very pleased with work progress. Other than needing to import a few gigabytes of data, the thing I've been working on for the past week is almost certainly probably maybe working.

Then took loree up to look at the Barn House, which we are now calling the Perfect House. And which we are going to make a misguided attempt to purchase. We love it so hard. We are not ready to be making offers on a house. If we were doing this right, we would empty out our house, put it on the market, sell it, get the money, pay off our debts, get a loan preapproved, then start shopping. We've sorta done it backwards. Because we aren't smart people, I guess. So we're going to pick an agent as quick as we can and have them write up an offer contingent on selling our place and getting a loan for the new one. Meanwhile we've contacted the mortgage broker to start things rolling there (including, I imagine, his eyes). We're desperately hoping that we can offer enough money to make waiting for our contingencies worthwhile to the owner.

We seriously need as much help as possible packing the house. One or both of us is out of town two of the next five weekends, but the rest of the time we're around it would be great if anybody were willing to help us pile stuff into boxes and move the boxes around. loree was working on organizing larger groups on weekends, but if anybody wants to pop in for an hour or five after work, let us know. ::)

make sure you have a large pile of boxes and tape for me next week. I will help get stuff packed up then. I largely just need the boxes to already be in the rooms I will be packing since carrying boxes is stupidly hard for me (no fingerprints means I have no grip on paper).

and I might know someone trustworthy who is available for hire (who is mighty even), but he is in desperate need of finding work for bill paying so he can't really afford to volunteer. But, for that, I could certainly come down and voluteer to pack boxes and keep Sancho out of the way while he works. :D

Can do on the boxes. Paid labor TBD.

I am inquiring as to the sturdy nephew's availability, as I cannot make it myself...

Thank you - tell him Marty'd be willing to trade another video game console for labor.

I will definitely do so - last I heard he had turned most of his saving efforts towards Project: Buy a Van. But I think his other big project is to build himself a desktop machine, so there might be other hardware bartering options if in the moving process y'all decide there is hardware you'd rather not move.

I have hardware he might find acceptable. I'm also quite willing to pay in the future for hambu^H^H^H^Help today

Tracy is charmed by the idea of working for tech, and has time available, email sent so y'all can coordinate.

I or we might be able to do some work this weekend, if work is available. After this weekend, not available until after Labor Day.
Martin Tithoniumtithonium on August 5th, 2016 07:58 pm (UTC)
We've got people coming over Saturday evening. You would be welcome.

Monday or Wednesday nights, or the weekend after this one, are options for me if you let me know what works best.
