Addition to the Family

For many years now, the kids have been talking about getting a pet: hamster, cat, dog, squirrel, possum, lizard, anything... Well, it turns out that our son was allergic to the most common household pets, cats and dogs, and I was not going to allow any of the others across my threshold.

Until our daughter showed up from school with this: TADAH!!!

Meet our new pet fish. Apparently, she won them in the school raffle. She left home with a list of people she needed to get gift for at the Christmas Bazaar and $10, and she came back with FISH.

From what I can deduce, she bought me earring for $1, and them sunk the rest of the money into the raffle. There is a silver lining somewhere in there, right?

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
