Here it is.

They countered. They only took $2,500 off of their asking. Even my Realtor was shocked.

Dammit- I just want a house. I’m sick of these games. Don’t these people realize they’re in a market that’s spiraling down and fast? Just today the paper from a nearby town had an article saying how the default rate has risen over 1000% from this time last year. That’s 3 zeros, not a typo!

JUST GIVE US THE HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Hat

Hey there, gorgeous- strike a pose.

Mama, mama! That baby has my hat on! That baby who lives in your camera!

Heeeeyyy- he’s pretty good lookin’.

Bonus back shot of the hat.

Cole loves this “hat” and will wear it for a very long time. He can’t put it on by himself, though, so he brings it to us so that we can put it on for him. The hat can do no wrong. Did it fall forward and hit his nose really hard? FUN-EEE! He sometimes entertains the notion of letting us wear it for a bit, but that never lasts long.

But folks- look back at that first picture. I no longer have a toddler; I have a teenage boy who occasionally entertains his poor, ailing mother by putting a plastic salad box on his head and running around in diapers for a little while. While that sounds really disturbing said like that, I think you know what I mean.

At every phone call.

Because I am occasionally called upon to cover for the receptionist, I hear every phone call that comes into the office.

At every phone call I look to see the phone number and rush to compare it to my Realtor’s phone number so that I can pick it up first if it’s him.

I’m making myself sick.

So let’s talk about something else!

Yes, Hannah, we plan to come to SF for the APA. YAY! John and Naomi and the kids will most likely be there too. You can listen to John P try to convince John T to come back into the philosophical fold (which I can tell you ain’t likely to happen any time soon). We will probably only have the weekend, but we’ll try to make the most of it.

If anyone else would like to come to SF for the American Philosophical Association meeting, it is the weekend of April 7-8 (and the week before, but I won’t be there).

On the clothing search front: All of your advice? Equals rockin’ awesome.

However, I live in a small town. We have no mall. We have no real department stores. We DO have a Mervyn’s, a Gottschalks, and a WalMart. Can you please tell me how I am to find a beautiful, suitable outfit for the wedding in March at these three places.

I have tried searching online, I really have! I looked at Saks and Nordstrom and even Amazon online (as well as numerous other places I will never remember the names of because they had NOTHING. NOTHING!), but it goes about like this:



What the fuck? Oh. It only costs $16.95. Wait…what? That’s $1,695.00? I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

And this one too? What the hell is Donna Karen smoking? ‘Cause I don’t want ANY.

And overall: Not really appropriate; and I think I could afford a hem. Or maybe a strap.

So I’m still at a loss. I know what I’m looking for now, but I can’t find it anywhere. Does anyone care to share their secret “Gettin’ Places”? March is coming up fast!

There. That did take my mind off for a second. Thanks guys.

Oh my crappin gawd…

…I did it. I switched to beta.

I’m doomed. I just know it.

I don’t know if that means you have to update your feeds. If so, I’m SO sorry.

Still no news on the house, but my friend just found out that she is going to have a boy. So YAY there!
