Hayley's Drama Club Play

Posted by Hope at 12:03 PM 0 comments
Hayley was in the School House Rock Jr. LIVE play that the Drama Club at her school put on.  She did great!  Everyone was awesome!  Here are the pictures.  Sorry for the blurry ones, it was hard when the kids were moving soo much and not using a flash.

I didn't realize I hadn't posted in soo long ... anyway ... a little update....
  • home inspection went well ... so I am starting to pack .. closing on June 15 !!!
  • I turned another year older ... nothing special ..
  • Had an interview at the middle school .. .should be a week or so till I find out if I got the job.
  • Hayley's play is next week !!  Yes ... NEXT WEEK!!
  • Rik is leaving Tuesday and should be back Thursday night late .. just in time for Hayley's play.
  • Rik will hopefully be on "leave" June 1 -5 .. and then leaves June 10 - 20th ... guess .. . that means he will be gone when I close on the house !!
There is a little update.  I am sure I won't be posting much the next couple of weeks as I try to get things packed and prepare to close on the new house.

Home buying....

Posted by Hope at 12:25 PM 0 comments
Well, first. .. home buying is NOT FUN!!! and 0% down does not mean $0 out of your pocket!!!

  • It cost us $1100.00 just to put an offer on the house... ($1000 earnest money and $100 option money)
  • It will be another $372 for the home inspection + $75 for the termite inspection.
  • Now, my Realtor wants me to pay the $ to have the electricity and gas turned on ( to have the inspections done -- mind you the house will not be in my name until we close ... in 30+ days!! )... that would be $600.00 !!!
I'm sure it would seem like such a pain ... but we have to paint the inside of the new house, clean it (cause the homeowners aren't going to), the house has no window covers(blinds) and it's looking like I am going to be doing most of the moving with just me and the kids!!

Every time there is another thing I am going to have to pay for. It makes me think ... maybe I don't want to buy a house!! Or maybe I should just have one built.
