Sold!

Well, to us - not by us...

Did I mention we bought a new house? Oh, I did but sort of not really? Well, for all of you who didn't just point blank say to me "did I miss something?" we bought a new house!



There it is! We originally had a closing date at the end of Sept. Then the sellers moved it up to Sept 1 which really means Sept 2 due to Labor Day and then we moved it up to Aug 29 - so we could take advantage of the long weekend. And hey - if you're going to have 2 mortgages - what's the harm in a couple more days? (*sigh*)

We're excited to get in there and rip up some carpet, tear down some wallpaper and paint some walls. Of course our "to-do" list is a million miles long and I think we'll be hiring some pros to do some of it but soon we'll be in our new little house, nestled in the woods. I can't wait!

Now....if only we could sell our current house......

See, there could be some advantages in having the two homes for awhile. THe work needing to be done on this one, and then having the other one to fall back on for quiet places for Dahlia while workmen (or women) are there.

Or are you going to just go wholescale get out of the other house so no need to mess with realtors?

And I have pictures of your VIEW. It's so exciting that you're so close to the park and the lake.
