What's new with us you ask? Well, only everything. Here goes: We are building a new house! Hooray! And, what are we thinking?! We are very excited and scared and nervous all at the same time. But, as nervous as we are never having built a house before,  I have been dreaming of this day for a very long time, and am most excited that my husband has now jumped on the bandwagon. :)
We have a contract pending to sell our house. The closing date is April 30. What's that? When is our completion date for the new house? Yeah, not until like Novemberish. It seems to be changing by the week. Le sigh. So, yay we have buyers for our house! Boo that we have to move twice!

Where are we going to live in the interim you ask? (Man, you guys ask a lot of questions.) Well, as it happens, Matt's veterinary partner, Bill Bayouth, and his wife, happen to own the apartment over the veterinary office, and they are generously allowing us to rent it from them for a very decent rate. Yes, that's right: Matt will not be able to truly escape from work for awhile. And the size of this apartment, you may be wondering? Let's just say that 3 people plus a Great Dane are going to make it very, very cozy in this 1 bedroom space. I am choosing to be positive about this in the following ways:
1. We will grow closer together as a family (right???!!!).
2. We will be saving lots of money for a few months.
3. Who doesn't want to live within walking distance of a Dunkin' Donuts?!
4. These next several months will provide excellent material for my future award-winning star-studded biopic. 

And, there you have it. Life is going to be more interesting than usual round these parts for awhile.
So, what's new with you guys? :)

Our lot before any action started.

Our lot post-clearing. It kind of looks like a fire tore through it, but I can assure you that is not the case!

Here is our lot on drugs. Just kidding! Here is our lot as of last week with the giant hole dug out for where our house will sit. Progress! And hey, who's that cute girl up top? ;)
