You know I love you, Internet, but the Fireplace Decision is already Decided. Unless the contractor triples his estimate when he goes in and punches a hole in the box to see what's inside, we are getting rid of it. Because no matter the handful of people who cock their heads at it and say, "I think it's... INTERESTING," WE, Team Cheung, think it's a bunch of wasted space.
MMMM, MINTY FRESH!
What do you DO with that space?
Anyway. Obviously we made an offer on the house knowing that it CAME with the fireplace, but once the inspector told us that the box wasn't structural and the contractor's initial estimate was within the realm of possibility, we wanted it out.
Today hasn't been terrible. Which is an improvement! Maybe half as much yelling? And a dinner picnic on the floor of the playroom with a new Tom and Jerry in the DVD player? Not bad, Me!
Also, I bought this for Molly at Target:
I initially passed on this because it was sleeveless and we won't have sleeveless weather until August (MAYBE) but then it turns out that ALL the dresses are sleeveless. And this one was at least in a non-offensive Eastery color (what is with all the orange and coral and olive green?) and wasn't OVERTLY plasticky or shiny looking OR too grown up looking and my sister said it was cute. So it's the dress For Now. Sorry the picture is terrible. I bought a little white shrug to go over it and my mother bought her an Easter bonnet. Win.
In other news we are going to a Pre-K open house at the Potential New Parish School. I'm not interested in Pre-K, mainly because I'm happy with our preschool and the Pre-K and Molly's schedules wouldn't mesh well, and with a new baby I am just not up for that, yet, I think, WHO KNOWS. But when I called about scheduling a tour they told me to go to that, and then someone would show me around the rest of the school. SO WE SHALL SEE, EH? I feel nervous. Which is stupid. Whatever.
