Accelerate

'Tis interesting times to live in, as far as getting pre-approved for a loan, hauling ass down to Lockhart to check out potential properties with a realtor, and basically being ready to make an offer and buy a house, all within the span of twenty-four hours. Whee...

We've pretty much settled on the house we want, 2000 sq ft. 4-2 with a half-acre lot, built in 1950, with all sorts of cool built-ins and cabinets. The foundation needs leveling, hardwood floors need to be refinished, and much painting everywhere, but it's in reasonably good shape. The yard is huge but is pretty much a blank slate, as the existing landscaping pretty much consists of a couple of shrubs out front.

Current plan is to buy the thing very soon but spend a month or two trying to get most of the burly work done, before making the permanent move and renting out our current house. Which is nice on assorted accounts, as far as making the move in a more relaxed fashion, plus being able to get much work done without dealing with the hassle of doing it in an occupied house, etc.

Due to much running around related to the above, not much to relate on the degenerate side. I'm chipping away at a few bonuses here and there but have barely had time to play the last few days. Working on a longer post but not quite there yet, as work and life keep interfering. Damn you, work and life. Or, you know, something like that...

If you are seriously moving to BFE, you better make as damn many home games as is possible before then!!
