…was the question my dear friend Elizabeth posed to me last night. In the time that we “kibbutzed” together, we really enjoyed it. The shared responsibilities, the freedom we had individually to run out without the kids while the other watched them, the camaraderie. So Elizabeth’s idea was to have us move back in her house and she’d even give us more space–kick the kids out of the playroom. πŸ˜‰ After all, they have a trampoline, right? And trampolining in the wet winter weather could be called ‘water aerobics,’ no? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜†

Of course the fact that she and her family are relocating to Istanbul in the next several months didn’t seem to matter, and when I brought it up, the response was a bit nonchalant. πŸ˜‰

The fact is that I *do* have moments of “ohmyword…what have we DONE?” Elizabeth says I need to go with that feeling and drive back down I-75 when it comes. And then there are moments of complete peace and excitement. Fortunately, we *know* we made the right decision and the peaceful moments outweigh the few panicked ones I’ve had. :::phew!:::

And in that vein, we put an offer in on a house today. We toured it in October and liked it, and we toured it again today–this time with the eyes of people who might one day live there. And we liked what we saw enough to make an offer. As of this writing, we haven’t heard anything back, but the seller’s agent was incommunicado today, so we’ll probably hear a yea or nay tomorrow. Or maybe a counter-offer. But at this moment, we’re completely peaceful about our offer and the potential of buying that house, and that tells us what we need to know. So I’ll post when we know something and when we have a contract and the house has made it through inspection, I’ll put photos up in my Flickr account. Until then, though, mystery must prevail. πŸ˜‰

So sorry, Elizabeth…we’re not coming back down for a few months. And then only to visit. So get ready for some house-guests, babe! πŸ˜†.
