Holy cow!

Mercury really *is* out of retrograde!

We just got an offer on the house!!!!! Not great, not terrible. But it's been empty since January, and YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

I'm hopelessly behind here and at the WC journal, will catch up when time allows.

::fingers crossed::

*huge hugs*

I sooo wish we'd been able to spend more time talking, but at least I know that you're 'round these parts and that I don't have to wait two years for another opportunity!

Fantastic, Chris! I do hope it goes through and you can be quit of the old, to focus on the new.

You've hit the nail on the head, too. I really, really need to be shed of the old.

Sounds painful (and I want our Padawan in good health *grins*), but thank you... I'm going to kill this spacebarless computer soon.

Congratulations!! I know that you're ready to fully close that chapter of your life. Even though I'm sad that we never worked it out to meet while you were officially a NC resident. Summer swim league was fun again this year. :)

I'll be thinking good thoughts that the offer works its way quickly to full fledged sale.

If this thing closes, maybe we'll find time for lunch or dinner when I'm back through!!

That's wonderful news! Congratulations!

Brace yourself for when you catch up with the writercon. aadler's con report has set off a huge, albeit fairly civilized, kerfuffle... but he said some lovely things about you (with which I agree :), so I hope you get a chance to read it.

Nods. I saw... Am still processing, and thinking about how to respond. On the one hand, great-wonderful-amazing discussion. On the other hand, *horriffic* examples/assumptions. And I need more hands, 'cause on the other, a human being who I know well enough to know he's not *quite* the demon being assumed, and on yet another, a whole HUGE meta topic...

Extremism in *all* its forms bugs me, and so does othering, whether self-imposed or societally imposed. My soul wants balance and resolution, not strawmen and assumptions.

So, kinda stuck right now. Those in charge of programming are handling themselves well, and that's enough for now.

*smooches*

I hear there's a UK writers' convention movement afoot -- when I get settled, will go check in and see if they need help :-)
