Thank you all immensely for the good juju. You are my miracle workers.

Our third offer was approved, and we close on October 3rd.

I'm scared. Of course I am scared. I am so scared.

There's a lot of work to do, the transition is going to be so hard because this place is so different from the house we have now, from anyplace I have ever lived, and finding out how and where we will fit into it is going to be rough.

But let me tell you, it is simply an amazing house. It's so beautiful. It's very white on the inside – the former owners were obviously afraid of bold colors – but that white is like a blank canvas. A big, naked canvas, just begging me to have my way with it. Architecturally it's got all kinds of interesting things I can work with. When I'm done with it, it will be simply amazing. Oh, my friends, oh, oh, oh. I never thought to have anything this wonderful!

I will tell you about all of its awesome features once we've closed, but not before. I'm too scared that something will go south to risk rhapsodizing about it. Way too scared. It's not perfect in every way, but there is a whole hell of a lot to adore.

Keep it crossed for us. The third. They moved the date up a week because they don't want to make another payment.

Two weeks. We're moving in two weeks. Oh, shit.

Edit: I actually should throw a huge shout-out to [livejournal.com profile] bat_cheva, who drove down the nigh-invisible side street on a whim and found the house, and brought us a flyer even though it was out of our price range, and bugged us to go look at it, because it is not even a mile from her house. Which is actually the coolest thing about all of this, really.

So, if this all goes as planned, I will live very close to my dad, and very, very close to my best friend. I told you. It's fucking awesome.

I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW!!! Like, a MILE from you! Which is so much the coolest part, and now I must make an edit, because I need to credit you with finding the damn thing for us in the first place.

You KNOW how awesome it will look once I get in there and throw some color around. Oh, yeah.

That wood molding is going to give me a little trouble. I've never color-coordinated a room with natural wood molding.

Yay for you, Naamah. You deserve this so much. I can't wait to see what you can do with those empty walls; white may fit anything, but murals can give a room a life of its own. But, good god, two weeks? I recommend luring friends over with the promise of food for packing hands. It may not be much, but we're pulling for you from Virginia, George the Betta and me.

The bwahahahaha joke's on someone else part is that we don't HAVE to move out of this house in a hurry, so I'm relatively not-stressed about the time frame.

Not after moving HERE in one weekend in the middle of summer. I'm STILL mad at my mom about that. That fucking sucked, oh my god.

I may not be able to swing murals; the walls are textured. But I can do COLOR, DAMMIT. COLOR.

If something makes this thing go south, the universe is going to answer to me. You deserve this 100 times over.

You want a Tarot reading from me, for free, to highlight possible other "unknowns" that might be out there? As a third party, maybe I can help you mentally multitask for all the possibilities, including the ones you haven't thought of yet.

Email me and we can even do one over the phone over this, perhaps? My email is in my userinfo...

Yay!

Buying a house is one of the most emotionally exhausting experiences I've ever been through. There's always that "What if something goes wrong?" in the back of your head. Especially if something has already gone wrong with another house, as has happened to you. I'm so glad you found the perfect home and I will keep thinking good thoughts that all will go smoothly with the packing, closing, and moving.

Good luck moving! (I just did it, and hopefully I won't have to do that again for a while. Next time I move, I want to be moving *back* into a house that I own!).

Good luck getting everything packed in two weeks! Wak! :-D
