Now I have a goal if I ever get back to The House...

Well, it's been a month or so since I've left The House, but I've been so busy making money (which is nice) that it seems like a week. My latest plans revolve around building a Big New House, and that will perforce involve masonry, now that I know how great masonry is. So when I ran across this video of a man laying a whole lot of 12-inch block, I thought of you. Enjoy!

I still have so many projects photodocumented that I want to write about, and hopefully now that we live in a place where my wife is unassailed by Level 5 culture shock and my children have public transit for all their back-and-forthing needs, I'll actually have some time to write about them. I probably have so much backlog that I will have bought a fixer-upper here in Hungary before I run out. I'm going to insert them into the post stream around the dates they were actually written, but I'll also put current-dated references to them for the home audience.
In the meantime, I've put The House on the market for $40,000. As I tell people, either I'll get to keep it, or I'll have enough money that I won't care. I think it won't sell this year, but we'll see. With an office view like this, suddenly The House is less attractive to me, and I remember, you know, how much I always loved Europe to start with. But if it doesn't sell, then in the fall or maybe next spring, I'll head over for a few intensive weeks of work - sort of a work camp of one.
My next post will be a full to-do list of everything remaining to be done in The House (at least those that have been dignified with to-do points), just for historical reasons and in preparation for any such work camp binge. But in the meantime, my bank account is running on fumes and I really have to pay attention to invoicing and additional work. (Without significant distractions! It's like heaven!)
