Great googly moogly! :-D Settlement was extremely smooth and amicable. All is well, though we don't get to move in until the seller's kids get her moved down to GA in mid-to-late May. She's a really sweet elder lady. She and everybody we've worked with has been a complete pleasure! E-mail me (or call me) if you want to know more, and especially if you live in the NoVA/DC area and would like a recommendation of an OUTSTANDING realtor and/or mortgage broker.

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

In liturgical churches (like, say, Anglican ones), it's common practice to avoid the use of "Hallelujah" (Praise the Lord!), at least liturgically, during Lent. I'm not sure if I followed that practice myself this year or not, but it's probably safe to say that God didn't receive an overflowing of Hallelujahs from me this Lenten season.

Well, Lent is over.

Hallelujah! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

Praise our amazing God for the amazing, unanticipated, impossible yet real reversal of Resurrection! Praise God for this day - the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Another "liturgical church" thing is that Easter isn't just a day - it's a season. The 50 days from now until Pentecost is Easter Season. So let's keep on living in joyous celebration of Resurrection through this season - and beyond. Maybe it's cliche, but we're Easter people. He is risen. He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!

Trying again!

Here's a terrible picture of the house on which, as of this morning, we have a ratified contract! Yay! E-mail me if you want to check out the full listing, but it's in Herndon. Inspection is on Monday, and if that doesn't scare us away, we close on 27 April! The seller needs to live there for a few weeks after settlement, so we'll be moving the last week or two in May. We're actually a lot more hopeful and excited about this one than we were about the one that we backed out of in January.

:-D !!!


OK, I admit that this is not a very profound way to get back in the saddle after a month of blog fasting. (The correspondence with Lent is purely coincidental - except maybe I don't believe in coincidence.) However, this has gotta be said:


Second issue came out this week. It is SOOOOOO good! Only Joss Whedon could write such ridiculous dialogue for such beloved characters and totally, thoroughly, unquestionably pull it off. And the FX budget is unlimited! :-D

With the Easter season of new Life and renewal only three dark days away, this is one little early gift of resurrection I'm thoroughly thankful for.
