I'm so glad that the weekend has finally arrived! The week started out with a neighboring dental office enjoying a catered lunch that was meant for the office I work in--I'll end the story there and just say they felt it shouldn't be an issue, since "we" didn't pay for it...And the week ended with a visit to the Loudoun County Office of Land and Development to find out the zoning for Fred's property. (See the post, Paradise Lost) This then sent me traipsing the halls of the county court house (pictured) to see the plat information. The good news is, is that the zoning (AR-1) only allows 1 house to be built on each lot. So, the most we would see would be a total of 3 houses built. The property in back of us that we are interested in, according to the plat information is accessed via, our driveway. This is what we thought. But if we're able to purchase 2-3 acres, it would include the access that would be changed. We did hear from Fred's realtor yesterday and he wanted to know how much we were willing to pay for 2 or 3 acres, if Fred would do it. Our realtor told him we hadn't discussed that and did Fred just want to name a price? She told them she didn't want to divide the 10 acre price because it was unlikely the 2 or 3 acres would be a buildable lot so it would have less value. I guess this is why we have a realtor because the amount we were thinking was the price divided into the cost of the 10 acres and a little more...I wish I knew where all this was going to end up...
Today I do know where I'll end up. The vets office. Hamlet continues to be a concern. The tumor as you know is very large, and became sore from Hamlet scratching it. He continues to wear a tee-shirt, but is now sporting a shoe on his back left foot to keep from further aggravating it and a 'soft-lamp-shade' or e-collar to keep him from licking it--He looks like he's dressed for Halloween...I'm sure you understand why I'd rather not post a picture of him...But I'm going to ask about steroids today to see if that will help in reducing the size and providing some relief. I know that there are side effects to taking this step, but something has to be done.
I'm also worried about Wendy. I noticed on Tuesday she has somehow broken a lower tooth that looks like it may be becoming infected. It was actually her that had an appointment this morning to see the vet. But I had to change that because Hamlet needs to be seen a 'little' more than she does, and unfortunately they didn't have enough time to see both of them. She doesn't seem to be in any pain or discomfort, but I feel just awful having to make her wait.
Whatever your Saturday brings, I hope you're having an enjoyable day! I look forward to reading your blogs later this afternoon!
