We got it!!!!

As of 8:40 this morning, the house is ours, totally firm, done deal.

[insert buyer's remorse here - still waiting for it to hit]

Schedule housewarming for early October when the leaves on all the trees in the backyard are bright colours but it's still (hopefully) warm enough for a barbecue. Or, if not, we'll just hang in front of the enormous living room windows to the backyard and enjoy a wood fire.

Now bring on the cleaning, decluttering, weeding, and lawn-mowing at our current house so we can get it sold asap. We were aiming to get the house on the market by next Friday, but I just looked on my calendar and saw that it's Friday the 13th, and I'm sorry but I just can't do that. So Thursday it is.

Hope your move goes smoothly! I hate the packing and unpacking and painting and... ugh.

Hope that, for you guys, it is smooth and stress-free!

Congratulations! I guess it really was meant to be... I'm so excited for you... of course now comes packing which, ahem, sucks.

Oh well, enjoy the glow for the weekend before you get stuck in with the work.
