Sam is fast asleep right behind his nursery door and hugging a Mickey Mouse football that his Uncle Donnie and cousins Maxx and Julia gave him. We can’t get in to the room to put him in his cot without sweeping the door into him and making him cry.
I’m an idiot.
There’s someone smart in this house, and it’s not me. A while ago Bill accidentally sat on the tray that fits onto Sam’s highchair and broke it. Since then mealtimes have been a trial as Sam would pull the tray free of the chair and throw the whole thing to the floor, his meal included. Infuriating. I was about ready to throw the tray at Sam when Bill came home, cleared off the dining room table which was overflowing with packing and pulled the highchair up snug. Problem solved. Genius!
We’re still in limbo. As you should know we lost the Tampa house and deposit and have taken Braeburn Circle off the market while we wait out the moratorium. Well, tonight it was the planning commissioner’s meeting and our issue was on the agenda so Team Allen showed up in force and Bill got up and spoke his piece at the appropriate moment. It really looks as though the commissioners will go ahead and force non confirming contiguous lots to merge. However, they did say that the focus of the moratorium was not situations like ours, which gives us small hope that variances may be written into the ordinance taking existing neighbourhood conditions into consideration. *fingers crossed*
Item no. 10 on the agenda was also of interest to us residents of Braeburn circle as the lot up the road was appealing to be allowed a Special Land Use Permit to allow use as a church. There was a large neighbourhood showing in opposition to this but the commissioners took a vote and the motion was granted.
