01.03.04  The (not) pink house - Last week..... On Monday night, Ice had a meeting. On Tuesday night, we all had dentist appointments and were relatively late getting home. On Wednesday night, Ice worked until 1am and didn't get home until close to 2am. On Thursday... (tags: )

02.03.04  A break - J is sick. He hasn't been to school yet this week and it's not looking like he'll be going tomorrow. I wonder which of the girls will be next.... (tags: )

15.03.04  Graduating from ohmygod - The counter offer came back today at only $5,000. more than we'd offered. We accepted it and signed the papers. I'm still in shock. There are a few more items to deal with — financing details, home inspection — so... (tags: )

22.03.04  Time for a new bank - Through no fault of ours and unless Ice can pull off a minor miracle tomorrow, it looks like we won't be getting the house. The bank informed me that there was a problem half an hour before the appraiser was... (tags: )
