I love Friday the 13th!

Looks like Friday the 13th will be our new favorite day...that's the day escrow is supposed to close!

Removal of escrow contingencies was delayed for a week due to the banks being overwhelmed by so many people refinancing their homes that it took longer for our buyers to get final loan approval. This added an extra week of mild stress as we waited for the good word, but now we are on the downhill slide!

When escrow closes and the money is in the bank, we give two-week notice at work, and are out of the house on August 2 or 3. It's amazing to think I only have 3 MORE WEEKS of work left!

We are going through our belongings a little every day; determining what goes in storage (art mostly), what will go in the RV, what goes to my daughter, and the rest is for sale or donation.

You really don't have a good feel for how much stuff you own until you have to go through every single piece of it and make a decision. With each item I eliminate from my life, I feel lighter and free-er and ready for anything!

Since obtaining Oregon residency is supposed to take about 60 days, we've got a little time to fill before we buy the truck and trailer. The current plan is to stay with my daughter and SIL for a week or so at their home in Southern Oregon; then we have a house sitting gig in Portland for 8 days covering Labor Day; we'd also like to take the Arcic Fox manufacturing tour at their headquarters in La Grande, OR where we will see our future home being built (or one just like it).

Metamorphosis is awesome!
