What A Day

It was one of those days that you know something is going to happen and it may not be a good something either.

Waking up was hard to do this morning.  I was scheduled to sub all day.  When I finally looked in the mirror, I  noticed my left eye a little red.  I thought maybe it was my contact and I would come home during 2nd period conference and clean the contact.

I did that and continued my day.  Nothing changed, so I called my busy doctor's office in the town I just moved from and now I have a prescription sitting at Walmart.  I can tell that my eye is getting a little worse.  I hope I sleep ok tonight and the medicine works fast.  Going to work on getting a new doctor in this town tomorrow.

House Update
At lunch today, my sweet husband searched online for the house that we put an offer on.  We haven't heard from our realtor and have been on pins and needles wanting to know if our offer was accepted.  Well, we saw the words "Under Contract".  Our hearts sank and I was pretty close to bawling right there.  We told ourselves that maybe it's a misprint since we haven't talked to our realtor.  Took a deep breath and went on about our day.

Later in the day, my hubby called the realtor and she said that they (meaning Fannie Mae) accepted someone else's offer on the house.

So right now the dream of painting and having family over in a place of our own has been put on pause.

Hopefully it will be a short pause.

ok...happy thoughts

Lucky # 7

7 months
Today is our seven month wedding anniversary!!! Yay!!  Yes, I'm celebrating every month.  I love celebrations!! :)  I'm the luckiest girl in the world to be married to this sweet, caring, loving, talented, and smart man. :)

The last time I updated my blog I mentioned that we were looking at houses and possibly putting a bid in.  Well, after two bids not accepted, we couldn't go any higher.  Too much work and too much money for the house.  We passed on bidding higher on Friday.  My hubby was sad.  I was sad.  So I went home to look at manufactured homes.  I only looked for a minute then decided to search again for houses in our area.  Maybe houses were hidden somewhere on the internet and I haven't found them yet.

Well, I found something on  No picture, so I put the address in my phone and took off in my car.  It happens to be really close to where we both work.  My hubby and I looked at it after he got off work. We got in touch with our realtor and today we put in an offer.  This house is perfect for us.  Needs paint, new flooring, and a few holes repaired and that's about it.  I'm very excited and hope they accept the offer soon.

Who knows
...what the future holds.  A new house?  Staying in this apartment for a few years?  New job for me?  Staying at home?  Vacations?  A baby?  Who knows?  I'm just excited that I'm spending it with Jeff. :)
