We Really Did It

The past week is blurring into history, and I’m sure I’ve already lost a few good stories. But the upshot is that we live in Knoxville now. We’re in a perfectly serviceable temporary apartment and are hard on the hunt for the best restaurants.

I’m having my perfect kind of cozy evening. Alden is sleeping in a play yard a few feet away from me. Damon’s on one couch reading The Watchmen. My mom is on the other reading a novel. I’m at the dining room table with the laptop. No one is more than 15 feet away from me and we each have a bowl of rocky road with marshmallow topping by our sides. Damon wanted Magic Shell but he mistakenly put it in the refrigerator last night. I’ll let you guess what happens then.

I am tired, but not exhausted. I am disoriented, but not lost.

Tonight we told our realtor we want to make an offer on one of the houses that’s been on our short list for a while now. As soon as we are in contract I’ll post photos. We’re doing another walk through tomorrow after I finish work and we’ll write up the official offer then. Yay!

I’m excited to be back in the South. And that’s most relevant to some folks reading here in that we will be in Atlanta the weekend of Nov. 7. Shall we?
