new house notes

Me & Steph stopped by the house this weekend and a lot of it is done. Looks great! Fireplace is done, kitchen cabinets are going up, hardwood flr & tile is done. most of the trim appears to be done. not long now.


homesick blues

Had a gig last night in Moline. It went ok. Definately need new heads on the Catalina kit. And I obviously need to get into practicing some solo-like ideas, wasn't happening during the meters tune.

Stop by the house-in-progress: All flooring appearst to be complete, except carpteting. Most of the trim is up. Our builder must have either picked up the cabinets himself or they were delivered. If he picked them up himself, I feel bad he had to do that. My guess is he wanted to get started this weekend. Another thing is that it appears that the fireplace is done. Looks sweet. Some of the Fan/lights were installed too. He's really busting ass to get done. good. It's going to look really nice when it's all done. Really pro job. It's going to suck to move all our shit.

The driveway, sidewalks, back porch are going to have to wait to get poured as it's too cold out. I'm wondering about gutters, A/C, outdoor lighting trim, appliances and ultimately what our final price is going to be when he's all done. We bought all new appliances too. I'll be one broke mofo in about a month. Student loans kicked in also.


house update

went by the house today. Looks like they got more of the flooring done, some of the master bath tile done. It's gonna be real nice when it's all done. Didn't do anything tonight, although it's Friday. Didn't feel like going anywhere. Martini's wasn't enticing enough. I did get ahold of a bunch of Brecker Bros. stuff though. My hard drive is filling up too fast, damn torrents. I also got a Herbie Hancock DVD w/Vinnie Colaiuta. This is the shit. Best thing I've seen in a while.



Went to the ER tonight to get myself checked out. Amazing how fast they respond when you say you're having chest pains. got an EKG, blood work, X-Ray, all came back fine. That's the good news I guess. Bad news is I don't know why I feel like poo. I'm sure it's stress related.
