The offer was accepted!

On Monday, right at 3:30 my cell phone rang.  I was teaching a class at Cedar Lakes Rug Camp.  My husband had driven me down and I thought he was calling me.  Instead, it was Tami, our realtor.  “They accepted your offer,” she said.

I didn’t hear much after that.  I was unable to talk to my husband for a few hours because he does not carry his cell phone with him.  It is in the car, but I have to try to catch him driving in order to call him.  He has since promised to keep the phone on him, but only time will tell if he follow through with that one.

We were dazed and amazed that it had happened that way.  We thought our offer had been rejected.  Now we have to figure out a way to make this work.

I am so grateful to my class this year.  Everyone was very supportive and excited for me.  They talked about how this would be an adventure.  Slowly they began to calm my nerves.  That group will never know just how important their words were.  Thank you.

If anyone from that camp took pictures of the classroom, can you send me one to post here?
