big stuff

The sale of Mom’s house closed on Wednesday. Yesterday.

Today we met with the Fishers and settled on a price of €225,000 for the house. Just a verbal agreement for now, but DrBob and I are very Klingon about our promises, so unless the Fishers back out, it’ll go ahead. We’ll see the tax guy on Tuesday and the notary on Wednesday. We’ll give them the down-payment (€50,000) as soon as we can, at which point they’ll hand over the house key.

I’ve promised to give somebody a WHOLE LOT of money. Augh. Is it time to freak out yet?
