To my faithful readers (both of them) I apologize for the lack of updates lately. I suspect I’ll be writing with more frequency in the near future, now that things have settled down somewhat.

There’s plenty of stuff going on in the background, but the most significant news in recent history is that we are moving. We put our house on the market last Thursday and recived three bids in just hours. We selected a bid on Friday and signed the contract.

Of course, selling a house in this market is easy. The tougher part is finding a house, but we somehow managed to do it quickly. After walking through a few houses over the weekend, we finally found one that matched us perfectly yesterday (Monday). Our agent sent over a contract and negotiated with the owner until he agreed to our terms. (This is somewhat of an understatement; from what I understand, she fought like a bulldog for us.) We close on the “old” place about a week before we close on the “new” one, after which we still have about three weeks of rentback to do any repainting before we move.

I’m amazed at how much our property appreciated during the 28 months that we had it before putting it on the market. Of course, properties everywhere appreciated at roughly the same pace. Our “new” house is not much less expensive, but it is much better for our commutes and the location is superb. Photos will come after settlement; for now, just imagine looking out the back window and seeing a golf course just a few feet away. 🙂 Kim and I are very excited, and we can’t wait to have people over once we’re settled!

In other news, my car is almost whole again! I’ll update the car page when I get a chance. There is a lot more to write about, but I don’t have to time to do that just yet.
