Ten Facts

let's just catch up on life lately with some facts.....

1.  being a home owner never has a dull moment.
water main break two streets up last night.
having no water sucks!!
trying to explain to your three year old why you have no water is super hard.
trying to explain it to your almost two year old who does nothing but repeat "water" 57 times is fun!

2.  there will be ZERO painting going on this week.
i think everyone just needs a break.
how does YHL do it with a project going on at all times?
they make it look way to easy and WAY to fast....
i'm hiring someone when i buy my next house.  end of story!

3.  we are going on vacation next week!!
holiday world here we come.
and wait for it - we are going camping too.  ayi.  deep breath.
stella is STOKED.  i am excited to see how she really handles it.  fingers crossed!

4.  we would be lost without JH these past few weeks.
no joke - he has done SO much for us and not complained once.
anything we have asked of him he hasn't said no to, he has made it work and done it well.
thank you so much!!

5.  we have lived in this house 13 days with no coffee pot.
that's extremely dangerous.
i've probably spent enough money on mcdonald's coffee to buy a new coffee pot by now.  whoops!

6.  cereal is a really really good thing.  for people of all ages.

7.  i truly believe i am the most gullible person ever.
and i have cried about it a lot.
like on saturday i took time just to myself.  i painted and cried.  cried and painted.
ayi - someone is stressed.
refer to #3 - come on vacation!

8.  the sno cone place is open in town now.  we went last night.
and life was all good again.

9.  i haven't had my toe nails painted in weeks.
refer to comment #1, #2 and #5.

10.  all in all life is good.  everyone is healthy and we have a cute new house.
a cute new house with a ton of projects, but it's ours.  and it feels like home.
and everyone is happy in it.
all stress aside.

Once things calm down it will be easier. You should be proud of yourself to have accomplished what you have. It takes a strong person to do that. Keep your head up and know that this to will pass.

A good friend is like a nice glass of wine on a perfect summer night! Your JH sounds like that nice glass of wine ;-)

No water is the worst thing ever!! No water = no flushing the toilet and we all know what that leads too... bahahahaha

PTL for snow cones!! That's all I have to say about that :)

A break from house projects and painting is definitely needed every now and then. You'll be living there a while. It all doesn't need to be done right away. Very sweet of Jon for helping as much as he has! Can't wait to see all the hard work you guys have put into it.

P.s. my toe nails are in the same shape as yours. Hahah we both have new housing stress that has out weighed things like fully painted toe nails!

WOOO for vacay..good luck with that camping thing. I am doing that in july and D just informed me he doesn't 'believe in tents or air mattresses'
