Day 550: The - Big - NEWS!!!
Thursday, August 21, 2014
We've been sitting on this for the better part of two months. Practically drove ourselves - and each other - nutz. So sure after that bitter, bitter experience in February that this, too, would fall through, and so reluctant to say anything. Superstitious? Not so's you'd notice. But we were so afraid we'd jinx everything.
But today, today was the day. It's over. It's done. Papers signed, money and keys exchanged. On their part elation and excitement. On our part elation and excitement. For me, a tremendous sense of relief - and for Himself too, along with a few tears.
He's spent 35 years in the house he designed.
It's the end of an era - and a brand-new beginning for us both.
