Like I said in a previous, it seemed like a perfect option for us. And our moving day couldn't have been better. It was cold enough to keep the ground frozen to prevent ruts and getting stuck--but only as cold as it HAD to be for that. No wind. No rain. It got moved in time to not require the previous owner to pay lot rent at the mobile home park it was getting moved from. Our mover had actually moved this exact mobile home INTO the park, and had moved another one off the landing farm before, so he was familiar with both ends of the move. And he was cheapest by far, not to mention good old country businessmen who deal with cash and handshakes. Its been a long time since I've had that--and it was refreshing.
It was a great moving day and we couldn't have asked for it to have gone better.

We have a lot of great ideas for making it a very liveable--and growable--home for us, one that will last us a decade or more, hopefully.
We have worked nearly 30 hours to prepare and move it since finding it less than 72 hours before--on only 6 hours of rest in between. And we have many more hours of work ahead of us.
But for tonight, we rest. And we are thankful. We recognize the beautiful orchestration of so many things to make today not only possible, but a resounding success--and to allay my time crunch fears and put us back on schedule. I can't say how many times we said "if we could just get a trailer by February 1st, I think we'll be ok on time." Friends, February 1st is in 90 minutes--and this is the first I've been able to chill and relax and decompress and relax in the past few days.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." -- Romans 8:28I love that verse, and am sad to always see or hear it in a somewhat negative light (i.e. even THIS annoyance or trial God uses for our good). But there are also times in which it is nothing but good.
And today has been good.
