Wah Hooo!

I sold the house I sold the house! Can you believe it? It was only on the market this Wednesday and Thursday and had four people tour it. One of them made an offer Thursday night. The real estate agent called me at work this morning during a day that was already going really well. He told me that he had an offer, should he come by my workplace and present it? I asked him to run it by me first so I could think about it. OK, he said, It's a CASH offer, no septic or well inspection. I stopped him right there and told him I'd take it. So an hour later he brought the papers by and I signed many times and sold the house.

Of course I still need to go through the closing. It's set for February 3rd--that's, what, four WEEKS away? Yikes! So I stopped at the post office to ship the CD I sold on Amazon, then home to start calling apartments. There's a three bedroom in the neighboring city/state right next to my good friend SLA. It would be so ideal and they're renovating it. I can't see it until next week. I talked to the landlord for quite a while and basically got her to move me up to the first spot of people to call when it's ready. The price is right, the only thing is I don't know if they take pets. If not, I'll try to talk her into that one, too as I don't want to give up my little dog.

Well, after the long (future?) landlord conversation, I called my mother and told her the good news. She is all excited about it too and wants to sell her house ASAP. They haven't contacted her about it yet. I reminded my agent that my Mom was really going to be anxious to sell her house now that I've sold mine. And he apologized and said they will have the agent licensed for that state call her very soon.

Well, I just have a couple more things to do here and then I'm off to celebrate with the Vegetable Man! Have a super, great, very pronoia weekend!
