as predicted in the last post we did, finally, score a home in Cordes. The buy closed at the end of August and we moved in on September 4th.
A well-done deal; we’re settling in and muddling through the “afters”, i.e. the never-ending unpacking, record updates, utility change-outs, repairs, unpacking, restocking and, best of all, the after-the-fact ‘oopses’ that keep you running well past the move-in date.
Like discovering that the cable company who said “of course” when you gave them the new location before the move, but bailed when you called them after, so you have to drive a mere 36 miles to return the box you kept because they said you could… and then they gig you $423 for it anyway because your account was on autodraft????
I could go on but to little point. The upside is that, most of the major hassles are at least in process, and life is scrabbling back to some kind of new normal that we can begin to enjoy.
My fiber cum music studio is up and running. I am practicing daily again, returning to jams and open mics that I frequented before the move, and searching actively for those closer in.
I’m also looking for a friendly (nearby) street or three to strum on.
This weekend I’m headed to a birthday party jam on Saturday and the folk music festival in Prescott on Sunday. And in two more weeks I’ll be off to Albuquerque for the New Mexico dulcimer festival.
Am I excited? Hell no, I’m justifiably ecstatic!
Or would that be certifiably…?
