When I think about summer, I think about days like this. It was a lazy morning and a lazy evening with an afternoon at my in-law's pool sandwiched in between.
DAY 12 - June 12 - SOLD!
After an early morning trip to the dentist and my wife and daughters spending the morning at a weekly gardening camp at a local park, I headed out to check out a new shop I just recently caught wind of.
When I stopped in at Vintage Villains recently, I learned that Live Action Games was just up the road from my house.
There's a shop within five minutes of my house that sells nothing but vintage games? How was I not aware of this until now?!?!
With my NES recently crapped out on me, I stopped in at the shop to pick up a new pin connector which easily solved my problem. The shop itself showed a lot of promise. I'll definitely be back.
At work, a co-worker retired at the end of this past school year and I moved into her office. A new office needs a new look so I'm abandoning my Chicago Cubs decor of my old office and piecing together some stuff for my new digs. Pun completely intended ("piecing together"), the first item I've decided on for my new office is a puzzle my wife bought me for Christmas last year. I spent the better part of the afternoon putting it together in preparation for gluing and framing.
While putting together the puzzle, I took a listen to the new Bob Schneider album that just came out this week. Not his best stuff but still pretty good.
Here's where things get crazy.
With three kids and only two bedrooms to put them in, my wife and I tried to have our daughters share a room. This, in a nutshell, has been a disaster and so late this past spring we put our house on the market in hopes of moving to a home with an additional bedroom. After learning a two-month lesson in patience, we got an offer last night and (after some negotiations) came to an agreement.
Our house is now sold.
So we now have until the end of July to find, buy, and move in to a new home.
The Summer of Tim just got hectic...but it continues nonetheless...
