- Did I ever tell you that we lost a glorious tree in our front yard during the ice storm last Thanksgiving?
Yes, that same ice storm that took out the even-more-glorious tree at the flip. It was not a good day for trees, no sir.
Isn’t it funny how sometimes you don’t really appreciate what you have until it’s gone?
Anyhoo, we immediately looked into having our tree replaced – our front yard looked so naked! – but we were initially scared off by the cost of buying and planting a non-puny tree and decided we would wait awhile before we bought anything. Maybe the yard wouldn’t look so naked once spring came and some semblance of green and life returned to our yard? But even so, our beloved Japanese maple needed some shade from the Texas sun….
So, spring is now here and the yard still looked sad. We bit the bullet and bought another live oak, nowhere near as big as the one that we lost, and now it’s happily planted in our front yard.
- We’re buying another flip! We’ve been searching forever, and everything suddenly fell into place with this next one – which will be our 9th flip. Crazy! We should be closing on it in early June, if all goes well. I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
- Our current flip is finally getting close to being finished. Painting is being finished this week, the bathtub has been refinished, appliances are being delivered today, and the plumbing and electrical fixtures are scheduled to be installed early next week. Then we will just have little punch list things to take care of before we can put this baby on the market! Goodness, I’m ready.
- We had a great Easter, complete with awesome weather and fun festivities. Nutty is an egg-hunting master (she did at least 4 this year). We managed to snag two family photos, which are a rarity these days!
How have you guys been?
