So, progress on the new-house front seems to be moving right along, with all the appropriate parties doing all the appropriate things. If everything stays on track, looks like we could be in the new place by the end of August, woowho!
Apparently the better-half took a trip over to the new place sometime over the weekend, and took the in-laws along to see the place (atleast from the outside). My understanding is that while one parent is in “I’m so proud of you” mode (it must be a father thing, as mine appears to have had the same reaction, based on reports from a 3rd party), the other is in… well…
Her standard mode of thinking. (“Well honey, you know I love you, and I dont want to say anything to upset you or anything… the house is nice.. but the neighborhood is.. um… welll…..”)
I can only hope she doesnt say/do anything to upset the better half too much over the upcoming weeks/months.
You know, I guess we *could* have avoided all this by buying the death-trap house from hell… it was in the right neighborhood, and it was only what, 20 grand more? (And, of course, a DEATH TRAP.. but thats not the point here, the point is it would have made someone happy..)
Just not the people living in it.
