House update and old friends
Well, in a bizarre twist of fate we actually have a contract for a house, all signed and everything. The house we're buying is actually the first house we put an offer on; apparently the fellow was rather surprised we walked after his initial counteroffer, so we put in another offer on it. We ended up paying about a thousand more than we wanted to, but getting the fridge, washer, and dryer, so whatever. This was our first-choice house, so it's nice to have a signed contract for it. Now about that job…
Also, I meant to mention it last week and forgot to. As Jen, Mom and I were in line to get our boarding passes headed from Louisville to Austin, we bumped into Sam, an old college classmate and friend. He was on his way to San Francisco to spend the weekend with his girlfriend; we somehow both ended up on the same flight from Louisville to Dallas. Very cool to see and talk to him again; it's been a long time since I saw any of that group (and of them, I suspect Sam might be the only one really still willing to talk to us).
