Just another drama

I always thought I was pretty good at handling stress, but I think after today I think otherwise. There is a difference between handling it and trying to hide it. Sam and I put an offer on a house last night just to find out that they messed up the listing price by $25,000. Hello!!! How is that possible??? We we pretty irritated, but what do you do, but move on. So they obviously did not accept the offer. So we are about to make a new one. But then we realized that the acreage was wrong also. Who is this agent??? Does he know anything about what he is doing???

Sorry about the negative tone of this post, maybe the next one will be better. I just needed someone to listen who wouldn't talk back. Thanks for listening.

Coming to a close

I packed up some boxes today and am so happy to finally be moving. I will be excited to be close to work and live in a cute little neighborhood and just enjoy a bit of a change.

I put Kit Kat in her room today to take a nap and she locked herself in there. What a mess. I tried for 20 minutes to get the lock undone, but I just couldn't do it. So I called a friend I thought would have the tool to open it, but she didn't have it. She did however give me a name to another friend who might be able to unlock it with a nut pick, so I called her. She wasn't home, but I called her at another friends house. She told me to just leave her in there and eventually she would unlock the door on her own. I really didn't want to do this because Kit had a stinky diaper and I could smell it out where I was. But by the time I was off the phone Kit had opened the door and all was well. So thanks to all who helped today.

Blender Baby

I had better be careful. I hope someday I don't find Tiny in the blender. Kit Kat is a bit crazy.

Old Friends

Two weeks ago I got to go to Cinncinatti and see some friends. Some I haven't seen for over a year. We had a baby shower for someone. Can you guess from the photo who it is for? Everyone had a baby there, it was kind of crazy. The shower was for Esther, who adopted a beautiful baby girl. We all had such a great time. We ate, we chatted, we laughed, and we ate some more. After the party Liz, Juli, and I went to the Gap/Old Navy store. They have all there pants for 7 dollars and shirts for 4. I really like the adult section, the kids I think is a bit over priced. I got a pair of pants and 3 shirts for 20 bucks. Love it.

These are my peas!! I love them, they are taller than I am. I have never had peas grow this tall. I also have never planted them in March. I usually forget and they never get out there until the end of May or into June. They are so yummy. I have about 6 tomatoes with the promise of lots more and my cucumber has tons of blossoms on it. I hope I at least get one off of it before I move, but I don't see that happening.

We have looked at some houses and found some we really like, but they always accept offers right before we see them or right after. It is a very stressful process and I just need everything to fall into place. I think I should start packing though, we only have three weeks left until we have to be out.

Kit had a Birthday

She didn't like blowing out her candles, so Sinclaire helped her.

With her cousin Lucy and her uncle Jake.

Still not wanting to blow out her candles.

A friend offered to make Kit Kat's cake for her birthday, and I just couldn't say no to that. I went to her house to help her, I mostly just watched. It turned out great.

We went to grandma and grandpa's to play with the cousins and had a great time. It is too bad they don't live closer to us so we could play all year long.

We get to move!

I know we have been saying that we are moving for about a year now, and we are still here. But we accepted an offer on our house last Friday and if all goes well we will be moving. We put our house for sale on May 20 so it only took about 2.5 weeks. They showed our house on Wednesday and came for a second look on Thursday. They made an offer that night and we signed the offer on Friday. So the inspection is tomorrow and we are praying all goes well. Closing is set for July 10. I can hardly believe it is happening. I have been thinking about it for so long. We are looking at a list of houses tomorrow so wish us luck.

Mother's Day

I know this is a bit late, but I wanted to add it anyway. Sam was going to make me an edible bouquet for mother's day, and I was going to make my mother-in-law one, so we both made it. It took about an hour to make, and we had a great time. The chocolate covered strawberries were the best. We had a great time eating it and the girls loved the flowers.

The Breakup

So Sam and I had found a realtor in Indy to help us with the home buying process. Well, after working with her for a few Saturdays and just not being impressed we have decided we really don't want to use her. So the question is:

"How do you break up with your realtor?"

One, two, and three

Aren't they just so cute. We are having such a great time. So far three has been great. I am convinced it is only because Tiny is such a good baby. I love that he only likes to eat usually every four hours. And he still sleeps almost all the time. It is wonderful. The girls just love him and always want to give him smooches and be in him face. Kit made up a new word. Every time Tiny makes a noise she says, "Tiny crinin." She just combined crying and whining. I think it is so funny.
