    Thumbs up CF Moving! - Well Kind Of

    Well we've lived in our house for three years exactly today so it's fitting that we made a contingent offer on a new place today (contingent on selling our current house). We currently live in a nice split-level house in Huxley but being as my wife and I both work in West Des Moines, we wanted to move to Ankeny where we spend a lot of our free time and where the commute's about 15 minutes shorter each way. Well today we made an offer on a very nice townhouse that will actually be less expensive but still provide us with everything we need.

    While it might appear to be a down-grade to move from a house with a big yard to a townhouse, to us it makes a lot of sense. With the time I put in online and the commute we have to make each day, it seems much more logical to us not to have to worry about all the tasks and expenditures that go along with owning a house and yard. By moving to a brand-new townhouse, we're getting a worry-free place but also getting a place to help save money. Also, the townhouse is actually incredibly nice and only has one unit next to it, not the typical row-house type. It overlooks Otter Creak to boot!

    So if any body's looking to move to Huxley and is interested, let me know. We're obviously eager to get the house officially on the market and hope to get some quick interest. So spread the word, it's a great deal on a great house!

    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Townhouse? Following in your big sister's footsteps huh? Jeremy, I believe that you have reached an age that you no longer have to mimic your sister's actions, it's OK to be your own self. If Angie jumped off a bridge, would you? Hopefully not, but since you are copying Ang and her townhouse, well..for the sake of CF, let's hope she never jumps off that bridge.

    Here's to a quick sale of your old house. Congrats and good luck.

    Well, thanks for telling your family first...

    Good luck selling the house! It's a great house, so I'm sure it will sell quickly.

    Hey congrats, you are right down the street from me! Well maybe that is not such a good thing for you. And when I say right down the street, I mean like down the street a few miles.

    Re: CF Moving! - Well Kind Of

    I apologize guys for not being on the site much as of late. The news is incredibly slow and we have had a sh** load of stuff to do to get the house ready to show. I can't believe all the stuff we've done but we haven't even sat down, let alone had time to post much. I'll get through all this stuff in the "real world" and be back to being on the site all the time when done. SORRY!
