A multitude

Sorry for not writing, Dear Reader, but things have been hectic lately. I've been fishing, house hunting like a mad man, getting to know an incredibly awesome woman, and working. That's quite a lot going on for me.

I hope the house hunting is finally over. I made an offer on a house Saturday. It's an older house (25 to 30 yrs old), but is undergoing an extensive remodeling. The owner passed away unexpectedly and his son decided to remodel before putting it on the market. Fortunately for me, my real estate agent is also the listing agent so I got to see it before it even hit the market.

It'll have new kitchen countertops and flooring, new bathroom countertops and flooring, new carpet, and best of all, a new HVAC system. If the offer is accepted by tomorrow, I will be able to pick out the flooring and countertops since they've not been installed. Will probably do tile throughout, except for the kitchen counters. My 'friend' gave me a great idea of looking for a piece of marble that may have a small irregularity in it. Marble countertops would be great...plus, she even agreed to help me decorate. :-) I'll let you know as soon as I hear something.

As for fishing, I went again yesterday with my friend and his son and we caught 19 bass between us. I had the biggest for a while until my buddy reeled in a 5lb 3 oz. beauty. We didn't keep any, although I wouldn't have minded a little grilled bass for supper. Maybe next time. I got another offer to go today, but laundry called.

That's all for now, Dear Reader. I will keep you up to date on all things 3legged as they occur. Out.


Congrats on everything, and good luck on the offer! Just one thing, what is this "bathroom countertop" of which you speak? Nonetheless, plural? We New Yorkers of the non-trustifarian variety might need a footnoted explanation.

Fingers crossed on the house, H! Sounds pretty great. Nonetheless, have someone look at the roof, ok?

congrats on the house and the "friend".

it's too bad you didn't keep any of the bass, that would have been some good eats.

"Is it a dream, or is it real" is no longer the case, I see....you finally figured this one out. And keeping some things private is probably best. It sounds like you are creating an amazing environment for her to surround herself in. You have so much to offer, as I am certain she does also. You said it best...

For where we go, I do not know
The path is dark, our pace is slow
The journey's end, we cannot see
And so we walk, just you and me

Yeah, new house! I think you meant tile for floors not countertops, but just in case you didn't, tile countertops are a pain in the ass. I have some in my bathroom - the grout is the perfect place for germs to fester!

You didn't keep the fish? :( [sigh]

I go away for 10 days and you get yourself in all kinds of situations. Road trips, kisses, smoothies and wavelengths? Maybe you should let Ari in on your secret. She seems to need some help. ;)

[Just kiddin', Ari.]
