Home owners

Last Friday, we finally exchanged on our house. Exchange, for those who might not be familiar with the ins and outs of the process, is when we basically put down 5-10% of the purchase price of the house and both parties agree to go through with the sale. Completion is the next bit, which is when we actually get the keys to the house. That happens on October 1 for us. We have our rental place until the 12th, so that gives us a comfortable overlap to get things moved. However, we are always to hear about eager volunteers who are willing to help us move on that first weekend, October 6th and 7th...

So this is happy news for us, even if it is slightly scary, considering the sums of money involved. It may not come across much in this post, because it has been a long time since our intial offer back sometime in June to get here. But believe me, we're excited.

Anyone want to come to the house-warming party? It'll likely be the following Saturday. Contact me for details.

Of course I want to come to the housewarming party, but it's perhaps just a little too far for one evening ;o)
