I'm soooo happy to report that I ended up getting my Tuscan-themed estate after all. Following much back-and-forth (and irritating as hell) negotiations, we are closing August 17th! Thanks, ma, for taking on the stress of negotiating with a certain mean old Italian man lol.
This couldn't have happened at a better time because this is a house I have no smoking mental associations with. Quitting is going to turn me into a raving bitch (Cave Chaos should get pretty damn interesting,) but I know being in a new home will help a lot.
I can't wait to move in! I'll post photos as the interior decorator finishes each room and the mason makes improvements to the outside of the house. And the swimming pool... can't wait to build that for my kids :-)
