Well, in light of the current housing market we've all but opted for plan B. Which is take out a home equity loan to cover our move and rent out the house till it sells. It seems that like everyone else we have to find a way to wait out this slump. In the mean time we're still waiting for Mike's passport (he applied over 14 weeks ago), then we can apply for the visas.... It's all fairly tedious.
I'm trying to get as much work done on my graphic novel as I can this week as I'll be quite busy next week, teaching my summer writing workshop at the library and reading Harry Potter (the final book will be here soon!). I signed up all three kids to go to a Harry Potter party on Friday night... It sounds like it should be fun they're running tons of activities, and the kids are getting dressed up.
Oh boy, I seem to be yawning uncontrollably. Chloe's in a fiction writing class that starts at 8am, so I've been getting up at 6:45am... I'm just not a morning person. It's my own fault, as usual I've scheduled my kids through the whole summer with various camps and activities. It's a compulsion I have to keep them busy (it also keeps them from the TV and from fighting with each other). Oh well, till next time.

Here is a picture of our house. We just lowered the price...again. I'm so tired of owning a house, I can't wait to just be a renter with a lease again. It's really a nice home, four bedrooms and two bathrooms on 3 acres of land with a mountain view.
On the plus side I've been getting a lot of work done on my book lately. I'm almost done penciling the pages for chapter 5 of my graphic novel, "The Horribles" ( a middle-grade gothic children's book). We've also been spending a lot of time at Zoom Flume water park (we got the season pass). It's really been fun, though I could see being quite sick of the place by August!
Anyway, it's the fourth of July and even though it's pouring rain, my children desperately need to see some fireworks. Should be fun...
"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
