We are writing a contract in about an hour

We visited the 'dream house' one more time, arranging our furnature in our minds and trying to figure out what would go where and how to buffer the noise from the street, we came across a neighbor out walking. We asked why so many houses on that side of the street were for sale and he told us that the road behind was being widened to another 4 lanes from the two existing ones with in a year to 18 mo. EEEKKKK! If we could hear the cars whizzing by now, what would it be like with 6 lanes?

We continued the search, not giving up the 'dream house' right off hand until....

We walked into the one on which we are placing a bid within the next hour. The papers are being drawn up right now and our realtor should be back here to the kids soon. Hopefully, the bid will be accepted by the time we get back to Ft. Myers and we can begin the packing in earnest!

Cross your fingers for us, faithful readers and friends! I'll put up pics when I get home.
