Hello Blogosphere, It's Me Denise...
I received an email today from a bloggy-friend asking me what in the world was up, where have I been, and more importantly am I okay?
Yes, I am doing just fine. The last few weeks have been a surreal whirlwind experience. My house went under contract this week, followed by a mad search to find a new home. The first night after the we sealed the deal, I got absolutely no sleep. My mind raced all night wondering where in the world we were going to live come October! Now the excitement has settled down a bit and we've come to realize that everything will work out just fine. Please tell me it will work out, right? We aren't under contract yet on the house we like, but we shall know by tomorrow.
To top off the fun of house showings in 45 minutes, PTA meetings, and school functions, my husband was out of town for two weeks. Luckily the technology exists now where you can electronically sign documents, so getting out counter proposals were a snap with us being in different locations. I am even more grateful for the last minute arrival of my parents to come help me out during J's business trip. I think I would be a weepy puddle on the floor tonight if they weren't here for 10 days.
The best part of this entire process, is imagining the possibilities. Talking about the future, riding by the house we hope to soon call home from school and relishing in the fact that it was only a 5 minute drive. We currently live 2 towns away from school and our commute is something I've never complained about because we love our daughter's school, but living 1/2 mile away is like sweet buttercream icing on the cake.
Speaking of cake, I'm off to enjoy a Sprinkles Cupcake my wonderful husband was kind enough to bring home from Beverly Hills for me. It's a tradition that makes his return much sweeter.
