Great News!!!

Okay so I know I haven't been on here lately, I blame the craziness that has been going on all around me! I almost have everything packed and ready to move. My apartment is full of boxes, it's depressing. We haven't been home a lot except to sleep (one of the reasons being that my apartment is so depressing!) Milo has play groups throughout the week and that gets us up super early! Then it's a lot of running around, cleaning the new place, packing and cleaning up the old place (finally shampooed the carpets! Almost in move out condition).
I have some super fantastic news!!! I got a house! It's amazing too this is the first and only one where I'm not nervous about buying. With all the other houses it just didn't feel right and this one defiantly does! It does need a new roof but I think we will wait until next year for that other than that it needs a super cleaning and paint. It's a 2 bedroom and 900 square feet so a good size, walk up attic and 1.5 bath (with the other bathroom being in the basement). The garage is AMAZING! It's insane and I believe I'm going to be doing a lot of upholstery in there. Everything is locked in so it's mine for sure!! And the neighborhood is soooo nice! We won't be closing until August 1st so that's a bummer but it will be worth it. Because of this awesome news I am having a sale in my shop! 35% off everything!! Not sure how long it will be on so if you've been eying something grab it now!

Still house hunting. Either I'm to cheap or the banks are dumb...I'm going with the banks are dumb.
Prices are still going down and there's more and more houses coming on and they think putting a house (that's super run down and possibly won't be able to qualify for a loan) up for $50,000 is a good price. I understand they need to make their money back but I don't see how these houses will ever sell for anything above $25,000 and that's pushing it. I'm sure if I keep going I'll get a great deal but I've been in far to many houses! It's actually pretty interesting and with each house I get more of an idea of what I want (it changes periodically).
On a different note, we finally have awesome weather! Pretty sure we'll be going out on a trolly ride today if we get enough done beforehand. The boxes in my place keep piling up!!! And we're getting rid of more and more. I'll probably be ready to move by mid month.
Milo had his first T-ball game yesterday! They did way better than I expected them to, the last practice everyone was kind of all over the place :/ So we'll be working on grounders today too!
Lady has a vet appointment tomorrow. She's been having trouble using her litter box so I'm pretty sure she has a urinary track infection and hopefully that's it and she's just not being territorial (don't think that's it because she pees in random spots, her new one is the bathroom sink UGH!). We're also finally getting her spayed but that's on the 30th of this month, same day I have to be out of my apartment....lets just say this month is going to be insane.

Back Again???

I'm a jumble of emotions right now! This morning I was very excited and motivated...not so much anymore. Either way I had some great ideas this morning that I would love to get back to once I'm feeling a bit more up to it. Here's a few things I've been thinking of.
I need to keep a positive attitude on things! I'm good at putting up a front but when I get on here it seems like I'm bummed or complaining over half the time. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE!! I'd rather tell you guys about the fun stuff and concentrate on that.

I need to do a makeover on my shop and update a lot of things (I'm sure my blog could also use a makeover but we'll work on the shop first).

I need to take more pictures!!! I recently replaced my point and shoot because it broke quite awhile ago. Pretty sure I've only used the new camera once or twice and I've had it a couple months. I def need to get more pictures of Milo and myself!

I think I'm putting a lot of grief on the whole house situation and it's very draining and frustrating and it's really getting to me lately. That and the fact that we have less than a month before we have to move now! I already started packing sometime ago and I'm continuing to do so little by little. I'm also trying to clear out old projects (or projects never even started!) it's going pretty good but then I'll see something new and want to do it but don't worry I'm keeping some self restraint! I'm going to try and keep things updated on here (again! Ugh maybe I need a calendar to remind me??). So check back soon! Possibly doing Friday Favorites in the very near future :D
