we've lost our damn minds

Free at last from our mortgage in CT one would think we would rest on our laurels, at least momentarily. One would think. No, not us. Steve and Kerri must just feel better when we have a mortgage payment because as of this morning we have an accepted offer on a new home, not too far from where we are staying now, and it's going to be amazing.

NEW HOUSE. It's 3 beds, 2.5 baths, with a beautifully finished lower level and a sprawling park like backyard. In time it needs a new kitchen and updates to the main level baths. It needs a little love, but the bones are strong and wonderful and OH MY GOD! We have a house.

Here she is.
