Back in Utah

After being in snowy and cold Massachusetts for about 3 weeks,
I am back in Utah where it is . . .
also snowy and cold.
No picture here as my old computer in Utah is not as smart as my new computer in Tucson or Suzy's computer, but I'm sure you can imagine the white stuff covering the BBQ on the deck.

I have been spending a lot of time the past few days with my friend, Turbo Tax. It's sad to realize that even if you don't make as much money, and your 401K is a mere shadow of it's former self, there are still more taxes to pay.

I've also been spending time at the rental property we have here.
Every room has been repainted, we have put in new fixtures and faucets, and new appliances are expected next week. Ken has replaced the old floors with tile in the kitchen and bathrooms, and new carpet is to be installed in the next few days. Just a few other things to finish up and then . . .
we will test the Utah real estate market.
Doesn't that sound fun?

The 81 degree Tucson weather isn't waiting for you. It will probably be nearing 100 when you get back. Make sure to grab some pictures of the rental, even if you can't post them now. Taxes, ugh. I've heard the UT property market is still fairly solid, maybe there is some light that the properties weren't in CA or somewhere else hard hit.

The snow will melt fast. You have to admit it is beautiful.
How long are you here?
