It's Kevin's birthday today and he wakes up and says "we're going to sell the house today... I can feel it in my water"... then we get a call at 11 am asking for a viewing at 1 pm. Of course, we said yes. A couple came and viewed the house. We sat across the road watching. They seemed rather thorough. We met them on the way out. She's from England and he's from Montreal. Interesting since Kevin is from England and I'm from Montreal. They seemed to really like the house.
We get a call at 4 pm with an offer. Nail-biting stuff. Back and forth... finally by 6 pm we agreed on a price! Whooot! We have sold the house. Yes! Yes! Yes! I cried a little. We close in 45 days... August 20th. We're really moving to Costa Rica! It's happening! I'm feeling a bit numb.
P.S. Since I last wrote, the Urban/Suburban crew came to film the episode. Kevin was able to watch the whole thing. I was at work, unfortunately. Kevin said everyone was really nice and professional and they were very tidy and put whatever they moved back in its place.
