2 months 8 days? I guess I've forgotten about writing about what happens. I suppose people would get bite-size increments if I still had a Facebook wall I spewed on, but I don't, and it's probably better that way.

I can't say nothing noteworthy happens, because in that time, we bought a house. Escrow closed on Monday, but the sellers wanted a rentback that we agreed would be up to 21 days. Well, they had said they were planning on only renting for three, and ultimately only ended up renting for one. We got keys on Wednesday.

Now for the fun of packing and moving and trying to do things that require big openings to be maintained like replacing the windows. And do we want better locks? And solar panels? And how come the laundry machines haven't shipped yet? (No, not the laundry machine; the laundry machines.)

I'd love to think that by the end of the month, we'll be living out of there. Hard to imagine at this point that that would happen, though. So much stuff to move. Oh, and it's in Castro Valley, so my commute to work essentially doubles... that kinda sucks, though it's mitigated by not having to drive the vast majority of the way (which, in turn, is mitigated by my tendency to get nauseous using my laptop on the bus). I guess we'll see how that goes. I still think the place is worth it.
