Another Y day.....follow up

Real Estate Agent with Phoenix Property Shoppe


Another Y day.....follow up. Well I'm back on the horse and riding in the rain, at least for a Y al! Ha... I got cha again! You probablY thought I was going to get serious again, like an engineer should. Nope. TodaY is not the daY for that stuff.


I've been quite busY with all kinds of projects both with business and our home. We had to prepare (take everYthing down and apart and basically create chaos outside including the garage) so that the house painters could do their job. And then of course we had to put everYthing back in place and that caused us to donate, Yet, more stuff to charitY. And it was all worth it because it's looking great once again. Needless to saY we all have to much stuff.


This weekend we're attending a  2 daY word camp  here in Phoenix.  I am prettY sure we'll be the only non-geek heads there but it will be interesting hanging out with them, soaking up geek head stuff. Neither of us knows code so I hope that's not the presentation language! 


That's all for todaY. Hope You're all having a great week and I'll see you next time it's another Y day.

GarY looks like you had some fun with this blog.  So I decided to have fun too.  You missed a "Y" in "only", one of the "you", and in "valley"

If it was me I would have missed several more than you.  Good job

I think getting ready for painters or painting takes more work than the actual painting.  A few years ago, a family member and I decided to paint my home.  It was the masking off of windows, power washing, and fixing any dry rot we found along the way that took the most time.

Enjoy your word camp. Sounds like fun. I had thought years ago about being a coder but it didn't work out. Glad I stuck with real estate and working with people.
