We lost the house.

McGyver just called. Seems the owner has pulled the house off the market. She doesn't have any job prospects where she's headed so now she doesn't know when she's leaving. Crap. CRAPCRAPCRAP.

I REALLY liked that house.

At the same time, this may be a blessing for us. The commute was going to be a pain for McGyver. So now we can look a little closer to post. Still. I REALLY liked the house, the area, the price...everything. And now we're back to square one. On top of that, the market is kind of empty right now and there won't be a decent selection of houses again until the first of April which means we won't be able to move into a place until possibly May 1. Which means another 6 to 7 WEEKS in this hotel. Joy. Pray for my sanity.

And to think, I was about to sit down an write a post about how well we had been doing with meals, given that the only cooking implements we have are a microwave, fridge (not really a cooking implement), 1 bowl to cook in, and a ladle. I've smuggled in a crock pot and we are getting our Unaccompanied Baggage shipment which has our toaster oven in it late this week so we're able to do more than just microwavable meals. Guess we'll be doing more of that.

I'm off to search for a new house. Crap.
