The kids were a bit antsy again today. At one point, La Serpiente trod on (and broke) Destroyer’s remote control car, that she’d only had since Christmas. In a surprising display of maturity, Destroyer was less concerned that her toy was broken beyond repair, and more at how upset La Serpiente had become, bawling with shame at what she’d done. So I guess that’s a good thing.
Meanwhile we had a call with our general contractor about the enormous estimate to renovate the house. Part way through we discovered that he’d been quoting prices including a markup, rather than before markup. So that made a big difference to the price. But still we’re not sure if we can afford it or not…

And then it rained all day, worlds without end…

So this has been a quiet day. Tomorrow the power is out, so I need to find some other ways to entertain the girls. That may mean a few more stories about pigs…
