Good News, we are closing next week on the house and we don't have to drive across the state either to do it. I put in a garden on the empty lot of the new property a week ago. I've been mowing both our place and our future property and it takes about a tank and a half of gas to do it all. In the past I could get several mowings out of one tank doing our yard. Alot more work but its worth it. Not much else to report, working like a madman and tired most of the time because of it.

Hope everyone had a great Memorial weekend!!

Not much new to report. Still haven't closed on the other house, in fact we just found out that if don't want it to drag out another couple of months we are going to have to drive across the state for the closing. Apparently HUD only went through one Title and Abstract company, and its in Gaylord, way up north. The poor company has been bombarded with the entire states HUD homes and unless you drive to them its going to take awhile for them to get you our area. OIY We have been at least working on the outside of the house so when we do get it we will be ready to focus our complete attention to the inside. We also found a steel exterior door for the house at a flea market for $10. so that will save us about $160 on buying a new one.

In other news, Scooby is slowly feeling better. Happy Spring everyone!
