Ugh. I couldn’t get comfortable on the couch last night so at about 2 a.m. I went upstairs and slept in my bed. I didn’t wake coughing–so either I’m finally beginning to make progress with this stupid sickness or the cough medicine worked.
When I had dragged my sorry butt out of bed and had drunk at least one cup of coffee, I checked our email and found an email from the woman at the bank who is helping us with our mortgage. She told us how much we’d need at closing and it was less than we expected, and we think we can do it, so we are making another offer on the house. Although I’m trying hard to not count my chickens before they are hatched, I really expect the sellers to accept our offer. They had counter-offered with several options, such as if we paid the full price, they’d help pay for the closing, but the less we paid for the house the less closing costs they could help us with. Since it’s the closing costs we are most concerned with, we are offering full price with help with the closing.
JJ decided not to have the car today so he wouldn’t have to get up at 5:30 a.m. to take his Dad to work. He had told me that he was planning to spend the day writing. He also is trying to find a singles group or something in the area so that he can meet people his age. JJ said he’s really excited about life up there.
After reading what JJ wrote about his first week up north, I told him he should write a blog about his experiences. I wasn’t sure if he’d want to invest so much time to it, so I asked him if he wanted to become a contributor on this blog and occasionally write about his experiences up North. He agreed so as soon as I can set it up, expect to see some posts from him. If he doesn’t get too busy, that is.
I took Danny for his walk early this afternoon, and then went to the post office for the mail. Then I spent the several hours this afternoon working in the yard. The weather was really nice–in the mid-70s–but I was working so hard that it felt almost too warm. I thought, “It’s a good thing I’m moving up north where the temperatures are a little cooler.” I used to like warm temperatures, but I think I have some snowman DNA in me.
My guys are coming home–they are on their way right now as I write. They should be home in a few hours. I can’t wait to see my guys. After I finished working in the yard, I made homemade pizza for them.
