I've been terrible about updating.

Basic stuff:
  • We are closing on both houses June 17th. I should seriously consider doing some packing. And, er, finding a moving company
  • in theory, we're moving June 20th.
  • I start my new job June 1. No stress. really.
  • we had the home inspection on the new house. It needs a new roof. Soon. Like immediately. Oh well.
  • we had a nice holiday.
  • there's lots of other stuff, but, well, I haven't got the energy to write about any of it just yet. Maybe tomorrow.

    Anyway, here are some photos of our new house!

    you have 2 kitchens??? nice! and the attic is redoable but liveable? sounds like fun! so when are we coming for shabbos? oh...and where is it? woodside?

    The second kitchen doesn't have a stove in it right now because apparently it was so old and scary they threw it out. Having seen the one that they kept, and knowning that the home inspector was afraid to turn on the one that they kept, I'm terrified to think of what the kitchen in the basement used to look like. the reason there are two kitchens is because the basement can be used as a legal apartment. We're not planning to do so, but it's nice to know that the option is there.

    The attic is finishable, not redoable. It isn't currently finished except that it has floors. But it is finishable, unlike most modern attics. It's a walk up attic with floors already laid down, so if we desire (and we do), then sometime (several years down the line at this point), we'll be able to finish it off and have an office or a surly teenager room or both.

    PESACH KITCHEN! SEAL IT OFF! PESACH KITCHEN!!!!!!

    it's definitely not good for a pesach kitchen. And I'm much more interested in having a dairy oven that I can use year-round than a pesach kitchen I use for a couple weeks every year.

    we're going to add a dairy oven to our kitchen.

    someday.............

    Joel plans on keeping our surly teenagers in the shed.

    good for him! he's my kind of parent. Seth's favorite parenting tool is duct tape. Maybe the two of them should get together and raise wild animals and you and I can be the parents for our combined kids. ;)

    Then I shall send Matthew (10-year-old) to live with you and Seth when new baby (currently being called "Jacob", thanks to Seth) comes along. Duct tape and velcro! Just keep his hair short!
    Many congratulations on the new house. And the new job. As I mentioned before, if you want help to paper or (non-toxic to parasitic fetal humans) paint, give me a call.

    Doesn't the exterior of Karen's new house kinda look like our old house in Baltimore?
    From: gittygiggles Date: May 28th, 2004 11:57 am (UTC) (Link)
    uh...they're both brick! that's about it!
    leahmiriam From: leahmiriam Date: May 28th, 2004 02:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
    Nah, they are both brick cape cods...except my upstairs was finished.
    From: gittygiggles Date: May 29th, 2004 07:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
    i dont see it. but then again...you know how i am with houses

    "they're both brick" sums it up

    Congrats again on the houses! The new one looks great! (And hey, even if you have to put a stove in the Pesach kitchen, it's still nice to not have to rekasher every year. :-) )
    estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: May 28th, 2004 07:17 am (UTC) (Link)
    when we put a stove/oven down there, it'll be my dairy stove. So I'll still have to kasher every year, but at least I'll have a dairy stove!!

    It looks neat -- and that is so cool about the second kitchen!
    estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 2nd, 2004 06:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
    Thanks! Yeah, the second kitchen is nifty, though really as it stands now, it's really more just that there's the infrastructure for a second kitchen. It's not currently a fully functional kitchen. But there's already a gas line run down there for hooking up a stove. and there's a fridge. so it's not bad.

    Forget about checkers...

    How about a game of human chess?

    Re: Forget about checkers...

    we thought of that. not sure it's a big enough space.
