Mi Casa es… NUEVA CASA!
Who knew that in this day in age they would allow me to borrow enough money to buy a house? I am still surprised but very excited at the same time about homeownership. This is very accomplishment if you consider that where I come from buying a property is very difficult challenge. I cannot believe that yesterday along with my wife we became homeowners.
I am thrilled with the prospect of making one of the rooms in the house “The Clot Buster’s Headquarters.” I know you are thinking the same thing as I am… polka dots all over the place just so that I can get that extra motivation to train and continue this fundraising effort beyond this summer. Although, Mrs. Clot Buster is a supporter of the fundraising project not so much of the room… Maybe with enough support I can persuade her… what do you think?
So, as of Tuesday August 29th I am not longer renter. Let me tell you that is been a long time coming… I don’t even want to imagine the number of Clot Buster jerseys I could have manufactured and later used to sweep so that everyone knows about blood clots and blood clotting disorders.
Please don’t tell anyone, but my training is taking a hit as we try to move into our new place. I think that commuting to work Thursday and Friday will be my solution for the training problem this week. I will be riding past the infamous tree so I will have to see what is left of it. I am bringing the camera to document the remains of the fallen tree.
For the time being I am looking forward to finding a spot for my beloved hammock in our backyard… soon enough I will be swinging away in a cool Sunday afternoon…
I have to get back to my moving.
Thanks for reading,
The Clot Buster
