This afternoon is taking forever. I’ve been busy all week, but not so much today, so I’ve been sitting around trying to look like I’m doing something most of the day. Ugh!
Our office will be moving to our new location in a month. This will be the second move in a year’s time, but we knew it was coming. Our move last spring was just to consolidate some of the smaller outlying offices that didn’t need as much room as we were paying for. This will put all of the Denver area offices in the same location.
It will be a couple miles further south for me to drive, but not a huge commute increase. I know where the new office is, and I’ve driven around the area a couple times, but I don’t remember if there are any eating places within walking distance. I hope there are. That’s about the only way I can meet my step counting goal.😀
I’ve been working with the personal trainer at 24Hour Fitness for a few weeks. I signed up for 8 weeks, and I think this is week 6. She is working me hard! I have been sore for a couple days after every session. But it feels good. I don’t plan to work that hard after the sessions end, but I do plan to keep up going in and working out on a regular basis.
We have a new neighbor in the unit across from ours. I guess we’ve been lucky the 25 years we’ve been there to have good neighbors all around us. This one, though… Practically the day they moved in, they were knocking on the door asking to use the phone and borrow stuff. (Like a dvd player…who the hell asks to borrow [or expects to be loaned] a dvd player from a rank stranger you’ve just met??)
Tuesday night they were knocking on the door at ELEVEN FREAKING O’CLOCK AT NIGHT! Needless to say, we didn’t answer. And they kept knocking for a good 15-20 minutes before they finally gave up and went away.
Anyway, it has been impetus for us to start looking for another place. We’ve been thinking about it anyway. With mom and dad both gone now, there is nowhere for visitors to stay, so we want to upsize a little bit, plus have a few things we haven’t had before, like a 2-car garage. We’re both sick of scraping windshields.
My sister found a perfect house for us on Zillow (or one of those apps)! The appealing part was that it had two master suites. But it was 4-bed/4-bath, which is probably a little too much, lol. Plus, it was way more than we want to spend.
My sister finally got mom’s estate settled and distributed this week. We’ve talked about using our portion of the sale of mom’s house along with whatever we can get for our condo to go toward a new place. All of that together would go a long way toward something nice (though not quite 4-bed/4-bath, lol) with a very small mortgage. Or, even better, no mortgage at all.
There is another townhouse community that my sister found on Zillow that is much more convenient to both of our offices, that has 3-bed/3-bath options much closer to our price range. We’ve seen two units listed there that looked very promising as far as size and layout. So I’m hopeful.
