While the Boss is Away…

Happy Friday folks! I’m up late writing this post after a long day of work.  We had an amazing estate liquidation in Palo Alto today and when the house was empty (at 4pm) I headed over to this weekend’s estate sale house to price and put on final touches. I came home to dinner on the table (thanks Chris) and about 4 hours of work to catch up on. Most people would just go to bed and put it off but I know that with the pace we are working I don’t have that option.

I still can’t believe we are on our 4th estate this week! My first year in California I only did 2 estate projects the entire year, man things have changed!  The next 8 weeks will be extra busy with clients that want to tackle organizing projects and estate projects before the year-end.  I always anticipate this so I took a much-needed week off last week to travel to Michigan and North Carolina for some milestone events in my family.  My dad celebrated a birthday, my granny turned 90, my nephew turned 2, and my newest niece was baptized.

Kuzak's Closet Family

Being the organizer that I am I coordinated making it to all of the events and I am so glad.  We started the trip in North Carolina and spent a few days with my brother Nick and his family and my brother Christopher. My sister also flew in for the weekend making  it the first time in 2 years that my siblings were all together.  My parents were so glad to get to spend time with us as a group and we had a lot of fun.  We cruised around Lake Norman on a pontoon boat, had drinks, shopped, and celebrated.
