Escrow is officially open ... Yikes!

It just dawned on us last night that we really have only 30 days to finish everything around here. Guess it's time to roll up our sleeves and get going.

Luckily, we don't have too much to do, since we completed a lot of work before we put the house on the market. But that doesn't mean there aren't boxes to pack, belongings to toss/sell, kitties to get to the vet and, of course, a home to which we must bid a fond farewell.

Our next home--which we have yet to find, by the way--will look a lot different, to be sure: less than half the square footage (maybe a third!), in an apartment building at the center of the universe. The universe does revolve around New York City, doesn't it?

We realized a long time ago that "home" is wherever we find ourselves, as long as we're together. And as for the shrinking square footage ... well, thank goodness we get along!
