A Whole Lot of Nothing

It's been a bit over two weeks since I've posted, but there has just been a whole lot of nothing going on.

I thought I would be able to tell you that we started construction, but I can't.  We had our Pre-Construction Meeting on July 30th.  The builder's policy is that when 80% of the units in a building are sold, they can begin construction.  However, the county (or whoever the powers that be are) has decided we can't start until the building is 100% sold >.<  So, we are waiting on one more unit to go to contract and then we can start.  

In other news, my 2.5 year stint as a housewife is coming to an end.  On Monday I start a 2-week class so that I can get my Real Estate License.  My days are always wide open (and a bit boring a lot of the time)  and I realized that all my little ideas for the new house add up to over $20k.  So yea, if I wanna make it happen, time to get back to work!

Quick Cooking Tip

I had the cooking channel on one day for background noise and caught a tip that has made a huge impact:  use a potato masher when cooking ground meat.

I have no idea what show this came from, but it works so well!  I've used this trick a few times when cooking sausage for my tomato sauce.  It breaks the meat up into the perfect little chunks and it cooks up much faster.  This is one you have to try!
