I really AM a bad blogger :( I apologize for not updating my blog very often, but I've just had so many things on my mind these past few weeks with the house-hunting & stuff. We thought we found the perfect house.....all 3 of us fell in love with it! It was on the lake, had windows galore, the basement was a finished walk-out.....just everything we've been looking for. Turns out, the couple changed their minds about renting it because they really want to sell it instead :( But what really stinks about it is that the guy contacted US about the house! We posted an ad looking for a house to rent & he replied to our ad. Why do people do that??? :(
Oh well.....what can you do? There's also 2 more houses that may work out. One is in the country, which I'm not too sure I'll like, especially since it's on a well. Water is a very important thing to me since I drink a LOT of water everyday. The other one seems almost too perfect.....it's in the newer subdivision right behind ours which would be awesome & it's gorgeous! All stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, 4 bedrooms, a 3-season room on the back.....just truly beautiful! But the price is a little bit higher than we wanted to spend. We could afford it, but it might be a little tight. They're going to give us a decision by the end of this week or so, so now we just have to wait.
I did the layout above a couple of weeks ago, but kept forgetting to post it. That's my granddaughter at her birthday party. Not sure if you can tell, but I used stickles on the word Pony & also along the the swirls that I cut out from the paper, which is Basic Grey's newest Euphoria line. It's all straight IRL.....sorry if it doesn't look that way.
Now I thought I'd answer some questions that you all asked in my last post (thanks for all the comments, btw :) ):
I also have the same camera you do, does yours work?
The guy told me that it didn't work, but I guess I could try it, once I figure it out, that is, lol.
The robbery happened real close to my office! Scary huh?
Yes, it truly was scary! Someone was definitely watching over me that day! I'm still sad that they killed the guy, but I read later that he had a gun :(
Don't ya just love junk shopping?
Yeah, now I do! ;)
Do you have any other great thrifting spots you go to around the area??
I haven't found any yet, but I'd love to!
Everytime I get something new for my room I always tell my hubby but Benita has it honey.
Awww.....thank-you hpoormon :) (btw, what's your name?)
I was also tagged by Darcey a while back:
Ten Years Ago: I was 35 years old, Jim was 33, my kids were 12 & 8 (omgosh, when did they grow up???), we had been living in Michigan for just about a year, Jim had just started his new job, I drove a 1996 Chevy Monte Carlo, which was later totalled by a drunk-driver that read-ended Jim.
Five things on today's to-do list: Well, since today is almost over, I'll list 5 things I did instead. 1. Go to the gym - check! 2. Wash dishes - check! 3. Do laundry - check! 4. Take a shower - check! 5. Take another shower after going to the gym - still to do :)
Snack I Enjoy: Since I'm working on losing weight, I don't snack nearly as much as I used to, but one thing I enjoy is the WW ice cream.....they're only 2 points & settle my craving for ice cream when I have it :)
Things I would do if I was a millionaire: Buy a house with handicap access so that I could bring my Mom to live with us & get her out of that nursing home! Buy a 2009 Dodge Challenger :) Donate to several charities.
Places I have lived: Michigan (was born here), Pennsylvania, Virginia & Michigan again.
4 People I am tagging:
Toni (when she gets back from Hawaii, that is)
Well, I just got home from the gym a little while ago & the shower is calling my name :) Hope you're all having a wonderful week!
