Monday (March 17th), on St. Patrick’s Day (the luck of the Irish!) Lynn and I will be closing on our townhouse. Like Cori, (Shelly's Niece) we will be homeowners in Chicagoland. We are about 45 to 60 minutes (depending on traffic) from Cori and downtown Chicago. According to our attorneys, the mortgage company, and our realtor, our money situation is all in order so all we need to do is take a deep breath, jump, and start swimming fast and furious. Medically speaking, I’m doing better. The stint will be removed on Mar. 27th … and I am hoping that by next month I will be up and at ‘em and pounding the unemployment pavement.
