The house is sold! One open house and 24 hrs later its done. Well sir that was definately quicker than I was thinking but I’m glad its over and done with. Our closing date is June 1st so the hunt is on to find land or/and a house by that time. Driving home from work the other night I was feeling really sad to be leaving it. Even though the plan was to sell, its still MY house. MY very first house, and its not like I’m tired and ready to move on from this one. I still love it. The location is great, the house is fab and I love our lot. I know deep inside it really is time to move on but your first house is a special one, one that will remain close to my heart. I don’t even want to know what they will be changing or repainting, gahhhh that just kills me!!!
So moving on, we’ve been looking at some land and a few other fix-er-uppers. June first won’t be long coming around but we still have a little while before the perfect thing pops up. Whatever it is I’m ready for the challenge. Sock on the other hand…. I’m not so sure about. She knows new people have been romping through her house but I’m not quite sure she knows we’re moving yet. Poor thing, she’s in for a shock when we do.
On thursday night Moose and I went to see the Watoto Children’s Choir at one of the local churches. Watoto is a response to the critical AIDS crisis in Uganda. They provide homes for orphaned children of the epidemic. They place the children in a family enviroment rather than an orphanage. The houses are given a house mother and eight children. The villages are little clusters of these homes, a school, water project, medical clinic and multi-purpose hall. Its a fantastic organization, one I’d love to help out with. So the choir gives these children a chance to travel, share their stories with others and raise awareness about Watoto. The kids were soooo energetic, they didn’t stop dancing the whole time, they made me tired just looking at them. I apparantley had my camera on the wrong setting while at the shop and therefore can’t get any of the pics I took off it so you’ll have to watch this instead.
Check out this video I found on You Tube of the show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOthH4zg5ug
