So, dear friends and casual observers, we may get the house with the big back yard and the car port and the awesome fireplace after all.
So, what can I say?
We have a verbal agreement in place and they’re formalizing their counter offer and I, I am back to considering what color we’re going to paint the front door.
The house is red brick with white trim. I want to paint the door a sunflower gold and then plant black-eyed Susans or some similar flower in the front.
I am scared to death about how we’re going to afford this and whether we’ll be sitting around all winter in fourteen layers of afghan slowly burning our furniture to keep warm. But, on the other hand, the yard is big enough for a garden, so when we run out of oil and revert to cannibalism, I’ll have some nice greens to eat with my neighbor.
