May. 27th, 2011 @ 11:56 pm Good news! Bye-bye old house
Current Mood: happyhappy
In case you missed me cartwheeling around Twitter and Facebook earlier today, we've finally sold our house. Lest I lose my status as a supreme procrastinator, we close on the new house on Tuesday, so yes, we managed to sell our house with 2 days to spare. I know technically our close is way off, but it's just different buying the next house and having no pending sale on this one. They tried to shave some off the price after inspection (um hello that's why we dropped the price) so it was by no means a done deal

Just to recap:

At the end of March our 1.5 year search for a new home came to an end here:

At which point we realized we were in no way ready to sell our current home:

So we did the logical thing and bought 100 rubbermaid containers:

Then rented a big-ass storage container to stash them in:

We proceeded to cram it full of our really, really important junk:

Once we had the room we forced V into child labour:

And used a bit of improvisation to get the house ready for market in two weeks:

Just over a month of viewings sent us on adventures:


Did I mention this was the wettest May EVER?:

So a lot of our time was spent in or near water:

But I'm fairly our van will smell like wet dog forever (good thing he's cute):

Luckily we avoided this when some pretty big winds blew though:
Sucks. Not my house

Some unlucky relatives may have gotten their fill of us (and our wet, smelly dog):
Can we go now?

After hours and hours with bankers and lawyers (I have no pics, because really who wants to see that?) we've finally done it!:

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some boxes to pack and movers to call.
Who does she think she is?
