The Cat Pee House Is Ours!

What a busy week! And it's only Wednesday! I have been cheerfully eating my weight in crap and that has got to stop. Aside from the weight gain which is sure to happen I feel vaguely nauseous, tired and short tempered all the time and I'm pretty sure it's because I've been eating nothing but fat and sugar for a week. Liz ended up leaving a little early on Sunday - we had some lookers which screwed up the day a bit, not too bad though. David and I spent the afternoon doing the weekly shopping and then I left a little early Monday morning because I knew it would be a busy day. It was a very long day - the day you close on a house is nerve wracking whether you're there or not - David told me yesterday that actually there had been a huge screw up with the deed and there was a flurry of phone calls and running about so we did have the usual Eleventh Hour - but thankfully I didn't know about it until after it happened. The closing after that went smoothly and we became home owners right on schedule. I left work at 4 pm and drove to Pittston, then got in Laurie's car and we drove to State College. We had signed up for a coding seminar months ago and of course it fell on the same day we were closing - there is nothing like working 12 hours and driving for 2 mores when you're stressed out and sleep deprived The trip was fun, Laurie and I get along very well so we had a good time and actually learned stuff! We got stuck in traffic on the way there which was miserable but made good time on the way back which was not. David is busy, Harry is working on his house too and they are both going green. The good thing about the green is you can save a lot of money - David has been shopping at Green Demolition - they recover kitchens and stuff from demolitions and foreclosures and refurbish it, and then resell at a low price. David and Harry are going half on some other stuff so we should be able to rehab this house under budget. David already has the kitchen gutted and has taken down the wall that's saturated with cat pee - it was a total loss and he said there was no way to save it. We will most likely rent this place for the winter which is ok, if it works out it could be another source of income - and who would say no to that?
