But it isn't that simple.
How Can I Miss You When you Won't Go Away
People keep asking us when we are leaving town, and a few people were under the impression we were already gone. That would be great! But there are just a few things still holding us back.
The good news is that our house sale is pending, and the better news is that escrow might closer sooner than originally predicted.
There is still plenty to do. The sale has required an amazing amount of paperwork (now mostly all completed). We need a termite inspection (and possibly some action based on the results). There are a few small repairs that need to be done. We are also stuck in town for a couple of extra weeks beyond escrow because I have a doctor appointment that just couldn't be scheduled any sooner.
A few months ago, we had a long, long list of things to do. That list is now pretty short. Although it has been difficult and frustrating at times, it is doable, and we are doing it.
Every time we check off something from our to-do list, Steve says, "One step closer." We feel closer to freedom each day.
