The Moving Odyssey, part One

The Moving Odyssey, part One

Sometimes you forget exactly how much goes into moving.  Holy cow, I’m not going to have a lot of free time in the next six weeks.  Our offer was accepted in Toms River, with only slight tweaking, and we’re going to have no trouble overlapping by a couple of weeks – signing on the new house on November 4th, signing for the old house on the 18th.  Plenty of time for painting, cleaning, etc.  Packing is another issue entirely, I’m afraid.

We’re using the same lawyer for both transactions, so that’s no problem.

We’re using the same bank for all the sundry bank things that need to be done – so far, so good.

The home inspection here is tomorrow, the home inspection there is Tuesday.

The kids have a four-day weekend because of the teachers’ convention, so we don’t have to take them out of school.

The movers’ estimate came in under what we expected. 

I still can’t exhale, though.  Not until it’s all over, so thank goodness for quick closings.  If I had to do this over 90 days, I’d have to be institutionalized.
