We're moving again.

This time, it's a good thing. No, actually, a GREAT thing.

Through a confluence of events, a wonderful home has fallen into our laps. We are already crazy in love with it. It is on one of my favorite streets in our little town, we'll have lots of friends close by, it's super close to my son's school (and that means when my daughter starts kindergarten, we'll be in that school's boundaries, which we aren't now), it is bigger than the place we're in now and has a fabulous floor plan, and...wait for it...it has a POOL!!!

Suffice it to say, we are all giddy and thrilled. Not about the actual moving part, that sucks big, hairy donkey balls (or so I hear), but whatever. I have a couple of months before we are outta here, and I'm going to purge, purge, purge for the next weeks (except for the boatload of stuff I have to keep for home staging).

The past week has been awesome in so many ways...I won a Tootsie DVD from my bloggy crush Neil, this post of mine got a mention in the Houston Chronical and a nod from kirtsy, Shania from Craving Silence is sending me some books to read, and I won a shower timer from Crunchy Domestic Goddess.

Oh, and yeah...financially things are rocking. Well, they will be in the future...but things are definitely looking up.

I'm going with our luck is turning around here. Screw it, I'm becoming an optimist from this day forward.


  1. Yeah! That sounds like such a positive step for your guys. Good luck on the packing and purging. I don't think I ever want to move again and it has been over three years since the last time.

  2. “our luck is turning around here “… cue the ominous, fate-tempting music…. (Really, good for you!!)

  3. so happy for ya !!

  4. Wow, what an awesome, positive post! Congratulations, the new digs sound terrific!

  5. Well, hallelujiah girlfriend! Praise be and all that jazz.

    Can't wait to see pictures! I know what a "house" person you are and I understand it completely.


    Have I mentioned I'm excited for you?! :D

    P.S. Obama is meeting at Hilary's tonight, what do you think THAT means? I dread thinking about it.

  6. I'm so glad things are going well!

    Congrats on the Houston Chronicle pickup!!

  7. Good luck!!!

    I'm in Ireland right now, and I KNOW I'll have itchy feet when I get back to Florida next month - hope the new house is all you dreamed and more :)

  8. Yeah for you!!!!

    I've given up on being an optomist. Every time I try, things turn to crap. Like that small financial upswing that allowed me to buy my camera? Yeah, well the financial gods have decided to kick me in the teeth for that one Grrrrr....

    Anyways, congrats on the new house and all of the goodness going on :)

  9. I love to hear good news from deserving people.

  10. OH, I am so excited for you! It's about damn time it all turned around.

    It's true about the hairy donkey balls, but fortunately, it doesn't last long (I know that most of us have thought THAT in our lives. Sigh.)

  11. What wonderful news! Here's to a fabulous future!


Brilliant observations:
