To the gym! Buy a house!

Nothing like having a non-functioning shower to inspire a person to go to the gym everyday! :)

We're in the process of re-caulking the bathtub, to stop water from going down and (further) rotting the wood around it. But in the meantime, to the gym for a shower...and while we're there, might as well work out!

It did get us thinking, though. If we're doing home maitainence, we probably should think about doing it on our own home. So I called a friend who's a mortgage broker and said "Where do we start?". So we'll see.

I think I won't plant the several hundred bulbs I ordered until we figure out what we're going to do.

In other news, I really don't want to be at work today. It's mostly sunny, warm and a perfect day to be out dinking around. Or even at home, with the windows wide open cleaning house.

Yay you! :)

That said, can I snag first dibs on your place when you move out? It's such a fabulous location, although I suppose the commute to the Eastside from there might be a bit of a bitch for Lee...

I'll certainly let you know. I have know idea how fast or slow this process will go, or when we'll actually get going!

And hey, if you move in, then I can take more time at retrieving my plants. :)

Exactly! :) And my interest, of course, is dependent upon Lee getting the Redmond job instead of the California one. As much as I love your place, I doubt I'd be able to make enough by myself in the short term to be able to afford it.

Oh, it is a bitch. And don't forget Meg's comment, “[further] rotting the wood.” I'm hoping to be out of there before this next caulking job fails. (I'll get it caulked just fine. It seems to break off after a month or two.)

Oh, I figure you guys would just give us a good idea of what we'd need to ask the landlord to fix before we moved in... or at least justify not hiking the rent! :)

Woo! Houseness!
I'll even help you move - but you have to chose between box-toting and plant-digging ;)

Good luck!

I'll help with a housewarming once you get settled :)
(keep October open for mine...)
