A quick update

prettypammie got another cake--sorry, no pictures this year.  We were all too exhausted.  It's been one of those weeks already.  We went to the Horse World Expo last weekend.  Q really enjoyed the Tommy Turvey [sp?] trick riding; poor Pam shopped for barn vendors.  I've contacted a whole slew of banks.  They all need to get right down to brass tacks about what their terms and interest rates are.  Farm Credit may end up being the big winner, because they are a cooperative.  I thought USAA couldn't be beaten.  We shall see.

The cake--it was a three layer creating, courtesty of a mad dash to the grocery store and to sew_200e's and "Grandpa Bill's" kitchen, since our cake pans, etc., are all in storage still.  [Note to self:  Paid storage bill?  Paid rent?  Both now due.  Do.]

House is basically under roof.  I hope to get out there again this weekend to take more pictures.  Septic system is finished and gets inspected on Monday.  Water should be following shortly.  Power is a big question mark:  they were supposed to be hooked up already, or so I thought, but they haven't even dug the trench.  Oy.

Double-oy!  We worked hard to finish "site preparation" for a Dominion Power 2/17 deadline.  I just went online to check the status of our Service Request.  They haven't "checked the box" for "customer completes site prep."  What do thep need, an engraved invitation?

My stress just pegged again, despite a hard strength and cardio workout at the gym.



This will be over soon, right?
