I'm still here

After two days of cold and clear, it snowed again last night.

I've been doing the rounds with my insurance, old landlord, and the checkbook. The landlord conveniently came up with a list of "damages" to the house (including painting the whole thing) that equals (within 3 GBP) the amount of our security deposit plus the amount left in our heating oil account. Grrr. My insurance only covers $1000 worth of "damage to personal property" - the $100,000 liability only works if the whole house goes up in flames. Whatever. The base housing office said they will mediate between us and the landlord if necessary. I wrote the landlord back, going through the list with what we agree to and don't agree to; we'll see what they have to say.

On the up side, we got our tax refund today. Pretty exciting to see the savings account balance jump up so much at one whack.

Bob hasn't had a chance to work on his car, so he's still driving the van and we are stuck at home.

Tomorrow is the homeschool bowling day, but unless we get up at 5:30 to take Bob to work, we will have to miss it this month. Saturday we are going out to Orford to work on portraits we are doing there next week, and plan to be home in time for my neighbor's Pampered Chef party. Sunday is pot luck after church, so I'm cooking meat for chili now. I'll whip up a cake Saturday night.

Be blessed.
