I'm too tired to come up with a more clever title. New carpet installed. New bathtub and shower installed. Painters hired. Landscaping complete. Realtor on the hunt for possibilities. Mortgage preapproval done. All of this completed while we're packing the clutter we want to keep and moving it to storage so the house is more presentable to prospective buyers. And I'm stil working overtime every week.

But man, I need a vacation.
