The past few weeks

02.04.2006 · Posted in Autobiographical

ParkAvenueHouse… have been spent working on the new house. I closed this past Monday and have been spending evenings and weekends purchasing furniture, arranging for utilities, meeting with an accountant, etc. It’s all happening so fast. I am truly grateful for this opportunity. My family had suggested that I make a list of things I needed to purchase, so I did, and the list has almost all been donated by extended family. It’s been wonderful. I plan on getting back to blogging on a more regular basis just as soon as the house gets settled. I am aiming to open up by Feb 12. Many thanks to everyone who’s helped out.

  11. Great news for you. I think that it is wonderful that you are immersing yourself in this project. I think that, like others have said, you will gain an incredible amount of insight and strength from this. In addition, you will be providing a much needed social service.

    Kudos, kiddo!

  12. CONGRATS on your two years. I hope that you have many more.

  13. Jim said that today is your 2 yr birthday. I thought it was Feb 14. In either case, (clearing my throat for a song)…


  14. Welcome to the terrible twos! Actually, it was a lot of fun, now that I think back on it… this is about the time that you find out the more you think you know, the more you realize you DON’T know! –and it’s okay.
