A down day

I’m having a down day today. We took the day off, the first Sunday we have taken off in a long time. We need it, it was the right decision, but I am slowly coming to the realization that moving by Christmas probably isn’t going to happen. Our roof guy won’t get back with us, we have had to do a lot more ourselves than we were planning, and there are still so many things that need to come together. It isn’t going to happen in five weeks.

It’s sad because I really wanted to give the kids a Christmas in the new house. We haven’t had a tree in years (this will be our third), and it would just be the perfect way to make the move, but it’s not a big deal. It will happen. Someday it will happen. For now I can spend some time being a little sad and then we can get to work again.

This week we should be finishing putting up the major parts of the outer walls, putting up the wall to the greenhouse that will also support the roof, and hopefully ordering g the roof trusses to be delivered and installed next week. We also need to work on concreting the rest of the inside tires. We are so much further than even six months ago. I’m excited to see where we are in another six months.
