Our Crazy Busy Life
Wow! It has been a whole month since I posted here. That has to mean that life has been busy, and that is really an understatement. Since my last post, Noah has returned to school (1st Grade) and I have started my new job teaching 4th Graders. Noah has also become a Cub Scout (that is another post for later next week when I get a chance to photograph him in his uniform before his den meeting). We are adjusting to life in the South! It is a bit of a slower pace, the people are Uber-Friendly and that is SOOOOO wonderful. We have met a few folks (mostly co-workers, and neighbors). Our house is almost finished and we are scheduled to close on Sept. 27. We are fighting with our builder over the shower in our master bath. We are 101% percent sure we ordered a seamless/frameless shower and they installed a framed one. We are hunting down paperwork to prove we are right. Without that, we are stuck with the one they installed. And this comes on the heels of a battle over a gulley they put diagonally through our back yard. They finally fixed that and resodded the backyard (as well as replaced a dead tree they planted--it was not dead when they planted it but died later). Oh, and we had a leak in the roof above our front porch which leaked into the dining room and roiuned a section of our hardwood floors.
But enough whining....the house looks great and we are excited about (finally) moving in. Our house in Virginina still has not sold so we dropped the price (again) and listed it for rent as well as sale (a stipulation of our financing).
But other than that...life is good. Busy but good.
