I accidentally deleted my last post called Trifecta. I was doing some blog maintenance getting ready for A/Z and had some drafts of posts I had written but then decided not to post. I was going through those and deleting them and in my "click happy deleting" state I accidentally deleted that one.
Just in case anyone didn't read that one, it was announcing 3 events:
1. House bought (close and move later this month).
2. Baby born (all healthy, doing well).
3. Hubby got a job in the Phoenix area.
Thanks everyone for your congratulations on that post :) Looking forward to getting settled.
Now to other news, so to speak.
We got our taxes done last weekend. That in itself is an accomplishment. Usually I dread it (did this year) and usually wait until the last moment (I kid you not, we have gone as late as April 14th in previous years). But because of moving and wondering about things with selling a house, etc., we decided to get them done early and then if we had to pay we would pay on April 15th (which I think is actually April 18th this year, according to what the guy said we did our taxes). We are getting a NICE refund. Both of us did our withholding as married and zero dependents. It will help with the move.
The neighbor cat across the ravine from us is a hunter (and a good one). I have seen him with a lizard in his mouth at one time and a bird at another time. He likes to hide between our bushes right under the bird feeder and wait and see if anything comes along. The quail usually come by these days late in the afternoon, right when the light is almost out of the sky. The cat has started hanging around at that time too. Several times we have had to go outside and "intervene" to keep the cat from getting to them. He is very patient and I think he glares at us when he sees us breaking up his fun so to speak. It would horrify me if we didn't and he got one of them...... Hubby refers to them (the quail) as the "kids" as in "did you see the kids today?"
We went down to Phoenix last weekend for a baby shower for our little grandson. People had the audacity to want to hold him so I didn't get to hold him much.....that will change in a few weeks. We probably won't be back down there until the actual move as we'll be packing here, etc; but I'm looking forward to getting settled and working out times to see him.
So if we didn't unpack 60% of our boxes while we lived here and we haven't missed anything (well I haven't, hubby has), do you think it is okay if we just give away the things and not even bother moving them????
That would go over with me, but 50% of the things not unpacked were hubby's musical things. I don't think he would be willing to part with them. But it is a thought.......
