with no loving in our souls and no money in our coats, you can't say we're satisfied
Am feeling less panicky--the kids did get home this morning and we got quite a bit accomplished. Dumpster is coming in the morning, and we should have a truck on Thursday. Kitty ended up being inside after all, but she ran outside when I opened the door at 3 AM and I haven't seen her since. I think she's probably fine, though.
The new place is lovely--a high-cielinged living room, eat-in kitchen, three small but doable bedrooms, more counterspace.
