    enjoy and don't work too hard.
    we have been in our house for almost 3 years and our 3rd bedroom still has a few unpacked cartons!

    Enjoy condo living.
    I offered the 500 after repeated declines..... My next offer woulda been 1000 to her Mom's charity of choice.... at least woulda got some tax benefit out of that... all in all was really worth getting in when we did w/o the hotel and pet boarding thing.

It would have cost double that for the movers to store and hotel and stress.... so to me it was a bargain..... didn't like having to pay and I would have extended the courtesy to our buyers if needed.

    This whole adventure was in the 'fast lane' since we listed our house on July 26th.... sold on the 28th and bought the condo on the 30th! Good for my DW 'cuz I didn't get into cranky overload...!

    Closed on the house Friday at 9 am at the Plymouth Registry of Deeds and had time to kill so went downtown for breakfast and then strolled a consignment shop..... DW loved the opal ring that was an estate piece... so..... I treated her to a belated anniversary gift...!

    Back the the PRD for our noon closing on the condo... surplus funds deposited and back to the condo to continue unpacking..... and now we're dumping more stuff that we never shoulda moved....!

    Today.... I'm back to work while she takes care of the new place.

    That just means I could see him in Feb, or April. I am leaning towards both at this point.

    Not bad commutes at all Glad the moving is done and that you were able to see the $500 as a bargain of sorts.
