December 2005



It was just pointed out to me a little bit ago (I did not remember on my own) that today was an anniversary day. I tried to check the exact one year date and time, what with the whole year is 365.242198781 days, not what the calendar actually says thing, but there was the little problem that neither Brandy nor I remember the exact time of the event. But just guessing, it still puts the anniversary today. Most likely sometime in the next hour or so. So I shall post…

It has been exactly one year since we closed on the house here in Palm Bay.

The picture above is from the golf course out back. Note the screen is finally on the house. Woo!

Anyway we still love the house, but it has not been trouble free. With the unmet expectations at work finances were always tighter than what we expected. The screen destroyed by the hurricanes in 2004 was finally fully replaced just last month (and the contractors did not do a perfect job). We have fought with roofers over a persistant leak on the flat roof over the lanai. And because the screen wasn’t up we didn’t use the pool as much as we thought. Oh, and just today after struggling with various people to get the pool heater up and running for Cynthia’s visit we were informed that the propane tanks and lines and maybe the heater itself needs to be replaced. (Serves us right for not even looking at the heater until a couple weeks ago.) Anyway, all that fun sort of house owner stuff. So, we’re ready to move on and find something nice, albeit a bit smaller and with no pool no doubt, in Seattle.

Which brings us to… what was the one significant thing I did today, on this one year anniversary? I talked to the relocation coordinator that has been assigned to me to help get this place sold. Just the preliminaries. We’ll have a real meeting with him Monday.

Perfect timing, eh? :-)
