Fortunately, the new house is not too far away, only a few miles or so.
However this is the worst time of year, in my opinion, to move a household in Florida.
Ninety degree temps, then it rains without much warning.
But it'll be worth it. We'll be trading a small 1920's cottage for a 2 story, 4 bedroom (plus dining and living room and a small room that extends like a balcony that I'd like to call a solar) house which has a fenced yard and a cool as hell iron spiral staircase that opens to the kitchen.
Twice the space and 200 less in rent.
The future landlord seems pretty reasonable and easygoing. He's letting us move stuff in before WE do.
The only snag is that we won't get a key until we transfer the power into our name. Since the utilities Co won't let us hold 2 places under the same account for more than seven days, we have to limit ourselves to when someone else will be there and let us in.
I'm sure it'll all work out in the long run, but I'm being a bad girl for spending time on the computer instead of loading up the car with the outdoors stuff that can be safely left outside.....
Oh! and we will *finally* have an "official" guest bedroom. It will be fairly spacious and open to the bathroom.
As soon as we're settled we'll plan on a house warming party. Anyone who feels like visiting Orlando is welcome to it.
I think we are both very excited!
