This morning I got a few comments on Facebook regarding my “status”: I had complained mildly that our house wasn’t on the market yet… several friends said, “list it now before it’s perfect,” and then several more encouraged me to bury a statue of St. Joseph in our yard, as they had heard it worked to sell homes.

I looked it up, and decided I wasn’t faithful enough to actually BUY the little kit… oh well.

THEN, look what came in the mail today:


A gift from my sister in law!!!

So, the statue is buried, the prayer has been said, and now we wait. (Oh, and finish the house and actually LIST it, so people will know it’s for sale!!)

PS… if you happen to KNOW anyone who wants a house in Salida, Colorado, I’ve uploaded some pics of the almost-unfinished house here!
