A New House

The sellers accepted our offer! WoooHooo!! It is ok to party for a minute or two before we have to calm back down and remember that there are still several hoops to jump through. No real celebration till we sign the papers and it is legally ours. So, right now we are set to officially sell this house on October 15 and officially buy (and take possession of) the new house on November 6. You might notice that there is a 3 week period where we are homeless. Scary stuff!

Fortunately, we are going to be staying in our friends' house. It is so generous and sweet of them to take us in. I am excited about being close to the Metro for 3 weeks and I plan to take Captain Adorable to a few of our national museums in D.C..

I am sad to leave our house...and also really, really happy to leave our house! I am not sad at all to leave our neighborhood. Just last night I went to the grocery store to pick up milk and there were people yelling obscenities at each other in the parking lot! As Captain Obvious said, one does not have to look far to find a reason to leave this place.
