Good Bye!

Nothing new to report on the house front. It is still for sale. Our offer expires in two weeks.

I am taking the kids on a little road trip. Richard and Lucy will be keeping the home fires burning. I left him an itemized list of everything he needs to do to get the house ready for a showing.

Of course, there has to be a little drama before we leave--yesterday I tried to pack my suitcase. Richard was at his office doing CPR on a server so I was alone with the kids.

While I was upstairs packing, Matthew was flooding the kitchen. He put the stopper in the powder room sink and just sat back an enjoyed the show. By the time Charlotte came to tattle there was so much water in the kitchen it seeped through the floor and left puddles in the basement. I had just finished doing ALL the laundry (a major feat when you wash clothes for five people) It took all of my towels to mop up. Sigh.

See you when I get home!!

I feel your pain! Right now I am washing for 5 people in the hotels laundry room. We are stuck sharing with the other 20 or so families here on our floor!!!

Hope you have a fantastic time, tho not sure how relaxing it's going to be with an almost-two-year-old!!!
Let's get together when you get back...maybe we can go for a drink on a patio somewhere...or just coffee at ff? It'll have to be evening as my days are full now.
TTYS!!!!
