Well I'm glad I canceled my car transaction. I got an estimated insurance quote (which I requested before I decided against buying the car), and it would've cost me more than $2800. Just for insurance!
We're all moving out of this place and it's gonna be uninhabited for 7 months after which my brother and his wife will be moving in, so we're packing up the entire house, shipping most of everything to Thailand, and generally taking everything apart. Woohoo!
