Congrats Curmudgen! That's great!
But....have you heard the horrible story about how Nexxie didn't like it here? LOL


I too like objectivity but throwing out the same post from someone that hated Mo. is little help. If we are following these posts.....We've already read it!!!

Congratulations, Curmudgen! Now you've gone and done it!!! You have come here and conquered. How dare you find a home so quickly in Missouri!!! Sheesh, haven't you been paying attention to some of the posts around here? You aren't supposed to be happy............. yet! You need to wait awhile and then let the misery set in and begin the complaining. 'Oh woe is me....why did I ever move here....oh poor me. And
'they' tried to warn me.....Oh, well, just try to make the best of it'. lol... hahaha....

And again, congratulations on such a quick decision. Glad that you were helped by our wonderful LJ

Ya know, we tried to suffer and prolong things but the lovely Lake Junkie and the esteemed Mrs. Chilicook weren't havin' it. Loving it here was an absolute imperative!

Cool Hey Lake Junkie, I'm still hanging in here!

Curmudgeon, I too couldn't be happier for you, and you're going to do absolutely great as one of the Show Me State's newest residents! Here's something from California you're leaving behind, in case you or anyone else is interested: Hot Air Blog Archive California: You owe us taxes on those IOUs

It's getting....kinda surreal out here, and Mrs. Northbayeric and I are going to make a few more home improvements in the coming months, and then make another attempt to sell it in the spring. God be willing, we'll mostly follow in Curmudgeon's footsteps, or if we don't relocate quite as far as Missouri, then we think it could be Oklahoma--we're eyeballing the Tulsa suburbs of Sapulpa and Sand Springs.

It's really looking like California's totally in the redline area on the Humpty Dumpty Meter. Barring direct divine intervention, it doesn't look like it can be put back together again. We thought that our sharply declining real estate prices (a 3-2 house now fetches about $250K to $275K) might make it worthwhile to try buying one of them and staying put. No, Curmudgeon's got the right idea, and we're going to try again next year as we did in 2008 when we tried selling our house and got no takers.

But enough about me! It's time to welcome and celebrate Curmudgeon's arrival there, and successful evacuation from the (Fools?) Golden State!

The result of research, realistic expectations, and pre-approval!
