We had a couple of offers on the house right away. We signed the paperwork today and are relieved that everything went so smoothly. We made a little bit of money, but that’ll be spent on storage and moving.

We were able to negotiate a bit and get some of our favorite things back. The buyers don’t seem to care much one way or another, so we picked up our rain barrels and a few other things. Our storage unit is filled, our friends’ yards are filled with plants and stones, and our apartment is filled with all kinds of random bits of a life we no longer lead.

Apartment living feels like everything is fake. Like life is on hold. At least I’m only 3 minutes from work and can save money on food and gas.

I resigned as Creative Director and we finally hired my replacement a month or so ago. So now I’m spending my days documenting projects and wrapping up loose ends.

We’ve looked at a LOT of property online and a few in person. A couple piqued our interest, but nothing of note yet.

It’s a huge relief at having the house sold – and so quickly! Feels like we cut off a great weight and are free to move forward now.

Suggestion: ┬áTry every angle of getting a loan on the perfect property with an older manufactured home on it. You’ll learn many new things. Most of those new things will likely come as no surprise.

On the up side, you may sprout a few new grey beard hairs.

The search continues.
