Where to start? My oldest was baptized recently. The whole experience was sort of surreal, as if I was watching it from somewhere else. Plus, how on earth did she get so old? She had a beautiful white dress, which made me realize that the next time I blinked, she would be getting married. What is the deal with time speeding up like this? I’m not sure I’m a fan.
Toddler-Man escaped sans underwear and ran across the street. Not across our nice little no-traffic, cul-de-sac street, but across the big busy street. Apparently he’s very confident in his ability to dodge cars while playing with his penis. DH found him, talking innocently with the cops and some nice people who had spare shorts in their car. I expect CPS to show up at any time.
After months of searching, and looking at over 100 houses, we FINALLY found a house we liked in AZ. Made an offer, counter, counter, counter, and we reached a compromise, which conveniently includes all their furniture, so we can move into a fully furnished house and leave our furniture here to show the house. Of course, it may show better unfurnished, who knows?
No offers here yet, so we are looking at 2 mortgages for a bit. (Thank heavens for that first month when you don’t have to pay the mortgage). Yes, we will be eating beans and franks, so any prayers towards a sale would be greatly appreciated.
We are happy with the new house, though, and it’s better than anything I thought I would find. Prices really dropped in the last month. Some of those houses we looked at were truly scary and very expensive. I was so scared we’d end up in a pile of crud we couldn’t afford. Instead we’re ending up in a very nice house that we can’t afford. It’s a little smaller, but very functional, and it’s on an acre. My husband is thrilled. THIS IS MY LAND. I swear it’s a testosterone thing. Go ask your husbands if they want to own more land. I guarantee they will say yes. Who knew?
Someone showed up to look at the house unannounced. The house was a wreck, I was in my jammies, and it wasn’t until after they looked at the house that I realized one of my kids had forgotten to flush after pooping in the toilet. I’m expecting an offer from them any day now.
