March fundraiser: late start, but then you need recall marijuana is now legal in Colorado.
So, like, you know.
Anyway, here’s the scoop. My wife and I decided we needed more space, part of which is because my wife wants her mother to move here from Utah to live with us and her grand kids. We were able to find a wonderful house, which breaks ground sometime in the next couple weeks, that should be finished by August or September.
Fortunately, the house is only about 3 minutes from our current home, and is actually closer to Satchel’s school (though a bit farther away from wrestling practice, which right now is essentially at the entrance to our subdivision). The only downside is, we wanted a specific cul-de-sac lot which were told wasn’t going to be released for another couple of years, so as we were preparing to walk away and find something else, we were shocked (as was the sales rep for the neighborhood build) that the builders agreed to release the lot to us.
Which meant we had to move quickly and sign the contract about a month or two before we wanted to.
So it’s going to be belt-tightening time around here — already, the armored rat has reluctantly agreed that he can live without Grey Goose and that his margaritas can do without Grand Mariner — and any contributions you make will help us out going forward, especially now that PayPal and the Obama IRS considers your gifts as income and not largess.
Thanks to all who’ve contributed and continue to contribute. Between coaching and some side work I’m doing for extra cash, blogging is not as easy as it used to be. But I will soldier on so long as you all soldier on with me.
What else, after all, is there to do?
