Today we should close escrow on the new place. It's been a tense few days, as the title company in Stockton has been somewhat less than speedy getting things handled, which was beginning to make everybody up here nervous (as in "If we don't close today the people from whom we're buying our new place will lose the house they're buying in the Tri-Cities!") Yes, the agent in the Tri-Cities is a poo-head, but that's a separate issue.
By the end of today we should be the proud owners of a 5-acre "ranch". The Roths will start moving out on Friday and be totally out by the 20th. Then I start painting. The Pepto-Bismol pink walls (and ceiling: yes) in the bedrooms is going away before one stick of furniture is moved in.
