In preparation for putting our house on the market I decluttered a bit, which included taking some pictures down. That's a "modern Mona Lisa" print I've had for a while, and a sketch I got from Etsy.
Dash. I assume this was breakfast because he's wearing pajamas. Then again, you never know.
Mr. E and I drove back to Charleston for Round Two of house-hunting. It was an icy, snowy night. This is a screenshot from my phone showing the radar map.
We got bad news when we met with our realtor in the morning: Someone had made an offer on our favorite-so-far house, the one we were planning to make an offer on if we didn't see anything better. After looking at a few more places, grinding our teeth, and generally despairing, we made an offer on the same house that afternoon. We didn't have a great feeling and we were annoyed to get getting into a bidding war, but we thought it was the best we could do under the circumstances. I took this shot of the front hallway while we were filling out paperwork for the offer. (Long story short: We ended up getting the house!)
We looked at a few more places in the morning (since at this point we didn't know if our offer would be accepted), and then stopped at the West Virginia statehouse to look around before heading back home. It was nice to make the drive in the daylight for once.
The boys were well taken care of at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
