'bouncing' back in!
Hi everyone! I haven't posted in MONTHES! Life just got really busy! Some of you may remember last winter my MIL nearly died, then we spent the Spring caring for her, helping them move to Oregon and doing their estate sale. After that, we took over their house payments and in the meantime fixed up their house and then sold it. This took our entire summer (our kids now hate us and tell us we "stole" their summer!) It finally closed on August 26th. It was a great financial move for us, plus it helped my in-laws, so now in hindsight it was worth it. During the thick of it all though, it was very overwhelming.
But, of course, we are such hyper people we couldn't do the intelligent thing and slow down. Now we have purchased a distributorship for a Real Estate guide (you know the books you get free in grocery stores) and I am putting on an Antique Show. Both are ventures we have thought about for quite a while. DH's job seems to always be at risk for layoffs, so this is part of the reasoning. I haven't done ebay since May, but will eventually do it again. Probably just wait until winter.
So, you might ask, how does your house look with all these goings on. Oh it is gorgeous!! Everything is perfect. No dust, no clutter, not a single thing out of place . . . and Kansas has great Ocean property and Nixon is still President . . .
Well the fact is things are majorly out of control on the "home front", plus we are homeschooling all three boys this year to add to the chaos. So maybe I need to check in here and have you all help me to get back on the straight and narrow. I do have a beautiful home . . . it's just buried under a mountain of junk! LOL!
