HEADING TO HEATH: MISSING IN ACTION
So I moved to Wylie and sort of disappeared off the face of the earth. What’s up with that?
The Real Estate Stuff
Moving takes time. We moved out of our Dallas home into a rental in Wylie. Why would we do something like that? Well, because we’re building a house in Heath. We wanted to sell our Dallas house and we did, but we had to move before the contractor even started the foundation of the new house. So we had to find a place to live.
Building a custom house takes a lot of time, too – especially shopping for all the stuff to put inside. Many builders like to say they build custom homes, but they don’t really. You go to their selection center and make choices from their offerings. For this house, our choices are
whatever we can find in the world – make that whatever we can find in the world that we can afford. Balancing our champagne taste with our beer budget is quite a challenge.
We also spend much of our time visiting the build and discussing our concerns with the general contractor and his subs. It seems as if every day we discover little oops that we have to address.

Then there’s my part time job. It started back in May and it grew. At first, it was just a few hours a week. Then I went on vacation. Then the boss went on vacation. Then things started snowballing and I found myself working around the clock, writing about Lenicam weddings videos for their website.
The boss’s goal was to increase his visibility on search engines. From the beginning I warned him that we’d need to be a little more proactive to really move him up in the rankings, but he told me to cool my jets and keep writing. Come to find out, he was paying closer attention to what I was saying than I thought. Right now we’re in the process of revamping the whole website. I can’t wait to show you what we’ve done.
I’ve also been spending a lot of time in my car. Wylie is out in the middle of nowhere. The freeways and tollways are all about twenty minutes away. Looking at a map, it appears that Wylie should be more convenient than it is, but it’s not. We can’t wait to get out of here and get to Heath. It’s further east, but it’s very close to I-30
So for now, I’ve gotten my ducks back in their row and have carved out some time for blogging. Chances are that when the Heath house is finished (predictions range from late January to mid-March) I’ll disappear again for awhile. Thanks for dropping by. Next week I’ll tell you about some of the fun things we’ve done when we could escape from shopping for tile and light fixtures and cabinets and appliances and paint and …. well, you get the picture.
