Well, I have been MIA for awhile, but there isn’t a heck of a lot going on and/or I haven’t felt like typing or had time.  In either case:  I AM HERE NOW!

Anyhow, we pretty much decided to hold off on the whole house thing.  Loads of reasons.  Two houses we were interested in pulled from the Market, a really bad sellers market, fear of ours not selling when we buy one, I could go on but I won’t.

So, instead we will save for it more and look next year and in the meantime, spend some of what we are saving on what?   DISNEY!!!!  

So, We were thinking we would go over Thanksgiving weekend and the week after.  Longer trip and less vacation time we have to use.  So I stopped my AAA today (the three A’s as my MIL calls it LOL) and got the pricing on a 10 day and then the pricing on arriving that Saturday and skipping the two Holiday days.  Yea. Huge savings skipping those two days.  And I was told Huge Crowds too.  So, then I went to work, printed a calendar and on when I took a break (wink, wink) I was trying some other dates.  So, I tried a few different options, etc etc.

Then I got to thinking.  Wow.  Nothing but long weekends all the way until DECEMBER??  UGH!  I can’t even imagine.  So I called my great friend, C, who is going on October, and by the way took Princess today with her kids and WORE HER HINEY O-U-T (thanks C!!!) to see what her dates are.  So, I get online, go to Disney and look up the second week of October.  Which BTW would put me IN DISNEY WORLD ON MY 40th BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!  And the cost is only $120 more than the week we were going.  Plus, C invited us to her rental house at the shore in July.  So, I will use 2 of my days in July and the other 6 in October and be happy and not to stressed waiting!!  YIPPEE!!  I think that I found the date!  Though it will be a couple days less, but we will have a couple days with company for the little one so that will make her so happy!

So, now I just have to take the down payment money over next week (insurance included!!) and be happy!  Oh, and change my tickers LOL!

I am thinking of trying to keep it a surprise from Princess.  I am not sure how we can drive 18 hours without telling her.  Maybe tell her the morning we get in the car?  I will figure it out!

I am super excited now that its less time!  YAY!

Oh heck…now I REALLY have to start exercising!

I am sick.

The end.

So the showing we wanted for Sunday was declined!  What?!  Then, our awesome realtor, Cherrie, emailed and told me that they now have it listed as no showings until the 14th!  So we are going then.  What a pain!

So, I was notified that the house we were looking at has had 9 showings in the week it has been listed and 3 offers are coming this weekend.  I knew this was going to happen.  It is in a *very* high demand area and it was a great price.  Meanwhile, this morning my Realtor sent me a new listing.  A house in the town we live in now went up.  It sits smack in front of a trailer park!  However, it has 2 full baths, a large 2 car detached garage (not a drive into the basement garage), family room, livingroom, kitchen, dining room, finished basement, 4 bedrooms and another very small room (craft room!!!).  And its 2k less then the other one. Mind you the taxes are 1k more, but whatever, we are used to being in one of the higher tax areas.  So, I just told her tonight to go ahead and drop the continued showings for us on the first house and we are going to pursue this second one.  We have the showing on Sunday.

The next step is developing my cleaning team!  I need anyone and everyone who loves me just a little to come help me in intervals until we are done!  I need to pack some things away to move them out of the house, get rid of the junk, dust and clean!  Make all the rooms look as big as we can, and generally clean clean clean!  Then keeping it that way without beating my family will be the second big step!  ha!

Can we have some collective prayers please!!  There is a really good chance that by early next week we will put a bid in on a house!!  Everything, and I mean, everything must fall nicely into place for everything to work out great.  I have 2 huge fears.  #1 is this house selling.  Its a great house, cute, well kept, solid, good area, but its small and more of a starter, plus its a townhouse!  Have to find just the right people looking.  #2 Someone to watch Princess during the summer who is willing to drive to us.  I have to start at 9am starting in the summer (yay no more evenings!!) and I do not know anyone in the town we are moving to, no teens, no retired adults and I really don’t want to have to drive her somewhere everyday!  I will have to pay a lot more out than I do now (since its just preschool now) pay a much higher mortgage, work more to pay for it all, and stress at what I am going to do!!  So— pray pray pray that everything falls into place!
