Things are not as black, desperate, and hopeless as they looked just a few days ago. Or yesterday, for that matter.

We still don't have the second mortgage, but we have some good leads and it looks like we may be able to get something lined up soon. At least that's the hope. We may even be able to close on time and actually move in next Saturday as planned.

This morning, Julia and I were over at the new house by 8:00 for orientation. Which means we walked through the house with someone from the builder's office and she told us about the house, it's amenities, it's potential quirks, what to do about them, and that sort of thing. We also looked for little imperfections and stickered them so they could be repaired before we take possession. (Again, hopefully.)

Julia and I are both pretty exhausted and ready to reach some sort of conclusion on this whole saga. Aside from packing, this has filled all of our waking (and sleepless) hours, which isn't as much fun as you'd think.

Oh, I lied. I was able to sneak out on Tuesday to play D&D. Johnzo ran a really well put-together encounter with a bunch of kobolds (what else would you fight at 1st level in 4th Edition D&D?). Despite the fact that my character missed almost everytime he attacked, it was still a lot of fun. Two or three of the other players' characters were dying at some point during the game, but we rallied and took out the little buggers, although one escaped across a bridge and cut it free from its moorings before we could get to it. It was a fun, relaxing evening. Apart from the bad die rolls, that is.

Well, our first level group has been fighting nothing but Goblins, but we're on the cusp of 2nd level (huzzah!), actually now we're shifting to a 7th level campaign to explore that level range.

My experience as a Dragonborn Warlord so far is that he falls down a LOT. But with the Cleric's healing Word and my own Inspiring Word we've really not been too challenged by potential death. And that breath weapon is the ultimate Minion sorter! =)

Good luck with the house stuff!

Don't forget to mention that we got across the ravine anyway using a platform suspended from giant floating lighter-than-air KELP!
