somebody wake me

I feel like I have been on this nightmare vacation that drags on and on and on. Well nightmare may be exaggerating but it the way I feel for now. I am tired of going on "vacation" (ie family reunions, family weddings) Oh wait I get to go again tomorrow. I am soo tired of living out of a suitcase and not having stuff. I HATE not knowing where things are and using someone else's computer. My car exploded today. So far it looks like antifreeze. I had gone to print up pictures for an assignment (I had to use ones off my blog because I don't have access to my pictures currently...ugh). I was backing out and a huge explosion. I saw stuff blow out from under the hood. I quickly pulled back into the parking space. A nice fellow heard the explosion and came over to assist me. He was so patient (I couldn't even find the stupid lever to unlatch the hood.)He had me turn off the car and I told him I would call AAA. He kept checking things out and showed me a couple of things to point out to the mechanic. Then here comes my Aunt. It wasn't planned but definetly a blessing. She drove me to her house and then we sent the boys to go take care of the car. Justin called AAA and had them tow the car to a dealership, $60 later we find out that there was a dealership just down the street and it would have been free to tow. Oh well what do you do? Only a few more weeks until I get to start unpacking. I am not excited about that but it will be nice to have my own stuff again. Wish me luck or wake me up and tell me it is all a dream.

Thing 1, Thing 2, and

Thing 3. I had to post a pic of the kids in their shirts that we brought back from Florida. Thanks Paige! (I stole the pic off of her blog). It was well worth the $$$ spent for the shirts. I LOVE THEM. Mainly because that is what we call our kids. (Well M gets more of the "Super Thang, Chocolate Thunder or Ben") I have already had to wash them several times because it is all they want to wear! Super score on the souvenirs! Wahoo!

Boy advice for M

Shalece, Justin's cousin had a friend over tonight. She wanted to make that we would be passing through the room so that he wouldn't put the moves on her. (She is in college and getting ready to go to India for a jealous.) Anyway this friend was a previous boyfriend and she just wants to be friends. When he left he gave Shalece a hefty envelope with a letter. After reading it she told M, "don't ever like boys!" M, "I like my brother though." Shalece, "oh you can like your brother, he is cool." M, "yeah he does tricks!!"

house update

Hey I have a million things to get done today so I have to be brief. We got back from Florida yesterday. The sellers accepted our offer and tomorrow we will meet with them to negotiate the details. So we are under contract. I don't know if I should be excited or nervous (your body has the same reaction so I can't tell what I am). While on vacation I watched tons of HGTV and feeling more like I will make the wrong choice in landscape, paint or decorating...LOL.

Sunny Florida

Ahhhh! Nothing like a little vacation away from all our cares. Justin and I are in Orlando currently. He has a conference and I tagged long (without kids!!!). This is our first time away without anyone in tow. We have spent that past two days in Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Our favorite rides: The Mummy and MIB. The coasters were pretty intense but glad we rode them once. I have blisters on my pinky toes from all the walking. We have decided that we really aren't theme park people but it has been fun. I especially enjoy being able to go out to dinner. We even caught a late movie last night. They have dance clubs on the City Walk so we will most likely end up at one of them tonight. Justin started his conference today so I decided I needed to do a little catch up and hopefully get out to the pool to soak up some rays.
So as much as we didn't want to buy a house from across the country. WE ARE!! The seller decided to accept our offer. Now I don't want to hold my breath but at least we are getting a little closer to getting settled. Here is a picture of the house. This is from a few months ago, the timbers on the front are stained dark brown. And the garage is rocked. The front door is still not painted and the landscaper is waiting for us to get back to plan out our yard. After how stressful our move was for Justin and I we realized there is no way we would be able to survive a remodel and still have one of us alive at the end. So we found a new home in the same neighborhood we were looking in and fell in love. (Justin with the house and me the yard.) So we will see what happens. I am familiar with Real Estate and know there are many more hoops to jump through before it is a done deal.
