    Exactly! It went in one afternoon.

    On another note: we JUST learned 10 minutes ago that our offer on the Grand Isle home was accepted!!!!

    Sounds like things are moving right along. Does this mean your house goes on the market now?

    Fantastic, Catherine. It's been a long road but you should be relieved that all of your hard work has paid off and now you can start enjoying your life as you wish.

    Lots of progress, catherine! Congratulations, especially on the Grand Isle house. Forward!

    We will start the process by attacking the stuff we need to get rid of. Then we'll make minor repairs/improvements. I'm not in a huge rush. I'm guessing we could hold on to our house for 18 months/two years, which isn't a problem for me. This area is appreciating and I'll just continue to bank equity.

    I know that financially it doesn't seem smart to hold on to two homes, but this is more of a "main residence" vs "summer residence" situation, no different than people who have a condo in Florida. But as time goes on and my desire or ability to work declines and I am no longer willing to support the NJ house (within 2-4 years), we'll sell, and by that time I'll have downsized and learned how to contain ourselves and our belongings in 700 square feet full time.

    I'm very excited, however. And my kids are over the moon about it.
