We’ve been sweating it, agonizing over it, waiting for it, arguing like hell about it (he wants it because it’s close to work, but I don’t want it, yet we both know it’s still the right house for us right now … on and on, around and around) – and we got finally got word.

We got the house.

After all this, and all that we’ve gone through, you will probably feel for me when I tell you Mr. Man’s response just about sent me over the edge. Here it goes:

I wonder if they’re telling us we offered too much?

Oh for god’s sake!

It’s a very good thing I love this man because he could drive a saint over to the other side at times. (I’m sure he feels the same way about me.) Closing won’t be until the early days of January.

The saga will continue … there’s carpet to be replaced and a huge furniture sale to come!

    Congrats, Virginia! I know you’ve been looking/waiting/hoping for months. You’ll have fun moving in and making the house your new “for now” home. Things are looking up for your new year! Jan

    Congratulations! It’s been quite a ride and we couldn’t be happier for both you.
