They cashed the check!

Well ... we haven't received a phone call from Troy Towers saying that they approved our application, but they cashed our check today. We figure that constitutes a contract. Hooray! We have a place to live! What a relief.

We'll fill you in on the details when we get them--like our exact address and when we're officially allowed into the apartment (probably March 1).

On another note: Saying good bye to friends and family is really hard! Mary went to dinner last night with three of her best friends here in SLO: Angela Phillips, Linda Neugent, and Helen Anderson (left to right in photo). We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Mo's (the best barbecue anywhere!), and had some laughs, as we always do.

Mary hid her tears until she got home. Oops ... here they come again.

The French have a phrase that describes people who are both attractive and unattractive at the same time: jolie-laide. Mary developed a new French phrase that describes how she and Jeff feel: heureux-triste.

How is it possible to be happy and sad at the same time?
