Closing time

Closing time
Open all the doors and let you out into the world
Closing time
Turn the lights up over every boy and every girl.
Closing time
One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or beer.
Closing time
You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home
-Semisonic
Today was the closing date on our new home! We are now the proud and bewildered new owners of a tiny home on beautiful Rockley road. Rockley road. It even sounds cozy! We headed over today and brought the dogs with us to let them get familiar with the place. The Mister had a blast going through all the tools and whatnot that were left in the garage. Among other things, a chainsaw, baseball bats, and an old record player/stereo. We put the bats to good use right away, tossing apples to one another and trying to hit them. Yes, we are adults. I even managed to hit one, and received a chunky apple juice shower. Delicious!
We really didn’t get a whole lot done, but we got a better lay of the field and have been discussing plans. Most of our savings went toward this new place, so we’ll need to rein in our renovation plans a little. It’s a good idea too, because we can be impulsive, the tight funds may keep us from heading in there with sledge hammers a-swinging! For the moment, this is a start to our Free or Cheap to-do list:
-Clear the trail to the water
-Sort through the items in the garage and sheds ( sell whatever we don’t want)
-Sort through the items in the house (sell whatever we don’t want)
– Yard work( mow lawn, rake up apples, trim apple trees, whipper snip tall grass behind garage and see if that’s where the garden is!)
– Seal off upstairs and gut the rooms
– Rip up living room carpet
– Tear down wallpaper in living room
– Seal up windows and doors for winter months.
Meanwhile, back in Salem, we have some massive decluttering to to do! We will be downsizing significantly and since we managed to fill up all the extra space we had here, it will take some work to get back down to some basics. I’ve browsed some Declutter your home! blogs and websites and am feeling slightly less overwhelmed and slightly more motivated!  But first, a good nights sleep!
Goodnight! 🙂
