Good By Crazies tomorrow

This will be my last post for a while because Internet will be down and haven't figured out yet to post to my blog with my phone.
We are moving out of the CRAZY Motel tomorrow and THANKS to my friend Dani (Eagles Wings) we have a home in the country for the fur babies. It was her persistence that found this house and I am in N IL and she is in CA.
We will be moving about 60 miles from where we are now in Motel. Very nice quiet town and nothing but farm country all around us. The house is a little rough (mostly bedrooms) but they have remodeled  the 2 bath rooms and kitchen. Will take time but will wait until we are setteled to worry about bed rooms  Here are some pictures of house and the area
 This is the house..3 BR 2 Bath and a pantry and 2 enclosed in porches .House has been empty since last Fall but will look a lot better when we have time and energy to do some cleaning up
 This is some of the buildings out in the field
 This is wood burner in Living room..Just need to make sure is clean (which it isn't now) and then check chimney and figure out how to use it
 The bathroom down stairs has been remodeled and I am sure Billy will enjoy this walk in closet
 Opps..Got 2 pictures of remodeled kitchen and sink is off center..Doesn't matter that much..It is a full size sink
 Also has elec stove (that needs cleaning and side by side fridge
 This pantry will hold a lot and will also be where the cats food dishes will be. Any mice that come in there are commiting suicide (also needs a good cleaning)
 This is 1 of the bedrooms (yep..also needs a good cleaning)
 Maggie and Annie and Calli checking out one of the closed in porches
 Maggie and Calli exploring the living room
 Bianca and Annie exploring the living room
 Met the neighbor across the road and she has 2 rescue dogs
 This is an older Rottwiler and they think it was abused
 This is one of the barns that we have access to. They say it will hold 3 cars but I will NOT park my car in there and take a chance of mice or other animals chewing the wires
 Drive past this when going back to town..Billy Loves the scenery there
 Went to town and was construction every where but we did get to see this train museum and another museum
 I Love old cabooses and have always wanted a real one
 Frint of train museum but wasn't open when we went there
 This is just one of the corners we stopped at in Town
 NO MORE LIVING LIKE THIS
i CAN ACCEPT COMMENTS FROM MY PHONE BUT WILL WAIT UNTIL WE GET UNPACKED AND COMPUTER HOOKED BACK UP TO POST AGAIN

Oh Nancy I am sooooo happy for you - this is a step up and then some from that motel.
The house is actually quite adorable...it has a real Prim/Colonial feel to it - you will have it looking like home in no time.
Oh I can't wait for photos of the fully restore home and all your wonderful treasures filling the rooms.
Your puppies and kitties will be in heaven with all that room to run.
Could you have gotten any more lucky and thanks to your friend.
Blessings to you!!!
It has been a long road for you all.
Karen

Nancy, I am SO happy for you! Looks like you've found your HOME! Once you get it all cleaned to your liking and all your things in there, it will be so comfy. I hope this is it for moving for a while! Sorry to hear your daughter is moving away, but sounds like a wonderful opportunity for her. Now get some rest and some HEALTHY food in you! Take care! ~~Annie
