Not too much going on these days. Our potential buyer came over yesterday and checked out the popup. It seemed like he was interested so we will have to wait and see whether it turns into an actual sale. Other than that, its been quiet, with the days filled with the usual - work, laundry, cooking meals etc. Yesterday Harry took the day off and got some things done around here. He also used the time to investigate a leak we just discovered in the basement coming from one of the water pipe areas. We have a plumber coming on Thursday - hopefully whatever it is won't end up being too expensive. We are going to take advantage of having the plumber here to have him replace the faucet set in the upstairs tub. The piece that controls the cover to the drain (there's probably some official name for that but I have no clue what it is) broke awhile ago, and has been covered with duct tape ever since. We knew we would have to get that taken care of at some point, so might as well be now. We've made a lot of improvements in the house over the past year, all with a view to increasing the value for when we sell it. Right now our major goal is to become debt free - well except for the mortgage - that won't be gone until we sell.
