With the stroke of a pen

We got the news yesterday - we are officially off the market!  Of, course, something could go horribly wrong with the inspection and torpedo the whole deal - but we're going to assume that won't happen.

Tim is here this weekend, grilling, mowing, and throwing out shoes, and will stop on his way back tomorrow, to look again at a house in Grimes and get things started on that end.

This is the last week of classes for me.  I was able to finish my public speaking class early - submitting my final speech on Thursday.  There is a paper - Bruckner's "Symphony No. 4 in E-flat Major" (Romantic) - to write and final test in my music class.  And an easy finish for the library class.

Packing can begin in earnest.  The city sponsored cleanup week begins Saturday, and I have my list and several growing piles to contribute to the beauty of our fair city.

It will take more than the overcast skies and the threat of rain forecast for the week to ruin my good mood.

Great news! I was just thinking about you tonight and wondering how the house hunting was going. Let me know if there is something I can do for you. This is exciting!
