Remarkable You

My wife, Linda, is tired of hearing me tell this story. Which is precisely the reason I’m about to tell it to you… Back in mid-summer we ordered a new couch for our spare bedroom. A couple of weeks ago, the store emailed to say it was ready and would be delivered that weekend. Sure enough, around 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning the doorbell rang.

I Can See Clearly Now

As of this morning, my house is officially on the market. (Please buy it.) We’ve lived here for nearly 11 years, and with our youngest child due to graduate from high school in June, my wife Linda and I have decided to downsize to something smaller. As you might imagine, we’ve spent the past several months getting our house “ready,” a term which, unfortunately, correlates highly with “expensive.” Listen To This Post Examples include, granite countertops for the master bath, […] Click to read more…
