Getting closer




It's almost Aug 1st. We are suppose to be getting the building signed over to us on that date. We were suppose to get it July 1st. But, john was dragging his feet about clearing it out. I walked down yesterday and noticed 2 LARGE Dumpsters. One was half full. Man oh man, i was jumping for joy. Bill is not as excited as i am. Poor guy, i think he just sees work.


In an earlier post i mentioned we are buying a commercial building in my town of Lone Tree.


We are renovating it. A large apartment upstairs and a fabulous art studio for me up front and a "Man cave" in the back for bill. I am ready to get my hands dirty. Brush up and also learn some carpentry skills. I've already got an arm with poison ivy. I was weeding in the back, i should say whacking, pulling, ripping out vegetation growing rampant in the back. I keeping thinking how i can transform this awful tangled mess into something cool.

I went back til I found the post of the building... Jan. 26, 2009, I believe... If I were you, I would be jumping out of my skin with excitement... especially if my husband was gun-ho about it too! I'm so happy for you and yes, classes please!! I'm a big fan of that. Best of Luck with your little treasure in brick...

Hey Cathie,
I knew you would love the 'pet cemetery', we love our critters as family, thanks for the 'story telling' comment. It's quite a life, isn't it.... Not just mine, but all of ours...
Bill reminds me of John, how'd we get sooo lucky?
