22 July 2010: A whole lotta day

3.30pm: call received from Harper’s paediatrician indicating that her blood results were perfect. PERFECT! Sure, she has some high allergic cells, but we knew that right? And best result? She is NOT a coeliac. That was something I was worried about. This? This is GOOD news.

4.30pm: I officially finished work. Sure, I have to go in for a few hours next week and then a few more hours for a handover the week after that. But…mostly finished. Just call me stay at home Mama. Go on. This? This sounds just about as LOVELY as anything has in a long time.
5.05pm: We received a call from a real estate agent saying “Congratulations! The place is yours!” While this is still VERY new, and all still just under contract, I can say this: We had an offer accepted on a house. IN THE COUNTRY. In a town of 150 people. That’s right, we are moving to the freaking country and leaving this all behind. And that? That is the most EXCITING thing that has EVER happened to me. Let alone our little family.

More details to follow (I promise!)…but squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
