Boxes, and...Boxes...

Well, the packing has taken a slightly more serious turn now. The problem now is simply real estate -- where to put all the damn boxes. smile

Anyway, it's a necessary evil, and we're dealing with it as anticipated.

On a related note, we've tentatively set our closing date to June 30 in the early afternoon. This seems to work so far for everyone involved, so pending any delays...


I've wanted to do this for some time now, but never took the advantage. I took the car in for an oil change today...and as a 'loaner' car, I test drove a 2003 Hummer H2, for the day. smile It is one of those things that I have no true desire to actually own but would rather say I've had the opportunity to grace.

It's quite like that which I think driving a tank would be. It was actually quite fun, and in Morris, a definite head-turner. Overall, I have to say that I had a lot of fun with it, if for nothing more than just showing it off to other people who had similar curiosities as mine. So, I can scratch that off the list of things to do -- drive an H2. Hey, that rhymed!

Anyway, until next time...

Busy, yet Quiet

The last week seemed to fly by due the busy schedule; yet it was relatively quiet as far as the events which took place (for the most part).

The House!

Well, as of mid-last week, the appraisal had been done on the house; Friday we found out that it came through without any problems. This means that things are really starting to wrap up in the process. It was also a huge relief, since that would have been the last major barrier in the process. So, as of this time, we've set a tentative closing date of around July 1. While I haven't heard what the exact date is as of today, in discussing appropriate dates, it seemed the most logical for all parties involved.

So, that's a nearly-complete thing. And there will be a newly-installed septic system to boot ready to go when we close.

Rick the Brick

The last week was Vacation Bible School at church, and I happened to be involved with the daily skit work. Fortunately, it was minimally-invasive and went smoothly. It was also a pretty good time returning to the stage, so to speak. I played Rick the Brick and was costumed in a large cardboard box which was something I'd never done that made it cool as well. And the kids liked it, so that makes it all worthwhile.

Aside from that...'s time to start packing up seriously now and get ready to go. I am fairly sure that my online-ness will be limited for at least the next upcoming month. Partially due to lack of service. I am intending to go with the satellite internet option for a few reasons I won't explain right here, but when I get that hooked up (and find someone to do it) is something else entirely. I'm also intending on disconnecting phone/Internet/cable service here on or around July 1, so we'll see what happens... smile

Until next time...
