Today was a busy day as we left early to travel to SLC. We took S3 and Cute Girl (See Annie's report on Cute Girl) along with us. Annie's sister and her husband have just returned from a 23 month stay in Malawi, so we have a lot of catching up to do. Most of Jan's children were there as well as Funky Disco and Family, Pixie Stylist, Nurse and Family and Aspen Leaf. I think we had 28 people in and out of the house. So it was busy getting there, and hard to have a conversation during the stay. We had a wonderful celebratory dinner including steaks, cheese cake, watermelon, great salads, and chocolate chip cookies. Time to get back on the treadmill. I have had too much prosperity.
We had a nice dinner, and some good talks, and then a nice long drive home. I think that Cute Girl was a hit. It was deep water as she met the family, or half of it anyway. But she is charming and poised, and carried it off well.
On the way home, we followed Aspen Leaf to south SL to see the home that she and the Card Shark are trying to buy. It is an older home in a very nice neighborhood. Quiet, nice trees, winding streets. Brick. It needs some work, but has a really nice sized yard. They will close the deal soon, and will be moving in the next week or two. I am a little shaky on the dates, but am excited for them buying the house. I think they will be really happy there.
Tomorrow is Labor Day and we will be lying somewhat low. S3 and CG will do some painting on the house, but have to get back to their respective schools and S3 has to get to bed fairly early as he is up at 3am each day. Amazing how sleep deprivation can encourage regular habits. So we don't look for world changing progress, but for a little effort. I have quite a bit of wood to cut, split and stack yet. I think Annie has some sewing. So we will labor a bit on the day, and probably grill or dutch oven something before S3 and CG have to hit the road.
Also, I found a little time to write a couple of posts to TradetheTrend, so if you are interested... Two on BinLaden type option buys, and one on basic calls and puts. Hope that you all have a great day.
