open house

yesterdays open house was a drag.  NO ONE came.  Did you see the weather though?  I wouldn't have went to one either.  Today makes 3 weeks on the market and we are finally in the real estate magazine!  Just remember patience is a virtue!

early bed time

So at 5:30 tonight I had pretty much had it and put the girls in their bed.  It's 6:30 and sissy is screaming at me but I am ignoring her.  They were up late late last night and are like crazy people.  I have finished scrubbing down the house and am trying to relax a little before I go crazy.  Doesn't the cheesecake look yummy?  It's for a reunion tomorrow.

i know

O.K. So everyone keeps reminding me its not the end of the world if our house doesn't sell.  I know I know.  Its just that until that's decided our life is on hold with being able to really live in our house.  I;m just ready for everything to be final one way or another.  It's not so easy cleaning everyday just in case the Realtor calls!

On a completely different note we have taken juice completely out of the house.  Sophia had some crazy fits at first but is doing much better with just water (and occasionally some dr. pepper).  I am ready to start potty training her but couldn't do it until she wasn't sipping on juice through out the WHOLE day!  I think in February we will start the 3 day method and hope it is as successful with sis as it was with Brooklyn.

Our new house

This is the house that we have picked to build whenever we sell our house.  Beautiful isn't it?  Now you know why we are trying so hard to sell our house.  Now we have been on the market for 14 days with nothing.  Not even a nibble from the open houses!  I am (of course) stressed out.  My left eye is twitching and my stomach aches when I think about what happens if we can't sell.  Nothing happens.  We stay here unpack our family pictures and feel trapped.  We have our hearts set on this new house it would be so sad if we weren't able to move up.  I'm even looking forward to the time we stay with the in laws for the in between time.  I am looking forward to more space and being 1.4 miles from the elementary school (galvez primary) and 1 mile from the middle (galvez middle).  I am looking forward to having space to have more then one friend over at a time and possibly a small lake behind us depending on which lot we pick. So everyone say a prayer we sell soon so we can move on to the next phase of our lives.  And dont worry my d.s. friends we are only going to be like 20 minutes away!

a word

I was talking to Jessie on the phone today about her word for the year.  She has decided her word is courage.  She wants to be less shy and do things she has or would not have attempted before.  I thought to myself Jessie is one of the most courageous people I know and she thinks she needs MORE!  She walks into a room and the heavens open and angles play trumpets and a light shines down on her!  Seriously, well at least that's what I see when Jessie walks into a room.  It got me thinking what was my word this year.  It didn't take me long to decide: CHANGE. 

I am already going through a major change.  Our house is for sell.  We want to move to the Galvez area.  Not to far away.  Now we like Denham Springs and we love the friends we have made but we have never really felt like this was going to be our forever home.  So our beautiful house is for sale and I am bugging my Realtor all the time.  Hopefully we can move into the next part of our lives.

I'll tell you more of the changes I have in mind a little here and a little there but for now does someone want to buy my bowflex?!

My Jazzybug

Today was Brooklyns first dance program.  She was so excited, I was so proud.  Her class is called the Jazzybugs.  They range in age of 3-5.  B is the oldest at 4 the rest will be 4 soon.  She loves it and i love taking her.  All of the little girls in her class are so sweet and the moms are super nice.  Her teacher ms. Terry is great with the girls!  Brooklyn loves to practice and always talks about her dance friends.  veryone has signed up for next semester so it should be just as much fun!  I am really looking forward to seeing her grow in her dance abilities the next few months.

Jasons Visit

Jason came down for an unexpected visit.  We didnt get to spend much time with him.  Maybe if he can come this summer with Morgan they can spend a few nights.  We had a good time anyways.  We ate some Canes with the family and then just kind of hung out.   Traffic was aweful on the way to the airport.  It seemed like we would never get there.  I got him there on time with a few minutes to spare.  I hope this summer we will have a little more time together.
