All work and no play

Makes this blog pretty dull!

Weird Al Rocks!

Last night the brothers, Amber, and I went to see Weird Al at the state fair. It was one of the best shows I've ever been to! He played for ~2 hours and and costume changes fro almost every song. The best part was when he brought out Darth Vader, R2D2, and some storm troopers to dance backup. It brought out the inner geek in all of us :)

Its been a long time

Its funny how time gets away from you and then you realize you haven't blogged in over 2 months!

Lots of things have been going on here : Tiffany and Drew have a new baby (check out her new blog at kirincoopergriffin.blogspot.com and send all your good wishes), Stinky boy #1 is now a certified pharmacy technician, Stinky boy #2 just turned 27, I spent 2 weeks in Austin, TX for work but got to see alot of cool things in the off time, and now I've been sick for 3 days (I blame my boss who came to work sick last week)

Still Alive

The dust has settled a little and we are now living in the new house and have a renter for the old house! We are loving the new house and its super good insulation except for when my cell phone is in the other room and I can't hear it ringing :)

The only room left to unpack is my craft/computer room so I'll be blogging more regularly once that is set up. Ok, I'll blog more often but I've never been all that good about updating this regularly!

My new house now looks like a house, at least on the outside. I stopped by today to check the progress and it looks pretty good though they are no where near where they need to be in order to finish by the end of this month. Since my last post they have put up most of the doors, painted downstairs, and painted outside so they are making progress.

If they are late, it just give me more time to sell the old place :)

Sometimes its nice to have the stinky boys around....

...like when you are sick and can't do anything but puke. Stinky boy #1 got up at 2am to help me back to bed and get me water when I couldn't do it myself and stinky boy #2 took a day off of work to take me to urgent care so they could put me on an IV since I'd gotten so dehydrated. I was very glad that day that the stinkers live with me!

In happier news, my new house is about a month away from being finished according to the builder. I don't see how its going to happen since they still need to paint, put in cabinets and counter tops, all bathroom fixtures, flooring, etc but we'll see what happens. I've lowered the price on my current house again and I'm having an open house next weekend so hopefully that will do the trick.

For Sale

My house has been on the market for 4 weeks now and only 1 person has come to look :( I know the market is slow and very competitive right now but geez!

Maybe the interweb can help me sell? Here's a link to the listing for my house: House listing

Its a gorgeous (In my opinion) house that I've lovingly remodeled over the years but sadly my little family has outgrown it. I was hoping to have the stinky boys out of the house by now but since that doesn't seem to be happening, we need a bigger place so I don't kill them! My new house is being built now and I'd love to sell this one before buying the new one.

Now that all the craziness of getting the house ready for sale is over I've begun knitting again. The latest project is a baby blanket for my friend Tiffany. I've just gotten started so I don't have enough done to get a good photo yet but I'll post one as soon as I do.
