Happy New Year, everyone! We had a busy wrap-up to our year, including a trip down South to visit the grandparents in North Carolina. We had a really nice time and the girls loved visiting with their grandparents and playing with their cousins. Yasmeen was especially enthralled with little Devante-her 2 year old cousin. We took walks, made Gingerbread cookies, played, went to the Nutcracker Ballet, went to the movies, and even stopped by to visit Chuck-E-Cheese. Of course, for me, no trip would be complete without a stop at my now favorite scrapping store, Carolina Memories. Yep, I did some damage there, but it turns out they are going out of business :-( and everything was 30% off--Can't beat that!
We also received some good news while we were away...we finally SOLD OUR HOUSE! Yep, we received an offer and negotiated long distance, and when we got back we were in Attorney Review. We are officially under contract now with a closing date of March 15th, BUT...no house on the other end. We have looked and looked and nothing fits us just right. We have put 2 offers in already and lost both for one reason or another (mostly the contingency on our property closing). I'll tell ya, people aren't kidding when they say selling and buying a house are STRESSFUL! We saw some new places Sunday and also today, so at least there are some prospects! So, for now we are in limbo and trying hard to make life as normal as possible for the girls, all the while dealing with inspection reports and appraisals on our current home.
Well, here's to an amazing 2008. Let's hope the next time I check in there will be some good news!!!
