It's a little weird around here. Michael's last day of work was yesterday and he will apply for Social Security to begin November 1st. I am so not ready for this! Mentally, it is weird. Financially, it is scary. There is a family issue happening (Project #1), which should be resolved soon and that may offer some financial support. Fingers crossed that it all falls into place.
Today, I am going to the bank then into the yards. After a good shower, I am going to Natalie's current townhouse for her Open House. The moment it was listed, they placed a bid on the house in our neighborhood. Exciting.
Change is in the air.
With all this change, we are waiting for the drought to end and El Nino to bring massive rains beginning soon. Or so they say. Next weekend, while the entire world is in town for the Pumpkin Festival, we will be working to get the house ready: gutters cleaned, branches trimmed away from the house, the side of the house cleaned of clutter, gutter extenders installed, some plants removed. I have a long list.
There is a F1 race from Russia happening this weekend and we are watching the qualifying right now. So far, it looks like a standard race lineup: Hamilton, Rosberg, Vettel. No changes there!
