I’d been avoiding saying anything much on the internet while we were in the process of buying the house. We were remarkably fortunate that the sellers accepted our offer, and there were only a few minor snags along the way. (There was a truly epic round of Extreme Phone Tag with the mortgage company.)

The sellers have a rent-back for the next few weeks, so we won’t be moving until some time in September. We’ll still be in San Diego County but no longer in the city of San Diego. For what we paid for this house, you could buy something less than half the size, on 1/8 as much land, and in much worse shape in my current neighborhood.

I celebrated today by having avocado toast delivered. avocado toast
