Guess what happens in 16 hours?! (1:30pm Friday)
CLOSING on our house!!!!!!!!
In 16 hours, this is all going to be m-i-n-e.
(Well, er, the kids and van are already mine, but now I get the house too!)
And in addition to these two very adorable kids, this will also be mine!
I will officially be a slave to the bank. Yippie???!!
After we sign our life away we can finally be a slave to the man also to earn enough money to decorate this place.
We already ordered a black french-door freezer-on-the-bottom refrigerator but unforch it won’t be delivered until next week some time. Looks like pop-tarts for the kids until we can buy some milk.
The house doesn’t need much work at all, but that shallow sink and basic faucet are two of the first things to GO.
And of course the New Mexico orange paint (no offense to all you New Mexicans…) has gots-ta-go.
But oh, I just can hardly wait to have this all be mine (okay, okay, hubby’s too).
Nothing against my parents (love them to death!) but I’ve been “living” at their house for the past month and I’m not sure who’s more ready for the kids and me to leave – them or me!
Between their two Boston Terriers and my Yorkie, AND my 9 year old sister and my two kids, it’s been quite a LOUD CRAZY ride.
Their dogs taught my dog what vocal cords are. In return my dog taught them how to chase cars and poop in the house. Oy vei.
My mom is a great cook. But she’s an even better BAKER. Yup, she bakes. A lot. And when I’m here, I tend to start baking too. Let’s just say that in a month, all my shorts will hardly button anymore, I’ve got a tire tube hanging over the top of them, AND my shirts need to be “stretched” for them to not cling to aforementioned tire tube. Hmpft.
I’m scared to stand on a scale. Terrified. Once I’m in my own place, I’m going to have to hit the gym and get myself back to my regular routine.
‘Cause this tire tube bidness just ain’t gonna work for me.
So anyway, Friday is the day. Friday I sign my life away. Friday I’ll finally have a place to call
Wish us luck on our super exciting and even more busy weekend!
I probably wont post again until at least Monday, but please know in the midst of all the moving mayhem, I’ll be thinking about you.
