If it's not an early 1900's house then we like them to be ranches apparently. We tried to find the perfect house, but it was almost impossible with our deadline (and budget - even this one forced us to go a little higher,) and the early 1900's one we did find was further away from Mom and Dad West than we wanted to be. (Plus, there was no cell signals within 2 miles of the home.)
This property is a bit more narrow than we'd like, but it met all of our requirements (except garage, but it has a shed) and is within walking distance to some conveniences. I'll get more photos when we get down there next week.
We looked at a lot of houses. There was a 1920's home that was PERFECT for us...well, except that it was only .35 acres of land and had brand new subdivision homes built on either side and behind it...??? (Who does that!?!?)
SO...every time she does this, she talks real loud and describes all the steps...until you get the camera out, and then she's like...crickets....It starts with 1) a little jump, jump, jump, 2) Spin around 3) Touch the ground 4) Roar like a dinosaur 5) Fly like a bee. She had mommy and daddy both doing it... and she filmed daddy, but it's on his camera.

Chris is a happy guy today because he was just informed that one of the guys let go was able to get a job with a different company working on the portable compressors. =D

Writing a short for an upcoming competition, and needed some details of the life that followed the survivors. I originally was just going to skim through this, but it was so amazing and interesting that I took my time getting through it instead.
Another for the project. This book is hands down an enjoyable and engaging read. Really helped bring certain aspects of the story to life.
I know I dogged the last few Sookie's terribly, but I just can't stop myself from giving once favorite authors another try. Not a terrible story, but not really exciting or thrilling. It took me almost a month to finish this one. It was mostly boring with one storyline that kind of hooked me, but I would have been fine closing it and never finishing it. (But I'm loyal like that.) =/
The only thing we know for sure is that the movers will be here on the 25th, and we hand over the keys to the house on the 26th. We're busy weeding through the basement in an attempt to reduce the amount of junk we're paying to have hauled away. We figure we've been out of the Sharpsville house for seven years and in this one for four...any box that is still sealed from the last move (and is not memorabilia I'm too attached to to get rid of) is a good candidate for tossing out. ;)
