Bloomin,

How are you carpentry, electrical, painting and plumbing skills? I presume that you have been taking a crash course? Being a new home owner is like enrolling in a trade school. It is also great exercise for your back - if it doesn't break it!

I have some major plumbing jobs ahead of me when the weather breaks - I was a plumber's helper many years ago. I did not want to touch them during the cold weather.

We all hope that you have more time after you move in and are looking forward to your post.

With that response I think I would rather do the painting myself!

I do have an airless spray gun. Of course, for non-pros, that means a lot of window scraping!

I am sure you will become a better painter over time. Just hire one and you will learn in a hurry - after you see the bill!

Apparently your a better trainer than we were! We only have one. But he mastered the art of messing up any paint job. It was better to just do-it-ourselves! He was better at training his parents than the opposite way around!

Of course that can hurt our young today. Because they have to hire somebody to do their work. I am glad that I never paid for a painter, carpenter, plumber or electrician!

I can relate, I follow my father's words..'why do you think I had kids for'. I am lucky especially with #2 son, he is a huge help to us.

That little breeze is getting rid of all the dead limbs - you don't have to climb and prune! Just make sure you aren't under any of those falling branches!

So when is moving in day? You are getting closer - right?
