This and that..

We've been busy this week..
all towards that light at the end of the tunnel.

  • My house is the cover story in the local newspaper insert 'Homes'. Hit newstands yesterday, and will be in the Sunday paper. Hopefully it will generate more interest!

  • Put some things on Craigslist - two unused cell phones, fishing poles, an elliptical, and slide projector & trays. One cell phone, and the fishing poles sold. Does anyone use slide projectors anymore? :)
  • George removed the bed liner from his 'new' truck and washed out the bed. He's fanatical about his vehicles (good for him!). He applied armor-all to the whole liner. It shines! Nothing will stick to it now!
  • Getting ready to plan our next vacation. We're flying out to California to be with my parents and older son Adam, for the Thanksgiving holiday. Yay! Sun and warmth for the holiday will be nice. Just keeping our fingers crossed that we don't have a nightmare flight and get stuck in Chicago again.
We're having a beautiful, sunny, warm Indian summer weekend. 
Good time to do some yard work.
Some even put up their Christmas lights when it's nice out like this. 
Ummm..not yet.
We usually put them up the weekend after Thanksgiving,
but since we'll be in California,
it'll have to wait a few weeks.


  1. Those holiday flights are so unpredictable. Our boys are flying to meet us in Vegas Dec. 20th. Makes me nervous.

  2. Always good to have as much exposure as possible when selling a house. We sold a few things on Craigslist. Can't imagine much of a market for a slide projector, however.

  3. wow..what a way to sell a house!..front page news!!

  4. actually sold my slide projector on craigslist and my turntable so keep trying...

  5. we have had our house on the market, but offers have been low and conditions for occupancy not to our liking. We have decided to rent till spring, and go off on our merry way. We are excited, but nervous! We realized there will never be a 'right time' to go, so here we do go!

    Best of luck to you in the housing market, very stressful but the house looks lovely!

  6. Wow! Is that really your house you have in the picture? It's beautiful!! I bet it has a lot of history.
