Musical Chairs

I did it! I bought a townhouse. Yesterday I made my final selections and signed the purchase & sales agreement. I am so excited to see all my colors and choices installed. I also can't wait to move in and get settled.
Our house is ready for people to see. We actually have a showing this evening which I hope is a good sign since it just went on the market. It's too bad it took moving to get everything done and cleaned up because the house looks so nice.
I have a new home for my bees too. A friend at work is going to let me setup in her and her husband's apiary. Not only will I still have a nice location for them but I will also have an onsight experienced beekeeper for help. Maybe I'll finally get some honey.
Now I am back on the hunt for daycare for Keegan. I wish I could keep him at the same place but it wouldn't make sense to drive south 45 minutes so I can drive right back up north again to work. I have some referrals and have set up appointments to visit. Atleast this time I feel confident about what I am looking for. Poor kid is going to move daycares, split into two different houses and split into two separate parents all at once. Divorce sucks.
