We have a due date.

January 18th.

This is a mere 97 days away.

In that time we have:

  • Terri's annual trip to Phoenix (4 days)
  • A concurrent visit from the in-laws 8 days)
  • Book group (gotta get reading!)
  • Halloween!
  • Dinner party with friends on 11/6
  • Veterans' Day (Lucy has the day off, so she and I are going to take the bus to the aquarium)
  • A San Jose trip (3 days)
  • Thanksgiving
  • Another book group
  • The Renton trio (that's us) annual dinner and night out to snow flake lane
  • Tree decorating
  • Christmas
  • New Years
  • Undecorating
  • Then 18 long days of packing and purging

House things that we have to do:

  • lock in the mortgage rate (anytime after 11/18)
  • schedule delivery of appliances
  • schedule apartment pack & move date
  • schedule delivery of new furniture
  • schedule delivery of items in storage
  • Schedule delivery of ikea things (or get them ourselves)

1/18/2016 seems so super far away, but it will go fast and I'm happy to have an actual date to plan.  Sadly, the 18th is a holiday, so we've asked to move the final close up to the previous Friday so we can use that weekend, but we'll see how that works out. If we absolutely cannot get into the house before the weekend, we may borrow a gigantic car (truck with a lid) and head to Oregon to pick up the fancy tv that Jason has picked out for his basement oasis. I'd rather things of that value just magically arrive at the house because I'm not keen on lifting and breaking such things, and I seriously doubt that the tax free nature of purchases in Oregon will offset gas and impulse purchases/
