The Hunt Is On!!

Well, after 3 weeks on the market we sold our home! Yes, we are really lucky in todays' market! This lady wants almost all my stuff too! She aint getting it. She put my beautiful pot rack in the contract. Man, I loved that pot rack too. She wants my bed in my guest room and whatever else I'd want to sell. Do you realize how long it too me to get Brett to buy me guest beds. No way am I going back to just a bed frame!!

Anyway, I leave tomorrow morning to go house shopping. I've been looking at homes online, and wow! There is just so much more that you can get for your money down south. I am so looking forward to putting Hayden in a game room and letting him free - no more toys all over my family room!! Now, I can't stop him from getting toilet paper all over his bathroom - doesn't matter how many times I tell him toilet paper is NOT a toy - does he listen? I guess not! Ok, how'd I get off subject?

Soooo, I am there for a week. I am hoping I can find something, so we don't have to put our stuff in storage. Brett doesn't get that I need my scrap stuff!! Well, not only for DT stuff, but I NEED it!! :)

Ok, so Brett gave his notice yesterday as well. He has been with this company for 22 years right out of college. He is going through so many emotions right now i.e. guilt, sadness, relief, happiness.... They are all over the place. I guess I'd feel the same, but hey, I've been a bum since 1995. I like my day job - lol Well, actually raising a wild 4 year old boy does have its demands. Well, we are just embarking on that next chapter in our lives. We will be closer to family and close friends. We really want that for Hayden. Family is what matters.

See ya when I get back!!
