DONE. FINITO.

We sold our house yesterday. We are officially the proud owners of only ONE house! WOO HOO!
You have no idea how nice it was to get on the phone and cancel all the utilities yesterday. No more double utility payments. That should save us a bunch every month. The killer was the electric/heating bill for keeping a house warm (for the "lookers") in the cold Denver weather. NOT FUN. And of course the realtors were always going in and turning all the lights on in the house and letting them burn for HOURS at a time. We had one monthly bill that was $400, for a house we weren't even living in. And water bills. And snow removal bills. It was a big thorn in our butts, for sure.

Not any more! Whew! HOORAY!!!

Okay, I was tagged by Ann, so here goes:

Five Reasons Why I Blog:

1) Because I need to write something every day:
They say all good writers force themselves to write, EVERY day. I would like to think of myself as a good writer…some of the time...
2) It's a way of venting:
A blog is like a journal, but not as personal (Um, since the entire WORLD could potentially see it!) It’s nice to get things out sometimes, and realize that your life (although boring and pathetic) can actually be dang funny when you write about it. It's a strange phenomenon. You can take the most embarrassing, mortifying, or tragic thing, and although it may seem awful at the time, it always seems funny a week later.
3) To drive my Husband Starkers:
Hubby HATES the fact that I blog. I don’t even think he reads it. If he does, he doesn't let me know. It’s sort of like we have this “don’t ask don’t tell” deal about my blog. He is very supportive of my writing,--he just thinks blogging is a complete waste of time.
4) To keep my family informed.
I don’t talk to them every day, so they can read my blog and know what’s going on in my life…to a degree.
5) It's fun:
And “daring.” I’m putting myself “out there” and it is sort of a rush sometimes. But that’s it. I’m NOT that adventurous. I like living Under the Radar.

So, that's it! I'm not tagging anyone because I always tag the same five people it seems, and I've tagged them to death lately. So you're all off the hook! (Unless KAREN wants to be tagged! ;-)

Time to rush around. Happy Tuesday, all!
