Hello Everyone!! It has been a while since I posted in here, quite a while! Life has been very busy. It is a good busy though, I am preparing for retirement on July 3rd. In the time since the last blog we have prepared our home for sale, created a list of potential homes and stayed busy at work training my replacement.
I had mentioned on the last blog that the painters were in and we hoped to have the house listed in March. Well, that did not happen. The painter came highly recommended but he was far from professional. His 2 1/2 week job turned into 5 weeks and that put us well behind schedule. He also did not do the greatest job and seemed offended when I called him on it and had him fix a few things. As a result, we lost our slot for the flooring crew so they were a weeke and half before they got started. They did a great job and finished in less than a week. We were finally able to list the house on the 28th of April.
In approx 2 weeks, we had 12 showings and 2 offers. On May 11th, we countered on an offer and they accepted so we entered into a contract pending Home Inspection and Financing approval. It is an exciting time!! I have since contacted my Agent in Savannah with a list of 10 homes and we have scheduled a visit down to look at the homes. Our present plan calls for Retire on July 3rd, Closing here on the 11th and begin driving to GA on the 12th.
So, what about my photography??? Still very active and taking pictures most every day. I did withdraw from the 365 Contest on Nikonites as I was so busy with the house. I did not want to take shots just to say I posted every day. I have only missed a few days but it is nice to be able to take a break when I am busy.
I would like to share a few of my better shots from the last couple months.....
Well, time to get back to work now. Have fun and be safe!
