Escrow has closed...on our new place (and the previous owners' new place in the Tri-Cities). They will be moving out over the next few days.
I am starting to get really excited about this. Today my mom spearheaded an expedition to the other side of the pond which included Ikea: Gordon now has another nice new bookcase to put in his office. I love the "as is" section at Ikea! The only drawback is that you have to cram an already-assembled piece of furniture into your vehicle...but it's worth it!
