We decided to drive around and see what kinds of "For Rent" signs we could find so I can have some place to follow up with tomorrow. That turned into almost two hours of semi-fruitful wandering, in which the kids started to have a meltdown. They made it home pretty well, though, all things considered. We found a few places to call tomorrow. Ellerie was acting the baby from around dinner time out and I finally finished up with her and put her to bed at 7:15 or so. That's when Bennett started to have one of his meltdowns, where he gets so overtired he won't eat and he won't sleep. He just fights it with all his might...which, for 4.5 months, is quite a bit. Then Ellerie wakes up at 8:20 for who knows what reason, almost inconsolable, and she finally comes downstairs, just in time for Matt to come home from home teaching. Ellerie finally went down around 9 PM and Bennett just now fell asleep after a 20 minute interlude. Here's to hoping tonight doesn't turn into the newest version of The Exorcist....speaking of the devil, I hear crying again....geez....false alarm?
We have two weeks to find a place to live, pack up our stuff again, move and then get Matt settled in so he can start on August 17....and we still want to go to the beach with his family the week before...wow. Let the games begin.
