A Moving Experience...
(an ongoing series) — Part 4

July 9th update
Okay, I've been busier than a one-armed paperhanger with fleas over the past six days, so please forgive my not getting the next post up by now.

Actually, what I'm gonna do it just start from scratch. I've written an extensive prologue which completely explains the back-story of our house situation, and I've nearly completed a NEW ‘Part I,’ which properly connects the prologue to the place where I originally began the series. So all of the existing posts will change slightly, at very least by part number.

Trust me, it'll all be much clearer in the end... :)

I guess it's safe to say that I'm realizing exactly how bad I am at writing about things as they happen. Guess I would suck at being a news reporter, huh?

I've decided I much prefer laying out a scenario over which I have more control, but oh well, I guess that's just the way I roll.

Needless to say, the upshot is that this particular post, Part 4, will be going away completely and will be replaced by a completely updated entry on where we stand in the process — and where we stand right now is in the position of being eleven days (and counting) away from ‘outta here’ and into our new apartment.

And if that makes your head snap back, think about mine!

I'm going to make every effort to get that new beginning posted by tonight (and I'll make another temporary post to announce that, so don't bother looking until I tell you it's done), but I hope you'll forgive me if I have to extend that timeline just a bit.

Things have never been crazier for Michelle and me than they are right now, but we've also never felt so much at peace in the wake of it all. Amazing.

Seeya soon...

Lots to tell. This is a temporary post that will be replaced by the actual one, um... 'soon,' with the complete story of some great news.
Our house has sold! It only took six days when the average, I've been told, for days-on-the-market in our area is sixty.

This story is happening and turning so fast I can hardly keep it straight in my mind — let alone in this blog. Things will be settling down a bit after about three weeks' time, but for now it's full speed ahead. After burning the candle at both ends for five solid weeks, we still have to turn it up yet another notch. We've gotta be outta here by July 30th!

Gotta go rent an apartment.

Gotta go rent another storage unit.

I'll be spending my next three weeks dealin' with mortgage brokers, home inspectors, repairmen, and apartment managers.

Then all will be quiet on the western front — until December...
