The new house is old. The same folks owned it for 58 years and took exceptional care of it. Still, she's fashionably mature. As in, I will need to use a match to light the stove in the kitchen. This thought makes me smile.
After the first deal didn't take, I sighed and told our wonderful realtor, "I would so love to live within walking distance of the school." (The first house wasn't).
The Universe replied, "Why didn't you just say so?" and promptly tapped on Mary's shoulder, giving her instructions to put out an inter-office voicemail to every agent at her company's many branches, alerting them to what we were looking for and where.
The house we are buying was not even on the market yet (apologies to any Clevelanders trying to sell their homes)! It is just around the corner from Riley's school. Next year Seth will go there too. Two-tenths of a mile we'll walk. I'll kiss them good-bye, and see them six hours later. Ahhh yeah...are you diggin on that? But wait....where was I?
One year ago we were living in Lynchburg, Va. We had no idea we'd be in Cleveland, but I was asking. Here we are, moving into a beautiful home in a great community with a school district committed to giving Riley the best education she is capable of. We're just getting started!What do you want that you've yet to ask for?
