Barring unforeseeable catastrophes, it looks like we've sold the old homestead today. We have a great offer and we're going to accept it. We also saw yesterday a lovely house on a wonderful block on St. Paul Street in the oh-so-trendy Charles Village section of Baltimore, near a fabulous market, a new Gucci Giant grocery, a new YMCA, a new B&N that caters to academics, and our favorite Thai restaurant, aptly named Thai Restaurant. Of course if we buy this house we won't be able to afford eating out, unless I pawn my library of books, CDs, and DVDs at Normal's. Also nearby? Johns Hopkins University, The BMA, and Pete's Grille. And, I can hop the number 8 bus to work every day and maintain my joyously carless existence.
The street number of this house combines Cha's and my lucky numbers. Cross your fingers for us anyway!
