We moved in on the 15th, have been there ever since! Finally got the garage straightened out so that we can park both cars in it as of yesterday. The study and dining room are still in disarrary, the rest is taking shape pretty nicely.

Looks real

Our (current) house was inspected on Wednesday, we got the buyer's list of things to be fixed today. They were relatively minor and we agreed to fix them. The buyer's earnest money is now non-refundable.

We had a garage sale today, took in about $600. Took the rest of the stuff to the Goodwill. Used the rental truck that we used to haul things to the Goodwill to pick up some new chairs at Pier 1 and outdoor umbrellas at Paddock's. We will be ready for the move next Saturday. We take possession on Friday morning. I am meeting the carpet cleaners at 9:00 am, then picking up a rental Tahoe at the airport. John and I will move a bunch of boxes that Susan does not want the movers handling.
