Silly: Geez, a two week break?

I didn't mean to take two weeks off, but boy has a lot happened since the last time I blogged. Let me sum up:
  • Thursday, Jan. 28: We listed our house "just to see what would happen." We settled in for the long process of selling a home.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 10: We got an offer on the house for 99% of our asking price. Um...what? 13 days later?!? God is really doing crazy things. We accepted the offer. (Duh.)
  • Thursday, Feb. 11 (morning):  We put an offer on a little place we found in Brown farm.
  • Thursday, Feb. 11 (afternoon): The offer on the little place was accepted.
  • Thursday, Feb. 11 (early evening): Community Auto called and said they had administered Last Rites to our sweet little Saturn, Ruthie. She needs an overhaul that will cost more than she is worth.
  • Thursday, Feb. 11 (later evening): I got so overwhelmed I couldn't stop crying. The house thing is ca-razy. I am so sad about my little Ruthie, but I know it'll work out just fine.
My lack of brain space has resulted in absolutely *nothing* profound coming from me tonight. Really, I am just so humbled at God's provision and timing: if all goes as planned, we close on both houses on Wednesday, March 31 and will presumably be (mostly) settled before the baby comes in May. The new house is smaller square footage wise, but it sits on 1/4 of an acre! So, Olivia will have a swingset and the dogs will get to run around! There is open space behind us and it's going to be so fun.

More later. Peace out, homies.
