I just have time for a quickie here! Its a wonderful spring afternoon here. Ideal temperatures. Clear blue skies. The kinda day just screaming for To-Do’ lists to get done.
And here I sit.
We finished up ‘Birthday Month’ here this week with Skylar’s b-day on Monday. It was really a low key affair since both girls have been celebrating for the last 4 weeks. The upcoming month of May brings another birthday month, for all the adults this time. Not to mention all the other things that could be going on in May.
To bring you up to speed, we have been approved to buy our new house. Everything is contingent on the sale of our house.
The status of that sale is still murky. The termite inspector came by this week. While he found no termites he did want us to replace some wood damaged from water….that may be conducive to termites.
Silly me. All this time I thought that was the responsibility of the termite company that we pay the termite bond to.
Cha-ching! And the old house cash register rings up again.
Our contractor did the work required for this Termite CL-100 report plus the work needed to satisfy the 23 page home inspection. (Cha-ching). Upon his completion of the work he gave me a letter stating the house is fit to live in.
We may just stay then!
That thought has crossed our minds.
Also, the bank preparing the loan for the buyer sent their inspector out for a home appraisal, to see if the house is valued for the amount of the load. This is the last stage of the process in selling our home.
At this point we are calling it the ‘home appeasal’ since we have had to appease so many different parties. We are holding our breath and putting off boxing until we get the ‘thumbs up’ from this report.
If, and when we get that, it
will could be smoother sailing until the sale at the end of the month. We put off grocery shopping this week in order to force us to ‘eat down’ the stash in our pantry, freezer and refrigerator. It may make for some curious meals this week!
Add to these checklists some questionable blood tests that require further investigation and the ending to a 3 year old probate from a death in the family in 2010, and the family agreements that need to take place with that, and the rest of the month looks full.
Going back to the quickie, that is why this week and the festivities earlier, were such a nice distraction. Thanks to all who helped make this and both birthdays so special for everyone!
Here’s a quick(ie) look at the beginning of the week. It can bring out the little girl in all of us, er….I mean you. If you listen closely you can hear me roll my lips in an attempt to show Skylar the proper way to apply lip gloss. And you can draw your own conclusions about that last statement…
Thanks for dropping by! I hope your weekend is fun-filled, action-packed, or relaxing, which ever you desire. I hope my friends are all hitting your goals and making the most of this special weekend!
