Its been a fun month of Home ownership this month for some odd reason. At the beginning of the month our internet went out, and we were without our main source of home entertainment for a few days. We were all stuck watching a single TV of over the air programming until Frontier Fios came out and had to replace our ONT unit in the garage.
It was nice this year to have the family come with me to Las Vegas for the basketball tournament. For our Thursday night steak dinner we went to Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse off the strip.
Saturday evening we left the kids at the Grandparent’s house and had an adult only dinner. We still feel guilty when ever Alice isn’t around, but it is sure nice to be able to eat and talk and drink a little without having to advert our attention away from each other.
This weekend was my annual pilgrimage to the desert to play in the Las Vegas Invitational Basketball Tournament benefiting a new gym being built in Little Tokyo. This year things were a little different considering that half the team from last year wasn’t playing this year, and most of the spouses weren’t coming due to various reasons.
The condo has been on the market for two weeks now, and we’re currently on our 3rd purchase offer. The first offer came in two days after the listing went up, and was cancelled before things went into escrow because the buyer got cold feet. The next weekend came by and we had another offer on the house after a little more back and forth and we officially got into escrow this week. Lost of paper work was signed, but this time it fell through because the buyer’s financing fell through. Now we’re onto our third buyer, so we’re crossing our fingers that this was goes all the way through.
Our third buyer did fall through, and after a few weeks of no more new offers we lowered the price, and we’re in escrow with our 4th buyer. Crossing toes this time.
The condo is officially sold!
Its been almost six years since we bought our little condo in Gardena, but it was time to move on. Joy and I purchased our condo a few months after we married in 2009. For the most part it was a great place for two people to grow together where we learned to live together, do chores together, cook together, and was the starting and ending point for our days.
Back in April we had our first night without Miss Alice to attend Chrissie’s (coworker) wedding down in San Diego. It was definitely a strange but welcomed weekend considering its been 18 months since she was born.
