Quite the week at Casa de Clowncar.
We're officially under contract for the new house. Now what our realtor refers to as "the dance," where we bring inspectors in, and start fine tuning the deal.
Our current house goes on the market Monday. We're ready. And realistic; we won't sell it for months, most likely.
I went to Grand Junction to teach a two-day web design workshop (which went very well), but a freak April snowstorm closed Vail Pass and trapped me in the mountains Friday night. Bored and lonesome. Drank the better part of a six-pack, watched some baseball, then Star Wars I (a dreadful movie, but the spaceships are cool)(and the Anakin Skywalker backstory has some genuine mythic heft to it).
Drove a hellish, white knuckle coupla hours over Vail Pass the next morning, dodging semis and reckless SUVs in the snow and ice and slush. Scary. Had some good road trip music at top volume to help me through: Tom Petty, James McMurtry (Larry's son), Michelle Shocked, Talking Heads, Robert Earl Keen.
Got home Saturday afternoon. Spent Sunday readying the house for show. And not eating. Because tomorrow is, once again, the operation that I will not name but which rhymes with "zolonoscopy." Fun.
The coming two weeks are just as busy.
Gonna be a wild ride. Oddly, kinda looking forward to it. Stay tuned.
