Not an April Fool joke. We hope ... our realtor called us Tuesday afternoon to tell us the sale was closed. A closing on April Fool's day seems a fitting conclusion for our sale saga; it went up for sale on August 16.
I'm not sure what we would have done if it had fallen through again. Arson? Explosives? Abandonment? Hari kari?
Or maybe we would have just kept running!
Fortunately, we do not have to consider any of those.
I have waited until today to post this because I reallly wanted to see the money in our account before breathing that final sigh of relief.
But it is there now and we can do what we have planned on doing. Driving off into the sunrise ...
We started in California after all!
[From Craig: Story of My Life department] For years I have been lusting after the FIOS service from Verizon, but was always told that we couldn't have it in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It's about the fastest Internet and movie access available in the US. Today I logged into the Verizon site to terminate our phone service and was confronted by a announcement "Wonderful news! Your area is now eligible for Verizon FIOS service." Grrrrr!
