Dear Winter please kindly get lost already

Nightingale is out of town and having the place to myself has afforded me the opportunity to do a few things around the house that I've been putting off like getting the composter I bought a couple months ago out of the laundry room and into the now snow free yard. 
this snow exists because it was where I piled all the other snow

Had a couple of friends come over Sat night to see the house, and then we went out for burgers at LeadBelly.  So while they were there i had them help me move a dressor from the basement to the office.  sadly it was too cold to put the new grill together or powerwash the deck. 

It would be great it we make this GNO a monthly or more often event but I don't know if that will happen.  These two are fathers and getting a hall pass is probably hard to come by with but maybe we can make it a quarterly thing.

Last week was my annual condo association meeting.  It seems another owner -- this time a First One -- has bought a house and is going to rent out his unit.  Assuming he goes through with it and all the existing owners who rent continue doing so, we are beyond the 50% limit we voted for in 2012.  Kesha also admitted that the association doesn't have the money to spend on a lawyer to officially change our documentation especilally since we need to focus our money on tuckpointing.

Nightingale and I really want to sell the place.  however, I'm not sure the comps let alone the market is there to support selling at the price I need to avoid bringing money to the table.  With the increase of my property taxes, I'm breaking even on rent but paying the assocation fees out of my own pocket.  I also give 10% to a property manager who isn't really managing my tenant as much as I am.  I'm probably going to get rid of him soon since it isn't economical for me to keep him on.
