Definitely seems like a strange title to begin with when all around us, the heat is on. Actually, it was probably about this time last year that I used that phrase for another one of my blog post titles. But this year, we can escape the heat in our new future home. So that’s what we’ve been doing.
Right now we are both hanging out, checking out our various faves on our computers, and watching a little tv. We are lucky that our wireless internet is strong enough that we can connect to it out here with a really strong signal.
We have the cats over here with us, but we will be bringing them back over to the house before we head to bed. They are really adapting well, and tonight is the first time that they seem to be settling down quickly. They didn’t even “complain” when we brought them over tonight. However, our last experience on Saturday had its ups and downs. They did pretty well during the day, and I thought they had really started to get used to their new digs. But then we went to bed, and Ariel decided that enough was enough, and she was ready to go home! She basically walked on us, meowing, for most of the night. By the next morning, we decided that we will give them a chance to get more used to the place before we keep them here overnight again. The next overnight test will be in September when we go to Lake George for a few days.
Tomorrow evening, the realtor will be coming over to share his findings with us. It will be our first major “reality check.” Even though we have about 17 months until we put our house on the market, the reality is that the numbers aren’t going to change a great deal between now and then. So tomorrow we will have a better idea of what we can expect to be working with when we put the house on the market.
