The Realtor just left my house

And I am so pleased! She is going to list my house for about $15,000 more than I expected! AND more importantly, she expects to sell it within DAYS. It is so exciting to think that things could happen as quickly as she's saying!

This Realtor is just wonderful. Just this week she has closed two houses worth about $500,000 each, plus a $3.5 million home. (And this is Oklahoma, just to remind you. Our property values tend to be very inexpensive compared to other markets.)

She flat knows what she's doing. I'm completely confident she'll be able to deliver what she promises. She's also willing to do what it takes to make it happen.

Meanwhile, I've moved what I need to a temporary apartment. I start my new job in the morning. I'm going to do a little bit more work here before I leave for the night to drive 2 hours to the new place and get some sleep. In the morning, I'll walk a block to the office to start my new tour of duty.

I might be offline for a while. I'll have to see what the policy is on internet access at the new job. It could be that I'll be going to the library to get my online fix, or to an internet cafe.

I'm at that point where I wish I had another week of prep time, but I don't.

Emotions have been high. I'm desperately going to miss my church and all my friends here, and I was all weepy this morning as goodbyes were said. Well, beyond weepy, to be honest. I was just about to cross over into the ugly cry.

Time to sign off and pack up my underwear, which I forgot to box up yesterday. I've got a little list of things like that that I MUST remember to take for tomorrow.

Don't know for sure when I'll be back here, or back online. I'll catch up with you on the other side!

This is terribly good news! I wish things were selling as well around here. Heck we'd be in DC by now if that was the case.

Still I am enjoying GA while I can...

Good luck on your first day. You will do well..I just know it!

LOL--yes, underwear is a must-have item. :)

I'm glad for the good news on your house. That will be a nice weight off your mind when you don't have to think about that anymore.

Good luck at the new job! I hope you don't have to wait too long before you can come back and tell us how it's going! :)
