We found a house! Actually, I should rephrase: God found us a house.
After Dana told me Kim and Quinn’s house was for sale, I called them to find out how much they were asking. It turns out their house was sold already: they listed privately and it sold in one day. That should give you an idea of how quickly houses are moving in Dalmeny, and how worried we were that we wouldn’t find one. Well, the next day Kim called me and told me that their neighbors have a rental house in town that they were thinking of selling. I called them and we took a look at the house and fell in love. It is so cute! It needs a bit of work, like new flooring (carpet+cat+Clay’s asthma=bad news), but it is in very good shape. We made them an offer, conditional to the sale of our current home, they accepted! So now we just have to sell our house. We listed it last night and are praying our realtor can work the magic he says he can. I’m sure everything will work out.
Tomorrow we are heading off to E-Town for the weekend to see Clay’s family. Markus’ first big road trip! Please pray he’ll travel well.
It’d also be nice if we have a boatload of offers for our house when we get back. One can dream, right?
And Mom and Dad get home on Saturday! Sadly we won’t be here to welcome them home at the airport, but I can’t wait to see them when we get back. I’ve missed them this past month, but I’m very glad they got the chance to go visit the Enns’ in Kenya. Wish I could’ve gone!
