Chapter Five: Home Again

The fun just never stops here.  We are currently in the final days of the building project.  Our house is ALMOST finished.  The floor is finished, carpet-wood-the whole nine yards…  Trim-done, doors-done, appliances-done.  We have even bought the closet poles and a few shelves for places like the pantry.  Those have to be put together, but easy enough, I say!

About the only thing that is left to do is the siding outside, which has been totally weather dependent, and the counter tops inside, which we are still waiting on to arrive.  Oh, and tile a shower- no big deal!  Other than that- DONE, SON!

Chapter Four: The LONG Winter

“Let’s move to Minnesota” Keith said.

“Don’t worry, it will be fine” Keith said.
“Oh, it barely ever snows anymore” Keith said.

Apparently, we are having an unusually long winter, even for Minnesota standards right now.  When you hear the meteorologist on the radio say the ten day forecast with a sigh of exasperation…  you know it is serious and even the weather man is feeling the strain.
