House Closed! (Hooray!)

Hello, Dear Readers!

This is just a brief note to help bring closure to our house drama of the last few months. Yesterday, at 10am, we signed the documents to officially hand over ownership of our “old” house to the buyers. What a blessed relief…it is such a joy to just own one home again. And yes, I did do a little happy dance.

To those of you who have followed this house buying/selling saga in much more granular detail than we’ve provided here on our website, thanks for your patience and prayers and encouragement for the last 12+ months. We are truly blessed with so many kind and loving family and friends.

Now, we turn our attentions fully to our current home: unpacking, repairing, updating, maintaining. But first, just to keep things fun, Jay is set to undergo a bit of a surgical procedure today. Because, hey, why not celebrate a house closing with a little surgery?!?!

    That’s enough to make me do a happy dance (you know, if I weren’t at work with a bunch of people who already think I’m a little unbalanced).

    What great news! I think I’ll go have a colonoscopy.

    Glad to hear about the house. Not so glad to hear about Jay’s surgery.

    Congrats on the house! I can’t believe this has taken a whole year, the time seems to have just flown by (kidding).

    I’m glad to hear about Jay’s surgery; it’s about time he got those butt implants.
