Alright you sleuthy detectives....

I can't keep anything a secret!!

So yes, fine! We're going to move away from this podunk nightmare and back to NorCal, where life is wonderful all the time.

Well, more of the time.

Our main obstacle right now is getting the house here sold, any tips are welcome. Also anyone looking to purchase or rent an approximate 1800 square foot 3 bdrm, 2 bath vacation home/family home on one acre in the beautiful White Mountains should let me know. I can let it go cheap.

OK, it's out there, phew. I feel better. I hate keeping things from you Internet. Oh, and friends.

Bob, who was initially 100 percent against the idea, now cannot wait to move away. It has more to do with being fed up with poverty and his crappy boss than anything else. Today is the first day he's worked all week AND it's only a half day AND it's bullshit grunt work AND he's beyond pissed off.

His exact quote:

"I can't WAIT to get the hell off this fucking mountain!"

I had to try to talk him down like you would a angry raging bear in the yard...backing away slooooowly, slooooooooowly all the way.

He left in a big ass huff, so, I gotta say thank goodness he's out THERE huffing and puffing and not in HERE knocking around in the house driving us all berzerker!

Yesterday we commenced Operation Fix the House Up by finally starting the tile on the bathroom shower! Yay!
Bob is doing it himself and we've had all the materials for like a year. He's already halfway done. Huzzah! It looks great.
Dylan was the helper. He helped paint the shower walls with RedGuard (it's waterproofing) and somehow ended up painting his own ass cheek. Under the diaper. Don't ask me how, I really don't want to know.

Then last night we made the monster list of all the other repairs and upgrades we need to get done. It's not terribly bad. All of it we can do ourselves and a lot of the bigger things timewise (like repaint all the walls) are not that expensive.

And that my friends is the big secret news that you all let me keep a secret for about 36 hours. Good job super sleuths.
Melting Pot here we come!

Wow! That IS big news! Any ideas on where in NorCal?

Jessica said...

Up Sacramento way...probably around Vacaville, or somewhere in there. Probably no more west then Vacaville. I'd like to go back to school (shudder) and get my masters already and go to work and start banking the cashish.

eva said...

Master's in..? Psychology? What do you want to do?

Jessica said...

Yeah, but I'm not sure yet. All I am sure that I want to do is stack pap-uh. Rake in the cheddar. Dolla dolla billz y'all. :)

Jessica said...

That's what I did! A Masters in Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Winds up being very relevant to everything in life.

Jessica said...

Oh yeah, my psych major is super helpful. Like when Bob and I argue and I try to black ops his mind. He's getting wise though...
"Stop trying to use your psychology on me!!"

YAY! I am so excited!
