Best News Ever...for me anyway

Today is April 12, and they were supposed to close on the rental yesterday. We got the call on the 6th that something came up in the buyers credit that prohibited the closing! I was absolutely beside myself with relief. I really do feel sorry for the seller of the home but living in a hotel was more than I could take. I was actually in denial about the whole idea of it and only recently started thinking about how we would handle the situation. We were planning on getting a storage building for all our belongings on Monday the 9th. Thank God we are such procrastinators. It was kind of a real life scenario of what would you take with you if you were stranded on a desert island. The only thing I could think of that I couldn't live without is gum. As you can see, I didn't make it very far in my planning.

Things seem to be settling down a little. The kids are finished with soccer. ChaChi turned in his BioCube and Ansley had her state parade. She got extra credit for dressing up like someone from her state. She asked the morning of the parade who she could dress up like. Taylor Swift is from Pennsylvania, so we grabbed last year's Easter dress and considered ourselves clever.

Here is ChaChi's school picture. He's just as cute in Mario and camo as anything else!

Things are going well with the house. We had our framing inspection and failed the first time with just a handful of things they wanted done. We passed our second inspection. The brick is complete and we are now on to insulation. I spend most days over there cleaning up. I caught one of the guys peeing beside the dumpster. I pointed at the portable toilet 10 feet away and told him to use that, he just smiled and nodded.  I guess I shouldn't have said anything because now the inside of the dumpster reeks of urine.

We survived Easter with are 2nd Annual Easter Fishing Trip. The kids went swimming two years in a row in freezing water.

Anlsey is showing her friend how to bait a hook with a worm. Too cute!

We let the kids take off in the canoe without any instruction on how to work the paddles. We thought this would give us some quiet. Too bad those kids are so smart, they figured it out pretty quickly and were back in no time.
