Item 1: invitations are going to be later than planned. Why? Because the Tuckfield family had their once-every-fifteen-year entire-family flu epidemic over the weekend (and as a bonus, we included Ben in the general malaise). It was fast (if messy) but it definitely derailed our plans to print all the invitations and get them in the mail this morning! The new plan is to do them this evening after work and hopefully get them out tomorrow. So if your invitation is later than expected...don't worry, they really will go out.
Item 2: we heard from the real estate agent about our house today: it appears that some extra work was being done on the title to help the seller with her deceased father's estate (legal stuff that I think I'll have to have explained to me again before I really understand clearly), which is why closing has been put off. The work is almost done, however, and closing should be very soon. In the process, however, the tenants living in the house have found a new place to live and are expecting to be moved out by the first of November.
It's funny - at the beginning of last week I would've been overjoyed at this, but after the opportunity came up to live by Leah and Benjamin for a few months, now it's a little bittersweet. Until we start the process of moving in, of course. If the house is clear by the beginning of November, that'll allow us to get all our new things situated (what fun!), get things painted, and move Ben's stuff out of his parent's garage well before the wedding (they'll be happy about that!) so that when we get married we can just go home and not be in between homes for a while. I know that once we get going on the house I'll be really excited, but right at this moment part of me is just a touch sad that we won't be by Leah for a bit. Ah well. God has had this whole thing planned perfectly right from the beginning and it's very good.
