Well, it's official. We pulled up to the house today (to start our radon tests) and the for sale sign no longer says "for sale"....it says "SOLD"!!!! We were pretty excited.
We rented a storage unit in Stephens City right up the road from the house. We packed up the SUV with as much stuff as we could, filled a friend's truck with a bunch of stuff and headed out to Stephens City this morning to start filling up our 5ft x 10ft storage unit. We figure over the next couple of weeks we will be able to move a good amount of our stuff so that on moving day we will only be left with the big furniture but we shall see if that all works out.
After packing up the storage unit, we headed over to the house to start the radon tests we had bought. The tests will collect a reading over the next few days before we have to send them back to the lab. After that was all set up we headed out for lunch. We decided to try out "IJ Cannes" an American Grille restaurant in Stephens City/Winchester. The food was pretty good, I had a burger and Ben had a BBQ beef sandwich. Shenandoah Chocolate shop sits close by the restaurant so we walked over to check it out. Yummy.
The people at the restaurant and the chocolate shop were so nice. The owners of the chocolate shop talked with us and gave us information about the area and even told us about some spot in Washington National Park that only the locals know about. We are both very happy to be moving out that way. It seems like the people are a lot friendlier and that there is more of a neighborhood-like feeling.
