Positive thinking.

My little pep talk to myself worked this morning! Olivia's having a great day and we bought a house! Yippee! We are just waiting for the paperwork to come through and then we'll go from, picking carpet, picking counter tops, etc...
We had decided to quit being stubborn and accept their ridiculous counter-offer. We were asking for some significant upgrades that would have actually brought the price down to where we wanted it if we hadn't asked for the upgrades. The kicker of it all...our wonderful realtor talked them down a whole $1400! SOLD! What a pleasant surprise. We told her we were willing to pay full price, but she wouldn't have it!
Now just to sell our house in Macomb...we did have a showing this afternoon. Maybe there's a check sitting on the table ;o)
Once it becomes a little more "official," I'll be sure to post a picture a some more details. I wouldn't want you to get all excited and then be disappointed if something were to go wrong.
Oh, I almost forgot...the kids will go to the same grade school (aka: Grandma's school) as I did (Brooklyn will even have the same Kindergarten random is that!)

Congratulations on your new house. I am certain you will sell your home in Macomb quickly. I know Olivia will improve quickly so she can see her new house and pick out her new room.

Dear Julie,
I am so happy for you ALL!!!! I am sad though that I am not there anymore to have your kids when they get to 4th grade!!!! Maybe Jeremy will let me come back just to teach them when they get there! :) And, too bad we didn't decide to stay in Dunlap...I think our "Jacks" would have a lot in common, not only their b-days! My Jack is a baseball nut too!
I just know that the prayers are working for you and that Olivia will soon be home to enjoy your new home with you. I think about you and pray for you everyday! (even though I don't always comment)Keep the faith!
