UGH!

I HATE SELLING OUR HOUSE! I am already tired of having to keep the house clean and being prepared at all times. Plus, I think there is a really good chance that we are going to lose the house we were hoping to get. The price came down quite a bit yesterday so I really doubt it will be around much longer. I am so sad....

Mike is really liking his new job. He really hasn't missed being at home too much because he is so busy at work. They set him up with a company truck and cell phone plus all the tools he could think of needing. He seems to really like the guys he is working with too. The job is the same as what he was doing but also very different. He has a lot more paperwork to do but less operating equipment than before. Also, the equipment he said is HUGE! It makes the stuff he was running before look like toys.

Olivia is loving school more and more all the time. She is so matter of fact about it too. Her attitude is "Of course I am in school. I am big."

Katie got a tattoo this week. It is a small asian character for family. I can't believe she actually laid there while they did it. She is so needle phobic it isn't funny. She said it only took about 2-3 minutes but it hurt like crazy.

Well that is it on the update. Things are fairly boring here. ;)

I haven't got your last two post updates... stupid bloglines! Anway, you're selling your house? Will be praying it sells quickly for maximum $$!! And about your other house? We missed out on a couple we REALLY had our hearts set on, and ended up with this one. This is definitely the house for us, its perfect, and it's almost tripled in value since we bought it!!! So, as hard as it is - leave it with God, coz He knows what he's doing!!! (I tell myself this EVERYDAY re: our Mini in China!!!)

OMG! Katie got a tattoo? Brave girl!

Just re-read my comment: when I say "your other house" I'm referring to the one you are hoping to buy!

I know. I hate selling too. Hence the fact that I am staying put for a good long time...

I've been praying about the house and really hoping it sells quickly for you!! Also, great news that Mike's job is going well. So happy to hear that!

The tattoo sounds cute. If I ever get one, I might steal the Chinese character idea. :)

It always seemed to work out that the "right" new house was the one that the deal worked best and it was available when we needed it to be available. Hope all works out for the best.
