spring break

i've been trying to figure out how i'm going to entertain these rugruts during spring break!
i decided that we're just going to go play.

friday, we went to the library, and to see moana again.
saturday and sunday were general conference.
monday, we started working on fairy garden items.
tuesday, we played with kites, chalk, and bubbles at the park.

we also went to bed early tuesday.

we learned that the landlord is selling, and the new "owners" are planning to level everything.
we have found a place that, sadly, borders the highway, but it's a dang cute place.

in order to get the process started with the idaho housing, i have to turn in a 30-day notice. it's in. now we get to wait and see if the house passes, and whether the landlord is willing to work with us.

when i picked up michael from head start today, i locked myself out of the van...

i have a spare, but it was in the car.

thankfully, the insurance was able to call someone to come and open it for me.

i'm getting a key holder to hide under the car so it doesn't happen again.

the idaho housing inspection was today.
sadly, the house failed, big surprise there...

because the downstairs shower leaks, it's non-functional.
now we wait to see what the landlord plans to do.

household woes

the dryer stopped working.
once again, it's the heating element.
    that i replaced 4 years ago....

considering that i've done a lot of laundry in those 4 years, i shouldn't complain too much.
