house is sold

After six months of waiting, a flurry of bidding activity on a sunday evening a few weekends ago, followed by more waiting, our house has finally been sold! The ink is dry on all the paperwork, and the new owners have the keys.

I no longer have to pay for electricity, gas, water, lawn service, insurance, homeowner's association dues, alarm permit, two mortgage payments, and whatever other home ownership related expenses might crop up.

It would have been nice to be able walk away from this with a wad of cash too, but the real estate market has not been terribly kind to us. But we're still in good shape. We can now start over in New Zealand with a fresh slate and make the best of it there.

Remember, the Insight is still for sale. If you know anybody who wants to drive the car with the best fuel efficiency available (about 60 mpg), let me know!
