We signed the contracts tonight. Closing is planned for May 12th.

Lynson and I are buying a house.

I'm still a bit shell-shocked; everything has moved so quickly. However, this was too good an opportunity to pass up. It's not every day you get a chance at a 5-bedroom 3-bath two-story in a good neighborhood, hardwood floors, big backyard, etc, for right at $150K, AND have homeowners who are willing to do whatever they need to to help you get into the house.

Of course, it helps that we've know the owners for 7 years or so and are good friends;).

There's an apartment over the garage which has it's own entrance and such that we've already offered to rent to a friend looking to better her situation. We CAN afford the house without her renting, but the first year would be a bit tight, budget-wise, at least till Sept and Lynson got his yearly raise. It also helps that the plumbing company is going into the busy season which means 50-60 hour work weeks for him.

So, provided nothing falls through before closing (EVERYONE cross your fingers and knock on wood), we're looking at moving in starying the 21st of May. Maybe earlier, depending on if we can close earlier or not.

42) Not too long after my intial move to Memphis, I decided on a whim to color my hair. I picked out this great black cherry, burgandy color.

It came out purple...which incidentally, I loved:) I kept it that way for a few years, though each time I re-colored, it was more red and less purple, but s'okay.

Taking a chance here, since I haven't written ANYTHING in way too long. And I'm a bit intimidated, since some of you guys are pretty darn good writers. But I figured, why not give it a shot:)

The first 10 people to comment on this post get to request a drabble (real drabble: 100 words exactly) from you. In return, they can post this in their journal and write a drabble for you. Post all fandoms you're willing to write for. (this is optional; you don't HAVE to do it in return, but it would be pretty spiffy if you did)

Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, or pretty much anything they want, unless the author has previously mentioned that they will not write it. They comment with what they want, and you write drabbles and post it in your LiveJournal.

Fandoms I may be able to write in, hopefully without causing pain are: Harry Potter, Stargate (SG1 or Atlantis), new Battlestar Galactica, new Dr. Who, CSI, and Vampire Hunter D. (yeah, it's quite the random sampling)

HAVE to share this drabble written for me by [livejournal.com profile] sandykidd in response to the previously posted challenge. Hugs to her for taking time out of her day to make me laugh:)!

If you're at all a DS9 fan, it should give a chuckle.


After several rounds of tests, Kira snapped. “Do you believe me, now?”

Doctor Bashir shook his head in bemusement. “I see it, but I still don’t believe it.”

The petite Bajoran yanked him off the floor by his shirt-front. “Doctor, I swear I will shove you out the nearest airlock if you ever tell anyone about this.”

She wasn’t lying, he knew, but he couldn’t help chuckling. “How did Odo get in there, anyway?”

“Don’t. Ask.” Her tone was icy, yet spoke volumes. “Well? Can you…remove him?”

“Actually, I think he’ll emerge on his own. In about nine months.”
