The Waiting Game (Or: Somebody PLEASE Buy Our House!)

So you guys! They accepted our offer on the house we love! They didn't even counter offer, despite the fact that we offered a SIGNIFICANTLY smaller amount than they were asking. So now we just have to sell our house (minor detail!) and then we can move in! Yay!
I know this is really a pipe dream, but I'm hoping we can at least spend the last few days of December moving in so that we can ring in the New Year in our new house! Our festive celebrations will of course consist largely of stripping some truly horrific goose patterned wallpaper out of several rooms, but still.
I haven't yet figured out how to show you a picture of the house without basically posting our address for all to see, but I'll try to take some pictures on the digital to show you eventually. Suffice it to say- a ranch. Green-ish blue siding and shutters. Pine trees in backyard. White picket fence. Five bedrooms! Three bathrooms! Basement! A dining room!
I'm so happy!

Congrats on them accepting your offer! NOW let's hope you sell that house fast, fast, fast!
Bury a St. Joseph and say a little prayer.

Wow, that is great on the buying of a new house! It sounds nice and big. I'm slightly jealous (we're running out of room here and only have one kid). I hope that your house sells quickly.

More bedrooms for more kids! Whee!!!

I'm just teasing, or not. You decide which.

Congratulations on the new house!

That is so awesome. Wallpaper is so non-awesome.

I'll send a little extra prayer that your house sells quickly. The new one sounds perfect for you!
