Across the pond

My wife and I are off on a two-week trip to England on Wednesday. Ostensibly, it is for my brother's wedding but we will also be spending Christmas with my family. The trip has been arranged for quite a while, so it was just bad luck that it happened to fall at such a crucial and exciting time in the finishing of our new home. When we signed our contract, the projected settlement date was supposed to come just before Thanksgiving. Obviously it slipped a wee bit!

We will be making one more trip to the house early on Monday morning and I hope to be able to take plenty of pictures for a final, pre-vacation post. After that, we will have to wait until December 29 at the earliest before we will be able to see the house again.


  1. Have a wonderful trip!! I can't wait to see the house pics. :)

  2. What a wonderful way to spend your vacation. I'm sure you will miss seeing your house for a few weeks, but just imagine what you will come home to! Have a great time.

  3. Have a great trip guys! Enjoy the time with family. I know the timing with the house isn't the best, but from most of the experiences I have witnessed and read about, the PMs know what their doing. ;) You'll have a great surprise for you when you get back with your house. lol

    Enjoy the trip! Be safe! Have fun! And we can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. So much work will get done between now and then! It might be refreshing to see giant leaps as opposed to baby steps. Enjoy the much-needed and deserved vacation!
