I'm just me: wife to Mike for 9 years, mom to three great kids I can hug and kiss every day and one babe I can't wait to hold in my arms again one day soon. I'm always looking to improve my faith life and be a better wife and mother.

the very bad, no good, awful sort of day

I'm done. I'm so done I can't fathom a fork being stuck in me.

All kinds of stress and worry about the damn house closing. Or not closing. Or whatever.

All sorts of stress about the rental house deposit money. Our yard really scares me. Aeration and new grass seed* should help, but will it be enough?

I don't even want to get into the work crap except to say that one of our little boys fell out of a second story window at his house and he's in the ICU. Please, please pray for that boy and his family.

My car. That's the *, right above. I ended up taking a "mental health day" for part of the day at work today...I'm just spend emotionally and can't take much more of anything. I'm driving home from picking up some lunch, thinking I'll stop and get the grass seed on the way home. I hear a strange noise and there are no other cars around so it must be mine. Sure temperature gauge is pretty close to the red zone, and I'm about 2 miles from home. Great. I made it home, thankfully.

Oh, and either my husband is dead or hates me...I have been trying to call him since 10 something this morning and can not get a hold of him. I even had the office send him a message on his diad to call me...and nothing. Great.

we have a(nother) date

I got a call from our Realtor yesterday morning...we're officially ready to close! Our part is 100% complete!!!!!!!!!!! Tuesday everything will go to Title...then to the selling bank. We *should* close on Thursday.

I'm trying to not get my hopes up just in case something else comes up at the last minute...but I am SO ready for this to be done and closed so we can start working on OUR HOME.

where were we?

Oh, that's right. Waiting.

And we're still waiting. Possibly next week...we'll see.

Tonight I'm trying to recover our dining room chairs. I think I'll paint the frame rather than stain it...but we'll see.

the waiting

This is SO hard for me! We are just waiting, waiting, waiting for closing to come. I don't have a clue what I should be doing (serious answer is probably "just wait"-but I'm terrible at that!) so I'm doing a LOT of online window shopping. I decided it's too hard to chose a paint color based on an online picture or printed off the internet picture so I went ahead and ordered Zachary's bedroom stuff and playroom wall border. One of the three items I ordered came in today. More waiting! I am still thinking about my bathroom stuff...can't chose between 2 or 3 different things. Ugh!!!

I told my sister yesterday I felt like poking the eyes out of my husband's head all over trying to chose paint colors! You'd think it would be pretty easy, right? We've been together nearly 11 years and married almost 9. We love the same colors, for the most part. But he wants darker colors on the walls than I do and I'm not sure who will win!

But hey, with the slow pace of the selling bank...we might not ever get a chance to paint before we have move out of this house!
