[From Craig] In response to all of the "we want to hear about your getting your house ready for sale" comments to Merikay's last post, I've volunteered to do some of that.
Long-time readers may recall a post last Halloween, in which Merikay noted that our house has 516 pickets in its deck railing, each of which had to be sanded and then stained before we could put the house up for sale. We stopped work on that project when the weather turned. Today we finished sanding and staining the last 71 of the 516. Here are some of them:
Which is not to say our deck sanding and staining are done. We still have 2 1/2 flights of stairs plus two areas of deck boards before our deck work is done.
Between Merikay and I, we will try to keep our home preparation fans in touch with our progress. It's just that we're getting close enough that we want to be careful that our blogging doesn't affect our coming home sale in any way...
