Lake Placid

Hello everyone - well, today has been one of those days where you are sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. We were suppose to hear about the house today - we gave the bank 2 days to let us know if they accepted the offer.

About 4:30 the realtor called and asked me if I had gone by the house today - when I said no she told me that I needed to - the bank had had the yard cleaned up - I mean the house had been deserted for over 2 years and the yard was a complete disaster - overgrown so much you could hardly even see the house. Well, you wouldn't believe the difference - you can actually see the yard - okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little - there isn't any yard or at least any grass, but there will be with some rain. The point is the yard is cleaned up quite a bit and that will save us some big bucks just having that done.

The realtor meet us (Justin and I) at the house when Justin got home from work. We went in the house and took lots of pictures for Dan (73 to be exact). I even sketched out the house layout and took a picture of it so Dan could see what the layout is. We have uploaded all the pictures to Wal Mart picture studio and Dan will pick them up in Juneau at 5:30 his time.

Anyway, we should know something tomorrow as to whether or not we have the house. Now that the yard is cleaned up and I have been back in the house I think that we can make this house a jewel - it's a diamond in the rough (okay, really rough), but the potential is there and I know that we can make this place a really nice home.

Well, I'm going to close for tonight - so you guys take care and ----------------

I'll talk to you tomorrow!!!

  1. We were finally able to catch up with you today. Your new adventure is exciting. I know the house will be "perfect" when you and Dan finish with your magic touches. Looking forward to seeing pictures. Have you enjoyed TV, internet and phone usage during your Florida visit?
