I’ll admit, back when I first started this 365 Project, I wondered how far I would get. 60 days? 3 months? Maybe, just maybe 6 months? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not usually the type to start something that I don’t finish. In fact, I tend to be the type that will see something through to the finish, even if it nearly kills me. Let’s just say I have a highly overdeveloped, and downright irrational fear of failure. Just the thought of failing sends me into a panicked frenzy.

So tonight, as I log in to blog my 300th consective post, I have to say, I’m pretty proud of my accomplishment so far. Granted, not every entry has been Pulitzer Prize worthy, but there has been something written every single day, and that, I am proud of.

Today’s blog is even a little sweeter because Steven and I got word on the house we bid on earlier this week. The sellers accepted our offer, and we got to sign the papers on our house today!!! Woohoo!!!

We are still several weeks from closing, but everything seems to finally be moving in the right direction for us. We cannot wait to move in and finally unpack all the boxes that have been cluttering up this rental house for the past 10 months. Finally, we will be able to say goodbye to the leaky basement, and to install a dog door so Electra can come and go as she pleases instead of harassing us to let her out every five minutes so she can rid the yard of rabbits and squirrels. And boy, will she be in hound dog heaven in her new home. The yard is huge, stretching all the way around the house, and there are plenty of nooks and crannies and places to sniff. Plus, the chainlink fence perfectly suits her nosey personality, and will allow her to keep an eye on the neighborhood and everyone walking by.

So, we’re just asking everyone to continue to send positive thoughts and prayers our way so that we can make it through the inspection period and closing with no major issues! If all goes well, we will be moving in and celebrating our first Christmas (and maybe even our first Thanksgiving) in our new home…

Tonight’s 365 Project is dedicated a quick and painless move, and to me on my 300th post with year! Thanks for dropping by and reading!


  1. Ooh, that’s a lovely house! Don’t worry, everything will probably be fine and it’ll become your home. Another benefit I see to the house is the wood screen thing that will stop Electra from going under the house. I used to live in a place that didn’t have it and would hear from the neighbors about my dog having all sorts of mad adventures when I thought she was safe in the yard.

    1. Thanks George! We sure hope everything goes smoothly! We can’t wait to start moving, and finally unpack everything again! And yeah, the wood screen is definitely a good thing. The only thing that ever really gets Electra into any trouble is her hound dog nose, and with her luck, she would manage to get herself stuck under the house chasing a rabbit or something! 🙂
