Update--sale is on

It looks like the sale of the house is on.  Working through agents you don't get the details, but they still want to buy.  Closing sometime about Oct. 1 or 2, rent back from them for 90 days.  Looks like the end of Dec.  So, it's been 23 or 24 years since we moved here, and lots of "stuff" to go through.  But not today, just got back from seeing Mom.  She will be 97 in Sept. and is like the Timex watch comercial.  Takes a lick'in, and keeps on tickin'.   Helped her eat the noon meal, took her some new clothes, etc.
Got together with some GFs last night for a Mexican dinner, laughed, talked, (mostly about aging parents) and got cough up on their lives.  It's good to have GFs to talk and "vent" with.

Sara, my son is going through the same process as you, selling a home is not an easy proposition and can be nerve-wracking. Glad it seems to be working out. Have you any idea where you will be moving to? Thanks also for the weather update. My friends in Sarasota must be experiencing this hot weather as well.

We are still in hopes of moving into a "larger" condo at the beach. We have some relatives by marriage who are willing to sell their's to us, but we may have to rent in the meantime. I was hoping to avoid renting, as that means 1 extra move, but they aren't going to be ready until this time next year. We need to live somewhere Jan-August of 2015.
I have learned a newer building with "hurricane resistant" sliding glass doors are more noise proof, and a building built around 2005 or newer has better plumbing! No cast Iron pipes, need PVC.
