100th Post

I know I haven't been posting much lately, but have been sooooo busy.  I have been packing for the ski trip, packing to move, working, etc.  

For those of you who don't know, the "Ski Trip" is an annual event in our family.  my mom and dad, sister and brother and law, another couple (friends of the family), hubby, Trevor and I all meet up in Colorado and ski for a week.  We always have a great time.  This year Trevor will be in ski lessons for the first time.  I am excited to see how that will go.  

I have also been packing for the move.  My kitchen is filling up with boxes and my house in general is a mess.  Oh well.

We saw The Eagles in concert last night.  It was an awesome show, they sounded great!  I found out today that my two bosses had also been there and our seats weren't that far from each other.  We didn't see each other though.

I will post again when I get back from Colorado!

What Crack?

The crack in the wall is no big deal.  It's a concrete house and they shift slightly.  Everything is a go-ahead, except our closing date was pushed out to Feb. 8.  Yay!!!!


O.j. Simpson died and went to hell.  The Devil met him at the gate and said, "I don't know what to do here.  You are on my list and you obviously have to stay, but I have no room for you.  OK, here's what we'll do.  I have some people who weren't as bad as you so I'll let one of them go, but you have to take their place.  I'll even let you choose which one."

O.J agreed, so the Devil opened the first door.  Inside was Ted Kennedy and a large pool of water.  Ted kept diving in and coming up empty handed.  Over and over he dove and kept surfacing with nothing.  Such was his fate in hell.

"No," said O.J., "I'm not a very good swimmer.  I don't think I could do that all day."

The Devil then opened the second door.  Inside was Al Gore with a sledgehammer and a room full of rocks.  All he did was swing the hammer, over and over and over.

"No good", said O.J. "See, I have this problem with my shoulder.  There's no way I can break rocks all day."

Do the Devil led him to door number three.  Inside was Bill Clinton, naked and tied spread eagle on a bed.  Bent over him was Monica Lewinski doing what she did best.

O.j. stared at Clinton for a moment , then said, "Yeah, OK, I think I can handle this!"

So the Devil says.......

"OK Monica, you can go now."

House Update

Well, the house is coming along.  We had home inspections done on Tuesday, and I have been running around like crazy trying to get paperwork together for the mortgage broker.  The bank (seller) wants to close on Jan. 26.  Apparently that is really fast.

Anyway, the inspections went well, except for one potential problem.  They found a crack in one of the outer walls of the garage.  It may not be a big deal, but it possibly could indicate a major problem.  So we have to have someone else look at that, which we are doing tomorrow.

This would all be a lot easier if I didn't have to work!!!

Good News

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was thinking about buying a house for the first time.  Well, I'm not thinking about it any more, I'm doing it.  We found a house we like and have been negotiating with the bank (it's a foreclosure).  They finally accepted our offer, so we are ready to go!  We are very excited about the new potential purchase.  The new house is in a different town, 11 miles from where we live now.  It will still be nicely centrally located for my job.  The only downside is that Trevor will have to change schools, but he's only in preschool so it shouldn't be too traumatic.

I also finally got an email issue resolved that has been plaguing me for weeks now.
