In Lay Terms

Random Ramblings From a Church Nerd

Saturday, August 09, 2008


Today, Richard and I worked on a small apartment building that we own. This building was an investment we made about five years ago. In retrospect, it was a poor investment. We are not building management-type people, and this building has sucked up more time and money than we want to put into it.

Often, we go to the building, and leave rather depressed that we spent more time working on a building that isn't getting any better. There are other times when we get ourselves mentally prepared to go and perform specific tasks, when those tasks are complete, we head home.

Today was one of those days. We prepared a to-do list that was pretty manageable. We went for about four hours and worked hard to get those things done. We also looked, and prepared a to-do list for next weekend. We also have some bigger projects that need to be done. We are deciding that we should probably contract out those bigger projects, so we need to get bids on those projects.

Today, the building did not leave us defeated. We left feeling like we got stuff accomplished. I'm sure it won't be like that every time, but it felt good to leave the building in a good mood.

Of course, if someone came by to offer $750,000 for it, we wouldn't complain too much either!
