Back to Plan A

After the fifth (5th) (numero five-o) deal fell through on the sale of Maxwell House, Tomcat and I have decided to take the house off the market and ... move in there ourselves. That was the original plan over a year and half ago, before we decided we wanted to move to North Carolina. We'll just have to put the move to NC on hold for a year or two.

So now we will have another house to sell - the one we're living in now! Surely this one will sell. Won't it? We've had enough real estate drama to last a lifetime!

I called all the tenants in Maxwell House last night and asked them to move out by June 1st. I said I wasn't going to cry, but I did.

The good news is that we've already got a lot of stuff packed, but instead of moving across country, it'll be across town. The bad news is, we're still in Texas and summer's around the corner, just as soon as the three days of "Spring" are over.

We plan to keep Maxwell House a four-plex, which will be ... fun? interesting? ... because to go from, say, our living room to our bedroom, we'll have to go outside and come back in through another door. Ditto to go upstairs. Hahahahaaaaaaaaaa. And housework? Let's see... four kitchens, five bathrooms ...
