And let me just stop you all right here and tell you that no, I am not pregnant, and BITE YOUR TONGUE! This kitchen is closed people.
Now, onto the secret...
WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!
Woo hoo!! I can not tell you how excited I am because the real secret is that we have a contract on another house that is being built and if our house didn't sell within the next few weeks, we'd have to back out and I would need to be committed to some sort of mental hospital. (And wow, that's sentence probably just set some sort of record.)
But, the good news is that it doesn't look like I'll be wearing a straight jacket any time soon.
I think I mentioned the new house briefly on the blog a while back, but I was hesitant to post too much about it because I didn't want to have to then come back to the blog and say we had to back out. And that you could now reach me via a mental hospital. But, last week, even before the house sold, I had decided that I really needed to put it on the blog because this blog is really a journal of our life. And even if we lost the house, I'd still want it to be in my journal.
So here goes...
Yay! We chose our lot!
Yay! We have a foundation! (And yes, we all had to pose with the new member of the family.)
Up until Sunday evening, when we got the offer on the house, it had been really hard to get excited about the new house. Joey and I both love it more than we can express - it's pretty much everything we had on our list, plus the location we always wanted - so it was hard having that nagging thought "if the house doesn't sell, we have to give it up" in the back of our minds.
Last night, for the first time, Joey and I both said how excited we were. It finally feels real!
