Weekend Update

I am happy to report that the Chili Polenta dish was a hit at Potluck. Of course I did have to explain what "that stuff on top" was to some of the born-and-bred southerns. Maybe I should've said it was Italian Grits :) If you ask me, the addition of garlic, onion, peppers, and then cheese to the polenta made the dish. It was fairly simple and inexpensive so it will be added to the regular potluck rotation. Atlanta was fun. It was nice to have the whole weekend at home before heading down. It's amazing to think that we were only there for less than 48 hours. While the Sox tanked on Monday night, they made up for it last night. I'm certain that the whole of Turner Field was aware that I'm a Tek fan. I might've blown some eardrums :) Now that I'm back I'm going to start thinking seriously about the whole housing situation. I was looking at some websites and found some cute places in Cordova. While I haven't decided what I want to do yet, I have decided to give the Boyd's realtor a call and start the process. I have to give notice by August 1 if I am leaving my place and would love some overlap so that I don't feel rushed with moving. I'm very much wrestling with this. Do I really want to commit to Memphis in such a large way? One of the signs I'm looking for is that my no-money-down house payment would be comparable to my current rent (I do live in Collierville). Once again I'm praying that the door is wide open or slammed shut. There is only one way to find out--if I don't try the door, how will I know that it is open for me?
