UNDER CONTRACT!!!


We will be moving hopfully very soon. We have had an offer on a short sale for three months and finally got tired of waiting and gave up. I found this house and saw it on friday, had Tempestt and her Mom see it later that same friday night, then by the next monday we submitted an offer and after a few hours and a few counters we had it under contract! Amazing how quick things can work when banks are motivated. I will post more pictures once we close next week. This picture is from our appraisal

Garden



I have finally gotten around to planting a garden. It has not been a matter of laziness, I just keep delaying it till we close and move to our new house. Well, we don’t know when we will eventually close, so I went ahead a planted a small garden, my hope is that I will be able to move it onto my little trailer and move it with us when we go. We have 4 different types of tomatoes, including cherry tomatoes, squash, cucumber, zucchini, and a watermelon, I am excited to see how it goes.

Cherries!



Our cheery tree has finally gotten cherries, it only lasted a few days, the birds quickly ate them up. It finally gave fruit now that we are getting ready to move.

Whats in the Laundry


This is what happens when I leave laundry out and don't fold it right away.

Update

The update… Work is going well for me; Tempestt is in Italy and having a blast! And we have a house under contract. We were supposed to close a week ago, but due to short sale complication we still have not. After being in Rome for a few weeks Tempestt is now in Florence and loving it. Not that Rome was bad, but Italy has more fun markets and better food. You can look at some of her pictures at morethanmaterial.blogspot.com. I will post some pictures of our house when and if we ever close.

New Dog

Wow it has been way too long since I have posted anything, though I feel you have not missed too much. Only two events really. One is that I am working at New York Life Insurance and I like it a lot. The other is that we have a new Dog. His name is Ralphie and he is a boxer. I went to the vet to get something checked out on our turtle and casually asked what kind of dog would be good as a companion for a Chihuahua. I asked about a boxer and the vets eyes got big and she hurried away to bring and introduce me to Ralphie one of their rescued dogs. We have had him since just before Christmas and despite a lazy eye and longer than average boxer tail we love him. He is absolutely goofy and does the funniest things. He loves to watch the traffic go by and rest his head on anything, the chair, your shoulder as you drive, tempest head, etc… My favorite picture has to be the one with him curled up in Taters bed. I am also attaching a video of the dogs playing together, Tater is working so hard and Ralphie is just standing there.
