Home sale update
Well, we finally sold our house, after dropping the price again, and had to look for a new house. We love our neighborhood because of the stores in the big nearby mall and other businesses and restaurants so we concentrated our search here and found one close enough; it's on the other side of the mall, and it will make our northward treks longer, but it meets our needs. Okay, it needs work inside and out, including fencing and landscaping.
The home inspection there gave us a list of fixes needed, but the sellers will take care of some of them, and our contractor for the remodeling will catch the rest. We're looking forward to the move, but--after getting some mover estimates--we see that we will need to get rid of more stuff. We'll be having another garage/moving sale next month...
Our home inspection here, btw, passed with flying colors. Our remodeling and maintenance helped.
I've been writing stories since I was a kid. My stories and articles have been published in print magazines, webzines, and anthologies; and my SF has been published in two audiobooks, including Sugar Time. My books include Strike Three, Detour Trail; Building a Cool House for Hot Times without Scorching the Pocketbook; a children's book, Why Won't Anyone Play with Me?; two story collections:The Doorway and Other Stories (SF) and Aliens, Animals, and Adventure; and four e-books: Hidebound, Pretty Pink Planet, Hot Yellow Planet, and Remodeling: Buying and Updating a Foreclosure. I live in Florida with Blizzard the Snow Princess and Bryn the Flying Corgi.
