Whole wheat flour. Mr. CB just found some at HMart today but for the last month or two we didn’t see any anywhere (I did forget to look a couple times though).

I think we have to do that also, but I'm not sure we can get away with not waterproofing the house. Our house is on a hill so I think the front gets a LOT of water that even if we redirect from the roof and do a bit of regrading, there's still so much water going from the front lawn down through the ground.

The pipe wasn't leaking then and I guess it looked fine? All of the pipes inside the house are fine (knock on wood) and the pipes from the house to the street weren't part of the inspection.

It is true. And in a drier climate this probably wouldn't be an issue. It rains sooooo much in the summers here.

I'm not sure. We will definitely look into it though. We had our contractor come over today and basically there's water seeping through the foundation like everywhere along the front of the house, so we're also going to have to excavate and install waterproofing there too. Mr. CB is trying to see the bright side that we can put in a front patio as part of this but I really like how the front of our house looks right now.

We got your smoke on the east coast today! It's pretty high up but it made the sun look really weird. Not as weird as out there obviously.

I took Munchkin and my Tasmanian Devil to the zoo! I think it went as well as it could have. A lot was still closed (including the Amazonia house, where the sloths are and that was like the one thing Munchkin wanted to see), but it was pretty cool and I've been rewarded with amazing naps for both kids.

Do other people buy houses and have expensive things not immediately go wrong? The water pipe coming into our house was leaking (inside) slightly. Just a little drip. Plumber came over and said he doesn't think we can do just that part because it's plastic/poly whatever and goes through the house's foundation, that basically we need to replace the whole stretch from the house to the street. Uggggggh. I really love our house but I hate being a homeowner.

The unwanted sequel to COVID or Allergies?

Munchkin must have absorbed some Monty Python in the womb because we were talking about animals and she said “a bunny might eat us!”
