We're really moving

Sure the house is smaller.  But there are three acres of land.  And it's 15 minutes from work, 10 minutes from Princeton, NJ, and 15 minutes from the train to NYC.  Also, it's just down the street from the Delaware and Raritan Canal State park and tons of hiking trails. 

We sold our house in a couple of weeks, but then the buyer backed out.  In less than two weeks, we sold it again.  This time for sale price.  Staging helped, but really we think the price was the main reason. 

All I know is damn.  Jersey is expensive.

I still have to fix a few things here before we can officially sell it (broken windows replaced, sidewalk fixed, new gutter on the garage, etc.)  But we are pretty much all done here.  It looks like we will be in the new place by Thanksgiving.  That's not all that far off.  Time to start packing!
