Hi there, HIB fans! I know I haven’t been around much. Sorry about that. I’ve been trying to get this house purchase thing locked down and I really haven’t been interested in writing about other people’s homes.

I think we may finally be in contract now. It’s hard to know for sure because everyone is gone for the holidays. I’m going to follow up early Monday morning and hopefully report back with the good news.

In expectation of that, I’ve tentatively scheduled a survey for Thursday. That’s actually one of the last things on my to do list. Once that’s done (and contracts are in hand) we can schedule a closing date. Hallelujah!

I’ve actually gone back and prepared a time line of all the twists and turns that went on in my quest to get into contract over the past month. Once we’re done and the keys are in my hand, I’ll post it here for your amusement.

Anyway, I hope you’ve all had a fun Holiday Season and I wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year.
