We’re making some progress on our downsizing and relocation, though it’s a long, complicated process. We settled on our new townhouse in Reston, Virginia, last week.
Here’s a photo of our new home. It includes that one-car garage, which is a nice feature. Will we be able to cut back to one car? Only time will tell, but there is a bus stop on the corner. You can just see a bit of the deck out back, which has a view into some woods — even a glimpse of a lake.
So many arrangements had to be made before this could happen. Here we are looking a little dazed after the settlement, which itself required weeks of preparation. That’s our friend and indefatigable real estate agent, Evelyn Flynn, with us.
We kept wondering whether we had forgotten something, but when we checked the place out we found that the electricity, gas, and water were on.
Then the cable guys came, putting us back in touch with the world.
All we have to do now is get our house back north ready for the market. We’ve made a lot of progress on that too, but there is still much to be done. We’ll keep you posted.
ps. There are lots of kids in our new neighborhood, We’ll have trick or treaters for sure next Halloween — something we missed at our house in the country.
