    so we accepted an offer on the house...

    I just texted the Realtor a few minutes ago. We accepted an offer on the house after quite a bit of back and forth for three or four days.

    Next up... home inspection and planning a trip to Colorado to look at houses, hospitals for my wife to work at and other stuff.

    Back from Colorado and after looking at 25 houses in two days with a Realtor, we put a bid on one yesterday, heard back that they are VERY close to accepting and we came back today with what they said would work. Hopefully I'll know today.



    Move date in about four weeks, as of now.

    Thanks!

    She had an interview on Thurs and had an offer within an hour. She had another on Fri and they said she'll find out on Monday. Prospects are very good.

    We'll be in Parker, CO.

    I know you've always wanted to move out there so that's totally awesome! I have a cousin that lives out there in the Washington Park area of Denver and she absolutely loves it as well.

    Cool

    I was stationed in Aurora CO back in 1989-1991 and enjoyed every minute I spent there...one of my fondest weekend memories was the BUCKSNORT Saloon! Mountain music, great people and last, but not least...COLD BEER!

    Good Luck to you and the family, BMED

    PS, I spent almost every weekend somewhere in the Mountains, either camping or exploring a new town...AWESOME place to live!
