Da Wind! Da Wind!

I feel like Tattoo from Fantasy Island pointing out the obvious to Mr. Rourke! It's windy here in Lost Wages today, um, I mean, this week, um, I mean this month, um, well, it's just really freakin' windy here a LOT! Honestly, I'm surprised there is a single palm frond or leaf left on a tree anywhere here in Southern Nevada. And our pool pump has gotten all plugged up for the umpteen billionth time, so the handy dandy pool vacuum simply sits in one spot on the bottom, being useless. Our landlords COULD have some doodah installed so that wouldn't happen, but they refuse, so we are manually scooping plant life out of the pool on a regular basis (the horror!!).

Loved the pool last summer, but I don't think I'll miss it much when we move.

Yes, I said the M word.

Hide the children's eyes.

I guess I should have warned you that this blog had adult content today. Sorry to be so graphic in my language. My apologies if I offended anyone.

Cause MOVE is a 4-letter word, don'tcha know. At least, it is to me. Thankfully, this MOVE is simply across town. To another house that doesn't have a pool. I think we will miss the hot tub the most - with the nice cool evenings, you can often find me and Divine Hubby soaking in the tub with a glass of merlot. We have actually put "hot tub" as a budget item, in that we are saving to purchase one so hopefully by next Winter/Spring, we may actually have one of our own.

So, the point of this blog entry is just to say hi.




Nothing earth-shattering (thank goodness), no big moves or life changes (and for this, I will thank GOD) to report. We here in Las Vegas are enjoying the beautiful 75-80 degree weather, no 'midty, crystal-clear blue skies and oh, yeah, the WIND. Hold on tight Chase, we're going outside!!!

We moved 5 houses once. It was our easiest move ever, except the whole putting everything in storage for a month and moving in with a friend part.

Hope your move goes well.

MOVE is most certainly a horrible four letter word! When I was a 20 something I had to move out of a bottom floor apartment because it always flooded. I waited a month for the people upstairs to move so I could get their apt.

The hot tub thing is devastating. I was so happy to have my own home so I could get my Hot Tub. My wife Shelly and I saved up for it and it was well worth the wait!! Good luck with the M*#e!!

Yep, we are in the 'windy' season here in Vegas. It gets crazy at times!
Moving is so fun!! Okay, maybe not, but it is a lot easier to pack up when you are only moving a few miles as compared to a few states! If you are missing your pool this summer you can come over to the poverty pool.
