FMJ - Day 242 A.K.A. "Turkey Day"

November 23, 2006: While walking Biscuit this morning we found a single dime. Chalk up another 10 cents to the Found Money Jar fund.

We garnered a donation from Aunt Anju of soda cans and water bottles. The family also decided to put an offer on a house for my mother-in-law... Everyone in the family was in agreement that it was the most perfect house for her. Even the address is good karma as it's... 13029 Carolyn St. All their previous houses had "13" in the address. And, the 13th is my wife's only brother's birthday -- april 13. Also, it's Maya's birthday day -- September 13. The 29th of May is mine. And the street name of "Carolyn" resembles their old house's street name... "Coquelyn." The house itself is just our style with vaulted ceilings, an open and flowing floor plan, large sliding glass doors off the family room and master bedroom to the back yard and a walled yard with water features -- Koi pond and waterfall. Also, there's a patio with half walls in the front of the house. Stucco and brick. I'm really hopeful that they'll accept our full price offer... can't let a perfect house get away.
