Yes, we're still alive...

Busy. Just very, very, busy.

We took a nice trip to Indiana for Thanksgiving. It was good to see all the family, many of which we haven't seen for a very long time. I'd post a picture, but I'm on the wrong computer for that. They're on David's laptop. I'll have to do it later.

I was surfing around on everyone's blogs this morning and it just hit me that we haven't announced yet that we've finally sold our house....mostly. We haven't closed on it yet; hopefully in the next couple of weeks. It's something we're very relieved about. It will be nice to not have to worry about it anymore. But I can't say that we've been terribly excited about it, because we're selling it for less than we bought it for. Much less, in our eyes. So it's exciting in a disappointing kind of way. But the sooner we can stop flushing our mortgage payment down the toilet, the sooner we can begin saving it for the next house. We'll just be relieved when it's all over with. That will be nice.

It's extremely cold here. I don't think it's gotten warmer than 25 all week. In fact, my thermometer's spent most of the week in the teens. Windchill got down to zero a few days ago. Our pond's completely frozen over. Brrr!

Glad you finally sold your house. It is disappointing that you didn't get what you paid for it but in Michigan right now your lucky to even sell a house. We may be in the same boat soon if Rob doesn't find steady work of some sort but God has put something in our path this week so we will keep praying that it works out for us otherwise we are on the road for somewhere...just don't know where that somewhere will be.

YEAH!!! We are so glad the house sold, just hope you didn't lose too much on it. Now you can fully close a chapter and begin a new one right? Looking forward to hanging out soon!

Love you guys,

Angie

PS: Did David's Dad have a chance to look at our DVD player?

Congrats on selling the house! Stay warm up there in the frozen tundra! You're practically Canadian now!
