We’re in the home stretch, so to speak. That stage in home construction where you wonder, “What else is there left to do?” – but there’s still two months left until closing. I’ve been through this before, but it’s still a grind. I’ve exhausted all my “pass the time” techniques – window shopping and planning on furniture, planning the network/home automation, etc. All the lists are made and waiting on closing. Dog Days of Summer, indeed.
In preparation for the move, I’ve been trying to find the cheapest yet most efficient way to move the wine collection. Yesterday I discovered BungoBox – and I think that will work out perfectly. Lay a towel in each crate and stack the wine. I’ll be handling the moving of the wine myself. For everything else we’re hiring movers.
With travel, etc., July was a big month. We’re happy to lay low for August.
Last night was the Weezer and Pixies concert – two bands that I really love. When I saw the announced tour I immediately jumped onboard. VIP tickets, merchandise, and Pit access.
They didn’t disappoint – Pixies were great, song after song was yet another favorite. Weezer, as well, though their part had more showmanship and pyrotechnics.
The venue, Austin360 Amphitheater, was pretty nice. All in all it was a great evening out.
And another song that is in heavy rotation for me…
I can’t stop singing this song. So good.
This is a great article in the New York Times detailing out how to get your information that Facebook and Google knows about you. I highly recommend reading it. The video is also good.

The rep for our builder sent an update email today. The rough-in for the HVAC is going in, and the external sheathing has completed. Also, they said right now it’s looking like a 9/12 closing (but of course that will probably change). Exciting!
I’ve added the photos to the Austin Home album.
