I’ve had a good excuse for not updating in a while: Work has been crushingly busy, and Jay and I have spent what free time we have had working on getting our house ready to sell. I’m writing this while waiting for the final word that the annual budget is ready for our Board, and will leave work to go home to a completely clean house and reasonably well-tended yard.
Things seem to be progressing well on the Chestertown end of the transition: We received word from our mortgage broker that the appraisal on our new house went well, so I think we are beyond all of the major hurdles we should encounter on the way to home ownership. Of course, there will be a hiccup or two prior to closing – there always is – but things seem to be going even better than expected.
We still have the small matter of selling our Charlottesville house, but I’m reasonably confident that won’t be too hard: The market is good, and our house is quite remarkable as well as affordable. Fingers crossed.
No, it’s pretty much a matter of packing and moving, well, and seeing the graduation of Jay’s son, emptying an apartment, closing out work in my current job, teaching a class, figuring out what Jay is going to do, saying goodbye to friends, and a million other things.
All of which can wait until tomorrow. 🙂
