........

WE'RE CLOSING AND MOVING IN SEVEN DAYS!!!!!!!

S.E.V.E.N.!!!!  D.A.Y.S.!!!!

COUNT THEM 1,2,3,4,5,6 MOVE!!!!!

O.M.GOSH!!!!!!

This is me RIGHT NOW!!



And my Sweetie has his Captain Kirk freak on!!

And this is what my kitties, Murphy and Maggie think about it!!!



I think I'll just go hide, ya'll!!!


Oh, I just had to throw this photo in!!!.......
Honestly now, have you ever looked this happy, relaxed and beautiful when you're MOVING - they look like they just returned from a 10 day cruise to the Bahamas!!!...if only!!!! lol!!





But I know by this time next week it will all be done and we'll be rejoicing!!  PTL! Hallelujah!




But for now, I've gotta get my PACKING SUPER FREAK ON, ya'll!!!!!!!




Soooo, I won't be blogging much (duh!) for the next week or so!

 I'll be back when I UNPACK MY MAC!!!


I'm thanking Jesus......

I have strength for all things through Christ
Who empowers me (I am ready for anything and equal to anything
through Him Who
infuses inner strength into me)
Phillipians 4:13 amp


Praying that YOU and I have an
 "infused with inner strength through Christ" week!!
HE IS FAITHFUL!!

Luv, Hugs and Sweet Blessings!

Andrea said...

Definitely a GOD thing! Praising GOD with you and can't wait til you get back and tell us all about it...in detail, of course! If I had to move in 7 days, I would either shoot myself or surrender all our junk to the next owner...there is NO way to get all this junk moved in 7 days.
Blessings, hugs, and LOTS of prayers,
andrea

Beth.. One Blessed Nana said...

Jackie - I certainly wish that I lived by you because I LOVE to pack! I know that is weird, but I do!

Wheny my baby girl was 6 weeks old, we had to move and I packed an entire house by myself with a nursing 6 wk. old, a 3 year old and 4 year old. But I just thrive on it....

Love to you - Beth

Angela said...

Terri Tiffany said...

I'm laughing still over that cat picture!!!
Congrats on getting a contract so quickly. You should have told them you wanted more time:)) But in this day and age--I'd do it in 7 days too!

RCUBEs said...

What a fun and funny post sister Jackie. But to me, it's also a wonderful testimony of God's goodness. Nothing is truly impossible with our good God! Glory be to Him! Congratulations and though it might be nerve wracking to pack things in a short span of time, I'm glad that you found a new place. God bless you and keep you.

Debbie said...

Jackie, I'm thrilled for you!

It must be God's will because most people can't sell their homes in this crazy real estate market here.

I'm glad that you may be moving back to the valley though because then I may get to meet you in person.

Hugs,
Debbie

Sonja said...

oh boy Jackie... I'm not Beth... and I'm glad I don't live by you right now!!! I think we need Beth to live by us! :)

Super my friend... I'm so excited for you!

Hugs!

Washer Mom Val said...

Wow. I hate, detest, moving. Blessings to you and congrats on selling as you wanted! Phoenix - isn't it very hot there? :-)

Brenda said...

Wow 7 days! It took my 2 months and some to pack up our house of 28 years when sold it and bought our current home 3 years ago. I was a grump during that time. But I do not think it was the packing I think it was the leaving of the home that I raised all three of my daughters in. Many blessings on your move!

Jennifer @ Getting Down With Jesus said...

Well, that is wonderful news! And you make it all the more joyful with this super-fun post. You're a hoot.
