Our permits were posted on the property today while we were at work. They can now officially begin work, although they probably won't be starting until next week. On the back of the sign is a mailbox for county papers that says "Please do not touch" but of course I had to open it up and look inside anyway. Well, there were county papers in there. Whodathunk?
Well the permits have come through and my contractor will be posting them on the property on Tuesday morning. They will do excavation and get the foundation in either next week or the week after. We're pretty excited to be moving forward finally after lots of paperwork and talking.
So we went to a Holiday party 2 weeks ago that had one of those "bring a gift and we'll play a game" things going on. This is that game where everyone picks a number and you sequentially pick a gift from the pile or steal someone else's gift. Neither of us is a big fan of the aforementioned game but we complied to keep it jolly. To make a long story short, Colleen stole away the bestest gift of them all - a Clapper. We took it home and dumped it in a corner. But when we set up our Christmas tree, we thought "Hey, let's hook up the Clapper." Well, we have been endlessly amused since.
