I just can't believe it...

Yesterday, I boarded a plane to fly to San Antonio to meet Jonathan who is there for a work conference.  The flight was on time, baggage claim was easy, and the taxi ride was pleasant.  Our hotel?  Um, well they upgraded us to a two bedroom suite...not that we need it.  Oh, and they have a free breakfast.  I can stop there.  Ok, so it's not that bad and hey, it's free (paid for by Jonathan's company).  But I do have a serious issue... The hotel does not have wifi!!!  Are you kidding me? In this day and age???  In our entire suite there is only ONE internet connection in the "living room" at the desk.  Seriously?  Jonathan and I both need the internet in the evenings. (OK, so I don't need the internet like he does.)  And I like to relax on the couch when I'm online!  Thankfully my wonderful hubby found a weak wifi signal from the Days Inn across the street for me to hook up to.  Pretty sad that I have to use another hotel's internet service!

We went out to dinner last night and had some delicious Texas barbeque at The County Line!  Yum!  The Riverwalk is beautiful and I can't wait to head over there this afternoon to get some shopping in! (Of course it and the mall are connected to the original hotel we were booked in...maybe it would have made shopping just too easy for me...)  And we literally walk past the Alamo to get to the Riverwalk from our hotel.  Pretty cool huh?

Here's our crazy news!  Yesterday on my way to the airport, our realtor called and yes, the couple had accepted our counter offer on our house.  Last night when I got to the hotel, Jonathan and I signed the papers and faxed them back!  Can you believe we have a contract on our house??  It was barely on the market for two weeks.  I'm in absolute shock and am not prepared to move yet!  I was expecting a few months of being on the market.  Well, this couple wants to close by the end of this month!  AAHHH!  We haven't even started looking at houses!  I know it will all work out, because God's hand is in this.  But to say that I'm not worried that we will be homeless in the process would be an understatement!  But we are so excited!!!  I'm going to do some internet searching to find a list of houses we want to go through as soon as we are back in town!  I know the right house is out there...

I better start my internet searching.  The sunshine and high 60's outside is calling my name!

I am so happy for y'all that your house sold so quickly - what a blessing! Glad you're enjoying TX. Don't say y'all are homeless - um...we are in the heart of Lexington just minutes from Nichlasville and Manowar and have an incredible Futon calling your name! Seriously - it wouldn't be ideal but it would work short term and the door is always open. Heck - we'll even leave the light on for ya.

That is so amazing Abby! I'm super excited for you, especially with the horror stories I hear about real estate in the U.S. God definitely has a wonderful home on your horizon :-D

Glad you're enjoying San Antonio too... sigh... reminds me of last Spring :-D
