Poker, anyone?

It's like playing a hand of poker and waiting to see who holds the best hand. This is the bidding war for a new house for us. We accepted the bid on our present home,to sell, and now wait to see if we hold the upper hand on the new one. It's the playing of the old game of marbles. I'll give you the blue catseye for two ruby gems! All right, if you throw in the amber star too! And you know what?
When it's all over, it really isn't. Because then you have to madly think about what is important to move with you, or donate the item, then pack up the rest. Oh fun! It's exciting but oh my goodness the Tums bottle is growing empty.

Hi Norma! I am excited for you that you already have a buyer for your home! And I know what it's like being in a bidding war over a house...been there, done that. Good luck, my friend. Hope you come out victorious!
