Assuming our realtor still dwells in reality, this means we just need to finish up the appraisal (which is already underway), get a termite inspection (scheduled for Monday - apparently we don't have to be there), and get a roofer out to take a look at the roof.
Oh, and move. Today I will be reserving a moving van, getting a bunch of boxes from a friend who just moved, and, ah, packing. I started packing last night, and after I'd gotten about 75% of the crystal, china, and linens into a tub and packed all my winter clothes, and my DH had packed several boxes of books, I sat down to make a list of all the categories of things that will need to be packed. It was almost two pages. Good grief. I thought I'd been downsizing these last few months (and in reality, that list would have been so much scarier if not for that), and I can't believe we own all that crap. I really need to get to work.
Of course, I could tell myself that I won't have to move again for a very long time, but for some reason I suspect that's not true. I do think I won't have to move lock, stock, and barrel again for a while, and might get to enjoy a permanent address for a good long time - but somehow I don't see being stationary in our future.
Anyway...thanks all of you for your kind words and well wishes. I am so delighted this insane short sale process is finally (mostly) over, and I am looking forward to having a space to decorate in real life! (And, yes, there will be pictures!)
