Smoke Free


We spent last weekend house sitting for a friend so we could run an OZONE GENERATOR to try and eliminate the smoke smell from our house. Even though the EPA discourages the use of these generators and discredits their ability to successfully remove odors, I have to say that it totally worked! We just made sure to air out the house before coming back in. But it's so nice to have a fresher smelling place. The kitchen has a lot of wooden cabinets which we think have absorbed a fair amount of smoke. So there's still a very slight smell in the main level of the house, but the rest of it smells SO MUCH BETTER! It's amazing the difference. We can actually smell our fresh clothes after a wash.

Anyways, so that's been our focus this past week. For the next two weeks I'll be out of town again on business so Celeste will brave it alone. Luckily I get to come home on the weekend. Otherwise things are pretty mellow here. We're sad we aren't going anyplace exotic for the holidays but we're super stoked that Mom is coming here for Halloween, and that Mom and Dad are coming for Christmas. And of course, we're excited to see Austin & Sarah and their new addition in February.

You know that Halloween time back East is great because they have all these cool graveyards that are perfect for a twilight game of "hide and go seek". Sorry coming to Denver for Thanksgiving doesn't qualify as an exotic trip for the holidays. It will be fun for us - "Wicked" may be in town then.

You guys still had trouble with the smoke smell?! We are definitely going to be extra careful about that (if we every actually get to buy a home).
