House Updates!

Well we had 3 showings this past week and on Friday we got an offer on the house! YAY!!!!!! Ok I am a little excited, ok more like Overly Excited but I can't help it. We went in on Friday and signed the papers for the offer, the earnest money has been put down so now it all depends on Mondays appraisal and then the house inspection (still waiting to find out when that is). If those goes well we are in the all clear and will close on it on the 29th of this month. Yep that is right just 8 days away we'll have sold our house and be done.

However during this time I think I about hyperventilated lol because we have no where to go! Hotels were soo expensive, and hard to find one to take a dog for a week. We did find a new apartment complex though in case we needed to do that. So Sat morning/afternoon was spent looking at about 7 or so houses and ugh. The ones that were in the school district in our price range needed sooo much work. To much for me considering all the time and money we put into this house. We finally got to the last house and it was a great feeling. It's a newer house (6 to 10 yrs but I think closer to 6) nice colors, no big updates to be done and about 500 sq ft bigger than what we have now. Downfall its not 4 bedrooms but we couldn't find any that were in good shape so we'll deal.
Here are some pics of the house that we'll be getting if all goes well with the selling of ours.

I'll take more pictures when we go for the inspection hopefully later this week! So excited and can't wait!

Where has September gone?

I can't believe it's already mid September! Ack and I haven't been blogging lately (wow 10 days!), I am sorry about that. Life has been crazy busy here and we are STILL trying to sell our house. We recently lowered the price a bit to make up for our kitchen that is apparently I don't think so but whatever! Luckily we'll still make enough to pay off the bills, have a down payment and have some left over for a vacation or savings lol. I am thinking Vacation!

So let's catch up real quick, FIL and his wife were in town for Labor Day and thankfully it went pretty fast and I only had to endure a couple days. It's hard for me to be around him and so many reasons that it would take me all day to explain lol so we'll just leave it at that. So we are having dinner and he is like so you guys are coming down for Christmas right? I was kinda dumbstruck and just looked at hubby. So it turns out they wanted us to come down for Christmas (which we will not do since there are to many presents to coordinate and our car is small and PLUS its nice to be home!) and then they want to take us all to Disney. Ok that part is great really the girls would LOVE it and they are footing the bill for the tickets and hotel. We still have provide our way down there and food/gas/souvenirs. Which all in all isn't a bad deal (since they live down in FL) but right now every bit of money we had is tied up in this house.

We have told them we need to sell before it can happen, not to buy any tickets etc until we know for sure that we can fork over the money. I guess they seem to think that food for 4 and gas will be el cheapo? Ugh and it has gone up since Ike came thru, we are holding steady at about $4 a gallon right now. Sigh... we shall see and though I don't care about seeing them I would love to take the girls to Disney, hubby and I have been talking about it for a yr now.

My mom, step dad and sis are flying in this upcoming weekend for 10 days since step dad is getting ready to deploy back to Iraq for at least a year if not more. They'll be here for about 3 days, haven't really told the girls yet just in case. It'll be good to see them, though we did just see them in June for our Hawaii trip.

School is going well for Jess and she is excited about her SPACE class (ie. gifted class) every Friday. Brownies has started back as well so we are getting into the swing of things and she still wants to do something else, such as dance, singing etc. Hailey is enjoying her mommy time again and having fun at play dates (ok mommy too lol). She is still doing pretty good on potty training, not great but we'll get there.

Hubby is still working on when he wants to go back to school for his Masters. He has to take a test prior and is about to miss the cut off so I am not sure what is going to happen. I hope he figures out soon what he wants to do.

As for me, I am still plugging along with my home businesses and trying to decide if I want to find a part time job for a bit until the house sales and we get caught up on a few bills. I think I have about covered everything going on here so until next time!

That's what atleast 10 mins or so of my life sounded like! So the girls were in Hailey's room playing with one of those punch balls you blow up with the rubber band attached. They have played with them forever and never had an issue

I hear them playing and the next thing I hear is CRASH and Shattering glass... they apparently hit the punch ball up to the ceiling and hit the light fixture and it came down. Hailey was screaming and holding her wrist and Jess was about crying and couldn't calm down. Finally after I got them to explain what happened I was able to get Hailey calmed down enough to see she had got hit on both of her wrist and has bandaids on both now due to scratches/bleeding and a welt on one of them.

I am just thankful that neither were standing directly under it and it hit their heads or in the eyes!

They are going to give me gray hair yet!!!
