We close later this month, and move in early May (and I graduate a week later!). My partner calmly broke the news to his ex once we got a loan commitment (who of course was not surprised because their kid had been going on and on about it for weeks, even as we kept telling her nothing's written in stone). She's taking it well at this point--we'll see.

But, overall, so far, so good...thanks for asking!

We'll be self-moving the "stuff" (because that way, I can be lax about packing--I can throw clothes, towels, sheets, and shoes into garbage bags if I move them myself, and just stack dishes in a box--the new place is a mile from the old place--but movers insist on real boxes, lots of packing material, etc.) but hiring movers for the furniture, so the process itself isn't too bad. Our current place is, not surprisingly, a complete disaster, but that's par for the course...

When you're dealing with someone like that, and I know from experience, it can be pretty wearying to always be anticipating their response. It's good to anticipate it to a certain extent,then stop thinking about it until it happens. And sometimes. .. . it doesn't happen the way you assume, but sometimes--sometimes--even better!
Good luck with your move. We found that when we had a house, my stepkids loved it and seemed to get the sense of belonging that comes from decorating.
