Moving(or at least our mortgage bank is)

Monday afternoon, we finalized the purchase of our very first chunk of Long Island — a house and a quarter-or-so acre of land about two miles from Long Island Sound.

I just wanted to thank everyone for your emails and blog comments of congratulations and encouragement. We’re excited, anxious, happy, scared and MOVING.

We’ve started by moving a few car loads (mostly kitchen stuff of course) and then this Saturday is the official moving day. We have great friends and a half dozen or so of them are coming to help.

It’s a crazy time leading up to the holidays, but I’ll try to post as much as I can.

Last night, Nena and I toasted our new house with a bottle of Wolffer Estate 2002 Pinot Noir ($50). (Read my previous review) It’s one of our favorite local pinots…if only we could afford to drink it more often.
