Further-non-progress report

Well, there's progress on the house front--it's painted! Wonders never cease! Of course, this being the old house, the very act of painting uncovered a couple of things that need to get fixed ASAP, so that's what I'll be doing today. I have an appointment with the carpet people for Tuesday--that may take a few weeks just because of the time it takes for the carpet to get ordered, but it shouldn't require a ton of active management on my part.

On the other hand, I've really been neglecting the place, so the yard is beginning to get that abandoned look. I'm living in a better environment now, so I've lost my tolerance and everything about that place enrages me--the across-the-street pervert who gets into his truck and watches me whenever I work in the front yard, the tire tracks the drunk fucks who live there regularly leave in the lawn--but I know it will just get worse if I don't keep the place relatively tidy. So I just need to suck up and do some yard work there--not that the weather is cooperating (grinds teeth audibly).

Anyway, I guess my point is that I'll be somewhat occupied with getting the house ready to sell, but I feel like it shouldn't take up THAT much time, so hopefully now that my killer sinus/ear infection has cleared up, I can actually write again soon. Fingers crossed, anyway--a girl can dream.
