So Long, Rehoboth!

Today we head home after almost a week in Rehoboth.  We saw some really great houses and some not-so-great houses.  There was one house that we didn't get to see, but from the Internet it looked pretty good.  And it didn't hurt that Tony Kornheiser, a famous sportswriter, lived on the same street.My sister and I are really set on one particular house (pictured above), but my parents find it too modern, too expensive, and full of too many staircases.  They're worried about our dog and how she'll navigate the house.  I'm not worried; Maddie's a smart and resourceful dog.  The house is sold furnished, and that was part of what sealed the deal for me.  The furnishings include an HDTV in nearly every bedroom (of which there are six!); a Blu-Ray player hooked up to a ridiculously large home theater system; a wall panel in almost every room with controls for iPod and radio playback; a gigantic shower with an outside entrance; and a heated pool with miniature fountains…

Next Stop: Rehoboth

I'm pretty sure that volunteer work with OCP was my first real job.  And what a job it was.  I met some really nice people; helped fix errors, streamline documents, and generate new content; and learned valuable workplace skills.  Now that I've had a semi-cube-farm-esque job, I'll be ready to take on another one when the time comes.  I also got enough community service hours to satisfy my recently-concluded school year, as well as next year.  Considering how hard it was to find a good community service job this year, I consider that payment enough.Happy Father's Day to all fathers, by the way.  This morning I tried to get our dog to wear a messenger bag stuffed with newspapers as we brought my dad breakfast in bed.  Not only was it too big for Maddie, but it also scared her half to death.  After several failed attempts to get her to bring my dad her own card, we gave up.  I don't mean to harp on Maddie, it's just ... oh, for god's sake, she can't even r…

Oh, Hello Again!

Wow, I completely forgot about this blog. I've been busy recently and I haven't had much time to write a lengthy post. Here's what I've done in the past few months:Finished school and taken two exams, one in math and one in science. Fully revamped my homepage, ericjgeller.com. Purchased and organized lots of equipment for my video studio. Turned 17. Not a very busy life, I know. But it's the little things that kept me from blogging.Anyway, I have a jam-packed summer ahead of me. This morning I started my community service job at my county's Office of Consumer Protection. I worked from 10 AM to 3 PM. I'm doing that for the rest of the week. This Thursday, I have my first in-car driving lesson. From June 19th through June 24th, my family and I will be in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. We're looking to buy a beach house there. On June 27th I have my next in-car driving lesson.During the week of June 30th, I'll be doing tech work at my school from 10 AM to 3…
