Offer made on house. Now that the contract is in, I can tell you that it's in Herndon, a few blocks away from Old Town, a four-bedroom three-bath sort of modern day hobbit hole, all newly restored/renovated, at just the right price. It currently has a beautifully restored ~1960ish french-vanilla-yellow Triumph TR3 in the garage as well, but somehow I think that will be gone by the time we move in. I told the real estate agent that the seller could leave it there if they wanted, they shouldn't feel obligated to move it on our account. ;)

My sister, laurie_robey and I went over to my parents' house this afternoon and organized my parents' meds and had a family meeting about how to make sure they were getting all the treatment and care they need. My sister will be calling them to remind them and check on pill-taking, and I'll be going over at lunchtime (since I work near them) to follow-up and generally look in on them. Laurie, on the other hand, will be researching their various meds' interactions and side-effects, as well as any information we might need to know about my mom's diabetes and other conditions.

My brother is not being helpful; if anything, he seems to be sulking that mom and dad are getting all the attention while he has a broken arm. Oy. The fact that my sister has been doing all that she's been doing while recovering from her own broken leg seems to be lost on him. But he is the way he is, we just have to get past it.

I think that's all for now ... it's been a good day for making progress. Tomorrow, assuming all goes well, I'll go ahead and try to start drawing SJ for next week after all.

PS: Oh, by an interesting coincidence, this house is also a few blocks away from the bar that was the original model for SJ's The Watering Hole.

It's kinda hard to tell in the picture, but the shrubbery out front covers the front of the building, and has a peephole cut out so you can see through the window. Hence, the hobbit-holeness! :) It's a neat, funky lil' place. :)

Heeheehee! Thanks, buddy! Your art is really coming along. :)

I don't think I'll need to use it, but it's much appreciated nonetheless!

Not to cause any jinxes, but I'd be worried if they left the car myself. I look at it and think of Tom Hanks in "The Money Pit".

The house looks great Gneech. The kitchen might be a bit tight but I'm sure you could work with it. I hope the family situation works out. BTW if you need a resource for help on the meds let me know. I may have a nurse who could answer some questions for you.

Hey, the kitchen is still bigger than the one we've got now! :)

re: medical resources, Laurie's been packing her brains full o' info about it all, so I think we're okay -- but if we need something we'll definitely ask. Thanks!

Good job handling the parental medical stuff.
