This last week's events can be summed up by Bobby's comment tonight, as we were rushing out the door for a date:

"Are you a news anchor on GNN, the Grouch News Network?" No harm done. He was absolutely right.

We're doing the house searching thing again and it has been brutal. Thus, the live-in grouch. Yes, that's me. And it doesn't help that I'm without my camera, our fifth child, which is being repaired miles and miles away. (No, it wasn't me this time.)

But next week brings promises of New York style cheesecake (for Bobby's birthday), sun-filled mornings (starting tomorrow), and more hopes for the perfect house to suddenly appear.

I guess I'd better get to bed to savor that extra hour of sleep...
