05 October 1999:

We are in the agonizingly slow period where there are 1001 small things to be done, yet none of them seem to be getting done. The plumber and electrician are finished, the house is wired and has running water. Ceramic time is in, but not yet grouted.

Today the painters were touching up the interior. Carpeting is scheduled for installation later in the week, and final cleanup is set for Friday with our first walk through on Saturday. If all goes well we should get the keys on Friday, 15 October. Great timing, Bob can move our stuff over the weekend while Sandi is tending to Coast Guard Auxiliary business on Oahu...

Mahalo (thank you) for your continued interest...
