Jim and I are leaving for the Third Annual Berkley Beach Vacation tomorrow. Tony, our contractor, texted that “we should have some dramatic changes when we get back”. I’m now envisioning us returning from our vacation, with a big crew smiling and cheering us as we pull up in the limo. No bus, but we are told to close our eyes as we ride the elevator up to our floor, and open the door to our condo. The place is so beautiful that I’m overwhelmed with joy and begin to sob. Someone then hands us a check that will pay the balance of our mortgage. We are grateful and promise that we will have the best dinner parties at our new place and everyone is invited. Okay, so that’s not going to happen. But I am really excited to see what gets done while we are away! Go crew!!!
