August 12, 2014 - Day 139
Yesterday we closed on our house! Here’s part of the backyard with our black dog running through it. I could say a lot about the house-buying experience and the closing process and all that crazy stuff, but this is a blog about commuting, so let’s stay on topic. We finished all our paperwork yesterday at about noon, did a bunch of DMV and car repair stuff, then went to the house. We stayed the night and left about 7:30 this morning to go to work. My wife dropped me off at 145th street to take the 3 to the 1, while she drove back to Bed-Stuy to go to her job there. Taking advantage of summer fridays, our plan is to go up there every Thursday evening and stay until Sunday night. So I won’t really start taking the train in until September. So the commute itself today isn’t of particular interest… unless you count that it took us about an hour to get to 145th street from the house. Oh, and the dirt road driveway is currently a nightmare. Hope we figure out a solution to that.

watching on Kindle Fire: SimStory— I’d like to do some minor edits then send it off! Pacing wise, I think it’s doing pretty good, but we can certainly eliminate the ‘criminal mastermind gets his ass stolen from’ story if we want to tighten things up. We’ll see how that goes.

More autoawesomes because why not?

My wife insists on birthday cakes. Even if said recipient of birthday cake was in a different country for his birthday and it needs to be given to him exactly one month late. No one’s complaining.
