Good News! We closed on the house in Columbia on Monday. Everything went off without a hitch so we are the proud owners of a new house and we can't wait to get moved and get settled. I'm in the middle of getting quotes from movers so the whole thing is starting to seem more and more real.
Things are moving along well with the sale of the Houston house. We have finally seen the Inspection Report (after extending the Option Period) and agreed to the list of repairs that our buyers want. I've already scheduled the drain inspector and bath/tile people to take care of the master bath issues (a leak in the shower pan). The plan is to close on June 30.
Some dear friends in Houston have begun planning a going-away party for us. This move will be tougher than the move from Greenville, I think. We're really going to miss our friends, our church and all that Houston has to offer.
