1. Took the family to Whale’s Tail Park again, where Nathan tried to mack on an octopus. What can I say? Babies making (inter-species) babies!
2. Spent a glorious afternoon walking around Greenlake with the lovely Lisa, Branan and Cooper family.
3. During the walk, received a call from our agent who wanted to give us the news that our offer had not only been accepted, but that the seller decided lower the price down by seven thousand dollars and agreed to cover the closing costs.
4. High-tailed it to the real estate office and signed the papers to our new home.
We close on May 11th and our lease here runs out on the 31st. We have those two weeks to move our hovel into a grand, semi-spacious abode with granite countertops, bamboo flooring, and stainless steel appliances.
There’s this rush of knowing that by the summer, we’ll be in a new place that needs no fixing or upping. There will be no parking dramas. Best yet, we will have no downstairs neighbors battering a bat into the floor. We will not hear the thuds below our feet that warn: keep it down, keep it down, keep it down.
