Orlando here I come

So I'm off to sunny Orlando, FL for the next seven days. I'm so glad, I really..really need this break. I'm packed, except for the step-son who decided he'd pack himself and pack all his dirty laundry. NICE!!! Ijust spent the past five hours at my mom's doing laundry to come home and find out that I'm not done and will have to do more laundry when I arrive in Florida. I have half a mind to let him wear dirty clothes for a week, but alas I'm not that much of a bitch.

So don't miss me too much, not than anyone reads this, I'll be back before I know it and then my mundane life will begin once again.

T-minus 35 hours

In about 35 hours I'll be on my way to sunny Orlando. With only 1-hour left of work I can't wait. This vacation is long over due. With the step-son being home all summer hubz and I didn't get our normal break that I'm use to so I'm a little run down. I realize I'll probably need a vacation from my vacation with both the sisters and their significant others plus my nephews coming but at least it's a week long break from work and for the most part life. If only my house would unpack itself while I'm gone. Some how I doubt it though.

About an hour after my last blog Gozie was back home. Hubz found him over in a completly different neighborhood. We think he just took the woods. I was so happy. He will no longer be allowed outside without adult supervsion. At least until we put up chicken wire or get him a run for the backyard.

Sweet Gozie

As I type this my sweet baby Gozer has run away and we can't find him anywhere. Of course we're in this brand new neighborhood so I know we're not getting him back. I'm so upset now that's all I can write. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that we find him or he comes home.

First To Do Accomplished...ALMOST

So I painted the pantry (I just typed nursery and had to delete that) last nite and hubz and his best friend are hanging my shelves tonite. HOORAY!!! One thing down, one million more things to do. Tonite I think I'll start working on our bedroom. Thursday the step-son has his first soccer practice so any unpacking will have to be put off until we're done with that, but I think I'll probably just be finishing up our room.

Friday I have to get the truck inspected/emessions tested so we can renew our tags before vacay since expire before we get back. Lord knows the last thing we need is another ticket. I think after I'm done with the truck I'll head to Lowe's for painter's tape so I can start get the step-son's room ready for painting. Hubz thinks step-son should have the biggest room, even bigger than ours, for himself. However, that's not what we agreed so that's not how it's going to be. We agreed he'd have the medium size room, just because he's overindulged and has way too much crap does not mean that our agreement changes. If that makes me a horrible person so be it, but I don't think he should get the room we agreed would be for two kids all to himself just so that hubz does have to give up the extra room in the basement.

Only two more days until vacation!!!

We're in! We moved Saturday morning. We still have our big tv and the extra fridge left over at the neighbor's and bil's houses but other than that all our stuff is into the house. The house is full of boxes and I'm completely overwhelmed and exhausted, but I'm so glad to be in OUR house! I finished unpacking the dining room yesterday and mowed the lawn...I know quite the over achiever am I. The FIOS guy came and got our tv, internet and phone up and running so all we're missing now is hot water. The gas man came and turned on the gas, but apparently something on the water heater isn't working, but that's small potatos. My mom's letting us use her shower and hopefully we can have hot water before we leave for vacay on Saturday.

Hubz is going to be gone Thursday nite to NY for work so it's me and the step-son plus the dogs all by ourselves. I'm house sitting my SIL's pit puppy...she's stupid but cute. Gozer loves to have someone to play with so I can't complain. Mom has Nakita b/c she got spayed last week and we didn't think all the excitement plus the two puppies would be good for her. So she'll come home Saturday before we leave for some quality time. We have to put baby Gozer in a kennel and I'm not happy about it but there's no other choice, our regular dog sitter (my mom) is going on vacay the same time as us.

Well now that you're all caught up I'll be sure to update with house goings on for the rest of the week then it's off to Orlando. I can't wait...I totally need a vacation.

It Ours!!!

Well, we finally closed on our house. By 1030 yesterday morning we were finally and officially homeowners. Hubz says it was anti-climatic, guess he wanted streamers and balloons to fall from the ceiling, but I didn't care I was just excited to finally have our houses. The payments wound up being about $40 more than we expected, but we'll refinance in a few years (hopefully) and then that won't even matter. We're cleaning carpets this week and then we move our stuff in on Saturday...I can't wait. Pictures and what not to come...

Monday can't be here soon enough. This time Monday I'll FINALLY be a homeowner. I swear I didn't think this day would ever get here. So with this impending sign of adulthood looming close there are still things to be done. I have to go to the bank tonite and get a bank check for $1772.32..HOLY HELL that's a lot of money. Tonite we're also taking the boys, my lil bro and the step-son, to the county fair. We missed it last year, but we're trying to make it a yearly thing. I really just go for cotton candy, real lemondae and funnel cake..mmmmm funnel cake. Saturday is a little baby shower for my friend Diana. Me and the sister-in-laws missed her original shower due to family obligations, so we're having a special shower for her just the five of us, Mo's coming too. Sunday looks like I can relax...a little suprise brunch for on of the mom's gf's but other than that I see a day of relaxing...I hope. Then it'll be Monday and I'll be signing away my first born!!!! We're not acutally moving our stuff into the house until next Saturday, but so what the house will finally be ours!!! Only we go on vacation the following week so we get to enjoy our house and being back with the dogs for a short period before we go away for a week, then it's back into the swing of things with the start of school, for the step-son I start in October, soccer, cub scouts, bowling and RCIC. Few it's going to be a busy year..but it'll be over before I know it and then Melissa will be getting married and hubz and I will be jump on the baby making band wagon.

The stupid bank finally signed our deed on Tuesday. We're closing on Monday. Only 2 1/2 weeks late! BASTARDS!!! At least everything, except for the gas, is already on. I'd already scheduled for the Verizon to come and activate our FIOS on the 18th so it'll be movies for a little bit but not to long. Besides I'll be to busy unbacking and tearing apart the half bath to worry about TV. I tell you what I'm excited that'll I'll be able to get my GH and Army Wives back. The only stressful part is that we move next weekend and then we're in the house for one week exactly before we leave for vacation. When we get back it's school, soccer, cub scouts and RCIC for Aidan. Bowling for me and the hubz and in October I start school.

Did I mention I'd registered to start my Master's? I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I think we can still work it so we can statr TTC next fall. If we get pregnant right away I'll just be super pregnant when I recieve my diploma, but it'll be so worth it. It means when my 10 year HS Reunion comes around I'll not only have an MBA but I'll also have baby. Of course seeing as things haven't gone as planned since I left undergrad we'll just have to wait and see.

Day 4...

We've been homeless for four days now and it doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon. We rushed to get all our paperwork together for our financing and what not and now we're just standing still. It's frustrating and completely unacceptable. What gives banks and settlement companies a right to treat people this way. I wanna know what the hell the hold up is. And the excuse that this paper we're waiting for is computer generated doesn't wash with me. Computer generated or not everything starts with a human. So find out what dip shit screwed things up and get me in my house!

While I appreciate that my BIL & SIL have given us a place to live I want and need my own space. I survived two years in college sharing my space and it was HORRIBLE. I need to be able decompress with my stories, which I've now missed two weeks of, and a nice snack before starting dinner. I need my dogs to be driving me nuts. GRRRRRR...I'm losing my patience very quickly now b/c we're going on a week and half. WTF!
