Gulp

Let me catch you up on things:  We saw a house.  We liked it a lot.  Byron's dad came to town.  He liked it a lot too.  It was a good price.  We offered.  We got it.  We are in shock.

On top of the whirlwind of getting everything in order to buy a new house, we also need to get our little yellow house ready to sell . . . the list making has begun!

As for the new place, it's a terrific home that will be right for all of us.  The space is much bigger than our current home (but let's be honest, that isn't saying much), and it has the makings for a 1,000-square-foot suite downstairs for Byron's dad.  It was built in 1960 and is a ranch-style house.  It has some cool modern elements to it, but it also needs some love and many updates.  That said, it's totally livable, in a nice Seattle neighborhood (Olympic Manor), and it even has a great view of the Olympics and the Sound.  I think we'll be very happy in it for a long while.
