We could use a lot of help here and there... [Jul. 23rd, 2010|08:45 pm]
Packing and Moving Help - Lightning Round!
As many of you know we have a contract on a house in the city. For others, this will be your announcement! If the powers that be are kind, we will take possession of the house TODAY. [UPDATE: mission accomplished! We have the key!] Also since Fiery Doom Girl starts kindergarten in August, we need to be out of the house in Florissant by the end of July.  
To this end we have had several successful packing and moving parties. The last ones are this Saturday and Sunday (July 24th-25th) and next Saturday (July 31st). We could really use help moving weird uncategorized items to our new home on Virginia as well as packing. We need vehicles, packin' people, movin' people, drivin' people, etc.
[UPDATE: we need cleanin' people at the new house! The place is kinda trashed, from the last-minute they-didn't-get-out-until-this-afternoon caretakers(?)]
If you have been waiting until the last minute to help, this is it!
We will start around noon each day, and work till we are tired. 
We will feed you dinner and there will be relaxing and merry making in the evening.
Thank you all in advance for your help.
Karen and Geoffrey

Pimpin' History... [Jul. 14th, 2010|09:59 am]
or at least pimpin' Reconstructing History.  Good people, friends of mine, most excellent costumers. Now they need a favor, so they asked me to publicize this.
Go. Look. Shiny? Say so.

Celestial House is on the move -- Part IV [Jul. 9th, 2010|10:48 pm]
Here we go again.  As the month quickly dwindles away and our landlord wants us out by the end of the month, we are once again hauling stuff to the storage space on Lemp in preparation to move into the house as soon as we close. 
We will be taking loads down south Saturday and Sunday and could use more help and vehicles.  Please help out on one or both days if you are available.
We will start around noon and work till we are tired. 
We will feed you dinner and there will be relaxing and merry making in the evening.

******Also please contact us if you are available for hire, for the heavy moving and minor house repair (painting, carpet cleaning).****

Thank you all in advance for your help.

A New Celestial House [Jul. 2nd, 2010|05:01 pm]

As some of you have heard otterhill , FireyDoomGirl, and I are moving back to the city.  We have a house under contract and hope to close soon (fingers and toes crossed please).  Since we need to be out of our rented house by the end of the month, we are currently moving stuff to our storage space at Lemp Brewery. 

Since it's a three day weekend we will be taking loads down south Saturday and Monday.  If you have a few hours to spare, please help out on one or both days.  We will start around noon and work till we are tired. 
We will feed you dinner and there will be relaxing and merry making in the evening.
Also we are looking for members of the heavy lifting squad to hire to move the big stuff on the day we rent the truck. Please contact us if interested.
Thank you all in advance for your help.

Ora pro nobis... [May. 3rd, 2010|02:42 pm]
[mood |excitedexcited]

The background, for those of you who might have missed it, is that our landlord told us that he's going to be transferred to the coast. He doesn't want to be an absentee landlord, so he's selling the house we live in. He'd be glad to sell it to us....

But he's asking $UmNo,000 and we can do better. So we started looking, and with the help of liadan_m (all hail!),we found twice the house for half the bucks. Plus the location is more universally satisfactory: closer to everything (except my work), including Camp Grandma, in the city but close enough to the county that Grandma is forgiving, etc.

So we offered a contract, and they have signed it.  Now the waiting begins...

It's a "short sale," which um isn't. As in "these things do not go quickly." We're hoping to close by mid-June, by which time I shall have no nails left at all, at all.

We'll be starting the packing way before then, though.  And the moving. I'm thinking we can starting throwing things back into Lemp storage.

But when all this is done, we should be back, baby! at Loughborough and Virginia, and will probably be getting back into the party-throwing business. Yay us!

Ora pro nobis...

Bad news, good news... [Aug. 31st, 2009|08:54 pm]
[mood |draineddrained]
[music |purring]

As some of you may have heard, Friday was a day of some suckage.

Went to bed Thursday with two cars in the driveway.   Woke up with one.

Yup.  Someone stole our car.

I try to be a good kind-of-a-Buddhist, and not be too attached to things, but, y'know, this is a big thing.  Filled with a lot of other things.

several folx asked if our insurance was moose enough to cover theft.  BWAHAAHAno. We have the kind insurance that keeps one from being arrested.

A bunch of you visualized the car coming back safe and sound.  And, well ...

Apparently it was the 24-hour kind of stolen.

Got a call from St. Louis Metro Police at 1:22 Saturday morning.  Did we lend it it to some Keith guy before reporting it stolen?  No?  'Kay.  Keith go byebye now.  Wanna come to O'Fallon Park right now to pick up car?  As opposed to towing/impoundment?  Sure!

Some minor but annoying things now missing, a dozenish big ol' beer cans removed from the passenger compartment, a hearty Febrezing and airing-out, and a complete decluttering/inventory later, things are back to the usual dull roar.  Oh, and a certain minor bruising to my trust in my fellow man.
