It has come around so quickly. What will happen if you haven't sold before it's time to go? Do you leave it in the hands of your agent?
Sure. The agent can handle everything. There really is no rush to sell it. The last time we moved to Thailand, we didn't even bother to sell it, just rented it out with option to buy. But we figure this will be 'the last move.' No need to keep the condo in Japan. If in fact we do move again, it would be to Bali or some other island in the western south Pacific. Perhaps Palau? It's the world's #1 dive location. (Well, tied for #1 with the Red Sea.) Somewhere where the water is warm, the coral reefs still full of fish, and life is laid back. There's enough money in the bank to cover us if we're careful, money still comes in from my writing and photography and my wife's stock market trading (I don't know HOW the hell she does it... drips and drabs but it adds up quickly,) that we don't 'need' the money from the condo sale. That would just give us some extra 'play money.' We've been talking about another summer spent motorcycle touring in the Alps and southern Europe... Who knows?

We've been virtually 'giving away' the contents of the condo, selling the washer/dryer for $50, the fridge for $50, etc. just to be sure to get them out of the house before we move. We actually did give away the sofa and the dinning room table and chairs! Everything was bought new just a few years ago, and should sell for a few hundred, but we just want it out... now! But we sold everything with the proviso that people not pick them up until a few days before we leave, so we can live comfortably for the rest of the month. We'll stay in a hotel for the final two days. Things really ARE moving quickly... but there is always time for more tea! I'm on my third mug already and it's just 10am! And... the doorbell should ring any minute now with the agent and prospective buyers....

Sounds great Stitchawl! Must be exciting, and tiring at the same time!

Mid-afternoon tea break. An extra-smokey Lapsang Souchong from McNultey's of New York. Just right for a rainy day. Long walks in the rain may be nice for young lovers but they suck for exercising...

It's very exciting. And you're right, very tiring. I've increased my morning and afternoon meditations to 30 minutes each instead of 20, and that helps keep the energy levels up and keeping down the stress. There are a million and six different things to juggle, and the timing needs to come out right. No second chances. But no problems... only challenges! It's like the man said; 'it's not how many times you get knocked down that matters. It's how many times you get back up.'

Sounds like things are going well, Stitchawl!

In my cup: a toothbrush. It's late (early), even by my standards. Time for bed.

Best wishes for the move to Thailand, Stichawl. A better climate and all...that must be so good. I visited it some 10 years ago and really liked it.

(today I almost drowned in the rain, on my bicycle)
In my cup: cold Rooibos cinnamon/orange

Waking up slowly on a Saturday morning with cranberry juice in my glass ... and howling hungry cats milling about my feet .... which may soon result in cranberry juice in their bowls ....

Zeke's Coffee Hippie Blend. Kind of boring but I'll try more of the brand. They are fair trade and that is important to me.

Storm moving in, it's kind of "soft" right now, but looks like it will be positively dumping down tomorrow when I have to drive down to Redmond. Not fair, there's been a high sitting over the west coast for 2 weeks, and it finally disappears when I have a long drive that would have been much nicer with the top down. Sigh.

Lapsang Souchong in my cup. That kind of day.

Got caught in a mini-monsoon on our trip to the grocery store.

Home in steamy, humid air - sipping a Guinness.

I did and came home with a car full of goodies and gifts!
I am so proud of the person he became and had a great time seeing all the changes to the house and yard.

I am home, pleasantly tired, and settling in with my chocolate strawberries and a cup of coffee (now that it has cooled down quite a bit).

Congrats to you; being proud of your son and all.

(multitasking: making the photoalbum of my journey on the PC, thinking about going to Ethiopia next year and watching the documentary "The Eagles, to the limit' on my iPad. Very nice. 95 minutes of music and talks)
