Land at 12:00, get home thru traffic from hell at 4:00 pm, nap...and get to work at 12:00am. Work all night and returned to reality. The garage was a mess, the house was a mess, but the CRX has an engine in it now. So I forgive the messes. The dog was taken care of, and after I laid out all my staches from the mini-shopping spree in Japan...it doesnt even fill half a suitcase. Ohh well. So the wifes mom gave us about $10Ks for a down payment on a new car for the wife, so its Subaru shopping soon. And the $30Ks they loaned us for the house's down payment was turned into a present. So now I don't have to pay them back. I also have that HELOC thats going to rebuild the house up, and get the place looking sweet, the wife wants to live here until she gets a college degree, so I'll refinance after the house is done, and re-appraised after dumping $67Ks into it, and change it over to a 30 year fixed loan for $200Ks. IT will be about the same payment I make now anyways.. The cars will get done when I can get to them, the house will be done, and I'll focus on just working and saving up more money, so when I get a job offer in Japan, I can sell everything and move, have some money to buy a house and ship the crap I want to keep over there. I'm done with living in America....I'm ready to move back to Japan permanently when the right job opens up. In the last 10 years we've lived in America, the last 2-3 weeks were our best times we've had in a long time. And the second job might start up after I get one or two projects done...the extra income will help. Realty sucks. Ohh well, now to type up a post on the house rebuild.
