As of today, we officially have 59 days to find a new house, buy it and move!! Sound Fun? If you answered yes, please send me whatever you are smoking!! HA. I spent the day looking AGAIN, and at one point thought I had found it. You can only imagine the let down to see the sellers disclosure and find out it had "structural issues" and essentially will need to be torn down. No Thanks. I did marry a General Contractor, but that is out of our scope.
Jeff and I have spent the last two hours on the computer. We have now officially worked through all of the HUD's, VA's and bank owned properties in Desoto County. So much for a deal. We have now asked for the help of our realtor and are even looking at a few possibilities in surrounding counties. Pretty much everything is some sort of deal in this economy, but considering this house hasn't sold and the "deal" we are cutting with good ole Aunt J leaves us with all of our equity still tied up....we sort of feel like we are starting over. Starting over with hind sight is a hard thing to do. BUT, I can say this, it will all be over SOON and I can't wait. I have no idea where we are going but I couldn't be happier to be doing it.
It is hot as heck! and by the way, 8lbs in 5 weeks. HOW 'BOUT THEM TATERS? HA, sounds like a few too many taters for Kacy. Stress used to make me a size 2. I would get stressed and my family would get all concerned thinking I was anorexic or something. The only 2 in this size is the one in the 12!! (I'm closing in on that one.)
Stella STILL has a cough and she is almost finished with her medication. Ethel smells like ass and Izzy bit the neighbor tonight. I don't blame her. If I was a dog and could have gotten away with it, I would have bit her, too. (I know that seemed to come out of nowhere, but they are all laying on me right now.)
I'm heading to bed early tonight!! It's only 10 after 10. My family, including my husband, is addicted to cartoon shows and I just can't take them anymore. I just started yet another Nicholas Sparks story. This one is The Guardian. I read three others in three days last week. I read Nights in Rodanthe (which was MUCH better than the movie), A Bend in the Road (decent), and Three Weeks With My Brother (my least favorite but very insightful). Oh, and I read that stupid arthritis book. I go through spells of reading. I'll probably quit when we move and it will take me awhile to feel settled enough to sit down and read again. SO, I've got to hurry up and finish this one.
OK, the stuff I cleaned out of my closet is officially for sale. The closet is open. Sizes 2, 4, and 6....Let me know if you want to come shop. It's ALL got to go. I am not moving any of it.
A TRUE CLEARANCE SALE.
