Just an Update

Today my house goes back on the market. Unfortunately, all the money I just dumped into is not recoverable.

I just renovated this bathroom: some new carpets; painted some of the bedrooms; and had the underground oil tank abandoned.

On this coming Monday I've hired a contractor to fix the kitchen floor where I had to cut out some of the floor due to a pipe leak in the slab 3 years ago. (I've been hiding the patch under a throw rug.)

The good news is, maybe now I will get a buyer.

It is a wonderful neighborhood, great neighbors, no traffic and an excellent school district.

My daughter Jen and her dog moved out in the beginning of the month (I really miss the dog.....oh and her too!)

As a sidenote, my daughter and I went out to lunch last week. I got to meet her co-workers for the first time. The last time I went to her old workplace to meet her co-workers, about 2 years ago, they all were amazed at how young I looked. In fact, they would tease Jen and sing, "Jenny's Mom's Got It Going On" over and over to her until she left last year. I got nothing this time. Oh, how one ages in a mere 2 years!

So things are moving along, change is happening, decisions are being made, 26 year old kids are moving out, finally, thank you Lord. (One more to go.)

Thanks for your nice comment about my blouse. I could teach you to sew a little, but I'm no expert, LOL!

Wow, good luck with the house! That's a lot of work. I hope you get a big payoff.

I'm from NY, too. Long Island!

Renovations looking good! I feel like I've aged in the last two months! You're still cool!

Wow! That's great but not the part about not being able to recoop your money. That's terrible. But change is coming, kids are going, how happy you must feel!

Please God, let her buyer come through!
