We Have A Buyer!!

Squash House here we come! Last evening we signed off on an offer to buy our house! After 8 months on the market, we were ready to get out of Dodge! Now all that is left is the inspection and closing, which will be November 30th! There is always the chance that it won't close - it can happen in any sale - but we're on a positive track here - it WILL close!

From now until closing, there will be a flurry of activity. My posting will be sporadic, but I'll do the best I can to keep you updated on our progress! I'm glad we've been gradually moving things over to the Squash House - it makes the rest of what we have to do here a bit easier!

And where are we headed Sunday? Why to the Squash House! Mr. Squash has a conference along the way Monday and Tuesday, then after that we'll spend the rest of the week getting new windows installed, finishing the kitchen cabinets, and various other last minute details. I'll surely be posting from there!

I'll leave you with a photo of the Squash House from this past summer after the new driveway was installed. I want to say a Huge Thank You to the support you've all given us during these long months! I can't say enough!! Your words of encouragement have really helped along the way - more than you know! It's so nice to know we have a family our there in blogland that really cares!

Be sure to leave the Christmas tree as the last thing to pack so that it will be the first thing to take off the moving truck.

I'm so happy for you! That must be a big relief and an even bigger relief when you turn over the keys! We are in the process of moving too, but we didn't have a house to sell first thank goodness. We bought in Shingletown which is near Shasta and Mt. Lassen in California. Moving is such fun and having stuff in 2 houses really keeps me on my toes. Here's hoping we are all settled for the holidays.

I'm so happy for you. We've been thinking about getting out of AZ for many years. But right now our home is not worth that much...so we will wait, maybe 4 more years then try again. {sigh}
