A very happy Saturday. June 27, 2007
You know how when you’re looking for a job, and you get an interview, you start telling people about it? And then after the interview, if you don’t get the job, you have to tell those same people that it didn’t work out? And after doing that a couple of times you decide not to tell anyone you have an interview until after you’ve already got the job, so you can give them good news instead of having to relive your disappointment over and over again?
I’m kind of afraid of that same thing happening to me right now. Not with a job, but with our house. But I’m doing it anyway.
I think we sold our house. Yay!
We got an offer on Saturday, which was also moving day. Moving day was long and hard. You know what makes a long hard moving day better? Getting an offer on your house.
It was a little lower than we were prepared to accept, so we countered. Then he countered. And yesterday, we accepted his counter. So barring any unforseen issues, we could close on our house on July 13. Which is two and a half weeks. Holy moly.
Lots of exciting things going on around this place! We are officially living in our new house. Well, kind of living. We sleep and bathe there, but that’s about it. We just got our refrigerator yesterday… we have been living on nothing but water bottles, granola bars and fruit snacks for the past few days. Our TV was also hooked up yesterday, but we haven’t had two seconds to sit and watch anything yet. Aaron has been fighting with the bathroom sink for two weeks, but he finally won yesterday so we can stop brushing our teeth in the kitchen sink. We can’t wash clothes because the new house has the wrong kind of outlet for our dryer plug.
But still! We live there! Our stuff is there! Miles is there with his incredible echoing bark! Yay!
We leave for youth camp on Monday. I am nervous. I’ve never been the point person on a big trip like this one before. We’re taking 25 kids and 5 leaders to Centrifuge in Ridgecrest, NC. I can’t wait to get there… it’s the getting us all there in one piece part that concerns me. This the first time a lot of these kids have been to a youth camp before, so I am really excited for them to experience it and to get to be there with them. Our group needs to do some bonding and I think this week is going to be huge for that. Your prayers are appreciated.
Aaron is out of town this week for the third time this month. He will get back Saturday night, giving him Sunday to rest and wash clothes before we head out again. That is assuming of course that I can get someone out to fix our dryer issue before Saturday.
Any of you guys have mad electrical skills and want to come help me out? That would be awesome.
