Things that make me happy today

Things that make me happy today:

1. We found renters! And not just any renters, but people that we trust and who we know will take care of the little yellow house. (does that mean I have to transfer this blog to them?) If you haven't heard, we move in to our new house in Franklin on March 14. Sean and I were beginning to worry that we'd have to pay for two houses. Then at the last minute, we found 3 eager tennants who were all ready to move in. Sean did a fantastic job of managing the online ads, and for 2 months he was dedicated to updating Craig's List on a DAILY (sometimes twice-daily) basis. For a while we thoguht that no one would ever be interested in moving into this place, and then all of a sudden it just came together. We had to turn 2 people away, and let me tell you...It's a bizarre feeling to be in charge of someone's future. I didn't much like it. It was kind of like firing someone (which, by the way, I've never had to do). Since Sean is the expert in that arena, I let him make the calls.

2. I have the best husband ever.

3. In just 2 weeks, I'll be free from having to hear those damn dogs barking outside my house.

4. My orchid is blooming again! I was able to keep it alive long enough to see new blooms. They are smaller than the original blooms, but hey -- I'll take them. This orchid was a gift from Tom & Ann (my New Jersey in-laws) from when I had my surgery almost a year ago. HA! Remember that? Those were some crazy times. I can't believe that giant 2 liter cyst was living inside me. Ewwwww....

5. I just had 3 cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

6. The sun is out in full force today and it's melting the snow.

All right for the renters! We're glad you found someone so that we don't have to move back to Nashville just to rent your house. Yeah, we're that good of friends.

We hope to come check out your new house soon. We'll wait until after you move in.

All this "we" talk makes me feel weird...
