The move …etc

by admin on December 19, 2014

Didn’t really see this coming, but we bought a new home! The past six years have been challenging financially, what with changing jobs and moving to a new state and basically restarting our lives, but the opportunity presented itself and here we are. Thank you veteran’s benefits. That’s the ticket. My VA loan came through for us and made it all possible.

In related news we made the actual move to the new house this past weekend. The new house is 1.1 miles from the old house, so yes, we are still on James Island and loving it! But we are about a mile closer to the beach! yay!

The move took 1.5 hours from the time the truck was opened up until it was unloaded at the new place. A new world record! and all thanks to friends showing up and pitching in. 5 guys and a truck. Now unpacking boxes and getting settled in? that will take months.. How in the world did we accumulate all this stuff and how is it going to fit in the new house.

On a down note, I managed to get pink eye monday and was home from work until wednesday… but the weekend is here now, so life is good. Doing eye drops for a few more days hoping to “lose the gunk.” pink eye sucks. Never had it before and don’t know how kids deal with it.. itching mess…

Life is good

what’s happening?

September 28, 2014

A quick update on life on James Island.. biggest news (I guess) is that Stella has started traveling. She and Josh (boyfriend) got a 14 week gig in Greenville working the sterile processing department. This is their first foray into that temp/traveling life and we’ll see how that goes. I’ve already encouraged them to extend [...]

Hiatus

July 26, 2014

Just saw John Hiatt last night at the North Charleston Coliseum. Not that that has anything to do with with my long Hiatus from writing in this blog, but it’s a word play thing. Had technical difficulties with the blog, the white screen of death that apparently sometimes befalls wordpress themed blogs. weird. couldn’t post, [...]

Fanning the Fire

March 19, 2014

As anyone who has been camping knows, a fire burns brighter when you give it more oxygen. Most people do that by fanning the fire or blowing on it. It’s simple rules of physics. You need three things to start a fire or to keep one going, fuel, spark and oxygen. Take away one of [...]

Ten Year Anniversary

February 2, 2014

Seems like only yesterday we were freezing our asses off in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania where Phil had not seen his shadow and the world had seen a glimpse of Janet Jackson’s right nipple. (that’s the nicer of the two.) Amazingly enough the nip only made an appearance for 9/16th of a second but the slow motion [...]

Lot 23 – Progress Report

November 17, 2013

Notes from the desk of Dr. Rem: Lot 22 has shown a lot of promise. I truly believed that the radioactive isotopes combined with the latest chemical concoction would do the trick. It was very close. There were signs of brain activity in the reticular activation system that migrated through the cerebellum and into the [...]

Staying on Track

October 29, 2013

The only way I can manage to stay on track is to announce goals every month. I’ve talked a bit about this – my “New Month’s Resolution” plan. Part of that plan has been releasing a new book on Amazon every thirty days. I’m not sure how long I can keep this up, but if [...]

Job at Carpenter…

October 15, 2013

So this is kind of funny. I got an invitation to connect on LinkedIn from an old colleague at Carpenter Technology. He has moved on and is in real estate and I’m always happy to connect with old friends and colleagues. You never know when a connection might enhance your life in some way, or [...]
