Still Holding Our Breath(s)

All those idioms and sayings and expressions... edge of my seat, holding my breath, walking on eggshells, biting nails, pulling hair... they all apply to this last (hopefully) week of settlement or escrow. Now, I know and understand full well that owning a home will not make our lives simple or ensure endless glory and sunbeams, but I will be sprinkling stardust and beaming my own bright light when we are through this process.

The children are well.
Betty is in chica jail until she swears to give up her social calls.
Geoff has earned the Home Buyer's Medal of Honor.
Maria asks if the cats, Chango and Benjamin belong to the landlord's house or if they will come with us to the new house?
I need a shower, nap, and some kind of transfusion.

You can do it, yes you can. You can you can you can! You will be in your nest box soon. Then you will start the process of making it your very own, Califoria dream come true. I'm so happy for you and your family. I hope Betty isn't upset over leaving all her neighborhood friends he he he.

May I recommend a transfusion of tequila? Red wine?

That might do the trick!
