10pm and Ryan has gone downstairs to potentially rip out our suite kitchen.
After the Reno cleaners used the sink in there we think it started a leak. The kitchen is a total mess. Particle boards built over pipes. So we can't get to the leak without knocking down the cabinets. The floor is planks over carpet. Wet carpet = mould so this could be bad.
This house is so amazing but the renos that were done to it are completely astounding. The other side of the basement had outdoor planks and sconces on the walls.
Light switches don't work or control really random lights. Our dryer won't start. The bathroom situation is odd to say the least. The upstairs toilet is up two steps. We call it the throne and it's totally ridiculous and somewhat dangerous.

We are no longer living out of boxes which is nice. We've gotten mostly unpacked now and starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel (or maybe not now with impending suite kitchen leakage.)
I only momentarily wish we had bought one of those cookie cutter development houses. It would be terribly boring but not so breakey.
I need a list of good things about it so I feel less sick.
-location is ideal
-super private
-surrounded by trees
-front porch and porch swing
-amazing character
-so much space
-the perfect kitchen
-the grand staircase
-all the wood accents
-the layout
-the fact that aki said he loves our new house

Waiting to become a parent is like waiting to jump into double Dutch having never jumped rope before.

I can't even believe how cute it is to watch Benny and Ryan play hide and seek. Ryan throws a toy and by time Benny gets back ryan is hiding. Then Benny runs around back and forth looking up and behind and around things until he finds him.
Tonight though Benny has been cheating and not running all the way to fetch his toy so he sees where Ryan is going. So I've started to hold on to him till Ryan has found a hiding spot. He squirms to try to get free.
When he finds him he barks.
