WE GOT THE HOUSE!

Or to be truthful we got a 30 year mortgage. (Chris, knock it off with the buyers remorse thing)

Yep, "Whatever Deity" willing and the creek don't rise, Jeff and I should be moving in about this time next month. Trust me, I need that month to pack and throw the last 7 years up and away, but we are both excited as heck about it all and Jeffy has the place completely remodeled already; blueprints included! He had better get used to looking at those for quite awhile.

The only drawback is that I have to deal with that black hole of a spare bedroom of mine and worse yet face all my deepest fears again....... all my UFO's!

Best to y'all,

Chris

Yowza. But then again, I did always think that your profile picture looked straight (pardon me...) right out of the "ANNOUNCEMENTS" page of the paper.

Congratulations. I'll start knitting the baby-booties. (This was a shotgun wedding....that's what all the girls say).

Not tonight honey: I'm knitting...

Yes, and I love looking down the barrel of that shotgun!

No, I think you're referring to the "dungeon" and yours should be in the basement, like mine and most other people's!

Heyzeus Christos!

Now I gotta dig a basement! The money pit starts already.
