So we are still looking for a house. Argh!!! The weather is getting me down, it’s been raining in upstate NY all week. Over Memorial Day weekend, we went to DC and saw my family and Donald and all the Martins. We went swimming with Vincie and then went to Philly with Donald.

Vince is still very tempermental. I’m hoping it’s the teeth. We went walking with Asuka, Carrie and Philip on the Tivoli Bays trail. We walked to Tivoli and ate at a restaurant and walked back on a real trail. Asuka pushed the SUS with Vince in it over a bunch of rough terrain. Yesterday, Jeremy took me on a date. We saw “A Mighty Wind” and had dinner.

Found two ticks today, one huge one on Ruby and one on Trudy on her chin. We went hiking on the Appalatian (sp?) trail with Carrie and Asuka and looked at Philip’s house which is very nice..

So this week we lost the house. We had agreed on a price of 256K, but the bank appraisal came in at 230K and Sean wouldn’t lower the price. We aren’t sure why the numbers came out so different. So we are at Bard for another few months at least. This month we are aready committed to a bunch of weekends out of town so I’m not sure when we’ll look. Maybe in June when Vince is in day care a few days a week. I joined the Bard gym yesterday so we are going to start going swimming… Last night we went to New Paltz to meet Carla and to introduce her to Carrie. We ate at a really nice seafood place, really casual and tasty. New Paltz just elected a 26 year old green party candidate as mayor and the place seemed really nice.

This weekend we went to Boston. Mainly saw MIT and the new facilities they had, the new swimming pool, the Strata Center and the new dorm. We went to Steer Roast for a few moments, but really it was too much to bear. On Sunday morning, we went to Harvard Square and milled around and saw Josh and Christine who had wonderful news.
