Moving day is coming...

Moving day is coming. But we don't know when. That frustrates me very much -- I was expecting to find out when our closing date is last night, on our "final" walk-through. But that didn't happen.

We know that lots of people are itching to come help us move / paint / whatever, and want to know when so they can make arrangements to do it. That includes me. So, here's where we're at:

- We know we have to close on or before March 11th (a week from today).
- We know there is a 1-2 business day turnaround between when we close and when we can move in, because the money has to change hands and make it to the seller before they let us move in.
- In our walk-through, we found some items they need to take care of -- most pretty minor, and I think they could address them all in a single day if they wanted to.
- During our final walk-through, they told us they would call to let us know to schedule closing, a day or two before we can actually close.

That means might be able to start moving in this time next week, but there's also a good chance we won't get the keys to our place until Monday the 14th (or even the 15th).

We've decided we do want to paint before we move in. Lots of you have volunteered, but your availability depends on when we decide to paint. We can't paint until we get the keys.

I don't know what our plan is... things will be able to gel quite a bit more once we know our closing date at least. We'll call everyone "on or before" Wednesday to let you know when our closing date is at least.

We know you're doing the best that you can. We'll be there for your move. HOPEFULLY it will be on Saturday, but whatever.
