Shortly after my last post we started looking at houses in a two stage plan to downsize and simplify our lives in the final year or two before my husband retires. ( he will have the magic number in a years time but isn’t sure if he will go or stay on longer)
Well the plan got accelerated to warp speed when our agent tipped off his
office to our house being potentially for sale. Before we could even get ready
for listing, we were sold. Which we thought was a good thing, as it meant we
didn’t have to prep the house for sale and could focus our efforts instead on
the new house. Oh, yeah, we needed a new house.
We found one we wanted and put in an offer. Road-blocks and detours have
abounded, the latest being the most egregious. The sellers want to delay the
closing another week as they will be away for March break and unable to complete
the paper work. We have already had to set the date back a week in order to get
the land title cleared up, now another week. Which gives us very little time
between the two sales. We had a wonderful plan where we had a whole month to get
renovations done and moved in now….not so much.
So that’s where I’ve been, touring houses,measuring rooms, packing boxes ( 24
from the quilting room and still not finished) looking at new cabinets, and
tearing my hair out. Not much room in there for sewing.
But I’ll be back…
And maybe I'll be writing from here
