Ok, I already came back…twice. When the blogging fever hits, there is no stopping it. I just had to post the one about Jimmy Fallon cooking chili with Martha Stewart. Then, my Homeschooling Q&A post was a bit unusual for me. I don’t normally vent on my blog, but I thought it could serve to help some other frustrated homeschooling mom in bloggersville.
A brief update…our house is under contract and we have a contract on the house we want. For some reason, we could only find one house we liked out of hundreds to choose from in four different counties. The sellers of our “new” house are being rather unethical, but that is another story. In return, we are being extra nice to our buyer. We are thinking of leaving our gigantic TV if he wants it. Two reasons, one – it is too heavy to move. It was taken apart into three pieces just to move it here. Reason two – it uses a lot of energy. Husband wants an LCD TV in it’s place at the new home, but they use even more energy! Regardless, it is too big for our den in the other house. We are also leaving our buyer our refrigerator.
If all goes as planned, we will move the end of the month. Meanwhile, I am packing, homeschooling, getting rid of unwanted items, and using my fax machine a little more than usual. Funny how so much in the loan process can get accomplished through emails, telephone and faxes. I haven’t even set foot in our loan officer’s office. This is not the home buying experience from 10 years ago.
Here are some things I did during my so called break from blogging.
Watched son climb a tree.
Had another encounter with a squirrel.
Made a U.S. history display for son’s first day of school.
