OUR house!

Waaaaaaaay back in April, we had a dinner par-tay with some of our friends. Anyways, when Dolores and Shawn got there, they gave us a bottle of Israeli champagne. We're not really champagne drinkers, per se, but we decided that we would save it for a special occasion.

Well tonight we took the bottle over to Josh's parents and killed the bottle gently opened it and took a mighty swig gingerly sipped its essence. WOW was that good. It was so nice to toast OUR house!

We got the keys at 4:45 this afternoon, drove over, changed to the fancy dancy new locks, did a few other things and popped out a window screen which I noticed was ripped. We'll get that repaired tomorrow. We're having someone from Sears come to the house tomorrow and give us a quote on carpetting...we've got the painter coming sometime next week...and we've got someone remeasuring the windows in the kitchen for the shutters (I guess their philosophy is measure twice, cut once). ;)

Just the joys of home ownership, I guess...

Oh yeah, and we have a crapload of packing left to do. We also found out that we have to pay taxes on Tuesday...meep!

I hope that you and Josh have lots of happiness in your new pad.
P.S. I'm happy to have made you laugh with my email yesterday. I'm such a loser!!:P
