Are we having fun yet?
The weekends been ok, but I am TIRED! If Sir snores a lot doesn't shut up tonight, he's hitting the sofa! We spent yesterday at a friends house helping them landscape their backyard and today is a veg day. Lots of Lego Star wars and even a nap. LOL Our realtor is on the way over right now with a bid for us to sign so we can submit it......fingers crossed this goes smoothly b/c it's a short sale so everything is "pending bank approval". Then we need to sort through the to go menus b/c I am not cooking tonight. LOL
How has your weekend been Annie?
Kim, how exciting!
Annie, we need to help you plan ur weekend I think, not that I think you need help, it will just be fun! LOL.
Kim, any word from the realtor? Any "other" calls yet? I think it's going to a quick sale for sure on the second one!!!!!
Friday night I had promotion where I actually got my black belt at the ceremony. Instructor started tearing up when he was trying to tell people "my story". It was a bit emotional. DH said my mom was even tearing up. (and we are not "cry in public" people).
Then we went out for ice cream with my umm friends and their families (you know of whom I speak). More for the kids and cuz some other's where going than anything else, so we had ice cream for dinner. Then DH and I went to our local for an appy and a beer.
Saturday was his (mil) retirement party, we had SO much fun! Shall I start with the food or the people? His dad and BIL cooked up 3 turkeys and I don't know how much pork. They had two big cookers with the meat in them they did Friday night. His mom made a huge things of baked beans. Then we had people bring a dish, had tons of salads and deserts. About 75 people showed up altogether and it was so fun. It rained til about 7pm, but we had the a big ole tarp over the driveway and the garage so it was all good (rain wasn't blowing). Then we pulled out the beanbag boards and people played til it got dark, THEN they rigged up lights on the tarp and played in the driveway. I was the 4th to the last man standing, and DH was the last! His guard buddies asked where their room was before we did. hee hee. But it was really fun. Today we finished cleaning up and divying up the leftover deserts to share with the neighbors. FIL and MIL came to help us take down the tarps and finish cleaning up, stayed to help my try to work on the keg, but there's still beer left in it. (it was a heavier beer that some people didn't like but it was our party, but they give 100% of their profits back to community charities)
Well, I don't think it's gonna go quickly at all as far as the house goes. We're waiting for a call from our lawyer tomorrow after looking over the contract then it goes at the bottom of a stack of papers on someone's desk at the bank......when they get around to looking at it, we'll know if they accept our offer or not. Our realtor seems to think it will be at least a month before we hear anything. :0(
That was nice of you to go out so the kids could have a good time, what a good mom you are.
The party sounds like a blast! Wish we could have swung coming out for it. Enjoy those leftovers dude!
