most-upstream deal is the one that I know the least about, and if it
goes south it now affects four different parties. Ugh.

if the dependency-graph includes a cycle, you're screwed.

It appears that my buyers have received their mortgage commitment. I have to read through everything to make sure, but the initial indication is that we are ready to move on to the "yes we're moving, here we go" phase. Nice!

IG - I am *very* happy for you - great news!!!

And now you are about to (re)discover that your 'yes we're moving, here we go" phase is not necessarily fun.

In fact, I've always found it to be ***lots*** of ***non***fun.

Boxes - packing - moving companies - etc etc etc.

My sentiment lies more along the "better you than me" direction... <grin>

But yes - it is certainly time for you to do the Happy Dance.

So........

DANCE!

Why do I have a feeling that you mean "Dance!" in the context of you're pointing a revolver at my feet?

Sorta depends on your work environment.

If you worked at Playboy, I'm pretty sure it'd be okay.

Believe it or not, there has been all sorts of additional drama since I posted the "yes we're moving" a couple of weeks ago, and we're still not moved, still don't have a closing date on either side, and still are sitting here anxious about getting everything to come together.

I'll post more when things settle down.

IG, What are you doing over there, setting up the base for the next NBC reality show??

Way too confusing to be a reality show.  Now that the house is sold and I can come up for air, let me see if I can remember all of the sordid details.

Buyer's title company ordered the municipal search from the town.  The town came back and said that they couldn't clear the municipals because of a "violation."  The assessor's office and the building department's office didn't agree about what kind of house I had.  Turns out the previous owners built the second floor addition illegally, and somehow it didn't come up when I bought the house.

Everyone in unison now says: "your title policy should protect you from that."  Go ahead -- everyone says it; everyone is wrong.  Title policy only guarantees that the title is clear; it doesn't guarantee the municipal search.  So now I have to have my "illegal addition" approved by the town.

Electric inspector came within the next couple of days, looked around, $85 later I have an "as built" electric permit, no problem.

Building inspector showed up the same day, looked around, and failed us because he couldn't find any windows big enough for "egress."  So I had to call a bunch of window places and eventually found one that had a big enough window in stock, which replaced a pair of windows.  Got a great deal on the window, and then they raped me on the installation.

Naturally I had to pay a fine for my "illegal" addition, in addition to the cost of the permit, before they would issue the Certificate of Occupancy.  All told, I'm out an additional $3,500 just to get the municipals cleared.  If anyone ever runs into the previous owner, one Mr. James A. Demos (now living in Connecticut), please stab him in the face with a Buick for me.   Thank you.

So ... the move out of the Mouse House.  Fun fun fun.

It's well documented in the Rants room how much trouble I had with the World's Worst Moving Company, many hours and over $1K over budget for that.  But at this point our belongings are moved into the garage of the new house.  They were kind enough to grant us access to the garage for storage until we are able to close on the purchase of the house.

Just waiting on a few minor documentation items to clear before we can close.  Looks good at this point.  It's kind of weird being homeless.  It's also kind of weird thinking about the old place and knowing it's not ours anymore.  It's a great house; we just outgrew it.  The people moving in are as happy to downsize as we are to upsize.

Wow!  Boy, when you guys finally move in, unpack, and sit out in the backyard for a beer, that's gonna be one great-tasting beer!

Let us know when the housewarming is  :-)

Is there an implied requirement that the Buick be on fire at the time of impact?

Interestingly, "stab <person> in the face with a Buick" is a phrase which came from the same person who popularized "die in a car fire" here. The ignited Buick is not a requirement but it scores bonus points.

In any case I am sufficiently frustrated with the previous owner of that house that either or both of those will do.

CLEAR TO CLOSE!

CLEAR TO F***ING CLOSE!!!!!

Flood insurance requirement is waived, too. That was going to be a hardship.

Now we just need to get a closing date set and move in before my wife and my mother kill each other...!
