In the Land of Promise

Well, we're here. We had a good trip down and we're still speaking to each other. The boys were very silly. In fact, sillier than I have ever seen. The favorite words of the trip were: "figlet" and "firkin." We have decided that if we get a cat, we are going to name it "figlet." And we discovered that a firkin is equivalent to nine gallons. We played madlibs and started memorizing John 14.

We set out yesterday morning to go househunting with our realtor Ray. By the way, Ray is a good old boy to beat ALL good old boys. Oh my WORD. He is the epitome of the Southern guy. So we drove around Henry County in his vehicle. We drove to the two houses that were near each other in Stockbridge first- ones we found on the internet and had our eyes on from afar. We reeeeally liked them. I'll spare you the details...and we are discussing the pros and cons of them right now and it's driving me cah-razy. There were others that had good points but none that were the big home runs that the first two seemed to be.

The 'rents have arrived ( Dave and Pat) and we are eager to show them the houses and get their opinion. We are off to see Ray again this morning and will be visiting the two Stockbridge houses again. The excitement is building!

What can beat being silly on your way south, inventing words and experiencing good ol' boys?!

ooohh, you sound like you're having fun, which makes me so happy for you. Remember my "brad and claire sitcom" idea from way back when? This car ride could definitely be an episode...

Again...I'd watch!
