With my chickies!
Wow! If I could describe my feelings right now, this is what they would be: YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yipeeeeeeee!!!!!!!! Boohooo!!!! Why such dramatic feelings? Well, our family has had an offer on a house for awhile. It was a short sale, meaning that once the family had accepted our offer, we would have to wait for the bank to accept our offer. And wait we did! About two and a half months we had waited when we received communication from the bank. They were asking for a signature on some paper. Oh! We thought. They're actually doing something! Hmmm, they might accept soon! But a month later and nothing further had happened. We joked that the bank has a stack of work to do and once they've done something on a paper, it goes to the bottom of the pile. So, we waited some more and got prepared for a long while of more waiting. In fact, just today my mom sent an email to a friend saying that we'll be waiting awhile for the bank to do something. However, she just got proven wrong. At 6-ish we got a phone call from my aunt/our family's real estate agent saying that our offer had been accepted. Moreover, the closing date on the house was the 24th- of April!!! Well, she said she'd try to get that changed to a later date but still!!! So very soon we are moving to the country! We will get chickens (yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), maybe goats, have a BIG garden, and more. We're going to rent the house we live in now, and I'm glad because I'd be a little too sad if we sold it. It's the house that I've lived in all my life. Well, what more can I say? Wow. It's amazing what just one phone call can do.

Congrats Fluffballs! The country, chickens, fresh air, garden, and livestock, sure beats the city or urban life. I'm sure the waiting sucked. Thats never been 1 of my strong points. I hate waiting. You got a lot to look forward to now. Good luck!
