It's official!  We have finally sold our home!  (Happy dance!!)  It has never felt so good to say "We are no longer home owners!"


For those of you new to the blog, we have been living in what I have termed "the situation".  We both lost jobs, had to move a state away to keep jobs and have been balancing mortgage and rent for a year and a half!  But no more!!

We closed on the house yesterday!  I have been dying to tell you guys but due to the public nature of the internet - didn't want to say anything until I knew it was closed!  So this may explain one of my sudden absences for a week (those of you who follow in twitter may remember all my - "posting from Starbucks" tweets) and why I am having a massive yard sale. 

My yard sale starts in about 45 minutes so I have to run - but I wanted to share the good news with you guys! 

Whoohoo!!  (I am so excited I could burst!!)

That's great! We ended up putting renters in ours and have no idea when we will be able to get out from under it. Hope you do great with the yard sale!
