Homeowners, please empathize

Homeowners, please empathize...

Ok, this is obviously our first home purchase. We have been so excited over the last (almost) 5 years of marriage to own our very own home. I literally have dreamt about it a number of times. The time finally arrived. We found a beautiful home, for (what we think, at least) is a great deal...so the countdown began.

We went through all the officialCheck Spelling things, paperwork, notary, wiring money...etc. etc. But who knew this would be SO STRESSFUL! We both (together) have never felt so stressed in our lives. Especially Ned, he is not a stressor (I do enough for the both of us) but even in this situation we both have been exhausted with this drawn out process, the red tape, the ever waiting on someone or something else, the excuses, the mistakes, the "one more thing"...

So for all those who are homeowners you probably know exactly what I am talking about, why didn't you warn us!!!!!!!!!!!!...ha ha ha...

But it seems official now, we are recording with the county tomorrow and will be NEW HOMEOWNERS. So now that we have lost some of the luster we had before the process, I think I am gonna make Ned carry me through the front door (WITH both the kids in my arms) to bring some of the new home luster back...

Christmas

Yes we do crazy things on the Todd side (my side of the family)...so Christmas theme this year was now we don our "gay" apparel...I think Ned officially won... and yes those are MY jeans (how sad for me!)



And yes, we even expose our children, to this cruelty...Asher looked like a Michael Jackson, Nutcracker...it was hilarious!
