Just a Quickie (Not a Nooner)

As you all know, Hubster and I have been trying to get a house in Idyllwild since we were last there. Many people, including ourselves, believed that I wasn't really meant to cut a CD or even play in the concert; rather, we were put there to find our dream home, the home that we would grow old in. As you also know, we found that house and have been waiting and negotiating to get it. We got the phone call yesterday from the realtor:


(sorry about yelling - I'm a little excited)

I've never seen Hubster so happy about moving. He's usually blase about houses, but he loves this one and loves the area. We're looking forward to it, but I'll miss San Francisco and my family (I'm a born and bred Bay Arean - Northern California is my home, and if you told me that I would be living in SoCal, I would have said you were full of shit). At least we're not all that far away and can fly up here in an hour or drive up in eight hours. Besides, Disneyland is less than two hours from our new home. I can deal with that.

In order to celebrate, I'm having another sale - a "We Got The House!" sale. Everything in the shop will be 20% off, and the sale will run from next Monday through Wednesday (October 27th - 29th). This time, I'm playing it smart - all orders will be filled the following week.

Anyway, that's all I wanted to say. Now I'm going to continue doing the happy dance. :)

Congratulations! I, too, have found a house I want to grow old in, though DH isn't totally convinced.

Heheheheheh. Snow. (Don't mind while this Rocky-Mountain-raised Canuck giggles just a little, eh? All the while sending you happy safe-driving, no-frostbitten-toes thoughts, of course.)
