Taking the bad with the good (and good or bad? who can really ever know)

I apologize that this has become such a visually uninteresting blog lately. We used to have two digital cameras floating around; one on each level of our home. I let Hannah take one to college, however, and now the remaining camera never seems to be there when I need it. I will try to do better.

We are still combing hair with metal combs over this way. And I think I’ve tried every homeopathic product known to man for ridding us of lice. The latest one was cedar oil. The upside is that the house is smelling rather fragrant these days.  I still plan a report-out (can you tell I used to be in the corporate world?) on all of these products, but I will do so after we move.

Oh yeah, did I mention that we are moving? Yep, in the middle of all of this lice mayhem, we are moving. Just four more nights in this house. Earlier this past spring, we decided that we wanted to move to be closer to Josh’s school. I told Chris in April that I couldn’t put the house on the market this year–too much trouble keeping it clean with a toddler etc. I said, “basically, someone will have to knock on our door and offer to buy our house for us to sell it this year.” I actually prayed that this would happen. And you know what?We received a postcard from a real estate agent in May, which stated that he had buyers who wanted to buy in our neighborhood and would we be willing to show them our house. Chris was on a business trip, but I didn’t waste any time. I called the number on the card and well, we’re moving later this week.

So you have to take the bad (lice), with the good (home buyers find us and we get to move to cool 100 plus year home near Josh’s school that is also within a 3-minute walk of one of my favorite food co-ops).

Favorite expression of the month: “Barn burnt down, now I can cut my hair.” I say weird things sometimes, you know, just to keep myself going.

Oh, I know what I can do. I can post a photo of our new house from the real estate listing (so it isn’t our furniture in the house).

  1. I’m sorry about the lice, and I’m sure you guys must be crazily packing and trying to get everything done. We are very excited that you’re moving closer to us! Looking forward to seeing your new house once you’ve had a chance to settle in. Good luck with the move!
