Our winter home has been damaged, and it’s unclear if we’re ever going to live in it again. As a result, we find ourselves making due, but we’re asking for help.
Looking at my personal "On this day" photos, and it became apparent that on this day 2 years ago I was in Coarsegold, California, where I had got myself in a hell of a pickle, and was helped by one of the most generous people I've ever met.
Devin discovered "the mouse" today. Apparently Bennett has been showing him how to use it while playing his games on his laptop. Came out of the shower to find Devin clicking around my PC, so I redirected that curiosity into something that won't inadvertently wipe my hard drive 🙃 in the process.
Welp, our land offer was not good enough, apparently. we lost on terms (again). I hate this feeling so much, and it keeps happening. You spend so much time and energy just...choosing the place, only to have it ripped away by a cash buyer. I hate purchasing real-estate so, so much.
At least we're starting to see new options crop up. Maybe we'll have more luck in the future.
My wife spent like 3 hours on the beach with Bennett today, looking for seashells. As I approached her, she came running up to me looking like what you see in the photo 😂. She was so dang excited to find a fully intact conch shell in the water, and got soaked going in after it.
