Here's the situation.
We close on selling our house on June 27th.
We're leasing the house back from the buyer for the month of July.
We close on buying our house on August 24th.
So, we're homeless for 3 weeks. Extended stay hotels are crazy pricey. Anyone ever been in this situation before?

This afternoon, Ella pointed to a picture of my long-deceased grandmother, who she never met, and said, "That's my grandma. She helped my brush my teeth and rinse." :o

I'm back from a very successful conference... my paper was well-received, I did some networking, and got excited about my dissertation again. I even got to see some of the weird Denver Airport artwork, which was an added bonus. Next stop: Detroit, for more of the same.
The next 4 conferences will be in San Antonio, Houston, Galveston, and Dallas, so at least the family can come with me. :D

Also, Ella named her two new goldfish Ariel and Flounder. Also Awesome.
