Now, i don't know how long it is going to last, and i don't know if you can see normal colors after spending an extended amount of time in there, but I have so much cute pink-ish stuff that i decorated my craft room in before i was booted out by a little boy, i am very excited to get to use it again! So, let's rejoice over the pink again!

If you are on facebook, you know that the thing I couldn’t tell you earlier is that Horton 2.0 is on the way! The release date is set for Nov. 4. Matt calls him/her Sweettart, and so do I sometimes, but I kind of like to think of him/her as Horton 2.0-like software in production. I don’t know why, but I think it is just funny!
So, for now, that is the end of the announcements.
We are still waiting to hear on the house. We have fixed a few things on our current house and have asked the owner of the new home to fix a few things, so we are still kind of in negotiations. Hopefully we can find an agreeable middle ground on each house…because I really don’t want to be homeless.
I have pictures, but they are on a nother computer, so I will send those along one of these days.
Looking forward to a relaxing weekend with the family. YIPPIE!

Soooo, Easter was fun. Still haven't gotten the pics, but we hunted eggs, etc and had a great time.
Then, we had a garage sale. We are garage sale fools. Since we have been married (3.5 yrs) this is our 3rd garage sale. First, we had to consolidate our two apartments into one house that we not close to the size of our apts put together, plus we had to add all of our wedding gifts. That was a success. Then, just as we got our 2 extra bedrooms just the way we wanted them (a craft room for me and den for Matt), we learned we were having a baby and maybe needed to make some room for him. That was also a success. This on was in order to make a little more room and de clutter. So, there wasn't just a whole lot left, but we had enough to make a go of it. We opened about 7:15 on Friday and basically sold out by noon! It was amazing! We still have a few boxes of 25 cents stuff that wasn't worth sitting out in the pollen for several more hours, so we threw it in the car and took it to goodwill.
Actually, now that I remember it, the garage sale was before easter, since it was on good friday, but whatever....
So, moving on. The other reason for the garage sale was to begin getting our house ready to sell. We love our house, but with a baby boy who is moving around and being active and having toys all over the place, we need a little space to grow. So as soon as the sale was done, we began packing up all the non-essentials and personal effects that would detract prospective buyers. The next week was consumed with packing up closets, putting away winter clothes, picking up toys we don't play with, etc.
Then we were ready. Maebeth put the house up online on Saturday and put an add in the paper for an open house on SUnday. No backing out now!! So one couple came by on Saturday, two came to the open house, and one came back later for a second look. They gave an initial offer, we came back with a more reasonable offer, and they countered with something we could handle. So, now it is Monday and we have to find a house!!
we took off early monday and looked at about 6 houses. We had seen one house that i liked and didn't really think i would find another one, but as we looked for real, we noticed a few odd things. Then, we went to a house down the street that was just a few thousand more...and WOW! Matt fell in love! It is a really nice, really big (for us) house that we thought might last for a while... good school district, close to everything, lots of "living space" .... just what we were looking for. Nothing else compared, so Monday night we placed an offer. Got a counter Tuesday and took it. Oh, and did I mention I got a stomach bug/food poisoning at our celebratory dinner on MOnday night and spent about 1 1/2 days in the bed and still feel the reprucussions. And now it is today.
So there, you go! That's where I've been! Where have you been?
