Done Gone

Our house on Murray Street is DONE GONE... hooray! When Richard and I bought our house in Wayne, we hadn't sold the little house in Augusta. No matter at the time, we knew in our hearts that Fiddle Ridge was where we wanted to be. So we've been making mortgage payments on TWO houses, and doing some repairs at Murray Street while we're making some improvements at Fiddle Ridge... phew! Can you say OVERLOAD?
This morning we signed papers to sell the Augusta house... deal is closed and we now are the happy owners of only ONE mortgage :) Nice timing too since we have the long holiday weekend ahead of us. We have purposely NOT scheduled anything, though we do have a few options if we want to participate in activities. Right now though, we're thinking we want to spend some solid time at home working in the yard, building the workshop, gardening, and in general NESTING in our home. I think it'll be nice to be rid of the distraction of the other house, and to indulge in passionate bursts of creative home improvements without the guilt of having to spend time on the other place.
Done Gone is a tune from the Fiddler's Fakebook.

Congratulations! All that work last weekend really paid off(literally!). "Done gone" is also southern redneck language, used in everyday conversation (e.g. My girl done gone and run oft on me.).

Aw man, I was gonna say that! Although I would like to add that it's more correct to spell out the last part, O Brother style. "My girl done gone and R-U-N-N-O-F-T"
Anyway, congrats on selling the house! That must be a huge relief.
