I did write a post about meeting with a realtor, but it was so boring that I couldn't bear to publish it. Suffice it to say we're in the process of working with a loan officer to see if we can get a mortgage in the first place, then we'll really be in on our way.
In other news, it's been like wild kingdom around here. We had our second sighting of a fox across the street from our house the other night while out walking the dogs. It was a real surprise given that our neighborhood is in the middle of town, but a small herd of deer live one street down so I guess we shouldn't be but so surprised. Then, the night after the fox sighting, Ginger caught a opossum in our backyard! Gregg dragged her away from it and made her come in the house, leaving the poor thing lying in the backyard, looking dead. It was apparently "playing opossum", though, because the next morning it was gone. Thank goodness. But seriously, what gives with all the animal sightings? We'd be happy to see a fox except that they can carry rabies, and so they're better off in the country. And the dogs go crazy when they see something so unusual!
Speaking of the dogs, they've been sad when I leave for work each morning. We all enjoyed the lazy days of summer together and I'm sure they wonder why I choose to leave every day, again. They know nothing of the concept of "work".
