Sooooooooo. I haven't written anything in a while. I feel like my life has become a whirlwind of paperwork, carpentry, computers and house hunting. In anticipation of getting ready for the big move Liz and I are trying to sell her house, rent mine, buy a new house, find a place to rent in New Paltz and finish up my job at VCU. So you can imagine how hard it has been to find time to sit down and write a few things on ye-old blog. I think we have successfully found a place to rent while Liz's place is on the market. When her place sells we will be able to buy a place up yonder. Until then we have been packing packing packing. I didn't realize how much crap we have until we started to box everything up.
Anyhoo, after dealing with my flooded basement Liz and I visited New Paltz one more time to find a place to live. I think we did it. There is a place we love that we are going to try and get. We pulled out of that other house. It was just way too expensive and WAY too small. We realized that we have too much stuff, hence the WAY too small. It seems like a perfect time to reduce the amount of crap that we own. So I have been recycling all of my old magazines, consolidating my DVD collection, getting rid of that old coffee table that was always a eyesore and just generally throwing away a lot of crap. We ordered our PODs which I am excited about. They come at the end of the month which will be nice. Once they show up we will be sending off the majority of our stuff into storage for a month or so until we can get settled. I will try and post some more when I can. Until then I will leave you with this photo of the "farmers stand" that is down the street from the house we are looking at. I put it in quotes because really its an open air grocery store.
