Well, all things considered, coulda been worse.
After my last posting, my granny found out that she was not, in fact closing on her house today (which seemed a bit fast to me anyway, being as how they’d only shown the house a week ago.) And it wasn’t for the amount she remembered the realtor telling her.
Granny was not a happy camper. Anyone who knows my granny also knows that anyone in the near vicinity was also not a happy camper. But it’ll be fine; the buyers are pre-approved and the real closing should happen within three weeks.
Then Maddie apparently decided to audition for the Blue Man Group, coloring about 2/3 of her body with a blue marker she found. Chris thinks she was preparing for a Pentium commercial. Fortunately, it was a washable marker, so after a bubble bath she was back to her usual hue. Mostly.
As for being sick, I crashed out with a fever and chills about 3:30 (this would be when the marker incident occurred) for about an hour and a half. Fever broke about sixish.
So now things are more or less back to normal. As normal goes around here.
Edited to add: We’ve now heard back from Chris’ mom. His dad is now out of surgery and doing well.
