Do You Believe In Luck? We Bought a House!!!


You may believe in luck.  You may not.  Despite the trials and tribulations on the all little things of moving (and yes, I have griped about many), on the big things, well, things have sure been falling into place for The Clan Harrell since we arrived in California.

  • Day One in California found a house. 
  • Went into contract in Cali the EXACT day our Cary house closed.
  • Closed our Cali house EXACTLY one month after our first day here.
  • Girls are officially registered in the local school - Sarah got the last slot in 4th grade.
  • Mick's officially registered in preschool - just 1 mile from the house.
  •  I survived 3 hours at the DMV with a 3-year old in tow (that is very lucky indeed).  For all my Ga Tech friends, I even got "Word" for Scott on the license test - that sucker is really tough out here - no joke. 
So now, it is time to make our house a home.  They are tenting for termites this week, and the movers are arriving with all our stuff next week.  Scott is traveling and buried at work right now.  And managing the arrival of all the boxes wasn't a project I could manage by myself.  Scott's mom is flying in, because, that is what mom's do - they rescue their kids when they need help, no matter how old they are.  My mom wanted to come help too, but she is on the injured reserve list for a couple of weeks.  She even offered to come, against doctor's orders, because that is what mom's do.  But, we figured we had it covered with Jan's help and are going to get Shirley's help in September.  So with all the great timing, the support from friends, and the amazing love from family, I am definitely siding with those who believe in luck.  Because I sure am feeling lucky today. 

That is life in the stroller lane.
