*contingent* offer accepted I should say.

We have identified our dream home (dream for the next 10 years anyhow – due to location) and they have accepted our offer. Once it’s closer to being a ‘done deal’ I’ll give some more details. Until then cross everything that is humanly – and for those of you with slightly more skills, beyond human – possibile. I want this house. I want to sell my house. I want to settle in a new home that is better for my family. Please, please, please, make this work.

Just 19 days until I become a parent of a teenager. Time has snuck up on me.

Anniversaries

Filed under: Family & Friends,Mr. Wonderful — by InterstellarLass @ 7:43 pm

Today we celebrated a couple of things. Firstly, today was one year ago that Pop moved in with us. It seems like he’s been here forever, and I mean that in a good way. I think he’s much better off than he was when he was living by himself those last few months. And despite his fall back in December, with therapy and TLC, his arm has healed and he’s getting around pretty well.

Today is also Nick and my ‘monthiversary’ of our first date. Yes. We still celebrate that. And Starbucks thanks us. And, true to last year, today was hectic. Last year Nick was driving Pop back from El Paso, and we were exhausted by the time they got home. So we skipped Starbucks. Today, we had four showings on the house, and Nick and Pop were exhausted. So tonight we skipped Starbucks too. No matter, we’ll go on Wednesday night for our free Pike Place Roast.

So, we sit here, tiredly looking at each other across the living room at critiquing Mario’s dance moves on Dancing With the Stars. Ah, love, ain’t it grand?

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

Yesterday, we ACTUALLY listed our house for sale. I can’t remember how many times I thought I was *thiiiiis close* to being “done”, but by this last weekend, we were ‘done enough’ to get photos taken and the listing made. There are still a few nails to counter-sink, and some paint touch-ups to make, but all of the major components are in place.

I thought that would be a relief. But not so much. Because of course, every day in the news the stories about the housing market decline get worse and more depressing. And my mom works for a realtor continuing education company. The news she hears there is depressing too. So, of course, NOW I’m worried about how long it is going to take to actually SELL the house.

Of course, a miracle could happen, and it could sell this weekend. But I’m not going to try to hold my breath as long as David Blaine waiting for that to happen.

Today, Nick had a dental appointment. A big one. So I took a half day off and went to the dentist with him to hold his hand. He HATES having dental work done. I seriously considered taking him to a sedation dentist. But with the help of about 7 vials of numbing agent, a raquet ball, and some Sinatra, he made it through the 2.5 hour appointment.

I also had my running class tonight. We’re on week 4 I think. And since the 3rd night, I have been struggling. That 3rd night I had a GREAT run. Everything felt wonderful, in place, moving as it should. And then BAM! I’ve been in pain ever since. My hip, my knee, my ankles, my calves. They are not cooperating AT.ALL. In fact, I think they are in a conspiracy against me. Well, I’m not giving in. I’ll move slower, at a walk if I have to, but I am not giving up.

Tomorrow, Iron Man comes out. I’m taking the day off and Nick and I are going to the first showing. We’ve been waiting for this since someone used their iPhone to pirate a copy of the trailer shown at the Comicon in San Diego last year. I love Jon Favreau, and of course, Robert Downey, Jr. Hottttiie!!! And then I plan to just chill.

Actually, I’ll probably try to do some of the aforementioned painting touch ups, but then again, maybe not.
