Just saying Hi

I just realized that I went the entire month of March without posting.

True we haven't been doing much, but a month? That's just not acceptable.

Steve has been working on the table top. He just this week started applying the layers of finish. He has been doing extensive research as he has never worked with Maple before.

I have to admit that right now I just don't have the oompf to write up the minutae of dyes and shellac colorations and how those combinations interact etc... etc...

Instead, I'm just posting this pretty picture of daffodils and saying Happy Spring!

Right now, we are in the process of looking for tenants also. Our adorable twenty-something roommates had to split. I believe we will be wrapping that process up this weekend. It is always good to have that behind us. Miss you guys.

Happy Spring! Loved the photo of the daffodils.

Are you using Craig's List for the tenant search? We'll be starting the search next week for a June 1 rental; I'm a little nervous about it, because it's the first time we're trying to rent one of our places off the May/October cycle. Our super awesome tenants just bought their own place and close mid May, so we're letting them stay the extra few weeks.

Thanks Sandy!

Hi Joanna, yes we use Craig's List and it looks like we may have a taker for May 1st. I am sure you will be okay with June 1st.

For some reason we never seem to rent the apartment out when it's occupied and so we always lose one month's rent minimum, but that's what saving is for I guess.

Good luck!

(I apologize if you have been previously contacted by us).

I am a Casting Associate Producer for ABC families hit reality show 'Wife Swap.' We are currently casting for our fifth season and are looking for a great family that are passionate about flipping houses. We pride ourselves on casting a wide array of families…families from all different walks of life who would like the opportunity to educate the viewing audience about their particular parenting philosophy, their beliefs and their way of life.

The premise of Wife Swap is simple: for seven days, two wives from two different families with very different values exchange husbands, children and lives (but not bedrooms) to discover what it's like to live a different family's life. It's an interesting social experiment and a great way to see your family in a whole new light. It is shot as a documentary series, so NO scripts and no set. It's just one camera that is documenting your life.

Families that appear on the show will receive a financial honorarium for lost wages, time and commitment. And if you refer a family that appears on the show you would receive $1000.

Here at 'Wife Swap' we look for a two-parent home with at least one child between the ages of 6 and 17 living at home full time.

If you are interested, please contact me ASAP and tell me a little about your family. Or if you would like to refer a family, please email me their contact information and I will be in touch.

Thank you!

We have our first round of applicants coming over today; I think I have my tour-speak down pat, but I'm always a little nervous anyway.
