Moving to Burbank

Five months to the day.

On September 6th, 2012 we put a bid in on a short sale in Burbank.  On February 6, 2013 we got the call from our realtor that we were home owners.  It was a long 5 months, waiting and hoping and annoying our fabulous realtor Norma, and I have high hopes that the wait will be worth it.

The plan was, as soon as we got keys we would start demo work, and get moving on getting the place ready for us to move in.  But, as life doesn't always go the way we would like, we hit a few bumps in the road. This past weekend was supposed to be spend readying the place, but due to the bad weather back east, my cousin got stuck here in CA so we had a house guest.  It was wonderful to have family here, and we did drag her around to Home Depot, the Container Store and back and forth to the condo a few times, but we also hung out, went to dinner, drink wine and strolled the board walks of Santa Monica and Venice.

Lots of ripped up carpet
We didn't get approval in time to do the concrete floor we were looking forward to, so we are going with carpet tiles, and we did pull up the old carpet ourselves to save some money.  I hate painting so we hemmed and hawed and finally ending up hiring someone to do it for us, thanks Danny.

Still have a lot to do; packing, moving and all that kind of stuff.  I'll do my best to keep you updated.
