Grooming, not Moving

The good news is that we closed on our old house yesterday as planned! The bad news is that because someone made a big mistake and didn't push the button at the right time we didn't close on our new house, beginning a series of catastrophic events. Hmmmm, I guess "Lost" is rooted in fact. We are now temporarily homeless, relying on the kindness of strangers, and stuck with no toys and no clean clothes in a hotel until at least Monday at noon when we will once again be trusting that someone else pushes a button at the correct time. Because of the big mistake our moving bill has doubled and we're having to eat out at every meal. Believe me people, as fun as it sounds, it gets old fast.

Since staying within the confines of a tiny box of a hotel suite for 48 hours straight is not an option we're keeping busy this weekend by getting pedicures (Isabelle and Aubrey), having our hair cut (Isabelle) and shopping for new hair products (Madeleine).

I sure wish I had some pictures to share but sadly the camera is packed away. Everybody keep your fingers crossed that Desmond does his job Monday morning and the button is pushed!

I'm sad for you...Hopefully the magical button will be pushed and you will be in your beautiful new house soon! Give me a call when you get a chance.

Oh bummer....I was checking all weekend for news on your move, but remember that good things take their time....sort of to make us appreciate it more. Meanwhile, enjoy every take-out you can, because before you know it you will be cooking in the amazing house.

Good luck Monday!

Oh Dear?? Not good. Praying for resolution soon!

Ay yi, yi! I am so sorry you're having to go through this. Ugh! I hope the button is pushed soon, and you get into your new house (and new clothes!). Have fun shopping at least! :-)

I just came across your blog randomly and had to stop and say hello. Your family picture totally drew me in - I don't think I have ever seen such happy people, you are so lucky. Hope all is sorted soon on your new house - it looks amazing!
