Home At Last


Well, I got cleaned up, put on my lipstick and mascara and went out. I wore a skirt. And here is a picture to prove the lipstick part. Why am I smiling? Well, the movie was worth seeing, the company was good, and now I'm home, the TV is on and I'm smoking my first cigarette in three and a half hours. I'm going to get back into my round-the-clock-jammies and settle in for some blog reading, some news watching, and some chain smoking.

In about an hour I'm making Chili for the first time this fall. Mmm, Chili! Tomorrow I might even work outside like a good home owner. I should be out there every day the sun shines until it's done. Taking care of an urban forest is harder than you'd think. And the utility bills need paying. The property tax bill came in the mail today. I haven't opened it yet, so that's probably while I'm smiling still.

You look wonderful! What a great pic! We haven't got our PPT bill yet, but I already know I won't be happy. The assessed values are @ market 2006/7, nevermind that RE is falling faster than W's base.

In my neighborhood property taxes have gone up. They've devalued the house but upped the value of the land. Go figure.

Ick. Property taxes. Ours are relatively low, but still, we're going to have to rob Pietra to pay Paula.
