Nightmare Over -- House Sold
Yes -- it finally happened. The buyer in my house sale came back from Las Vegas and completed the sale. I was in Las Vegas at the time, so my wife took care of signing all the papers, which was probably a good thing. I was not sure if I could have been civil after the buyer's lame last-minute wavering on the purchase.

So ... outside of paying a couple of final utility bills, I am done! Although I had to make some financial adjustments due to the 13 months the house was on the market and the lower-than-anticipated selling price, it sure feels good to be out from under it. Thank goodness that my wife and I both have good jobs and could absorb the costs. On the other hand, we did sell the house for over 40% more than we paid for it, so I guess things could have been worse. At least the nightmare is over.
