8 days out

Approximately 8 days from now I should be sitting on a 747 in San Francisco, waiting for takeoff. Packing is well underway, however I would consider it slightly behind schedule. Taking a break from packing to listen to My buddy Harold (OBH), check email, and figure out really how far behind I am. I would love to hear feedback on the OBH tunes. I think the airplane ride is going to be my first opportunity to bring the web page up to its final form.... hoped to knock it out this week, but it ain't gonna happen. ....still gotta paint that crown molding.


Major Construction Complete

It is amazing the home improvements you can knock out with a crew of 5 people working. My parents, sister, and her friend came into town Saturday afternoon and left out Sunday afternoon. They weren't here long, but the paint flew and the pipes connected... I now have 2.5 functional bathrooms again- the American dream come true. About all that remains is to paint 22' of pre-primed crown molding and hang a door back on its hinges and procure and install two mirrors, and .... I'm sure to be forgetting something else. All this work in the name of market value. The more the better. First time buyers stay away- I want your empty nest, downsizing, and wealthy parents as buyers.

I put some furniture on Craigslist. Never sold anything on there, but bought some funky, 70's looking chairs using Craigslist. The lady selling them lived on a hill in LA, the view was good, but I don't remember specifics, so it was probably just scenic LA smog. I'll be sure to update with couch selling details. ... The New Zealand blog will be more interesting than this, I promise.
