movin' on up

Well it’s official, we’ve got a buyer! We accepted an offer on Sunday and plan to move in just 2 and a half weeks. Luckily we’ve been moving boxes every night when we go over to the new house to work out so I just need to hire some movers for the biggies. This is such a huge relief. Life has sorta been put on hold for the past 2 months and it’s nice to be able to move forward with our plans.

And apparently those plans include all new appliances. John and I went to a little appliance store the other day at the recommendation of his buddy, who knows the owner. In our typical fashion, we walk in with a list: Washer, Dryer, Refrigerator and Microwave. The new kitchen already has a stainless steel range and dishwasher so I was under the impression that we didn’t need these. Oh was I wrong. It turns out, John has a major problem with the dishwasher saying Frigidaire and the refrigerator saying GE. Silly boy. So by the time we walked out of the store, we were ordering the GE Profile Washer, Dryer, French Door Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Range and Convection Oven/Microwave. But I don’t dare complain about the added expense because I know what I’m doing. I can use this to my advantage. When it comes time to put the deck on and Shannon starts planning it around a glorious new hot tub, John won’t be able to complain. I will keep this little nugget of extra spending that I don’t necessarily agree with for some bargaining power. I am in great need of a hot tub. I will win any hot tub argument. It will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine.

Um, what are you doing with that old dishwasher? How about I trade you for that hideous white beast that's in my kitchen??
