90 minutes was all it took at yesterday’s open house. An offer has just been accepted and we should have new neighbors in June.

3/18/2013: National Grid home energy report (again)
I know I just blogged about this, but we need to circle back to home energy reports because National Grid is telling me that I use 40% more gas each month than “my efficient neighbors.” How is this possible?! I have insulated every part of my house. I had insulation and Great Stuff adhesive stuck to my hands for like 2 weeks! I couldn’t put the last National Grid report down because it was stuck to my hand!
Ok, ok, ok — I’m getting worked up. Too many exclamation points. Need to calm down. Namaste….
Ok — I’m in a better place now.
I’m not seeking enlightenment, only energy efficiency. If you are in National Grid’s “Great” category and willing to share your secrets, please let me know. I can’t hold this pose forever.
3/15/2013: New construction in W. Newton Hill for $4M
Ever wondered what a $4M home in W. Newton Hill looks like? Take a gander….
Shouldn’t be any issues at the home inspection, right?! Everything looks ship-shape here!
This home on Chestnut Street is currently being demolished to make way for a new 6,000 sq/ft home. The gambrel-style home will have 5 beds, 5 baths on just about a 1/2 an acre.
Let me know if you have $4M laying around and want to make this happen.
3/15/2013: Overnight parking ban
Just a quick thank you to “JC” for the 3am parking ticket last Thursday night. I got caught up watching the Bruin’s game and forgot to pull my car into the driveway. I walked out to my car Friday morning and noticed this on my windshield…
I also noticed that my car stunk. Now I didn’t attend Police Academy like “JC” — but here’s my crime log for the night:
3:00am: “JC” notices my car parked on street, exits traffic cruiser and issues VIOLATION.
3:01am: the skunk that stalks our yard sees “JC” issuing said VIOLATION and is like “oh HELL no.”
3:02am: skunk sprays “JC” and he flees scene.
I don’t have much evidence to support this story, but I know I got a $5 ticket and my car stunk.
Overnight parking ban ends April 15th, folks. Until then, $5 tickets for parking on-street between 2-6am.
3/4/2013: Backyard movies
I’ve been talking with a few neighbors about doing some backyard movies this summer for the kids on the street. We could put up a big screen, lay down some blankets on the grass and fire up Finding Nemo or whatever the kids want to watch. As long as it’s not Toy Story 1, 2 or 3 or Cars 1 or 2 — I have seen each of these movies 97 times. If it was up to me, we’d be watching a George Clooney flick every week. Did I just write that?
If anyone has a big screen, projector or audio equipment — let me know. We could also use a popcorn maker. And a full bar for the big kids. Or at least a cooler with wine & beer.
