So I’m sure as many people can relate, It has been a CraZy Busy week! Finishing up my Christmas baking for my mom’s Christmas Eve party and cleaning/preparing for our families that came over on Christmas day (9 people in the morning – my husbands family, and then 28 people in the afternoon – my extended family) was quite exhausting! I am totally burnt out on baking.
Then the day after Christmas we decided that we were skipping everything that involved leaving the house… Except: We got a phone call from the realtor we’re working with that they wanted to show our condo in a few hours. My house was a total disaster: we hadn’t even done dishes from the night before or gotten the bags of garbage out yet! So we cleaned the best we could – and informed them that there were two parties here the day before and they should excuse the mess.
Then Monday my mom came over and watched the kids while I got a well-deserved nap; and then we picked up my niece and went off to Build a Bear 🙂 Andrew made a really cute puppy with roller skates, and Isabella my niece made a cute kitty/ballerina!
Then TODAY – oy! I had full intentions of relaxing and catching up on everything today! I got a call at 10am saying that they wanted to show our home for a second time with the same guy at 1pm…. 1pm?!!?!! I had three hours to clean my house again and get out of there! Also 1pm is usually the start time of Andrews nap, but I guess he was just going to have to wait! Which really wasn’t too bad, It seemed worse than it really was. I packed up all *gasp* SIX loads of laundry and brought them to the laundry room down the hallway. I made lunch and brought that down for Andrew and Ethan and I to hang out in the laundry room while our clothes were washing! It worked really quite well actually!
Then tonight we met with our Realtor and found THE BEST house ever.. This house is a 4 bedroom, 1 3/4 bathroom house with twice the sq ft of our condo and a fenced in yard, plus its in our choice neighborhood, a few blocks from our church, and schools right down the street!We’re going to be putting an offer in on this house tomorrow, and hopefully the bank accepts it – CROSS YOUR FINGERS and say a prayer for us! I’m really excited about this one, so *crossing fingers* that it goes through!
Well, I should get off to bed, but Just letting everyone know that I am getting back to the groove here 🙂
