Default Moving

We've sold our house! Actually it went under contract several weeks ago, and we are scheduled to close on Thursday. I say scheduled because the buyer's bank is being very irritating! We aren't going to be told that the loan is for sure going through until we actually close! But we need to be out of the house. So we are busily packing away.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it will go through, but we won't sign the lease for our new apartment until it does, so I can't arrange for my internet connection in the new place until then. As a result, I can be fairly sure I will be without internet for several days, at least, and possibly for a couple of weeks.

I'll be here through Wednesday, and after that, I'll be back as soon as I can!

Yeah,, good luck with the move. Sounds you didn't have too much trouble selling the house? That would be good. I also wish you much luck and happiness in your new place.

Thanks, all!

Hans, it didn't take too long. We put the house on the market the beginning of August. But these were only the second people who looked at it. It seems like something of a miracle that it sold at all.

In this market that was not long at all. What is the new place like? Are you moving very far? You may have said it before, but, if you did I missed it.

For now we are moving into an apartment about 10 miles away. We have some dreams about what is next, but that depends partly on if dh retires this year or in 2 years. In the meantime, we will only be about 3 miles from our grandsons, instead of 13 miles. Isn't that nice!?!?!

Woohoo!! Sale went through!! We closed about 4 hours late, but we did close!! We are moved into an apartment and got internet hooked up yesterday!! Didn't have time to get on here, but at least had it!

Of course, it is taking time to get unpacked and settled in. We have the place livable, but there is still a lot to be unpacked, so I'm staying busy.

Thanks for all your good wishes, everyone!
