The day before yesterday our well ran nearly dry. It did this a few months ago and we spent a week or two eating off of paper plates and bathing at my in-laws' house. Unsurprisingly, living without plentiful running water is not something we want to do so we stepped up our apartment search and found something. There was scarcely anything suitable out there but we have to get out of here soon so we picked the best thing we could find for now, and will move in six months or so, when hopefully there will be more available. We'll have to move at some point, because the place we found only has one bedroom! Fine for now, not so great when we want to move Pearl out of our room. But it's nice and open and roomy, good light, affordable, even has a yard. It's a house that was turned into two duplexes, and is pretty funky. It is on too busy a street, and doesn't have a washer and dryer, though there are some on-site. Across the street are sloping fields, a wooded hilltop. That piece of land has been ready for development for years but I guess no one has snatched the opportunity yet, so for now it's nice to look out on.

I'll be offline for a while, packing and cleaning and moving and all that. I leave you all with this picture of my one-tooth wonder's one tooth - the second still hasn't popped through! We're in for a long, slow ride with this teething business I guess!

YAY! You're one tooth closer to the end of teething!

And congrats on the apartment. May the move go easy on your backs and emotions!

Yes, good luck with the moving and the teething. (and if you don't already know, Hyland's Teething Tablets work great and they are all natural, you can usually get them at your local health food store. )

Have a great move, glad you found something quickly even if not the permanent residence.

So cute on the tooth...I think J is following Pearl in her slow teething process.

Good luck on your move! I'm glad you were able to find something, even if it's only temporary.

And yaaay for Pearl's little tooth! In no time at all she'll be growing new teeth like crazy, LOL.

just repeat this over and over as you're hauling your boxes around. Change is good!

And it is, congrats on the new place!

We're sharing a bedroom right now with Bean too--and it works fine! No running water would be MUCH WORSE. Hope the move goes well. And I can't wait until your back online and we can see pictures of the new place and hopefully, another tooth!
