check the appraisal off the list. woohoo! i don't think this house has ever been so clean. we should take photos of it for later proof! now the waiting begins! we should hear something by the end of the week or after the weekend. then more waiting for the turning of bureaucratic wheels and what not. but after all the work of the last few weeks (months!), waiting sounds fine for now.
more regularly scheduled blogging (including two cute children) will return shortly. thanks for your patience.
