We had a really odd adventure as far as closing on the house.
The initial offer was made in October of 2012.
We finally closed in September 2013.
Yeah, it took almost a full year.
Barely settled in at all, school had started, quite a few hiccups on the path to getting it… but we finally had it!
Redflare and I set up in the office (because the bedrooms weren’t set up yet and we were camping in the living room), popped some sparkling grape juice, and enjoyed the next Star Trek movie together.
With four kids it’s hard to sneak time alone together sometimes, but I think we manage it well enough. Probably appreciate each moment a little more because of it.
