Mission accomplished!

I'm blogging from the Travis AFB "Guest Business Center." We found the house for us... We looked at it the first day we arrived (Tuesday). Nothing else we saw came close to it in terms of size, condition, or neighborhood. The only possible downside to this house is that it is not near the base. So the drive home could potentially take a while. Hey, it's California. What do you expect??

There are pictures of the house here. The kids will each have his/her own room. The yard/patio are AWESOME. And Brian won't have to do a lick of yard work; the owners will keep it up. Can I hear a hallelujah??

Today we are going to brave the rain that started last night and drive over to Napa. Then we are doing dinner tonight with Brian's friend-and-future-boss and her husband. We are going to try to meet up with Thumper and her hubby tomorrow night.

There are others waiting in line to use the PCs here, so I've gotta bug out. Hopefully I can fill you in on more later!

Update, 3:30 p.m.: The trip to Napa was very relaxing (at least for me... I didn't have to drive!!). The weather cleared before we arrived and it was just perfect for strolling the streets of historic downtown Napa. It will be a short trip there from the new house. There is a gorgeous Target there (at least it's gorgeous on the outside; I didn't go in.); it shouldn't take us more than 10-15 minutes in normal traffic to get there. There are a Home Depot, Office Depot, and Raley's grocery store all in that same shopping center. 20 minutes or so in the opposite direction is Six Flags Marine World. Not bad, huh?

Cool House, I know that is a load off of your mind...now for the moving.

Karen, it looks great! Congratulations. The lord provides wonderful blessings, especially when we least expect them.

Thumper said...

WOW! That's amazing! Our son has friends who live in the same area, and according to him (because, being 22, he knows all) the drive to the base, at least during the times Brian will be on the Interstate, isn't bad at all. Half an hour later getting there and an hour later coming home it would be a nightmare, but hospital hours make the commute decent.

I am going to be very disappointed if we don't hook up for dinner tomorrow!

Great house! I actually don't live that far from you (we're down in Benicia). Congratulations on your move. :)

I had to quit looking at the pictures of your new house -- the green-eyed monster crept in as I admired all those huge rooms and open spaces! Congrats on finding it so quickly!

Fab house! Fab yard! Fab find!! Say, with that lamppost in the backyard, you can pretend you live on the edge of the Narnian forest :) I'm so glad you guys have a house inked, and a great one at that. Yay!
