It’s been a quick week in San Antonio. We head back to Central Texas tomorrow. Hubby has a dentist appointment on Thursday. We’ll be there for a week, then come back to SA to party for Fiesta and catch the New Braunfels Swap Meet. I’ll get a chance to meet with a friend coming into town before I have to head back to Wisconsin at the end of the month — Dad’s having his other knee replaced, and I’ll be helping out for a couple of weeks. During that time, I’ll be offline for most of the time.
We’ve finished the taxes, but we’ll go through them one more time before we get the check cut that has to accompany the forms. We got the check for our first quarter 2009 payment ready to send in today — paying a little more this year than last in hopes of honing in even better on what we’ll owe. We figure it’s our first payment on the stimulus Congress has saddled us with. Who knew retired college professors and mid-level military officers were “rich”?
We’re making progress in getting the antique vehicles out of here. We loaded two flat-head V-8s onto the trailer today then filled in the trailer with various bits and pieces and four bags of leaves I vacuumed from the yard earlier this week. We still have two vehicles, two bodies, and a couple of scooters to get moved to Central Texas. Then, of course, there are parts we need to schlep up there.
Oh, yeah, and we have to get the attic vent sealed — hopefully while the raccoon that has taken up residence is out of the house. Maybe we’ll get to that when we come back next week. I’m sure that will be fun.
Oh, wait. One more thing. We stopped at a yard sale this week and found library ladders — exactly what we were looking for when we remodel the Central Texas house kitchen. It has really tall ceilings, and we want to put cabinets to the ceiling, but the only way to make that practical is with ladders. What better way to access than a library ladder system? Hubby was thrilled with that find. And I have to admit I was too.
