So Ben and I tried to act like grown-ups today. It was kinda scary! I don't really enjoy thinking of myself as an adult or acting like one, if I can help it. But I sucked it up for this occasion. We went to a bank to apply for a home loan. That's right! A big day in our lives! And ... we were approved! They were really friendly. They didn't yell at me or anything (and yes, I have many irrational fears about such things). We now have a slip of paper that says we can have the money if we want it to show to people who might want to know if we can have the money. (And that, my friends, is a run-on sentence). Anyhow, we're not quite sure what we'll do with it now that we have it! But quite frankly, I'm flattered. And kind of proud of these little Burdette's for actually being able to buy a house. I really don't know what we'll do. I have the single greatest neighborhood that ever lived and the most lovable calling imaginable in a really fantastic ward (We want to magical find an affordable and adorable house safely within ward boundaries)! Sigh. But hey. We're just gonna take it slow and see what marvelous things might happen. You never know where the wind will take you!
Happy Birthday yesterday to my dear Auntie Jan, who is a second mom and one of the greatest ladies I know! I love you, Aunt Jan!!
