A New Chapter

Our house in Arizona has sold. The final deal is closed. We didn't make as much as we had hoped but we didn't lose anything. A burden, a weight has been lifted. The weight of paying rent here and mortgage (Mortgage- Etymology: Middle English morgage, from Anglo-French mortgage, from mort dead (from Latin mortuus) + gage ) there. And from paying utilities on both. And, although I do not miss the desert heat and my 30 mile commute to work, I do miss my house. It was a fine house, a new house, a house we put work into. A place we called home. It was ours to do with as we felt. The door is closed.

Now the quest for a house here in Seattle begins. And with it a new chapter in our life. We will find a house here. We will purchase, invest in, live in and love in our new home.

Und das ist alles!

Ah let's see, been a little while. I'll start with the two new episodes of the new Battlestar Galactia. So far we are happy with both.

We had our forth wedding anniversary. We went out to dinner. Christine got to have a lottle shopping spree and I got a new digital camera. It's a Nikon D80 and so far I'm extremely happy with it. I was going to buy a Cannon but with this camera I can use my lenses from my old Nikon 35 mm SLR. Photography is another of the many hobbies I have. My wife and her family say I should sell my photos so I may give it a shot.

The weather actually behaved normally again with a few days of rain and fog. Looks like the season is here. Finally.

Our house is still in the process of being sold but everything seems to be going as planned.

On the SCUBA side a co-worker and I have been talking about doing a local dive but I don't know if it will ever happen. Eric and I are still planning on Cozumel in January.

Und das ist alles.

The Sale of Our House.

Well I'm not sure I want to write this for fear of jinxing the whole thing but for my birthday I think we got a buyer for our house in AZ. Our real estate agent sent us some forms (buyers offer) and we all signed on them. The buyer wants to close on the 20th of October. I miss our house. I hate being back in an apartment again. Hopefully everything goes smooth and soon we will be buying our second house, here, in Seattle!
