WE GOT IT!!!

WOOHOOO! Or Yeehaw as we say down here! We got the house! Our agent called a little while ago to let us know the guy didn't counter ANYTHING! Crazy, but whatever!! So, on July 13th our adventure here ends and a brand new one starts! We told Pippin but he doesn't seem to understand (although he's a little frantic all the time watching everything go into boxes!) Our realtor is going over tonight to get the signed contract so now we just need a clean inspection and appraisal. Lord knows what an inspection on a house built in 1910 will uncover, but we'll see! Brent and I will definitely have to drive by and take some pics now to post. But for now, I'll just tell you it's Victorian, super cute, 11 ft ceilings, original wood floors, 3 fireplaces (including one in the Master) and it has a little wall urinal in the master bath - something Brent has ALWAYS wanted. (Must be a guy thing).

We were antsy all day and now we're just ready to move! We packed a lot tonight, including dismantling the guest bedroom. No one will be trying to stay with us now!!!!!!

Well, I'm really behind on reading about what you guys are up to so it's time to read a little and then get some sleep.

See ya!

That is so cool. Good luck with all the details. With an older home there has got to be some remodeling to do, maybe we'll see you on one of those home improvement shows on HGTV, TLC or Discovery. Exciting stuff!

Congratulations on the new house!

When can we get Skeeter to install this urinal accessory for Brent?

That's great news!!! I love how you guys call "downsizing" moving into a 2200sq ft house! :)

The wall urinal would have sealed the deal for me as well. Congratulations!

Yeehaw! Congratulations, too bad we couldn't all come over to help you move! With 700+ RBF we could just about pass stuff across town to your new house! Oooh, but think of your food bill for the party, you know how much runner's, Tri'ers and such eat!

Girl..

sorry..just been caught up with my trainig week.

First...OMG, my parents are like that..they ain't too cheap but they are not supportive at this crazy training stuff. And every time i do something, they always complain and give advises on how it should be done.blah blah blah :D..

Second, congrats to u and Brent on the 5 k race. Good job on first place and more importantly the PR. That's a huge improvement for such a short distance.

Third, congrats on the house.and yes.every GUY dreams of having a urinal in their house..i dream of two :D..

ppjCongratulations! It sounds like a beautiful house. I can't wait to see pictures of it! And some new vid of Pip would be fun to see - I can just picture his reaction at watching all the packing up...my Sophie is the same way. She gets real frantic at the thought she might be left behind!
