I’m very pleased with the strength gains I’ve made over the past few months. I feel that I’ve done a good job of preparing myself for my upcoming bulk, which starts a week from Monday.

If things go as planned Lisa and I will be moving at least once during my bulk, and probably twice! If our house sells and the new owners don’t want to let us stay here and rent from them until our new home is completed, then we’ll have to move to a rental house for a short time. I don’t think I’m going to bother to set up the Titan in the temporary place, and will probably just join a gym for a couple months. That should be interesting, as I’ve always worked out at home. At least if I join a gym I can finally trade war stories with everyone about all the guys with twigs for legs doing curls in the squat rack. 🙂

Speaking of selling this house, the couple who came for a showing yesterday loved it! In fact, after touring the house they came back an hour later with their contractor to discuss some changes they want to make if they go forward with the purchase. They were a nice older couple, probably “empty nesters”, and are exactly the type of people I thought would be attracted to this house. I think they are into gardening, and they seemed to love our landscaping. Needless to say, we’re very hopeful.

Speaking of “hopeful”, I’ve probably heard “Don’t get your hopes up!” at least a half-dozen times in the past 24 hours. Huh? Of course I’m hopeful! How could I not be? It’s not like I can turn off my natural reaction to having someone in this crappy housing market take a keen interest in our home. Heck yeah my hopes are up, and if they don’t proceed with an offer I’ll be mighty disappointed. It’s not like I can suppress my natural feelings. What’s so wrong with being hopeful about something?

It’s been a long and extremely busy work week, so I’m very glad the weekend is finally here. I don’t have a whole lot planned, and that’s a good feeling. I’m going to be making a couple of trips with Lisa out to the new house to check on things. The HVAC, electrical and plumbing “rough-ins” were all completed over this past week, so yesterday I made a big update to my new home construction journal (an upgraded forum membership is required) with a bunch of new pictures and a 13-minute video that I made. I think the roofers will be on the job this weekend, and they will get the roof tiled and trimmed out in a single day. Next week the low voltage wiring will go in, and that will be followed by the insulation. After those tasks have been completed and inspected the drywall will be installed. The drywall phase is a very big job and a quite a milestone in the construction process. I can’t wait!
