Home Sweet Home!

We closed on the house yesterday! I was a little afraid to blog any updates - worried I'd jinx the process - but it finally happened. No rest for the weary, though, as I had to hurry home and gather up my things to head to work. And now I need to get in a few hours' nap before taking Tuck to a dermatology appointment to see if we can work out some of his skin allergy issues.

There is a New York Times article right here that actually explains very well what made our process so difficult. I was prompted for a login (which is free) this morning trying to access it, and if I weren't so tired and badly in need of sleep I'd excerpt the pertinent part here(maybe later). Anyway, I've had a login with NYT for years and it's worth it for the read.

In the meantime, I think I'll just distract you with this clip I found on Fail Blog:



I laughed 'til I cried.

Congrates on your closing. We were all wondering at CWS why we hadn't heard any updates. I loved the clip.
