November Update 2022

Turkey Tracks

Hello Everyone!

The house has a contract, but we are in the middle of the “due diligence” week, so things won’t be “firm” until after the required 7 working days are over on the 15th. At that time, the buyers will have to put down some earnest money that they would lose if they back out of the contract.

The formal inspection meeting is tomorrow afternoon.

The closing is scheduled for December 13th. The movers are coming December 7-8. And I will pick up my two sons at the Portland airport on the morning of the 9th, and we will begin the drive to Charleston, arriving at the latest on Sunday the 11th.

The family has been combing Charleston County for a house for me since this house was listed, and they and my agent Lisa Barkley found “my house” last week. I put a contingency contract on it, and it will also close on December 13th. I will be present for that closing, and a local lawyer here will represent me in Maine. The house is new and has all the spaces I’ll need for my quilting/sewing passion. As soon as the due diligence week is done and if all goes well, I’ll schedule the movers for the Portland to Charleston leg.

Jackpot is thriving with his foster caregiver and his new best buddy, her dog Dino. He is now also getting lots of running exercise, which he needed.

After getting some sort of serious gastro illness, which made me not want to eat and which gifted me with DIL Tami flying in to help me–alongside my homeopath who brought me food, remedies, and treatments–I am recovered and now am plugging along with what has to be done here and making great progress too. I can’t really tear up the house until the “due diligence” is over on the 15th.

So now, all fingers and toes are crossed that all continues to fall into place.

Send me loads of good luck, good energy, good prayers, good wishes, and good thoughts.

  1. Wow, life has certainly sped up for you right now. I am so happy things seem to be working out well with the sale of your house and the purchase of a new one. Have you been able to actually see the new house or just pictures of it? I am glad Jackpot is in a good situation also. I am looking forward to reading about your new situation when you get all settled in and will be praying for you over the next several weeks that all will go well.

  2. So glad you are feeling better! May all your plans fall nicely into place, and may this big life change bring you much joy!

  3. Oh, Louisa, I am so sorry to see you leave us! Of course, I had no idea you had such grand plans in the making…my fault for not keeping in touch. I wish you the very best on this next exciting (and I’m assured beautiful) phase of your life…live oaks and the sea, what a wonderful combination. I will miss you and the times we did have all together.

  4. Wishing you the best. I’m sure being closer to family will be a blessing for all of you. The warmer weather is also a plus.

  5. Best wishes, Louisa, on your move and transition. How wonderful to have two such willing and supportive sons to expedite all this. Take care.

  6. Happy to hear your health has returned, Louisa .
    Jackpot looks happy and pooped!
    Best wishes for a smooth transition to the warm climate.

  7. You are going to be greatly missed by many of us here in Maine, but this as you said “I will know when the time is right”. I believe that, that time came and things have fallen into place fairly quickly for selling a house and re locating in under six months.
    Enjoy your next chapter!!

  8. Wonderful! And congratulations! You have a beautiful home. The buyer will so enjoy living there. Glad you are feeling better, too. Keep your updates coming when there is time. Each one is appreciated.
