"In contract." Music to my ears.

Well, our current house has been on the market for a couple of weeks now. Everyone that comes inside says it shows like a model, but no one has anted up the cash yet. Fingers crossed, please-o-please-o-please buy it! I don't want to have to rent it out.

Meanwhile, at the new house -- casa de termites I'm calling it -- the contractors have free run of the place. The electrician has already been there, cleaning up a few things and the roofer has been up on top, spackling all our old asbestos roof tiles. Now the termite guys are literally tearing the walls down. They've already gassed the dry wood termites, and now they're following the termites through the walls, trying to find all the damage they may have done. Anyone know a good stucco guy? After they get out, I've got to get the plumber and the heater guy in to finish up and then we may get to move in.

So now we have no idea where we're going to have Christmas! We can't have it here in the "shows like a model" museum. Our new house is incredibly cold and empty, and we may not be moved in by then. So we may go down to Lori's brother's house and just spend Xmas eve there.
