This past week has had its ups and downs.

We found out that we’d be getting less from the 401(k) fund than we had anticipated. That led to some scrambling and number crunching. And then a big sigh of relief that we could still proceed with buying the house.

So though we had to move our closing date back to the 17th, as originally planned, all else seems to be coming together.

Now we have 2 weeks before close, instead of 1. But there’s still much planning and packing to do.

If you think of it, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Things can always go bad — as in ‘the devil is in the details’ — I don’t want to tell the attachlings that we can’t move in to ‘our house.’ So far so good.
