Roller Coaster

We still haven't heard whether our offer has been accepted. I can't remember the last time I wanted something this badly. This means I'll really appreciate it if it comes through. Things are accelerating pretty quickly despite this ticking clock in my head over the pending acceptance. Having to be out of here in 44 days is kind of crazy-making, but, as Zaphod Beeblebrox once said, "I find it contracts the mind wonderfully."

Unfortunately it also means we'll be moved up north before Lizzie's wedding instead of afterward, which was not the initial plan (life got in the way), but it's no big deal to fly down instead of drive over (and means more Alaska Airlines miles!). What with this plus all of the other goofiness (good, bad & indifferent) going on in our lives, we certainly don't miss having cable TV. Life is dramatic all by itself.


  1. Good luck, I hope that you get the place.

  2. It's looking good. Our agent phoned today with a question which had a "no worries" solution, and it sounds like we will be getting the place for the asking price. Initially there was some hint of "another offer" about to come in from left field, but we're starting to feel like the seller's agent was just trying to generate some excitement. Frankly, this is nerve-wracking enough without that kind of fooling around! Hopefully we'll hear on Monday...
