It's Official

September 24, 2009, 8:42 pm - James Farrer

It's official, with some really short notice and a few frantic phone calls, we were able to sign our papers tonight. We're really excited to finally be moving into our own home. We'll be moving Tuesday evening if anyone is available and we'd really appreciate any help you could give. Let me know if you need any more details.

It's Getting Closer

September 1, 2009, 10:43 pm - James Farrer

We did a walk through of the new house today. It's so close I'm starting to get really excited. Basically everything is done except a few cosmetic things and one or two not so cosmetic things (like two countertops being switched so the fridge doesn't fit). All in all it's looking really good. I'm excited to move in. Just a couple more weeks.

It sure is nice to be able to ride the motorcycle. It's very therapeutic for me. Work has been stressful as we've been trying to get a new system configured and out the door and there's a lot to be done. It also seems that about every other day there is some new political roadblock. I'm all for doing things the right way and following process, but sometimes it seems that the process is broke or at least too rigid. When that happens it feels like trying to get a kid to stop throwing a hysterical tantrum by taunting them with a piece of candy that they can't have. Really, it's probably not quite that bad, but it is certainly challenging and frustrating at times. 

Between the house and the work I'm worn out today. I think there was a bit of let down after the excitement. It feels good I think.

On another note, Alex got his first tooth this last week and learned how to crawl. I've got really cute kids. I love it when they are jumping with joy and running to give me a hug when I get home from work.
