Still Here!

It has been a month since I posted anything, but I'm still here. With the end of school, new laptop, unfinished house and summer starting, I have been so caught up in minute to minute life. I feel like I am chasing my tail (and four other tails).

I think the most exhausting is the ranch house that will never be completed. There continues to be a zillion decisions and zillion annoying mistakes by the builder. So much for a fab summer with the kids running around being kids and mom finally getting out of the house. My garage is filled to the brim with furniture and other odds and ends for the ranch house. Right now we can barely walk through the garage to get out of the house. The other reason it is frustrating is because it seems we only have this summer to enjoy it so I want it completed ASAP!

We have a fabulous BIG move that is supposed to take place in October -- that is still four months away. Since Jason's company is a company and you never know when the rug can be pulled out from under you, I think I will be holding my breath until we actually move. Assuming we do get to move, it will be a dream come true, but we won't be here to enjoy the ranch (Creekside as we call it) for a couple of years. Hopefully it will be completed in the next month so we can get out and start enjoying cold drinks on the back porch overlooking the creek. I've got dreams of actually cooking food for my family out there instead of heating Schwan's every night (they do have great frozen veggies though). I'm guessing this will be like the adoption wait and once it is finally completed the building pains will be forgotten.

Hi Lela!

Good to hear from you. I do check in almost daily.

I know so well about builder blunders and delays. We're 3 years past our completion date, but that's due to our bad, bad contractor's theft and lying, so hopefully you're ranch project won't go there! Fingers crossed and prayer ascending for speedy completion there - and here!!

Of course I'm dying to know where you might move ..... ;)

Huge hugs and love to all from VA - Barbara
