Officially Homeless

After a series of delays for various paperwork-related reasons on the buyer's end, we finally closed on the condo and moved out yesterday. We've now officially taken up residence (temporarily) with the in-laws in Cottage Grove. We expect to get some good news from the bank within the next couple days on the short sale we're pursuing up in Blaine. So hopefully we'll be living here a month at the most!

Goodbye Condo

About a week and a half ago, we completed a task that we began over a year ago when we undertook a whole series of home improvements... we finally put our condo on the market. Quite shockingly, we got an awesome offer on it a mere 3 days later! And just like that, a 12-year chapter of my life will come to an overdue close when we move next Thursday, 7/10.

Making the transition somewhat difficult is the fact that we may not be able to move into the house we fell in love with last week up in Blaine until the middle of August, although that could possibly change (knock on wood). So the tentative plan is to have the movers store our stuff while we shack up with Denise's parents which is, unfortunately, way down in Cottage Grove!
