Morning! Bit is off today, so today is grocery day.
Good news, we have a house! We had an offer accepted, the inspection happens today, and we have closing in 30 days (I don’t have an exact date yet). I figure we’ll move mostly over the 4th of july extended weekend, or the weekend before, depending when the closing date is.
As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care
IAN is a great group to join, and a good place to learn to write diaries. Drop one of us a PM to be added to the Itzl Alert Network anytime! We all share the publishing duties, and we welcome everyone who reads IAN to write diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!

Now we’re just figuring out the incidentals. It has a gas range, so I’ll have to add gas to our utlities bill, which will require another deposit, but it’s not a large one, and we’ll deal with that in July. If we have to use our electric burner and countertop oven for a few days more, so be it. I’m not fond of gas, I don’t trust it, maybe I’ve seen too many horror movies and crime shows. But, having a gas range means, if we lose power due to a storm, we can still cook, so there’s that. Given the holiday, I’ll be surprised if they can connect the gas before July 5th anyway. And we won’t move fully out of here until the water and the electric are on at the new place, so that will affect our final move in date.
We have a friend who’s going to drive the truck for us. We have the finances worked out, unless that changes, we don’t know the final closing costs yet. So keep your fingers crossed there it goes lower instead of higher.
I was up until almost 1 am figuring out the budget on Wednesday night, then, after Bit left for work, FlSNDad fell, and I had 3 seizures back to back. When I finally woke up my sugar tanked to the point I was getting tunnel vision and had trouble walking. Thank the gods for Sprite and then food. I don’t know how low it was, I didn’t take the time to check my sugar, but it got instantly better with the Sprite. Even though it tasted like sugar water to me LOL. I used to like Sprite.
I wanted to get some packing done on my thursday, but I just didn’t have the spoons. Hopefully I will get some done this weekend. Saturday is my birthday, and then there’s Memorial Day. Bit works all weekend though.
What are you doing this weekend?
