Nervous/excited

Right. Rather than bore you with the details of my disgusting and slimy head cold, let's talk about something nice. Well, for me, anyway...

We have made an offer on a house. And it has been accepted. Our only clause was that a structural engineer be brought in to have a look at a crack on one of the upstairs walls before we sign. So I am trying very, VERY hard not to get excited about anything until his report comes in (today or tomorrow), but I am walking around with butterflies in my stomach.

It is a wonderful house. TSC was sold on it because it has loads of garage and working space, and I was won over by the beautiful veggie garden and the fact that it's like something out of Anne of Green Gables. And the owners are nice. And the rooms are huge. And it has a fireplace. And, and, and...

Please, if you're the type who doesn't mind being asked, say a little prayer that (God willing) everything works out fine!

So super exciting, holding thumbs and toes for you! I think I asked you yesterday, but the comment didn't save (was having blogger problems). If you don't mind me asking, are you a journalist for a magazine or a newspaper? I was reading your post where you say you do PR and then your own business, but I seemed to think you were a journalist as well. Just curious. :)

That's so cool that you're doing journalism, must be hard work but rewarding! Your surname isn't Rothbart by any chance?
