And so it begins...

Settlement went off without a hitch, and now we own property. We signed 20 different pieces of paper, which was surprising as we expected to sign more. Not that I'm anxious to sign stuff, but, you know. Our lawyer was there with us, and I felt like one of those mob guys testifying before Congress. Every time a paper was handed to us, we passed it to the attorney and waited for his OK. Then we raced all over, buying this, giving away that, and got a fabulous area rug at Ikea. Their furniture is crap, but their accessories are occasionally worth it, and so it proved today.

Then we went to the new place and cleaned. The previous owners were good decorators but indifferent housekeepers, so there was alot to be done. And still is. By 6:30 we were just too tired so we packed it in.

Look out for invites to the housewarming, which will most likely be August 16. That's pretty soon, yes, but it will force us to get things in order right away.
