The Maryland house goes to closing at 1630 EST today. Paperwork all signed, notarized, covered in our blood/sweat/aggravation, then overnighted to the title company. Two weeks of pure hell are about to end, no thanks to the money-lending vampires called mortgage lenders. Enough said, we'll be down to one house and, like one wife, that's enough for any guy!
"Life is like an hourglass, glued to the table." (from a song by Anna Nalick). Ours has been glued to our foreheads, so now we devolve ourselves downward into the trivalities of life, like watching a full-grown badger jaunting down the field with a ground squirrel in its mouth - wow. And turning on our sprinkler system for the first time since winter and hoping it works as advertised. Or, further reorganizing our garage so we find things! I love seeing all the free floor space - concrete never looked so sexy.
We breathe, just breathe, and move onward. Into a glorious sunny day. We're off to dig up 25 rose bushes being donated to us, then to our friends' home to share stories, eat good specially-prepared stuff Michele did up, and tomorrow take pix of their alpacas for posting on their biz' website. Maybe go fishing? And to ponder the decision we made to buy two or three of their alpacas for ourselves - time to introduce ourselves to them! Life just never gets boring around here... My best to all of you, my friends, and stay on-board this springtime for more neat happenings (and plz share yours with me).
