    Dear Gods of Clean:
    Wowee!

    Clean clothes!
    Clean sheets!
    Clean hotel room! (except for our stuff strewn everywhere!)

    Dear everyone:
    Thanks for the good wishes. We rode our new foldies for about 15 mi around Lake Mead this morning. I'm still getting used to the gearing, and haven't got the fit adjusted quite right yet, but still it feels like heaven!

    Also, it's Nevada, so we can load up the car with pleasant forms of ETOH, because maybe the only way to survive our construction/destruction is by drinking!
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    First time I've seen ETOH noted somewhere other than an assessment or treatment plan...

    Okay, I'm lost. What's ETOH?

    Malkin, so sorry about your contractor from hell. Hope you can put a notation in on angie's list or something similar so others don't suffer the same fate. Glad you were able to get away for awhile and have fun!

    I have seen ETOH in medical charts which means alcohol abuse. And it is the first time for me to see it other then in a medical chart too.

    It just stands for ethyl alcohol aka ethanol aka the kind you drink (-OH is an alcohol, the full chemical symbol for ethanol is CH₃CH₂OH) - doesn't necessarily denote abuse. I've used the abbreviation in my own notations to myself - don't have much call to use it now that I'm retired. The abbreviation, not the substance.

    Dear Tulip,
    Wow, you are doing so wonderfully with your finances...you are really getting it! Did you really budget and fund all your bills and expenses THROUGH APRIL already?? Funding and budgeting two months ahead is AWESOME! And saving for all those rainy day categories really makes life easier. Ahhhh...

    Congratulations, and enjoy those Arkel panniers--you deserve them (and you saved for them and budgeted for them!). Oh, and that upcoming bike vacation--all saved for and budgeted, too. Have fun and congratulations, again!

    -Tulip

    I use it all the time in my notes...not to drink! Of course, having done my undergrad in chemistry and being in grad school for toxicology (where the favorite example of one of my professors is ethanol toxicity), it gets used fairly often.

    It's pretty common to use MeOH (methanol) and EtOH in science because we're lazy. Then we go out for EtOH produced by some very lovely fungi on Fridays!
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Dear DH- I am very proud of you for completing a 400k rando ride, and doing it in about 19 hours. (Even though I think this randonneuring stuff is a bit extreme). Way to go.

    Dear Real Estate Agent:

    We are not happy with you. The "too busy to deal with us on Sunday" when you know we leave town tomorrow act is getting old. It's not like we're not addressing things you told us about yesterday. As is the "add this to your to do list" at 48 hours until listing. Something like painting the front steps is something you could have told us a while ago (you know, when you gave us the long to do list we have busted our butts to accomplish). And the wunderkind painter that you recommended for the porch - yeah - we're still cleaning up his mess. Not going to let you bring him back for more work.

    We haven't signed a contract with you (that's part of what you don't have time to deal with on Sunday), and we're already t!cked.

    Signed,

    The person who thought you would make her life easier and now has no confidence in you

    Blueberry -- good thing you found out about that RE agent before you signed. RUN far away! There are plenty of excellent agents in the Triangle area, no need to settle for someone annoying, snooty, or who otherwise acts like helping you get your house ready to list is a waste of his/her time.

    STRONG recommendation for Melanie Girard, now at Allen Tate (Chapel Hill, but off 15-501 on the way to Durham, and I suspect she does listings for both cities; she worked in Carrboro when we hired her). She was a dream to work with (almost everything could be done via email, which we appreciated), and got our house sold in 60 days in spring of 2010, when the market was at its worst:

    Good luck!
