The moving list requiring a legal pad is now six bullet points on a notepad. Am I ready to decorate an aircraft carrier and declare “mission accomplished” per George Bush? Hardly. The short sale drama continues as evidenced by frequent visits to my new BFF: the Staples fax machine. The “closing date” remains September 30th, but short sales are tricky.

I do know that a naval ship won’t be involved.
