So I’ve been really busy lately, and I haven’t had a chance to post about it yet, but our offer was accepted for the house!!!  Perhaps we offered to little because they accepted all of our terms!  But really we’re very happy because we offered $7,000 less than the asking price in addition to the $5,000 closing cost credit they were offering.  Also, we got them to run a 220 volt line for our electric dryer and give us an $800 credit for using our washer and dryer rather than having them buy one.  Since ours are pretty much brand new, we are very happy with that.  Our realtor didn’t really want us to try to get both the credit and the lower price because he didn’t think they’d accept, but we sort of overrode him and look how it came out!

You can see some pictures of the place on your snapfish account.

One of the reasons we were so busy was that this weekend we went to a 1st birthday party followed immediately by a 50th birthday party! Opposite ends of the spectrum there.

On a completely unrelated note, as an addendum to my post about coyotes at our new place, here is an article about airplanes being unable to land at O’Hare due to coyotes on the runway!

  1. I’m not sure which is my favorite part of your new place – it’s either the “weird area with closet” or the grand view from the master bedroom 😉 Seriously though, your new place looks so cool! It’s huge! Which is the baby’s room?
    And also, what’s up with the comment from the guy who’s bitter about snapfish?


  2. I deleted his comment. I think he must just have been a spammer looking for anybody mentioning snapfish so he could plug his company. The baby’s room will be the 2nd bedroom on the 1st floor.

    P.S. You forgot to leave your name, mystery person!
