You Take The Good You Take The Bad

Our bid was accepted on the house. We should be moving at the end of October providing all the bank stuff goes through, and the other tedious details go according to plan. It's our first home. Mr. Lane and I have been together 17 years, and finally are getting our own house. It's an exciting time for us.

Even the kids are excited. I thought we would have a little trouble with them because they will have to change schools, but they are both taking it in stride and treating it like a big adventure, even though moving has been on, then off, and on again. And of course they are fighting over who gets which room. I love those two brats.

As if it couldn’t get any more exciting than that, our mortgage will be cheaper than our rent. How crazy is that? Plus, the schools there are better than the public schools here, which means, no more parochial school tuition. Being able to do more than get by will be nice. It’s been a long time coming.

My sweet and wonderful Uncle Giant has been fighting with all of his might. The cancer has spread quickly. Please send your good healthy vibes or prayers or whatever you got for him and Auntie Shorty.
