Life recently has seemed to be full of big excitement. This is how I like things, although it seems hard to catch my breath at times. We sucessfully sold our house, and survived the inspections, negotiations and subsequent work that followed. (the front yard has a huge trench in it, but this is no longer my concern!!) We have also found a house finally! After looking at about 20 and a ridiculous amount of research, we have put in an offer that I think has been accepted. I think tomorrow we will find out for sure. I have even collected a couple of boxes for moving. Wow, I can't believe it is really happeneing. I have been on the Ikea website 50 times already and have my new kitchen planned out perfectly (did I mention that we bought a fixer-upper?). It seems that life is not about to settle down a bit for a while, but at least I'm not going to be bored!
I am so excited about moving into a place that was bulit in 1900 and restoring it to some of its original splendor. The park across the street has a great playground and a pavillion that was built when the neighborhood was built.
