I had to go and post about doing a good job blogging...
Just to turn around and not blog for about two weeks.
I can't even use work as an excuse - I haven't been traveling the last few weeks.
But, we have been working on the house a lot.
Trying to take care of the pool...
And put a very small dent in the list of things to do in the next two years.
...Since I received the shock of my life.
I still don't really think it has set in.
Occasionally, I see a kid between the ages of two and nine and find myself tearing up realizing that we will miss a majority of the boys' lives between those ages.
Yeah - having a rough time with that one.
Don't foresee that changing between now and then.
We are pretty much in limbo as we don't know where we are going or when even.
I am 90% confident that we will end up in Michigan.
I am very unclear on the timing - though I think anywhere from spring 2016 to early 2017...
The only thing 100% sure is that we are moving somewhere...
That the house will be sold.
That we have a huge amount of work to do (though not the same work that we thought we would be doing).
We are looking for a house inspector as this house has never gone through one, even with three owners.
We have fixed a huge amount of bad things over the last six years, but who knows what is left to do.
I would rather know now and have time to fix things, than be surprised when a buyer is about to sign.
...To clean out area of the dryer vent that is leaving the house.
MBB had the ladder out to get some things done today and saw that we needed to clean out where the dryer vent exists the house.
Keep in mind that this is our new dryer vent that has been around for less than half of a year.
Needless to say, I was chuckling as the pile pulled out grew larger and larger.
Yes, that pile is pretty large - that is a small white trash can sitting behind the pile.
Looks like I should include that piece of maintenance/cleaning in my future book of things a new homeowner should know (along with my - change the furnace filter... Yes, there is one and if not changed in oh, five years will fall into the furnace)...
Glad to say that the project is complete and we now have three plants planted (two on the far side and one on this side). Glad that we will get at least two summers of fruit from this project before we have to say goodbye to this land.
