My move is down to the wire now. The van arrives here on 25 May and the closing on my New York apartment is set for a few days later. I’ll be “homeless” for awhile. If that state lasts longer than a couple of weeks, I’ll stay with friends in rural Pennsylvania. If it is shorter, Ollie the cat and I will sleep on a friend’s sofa here in New York City.
In an hour, I’ll be off to Maine for the fifth time to look at properties and if all goes according to plan, I will return in a few days with a contract on one.
If you are so inclined, I would appreciate the lighting of candles, doing odd things with eye of newt and leg of toad, or whatever else it is you might do to influence the housing gods. I don’t relish a lengthy period of homelessness or intrusion upon kindly friends.
While I’m gone, several fellow bloggers have graciously agreed to fill in with guest blogs. Please treat them as agreeably as you always have in the past, leave them lots of comments and visit their blogs. That snazzy new laptop I ordered may not have arrived yet, but there’s an internet café in Portland and I’ll check in a couple of times.
See you later in the week…
