Hello, I'm living in a hotel.

Cleaned up the house yet again last night. The hardest thing, believe it or not, was removing all of the fridge magnets to a plastic bag for safekeeping. No more Kiwi cows getting it on, Tanqueray bartender pickup line advertisements, Olive Pink Garden, World Cup Fieber 1998... it's all away. And now the house feels like a hotel, a vacation rental. There's very little left of Bear and Marmot that's on display. OK, maybe the Burger King Lord of the Rings glasses and some Japanese bear porn squirrelled away on a top shelf, but man, it really does look like someone else's home already.

The For Sale sign goes up Saturday, and there will presumably be open houses both days this weekend. I'm about to fax off the contract for Dan to sign so that we can get going. MLS listings and virtual tours can't be too far behind.

For those of you in the area, the house is on South 13th at Reed. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, 1800+ square feet, $624,000.
