Take the plunge???

We have until next Thursday at 4:15pm to decide whether or not we want to move. Yikes, that's a lot of pressure. I won't go into too much detail, but we found a beautiful townhouse, just 12 miles outside of the city. That's a 20-25 minute drive in to work, 30 in bad traffic. I get all excited just thinking about that.

We thought these places might be a little out of our price range, but thanks to my promotion, I'll be able to cover the mortgage difference easily. Phew. Our closing date is scheduled to be November 7th, which is still so far away. But that's kind of good since we haven't sold our house yet. That should give us plenty of time...I hope.

Here's what the Phase I townhomes look like. Ours will be a little bit different. Oh, and we're going to get an end unit. Woohoo for peace and quiet! (Let me just mention that we got a new neighbor downstairs and it hasn't been pleasant. He's a nice kid, but he doesn't realize that playing the guitar and keyboard at midnight on a work night isn't really acceptable in a condo.)

The townhouses are in Cinnaminson, NJ and are located right along the Delaware River. Here's where they'll be built. You can see the river back there. Everything looks kind of dead right now, but I can't wait to see it in the spring.

I think this is going to be a great community when it's completed. They are planning all the usual community things, like a pool, tennis courts, clubhouse, etc., as well as a promenade along the river and some little shops. There's also a brand new shopping center being built 2.5 miles away with a grocery store, Office Max, banks, etc.

I am so excited about having brand new, never used bathrooms. And a pantry! And a garage! And a gas fireplace! And two walk-in closets! Ahhhhhh. I wish I didn't have to wait until November!!!
