One Step Closer ... One Premonition Come True

When we were visiting Mom in Omaha and looking for homes, Mom said that things would change in three weeks. That was seventeen days ago. Today we received an offer on the house. Way to go Mom! Makes me want to sing:

We made a counter-offer that is more formality than anything. If all goes well, and that's a big if, we will be closing escrow on the 2nd of June and we'll be moved sometime during the third week of June. (I will probably be in Omaha before our stuff.)

Thank you to all that have been praying for us to get an offer. Now it is time to shift your target from getting an offer to closing escrow. There have been a lot of incidences of people falling out of escrow so the house isn't sold quite yet. Your prayers (and crossed fingers and good thoughts) are still needed.

It would also be appreciated if you prayed for the Wife getting a job offer. We need all the moral support we can get.


  1. Wow! Very cool. Will be sending all the best juju I can on the other fronts as well! :)

  2. GH: Thanks! We need all the juju we can get.

  3. whoohoo, that is a step in the right direction. And you said burying the St. Joseph statue beneath the for sale sign wouldn't work. HA!

  4. Yay!

    It's about time.
    All appropriate limbs crossed and a message sent above.

  5. Seriously twisted video. I like it a lot.

    I'm trying to contain myself until actual papers are signed on the house.

    Then, I will party like ... a hand puppet on YouTube.

  6. MoH: I don't remember saying it wouldn't work but, if I did, I stand corrected.

    JaG: Thanks! Let's hope this all works. The waiting is deadly.

    Wife: I picked the video out just for you. I thought you would like it.

  7. I don't pray but best luck with it anyway.
