Awww, that's so cute. Not only a laundry, but a whole big laundry ROOM! That's going to save you so much time.

I can hardly wait to see how the place looks after you get all moved in.

I may find that some foods are not as available, I have a good stock of chipotle powder, since that was what I couldn't find last time.
I shop 3 days a week for the company. I know where I can find everything, but if it is a Costco request, I send that back to the boss. He has a membership, I don't!

I have a Costco's and a BJ's just minutes away from where I live. BJ's is within walking distance for me. Costco's not so much. I don't have a membership in either one. Every so often BJ's sends through the mail a 60 day free trial with coupons for items I never use. I went there once and it was enough for me. I did buy an item that I had received a coupon for.

BJ's is located on a major highway. A1 can take me to Maine if only my scooter wouldn't run out of juice. But every time I go somewhere along that route, my kids have a fit. There is a sidewalk all the way, and I really don't feel in any danger except for all the exhaust fumes. I think the most interesting time to travel along that route would be between four and five-thirty. That is when all the accidents happen. But I am not that foolhardy.
A few vehicles have flipped right over onto the sidewalk.

We also have a roadway in downtown Boston called Storrow Drive. It has some very low overhead foot bridges and tunnels. There are VERY BIG signs telling you the height of the lowest bridge and even gives you a turnoff if you truck is not low enough. Sure enough, some jerk who knows it all will try to make it through and off comes the top of the truck. Pirate was beside one such truck today. He grabbed his phone, and yelled out his window as he drove by, "Smile"! Big fine for the truck driver, plus the cost of cleaning up the mess and the loss of his job. And now the traffic is backup for miles. Makes me so glad I never learned how to drive.

Andy, it is 6:05 in the morning and I have the news on about the massive fire in your neck of the woods at a condo complex. Anywhere near you? You were my very first thought when I saw the name pop up.

I got a look at that truck that tried to go through the overhead bridge. The stupid jerk didn't even stop when he heard the top of his truck being ripped off. He was more than halfway through when he finally stopped. Sorry about the name calling, but it is the only one that is printable.

We have a bridge in our sister city that claims a lot of trucks as its victims! It's not like there isn't a big sign warning them or anything...

I got my first Costco card as a gift from a co-worker, she added me onto her account. I think you can have up tp 4 cards on an account for nothing extra. Have your boss check into that and see if he can get you a card on his account.

Needs exterior paint, will have to find out how to treat stucco. The front I will be able to paint, thinking of a pale green or lilac color.

As for the laundry room...I really hate laundry.

With a little paint and a couple of cobwebs the laundry room could be converted to a cozy dungeon for a mature ogre.

Oh! Good point. I know that his spouse card is assigned to the other person who sources stuff, but she doesn't have a car...
