For everyone wondering how the house is going, we are not going to build. We have decided that it is more money than we want to spend right now and I don't know how to downscale the house to make it any smaller because I basically don't want to, I liked it the way it was. I semi regret selling our beautiful home on Hankins Street with the extra lot and big yard, but we were outgrowing it. We have another project in the works. Don't really want to express that here, but it will be fine and nice once it is ready which will hopefully be by Christmas. I'm glad for this since a tradition at our home is that my mom and stepdad come up and spend the night on Christmas Eve, we bake cookies for Santa and watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and that way they are there to see the kids in the morning with all of their surprises. I was very disappointed knowing that we might not be able to that this year. We are still moving to the country which I am glad of, back to the peacefulness that Chris and I knew growing up since both of our parents lived a little out of town most of our lives. We still have our $1,000.00 blueprints so maybe one day. This has been the most difficult time for me as I never imagined that the house would have been as high as it was. Very disappointing.
