It is officially ours!

Finally! It only took over 2 hours to get all the paperwork signed. I tell you one thing though if you ever buy a house make sure you have a real estate attorney. We always have and it always goes without a hitch. This time the attorney was going to cost a lot more and we waffled a bit but went ahead and hired him. I am so glad we did! There was "posturing" as the attorney said. I called it being a horses butt, but in the end everything was signed and we are happy.

The front of the house already looks different. While I was at a stand still in the moving due to the carpet cleaners in the house we all attacked the three palm trees on the left of the front door. It looks so much nicer and you can actually see the house.

We had our first meal in the house. How nice! Can you tell which ones are paying attention to their diet and who aren't? Ray is still being VERY good, I am good, but with a coke, and Joseph is just eating what he wants most of the time with the occasional good meal.
Speaking of being good, Ray's blood work came back after 60 days of dieting and the doctor said all of his numbers had vast improvements except his sugar. She said to continue exactly like he has been doing and she will talk with him in a month. His sugar was never very high, it was just on the edge of high so she wants to keep an eye on it. I am so pleased about his cholesterol!!!!
I can't remember what he said his weight was.
Back to packing!

Congratulations Diane and fam!!!!

Keep up the good work on the diets and try Coke really doesn't taste anything diety. Much more like the "real thing".
