Why So Quiet Around Here?

Home Sweet Home

It is a well-known fact (to me) that when big things happen in our real lives, not so much happens on the blog. Part of that is usually due to the extra activity that always accompanies whatever it is making real life crazy at that time; the other part is simply because whatever it is we’re doing isn’t ready for public viewing yet.

We have had a big thing happen again: we made an offer on another house last week, and this one was actually accepted. We’re set to move in on July 18, but we need some help to get there. Craig has come up with a pretty clever way to procure that help, and has all the details available right here.

Thanks for your encouragement and assistance along the way. We’re excited.

    Ooh! It’s beautiful, Megan. I’ve never met you in real life, but I can honestly say it looks like YOUR house.
    Congratulations! Good luck with the big move.
    I totally know what you mean about Life’s Big Things and the inability/lack of desire to blog.

    Hi Megan,
    I’ve read your blog for a little while and really enjoy it. Would love to put something towards helping you guys get the house. Just one thing, I’m in London, so would need to use the pay pal option. What does it mean re. no credit or debit?

    Thanks, Gretchen! The inside needs some updating to make it really look like us, but all that is easily done with time and some elbow grease. It was last decorated by a sweet grandma in probably the mid-80’s, back when teal and mauve were all the rage.
    Nicky, I emailed you about this, but wanted to pull most of that email back in here in case anyone else had the same question. The gist on PayPal is that we have a free account, which means we don’t get charged fees as long as people don’t use a credit or debit card to pay. If they do, then PayPal takes a percentage of the payment.
    With a free account, I’m only authorized to accept five of those kinds of payments per year without upgrading to an account where they take a fee out of every transaction, regardless of how it was paid. Counting yours, I can take just two more, so I’ll reserve those for any other international readers.
    Thanks for your interest in helping us out all the way from London!

    Hi Megan and Craig—-
    I would like to help out, but I would like to send a check. What is your current address??
    And Megan, anytime you get around to it, the deal for quilting your quilt still holds—-be it this year or next!!!!!

    It’s purty! Also, I suspected something like this when I saw the photo in your Flickr stream. You’re not half as sneaky as you’d like to be. πŸ˜‰

    I knew I had seen this somewhere. It was on flickr. Anyhoo, I am sure Rob and I will help, but let me confer with him before I commit.

    Hooray! I’m so excited for your family — it’s great that you will finally be able to put down roots. The house is lovely; congrats. πŸ™‚

    Great looking house!! I’m so happy for you and know you will love fixing up your own house again. I’m actually coming to St. Louis in August for a Reliv convention. Probably isn’t much time to see you but maybe we can figure something out.
    We will be down by the arch.
