OUCH!


Old pictures (from Feb) but appropriate. This house has really hurt us financially. I just figured out that it has cost us $2154 in gas bills alone to live here for the last 6 months. That is more than replacing every appliance in our new house. That is insane. I can't wait to be done with this house. I had such high hopes but good god that is just nuts. I will miss the birds a lot... the bills, not so much.

I called the gas company and asked them what the average bill was for the new house in the winter. He said that the average was $175 or there abouts... and the highest they have ever had was $211. That same month that their bill was $211, ours was $573!! I think we will be much happier there this next winter... what do you think? :)

P.S. Cyan was able to do her dance recital today and she did GREAT! She did better on stage than I have ever seen her in rehearsal. It was awesome! Thanks for all the well wishes about her toe. It is doing much better although won't look right for weeks yet. But she is handling it all well.

I am glad she did well. Are there photos to share of her recital?

I know what you mean about the high bills. Here in California, our electric bill each month is just over $200. I talked to a friend of mine (that was in the Air Force with me that I still stay in contact with) and she said that her last electric bill was $54. MUCH better, I think!! Everything cost more in California (and in your old house!!)

Good thing we're both leaving huh?! :)

Unfortunetly, no. They wouldn't let us have a camera in there... but I snuck one anyway, and all the picture turned out blurry. We were supposed to get pictures and videos of the dress rehersal, but Don took her and so didn't take the camera. So I have her pro pictures that I will get in a week or so. :)
