after 30 years of marriage and 22 years in this same house, we are stepping out . . .we put our house on the market and it sold in about three days . . .it showed twice on the first Tuesday that it was on the market. One of those families came back the next day and made an offer . . .and we have to be out by June 16. So what did we do? We looked at a million houses - oh . . .the beauty of the internet -- sure takes the pain out of looking at all those houses!!
Annnnddddd . . . .drum roll please . . .tatatatatatatat . . .we put a contract on a lovely "cottage" - yes, it is called a cottage - don't you just love it??
So now my daughter has me addicted to pinterest (which I do not have time to do right now) . . .and we've been looking at colors and fabrics and chairs and sofas and bar stools. Why bar stools? BECAUSE we have this incredible island in the kitchen
We met the interior designer today at the house (she works for the builder and goes to our church - what a small world!!). Mark DETESTS the color that the house is painted now sooooo we put in the contract that we need the house painted. Picked out three colors today - much warmer colors . ..makes us happier.
I'm procrastinating by blogging - Mark is being a servant tonight down at the Firehouse Shelter - feeding the homeless . . . I am packing boxes . . .or will be as soon as I get off my fat a . . .oops. Didn't say it!
We move in on June 16 . . .come visit now, ya hear!
