Alas, we no longer have a home in the States. We have moved to Australia.

Yes, we finally sold our house back in Atlanta! It took 18 months and we suffered a huge loss, but the final transaction took place last Friday. In the days before the closing I was up late making panicky calls to figure out how to move enough cash from our account to cover the balance at the lawyer's office. I was told repeatedly that I should wire the money, but I couldn't do this without going to my bank in the States in person. Then I ran into some maximum daily limits that stretched the transaction over three days. I shudder when I think of all the fees I paid in my haste to get this done in time.
