This week has been full of nothing but troubles!

First, we found out that the guy who put a contract on the townhouse wanted to rescind his offer because of asbestos siding. That's a pretty lame excuse because you only have a few choices for siding-wood, fiberglass or asbestos! There is one good thing about this...there was another offer on the house, not as good as the first, but we're excepting their contract.

Our second round of troubles was with the new house. The a/c unit in the attic decided it didn't want to work properly and the pan that collects condensation overflowed. Jason noticed this in the BASEMENT! The builder came over yesterday and hopefully (keep your fingers crossed) fixed the problem.

The last bit of trouble this week was just for me! (I feel so lucky...) I was informed that one of the classes that I registered for was canceled. I did register for another section, but I will be in two classes at the same time for a short period of time (about 3 weeks) while still teaching. I think I will be going insane. I am looking forward to one of the courses-Young Adult Literature. I've already started reading YA books for the class. I have to read 25 books from various lists and annotate them. I'm sure there will be some other projects to complete as well.

In knitting...
I have been doing some! I've been working on a present for a family member who is getting married later in the year. I won't be talking much about it just in case the person in question happens to see my blog.

To my secret pal...
Hopefully, we will have internet access next week at home and I will be able to post a pic of the lovely package you sent. I love the 2 skeins of blue/purple/green yarn and of course my favorite Bath and Bodyworks scent...Coconut Lime Verbena bubble bath!

Hello Kate!

Unfortunately these kind of troubles always come up, and they usually come in threes, so the good news is you should have had them all now - and 2 of 3 are resolved or close to it! And as for the too many classes thing, I know it will be crazy, so it's a good thing you are as awesome, brilliant, talented and amazing as you are, cause you will be able to handle it!

Talk to you soon!
