It's been busy around here with family visiting, and potty-going, and house to-dos, and laundry (oh, the laundry!), and lawn mowing, and, and, and...
So sorry I haven't been more timely in updating, but I think you'll find that Mr. Kluges has stepped up to the plate nicely here....
It's Tuesday and neither of us have updated the world in several days. I'll let Ms. Huis herself communicate the interesting tidbits of daily life with one exception.
The in-laws and aunt-in-law were here to visit last weekend and it was fantastic to see them again. We're still a long way away from them, but ever so much closer than Ireland. A visit can be had with a car now, rather than 24 hours of planes, trains, buses and automobiles. A good time was had by all and I'm looking forward to seeing them again soon.
We're holding our breath with the house. We came to an agreement with the sellers on the septic line and the lender has agreed to give us a loan. The seller has agreed to pay us a set amount to fix the septic line, but we're going to be the ones that have to deal with the hassle of fixing it. It's not ideal, but it's fair and good enough that we didn't walk away from the house. We have set the closing date for this Thursday at 9:30 am.
I'm contemplating starting a blog for the house and it's adventures. We'll see if I feel like I have the extra hour or two a week to post. I'm officially soliciting names for the blog if anyone has any ideas.
[Yeah, I was thinking much along the same lines as diplowhat's comment in the previous post, so maybe "The Gods Shake Their Heads House Blog" or "Look What We've Gotten Ourselves Into" or "It'll Be Beautiful... Someday." *grin* - MHH]
