So, what would you do on the first day in over a week that you don't have to keep your house immaculately clean and pack up the kids and be out of the way for a few hours at a time wandering the mall or crashing in on generous friends so that realtors can tour potential buyers through a show case version of your normally more comfortable-looking home?
We ate a messy breakfast of eggs on toast, painted all afternoon, made treasure maps by staining watercolor paper with tea, and had a great big slumber party in the livingroom with pajamas and pillows and blankets and snacks!
Yes, snacks in the livingroom!
We watched Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium, a delightfully innocent film about the magic of childhood, believing in one's self, and believing in order to see. OK, those themes are a little tired and this film doesn't add much substance to them, but it sure was entertaining and even a little clever. The snacks were pretty great, too.
I'm happy to say we have a buyer and probably won't have to do any more house showings! Thank you for your prayers, everyone. So many of you have promised us your prayers and I know that you really have been offering them--I can tell by how well everything seems to be working out. Thank you! God bless you all!
Thank You, St Joseph!
