Thanks to my father-in-law and the beauty of powers of attorney (power of attorneys?, it is like Surgeons General, right?) Gabe and I are now the proud owners of a home in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
So, we currently own two houses. The Tampa house is “sold” but we don’t close on that house until the 30th. I don’t know if I should be thrilled or scared out of my mind. I guess I’ll stay happy and pray to the housing gods that the second closing goes as well as the first one did.
On a completely different, but equally exciting, note Claudia walked up to me, put a book in my lap and said “Read, please”. I am so glad that they like to read. I know that Gabe and I read a lot, Gabe’s Mom reads more than anyone else I know and my Mom is a library scientist but I’m still pleased that the kids got the love for book (so far anyway). The downside to that is that I had to read “Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you See?” three times in a row before I forced them to choose a different book.
