Yesterday we learned that the seller accepted the contract and countersigned, thereby executing it. Sounds final, right? Au contraire, mon frère! There's still a little matter of everything else – but at least now the ball is rolling. We need to get a large chunk 0' change over to our agent's title company at the beginning of next week, and there is a house inspection pending for mid-day on Saturday. So we'll see about the presence of mold, rot, mice, lice, rice, stoats, oats, goats, termites, and crud. The roof will be inspected as will the basement, which will be amusing to watch as there's no basement in this house. None of the houses around here have basements, for a very good reason: dig six feet down or so, and the hole starts filling up with water! And a hole that's filled with water will soon attract alligators. Because this is south Florida, and that's what happens.

Assuming the place gets a clean bill of health, we move on to the next step, XXXX. I had to put Xs there because I'm not sure what the next step is going to be. I'm sure someone will tell me, though. And when I learn what it is, you'll learn as well, gentile reader, because we're all in this together, for better or for worse.

ETA: Home inspection has been pushed to Monday. Que sera, sera. Everyone's going to have to wait for the next thrilling installment of ... CONFESSIONS!
