House update

Well, much has happened since the last update. We have agreed to terms with the sellers of the house we want, and we have a buyer in place for our house. Both houses have been inspected and appriased, so all that's left from that perspective is the paperwork. Closing is going to be fun, because there's a bit of a daisy chain that needs to be resolved. The people who are buying our buyer's house have to close on their house, then they close on our buyer's house, then on our current house, and then finally on the house we're buying. Thankfully, our sellers are long gone and seem to be amenable to letting us take possession a few days early so we can move before all the closings occur. It's still gonna make for a couple of hellishly busy days.

In the meantime, we're about to take off to Switzerland for a week. (Yes, this trip was planned long before we knew we were going to be moving at this time.) We've been doing some packing, but are really going to have to kick it into gear when we return. Then there's a million other details, like moving phone/cable/utilities, filling out a change of address form, and so on and so on. I'm getting tired just thinking about it.

I'm thrilled about the new house, but man will I be happy when this is all in the rearview mirror.
