Okay, ladies (and gents), I'll be off the boards for a while because we closed on the house today! Wasn't sure if it was going to happen b/c our area was in a FEMA-declared disaster area from Hurricane Irene, but there was very minimal damage to the interior and exterior. We were lucky.
It was a very, very long summer having to move into 3 different temp homes, but we finally have a permanent home (until the next relocation).
It'll take me a while to get us all set, so stay well and see you soon!
