grumpy about the construction project: good bye house (an homage to Margaret Wise Brown)

We actually closed on our renovation loan tonight. After months of fretting and planning, it all came down to signing and initialIng 4000 sheets of paper. Totally mind numbing. And now we’re good. The new foundation dig begins Thursday.

I guess it’s time for the photo book to help Jesse make her transition; but first, here’s my own transition aid.

And an old floor

and a quiet red ladybug whispering “just go.”
