The contract on the house has been signed, and barring any major catastrophes, it’s been sold “as is”. Being the morally sound people we are, *sigh*, we can’t just hand over the house “as is”.
After replacing multiple parts on the oven, it’s still not fixed. So the new owners will be receiving a new oven. Wonder what kind they’d like.
And while Hubby was cleaning out the attic, the attic stairs fell apart. Now they’ll have new stairs, along with a new oven.
Then there’s the back garage door. For years it hasn’t opened and closed properly. WE never minded it, but THEY might. So a brand new back door has been installed.
We gotta hurry up and get outa here before a downpour of catastrophes begin.
I think we may have found a place. It’s not in our ideal location of downtown near the school, but it’s got a nice sidewalk leading to the downtown area. Perfect for running. And biking to school, of course.
Plus it’s near our niece who just had a baby and quite possibly may need a babysitter here and there. Mario is ALL over that.
In the meantime, we have done NOTHING to prepare ourselves for the actual move itself. I’m waiting for my hubby to do it all. He’s waiting for me. So at this point, everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING remains untouched.
I wonder if we subtract a couple grand off the house, if we can just leave it all here. It took us years to collect enough stuff to fill all the shelving downstairs. I’d think they’d be happy to have that done for them already.
But if they’d rather start out with empty shelves, I’m sure we can make it all fit in our new, smaller abode.
