Ya know the best thing about all the stuff from the last few weeks?

No longer having to keep my house spotless and picked up every time I leave the house. It is very freeing. I look at the dishes in the sink and just thumb my nose at them on the way out the door.

Under Contract

WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!!!! (Just imagine me doing a little happy dance over here.)

Got an offer yesterday, and we accepted last night! WOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!

We close on July 22nd, which is SOOO fast when you think about it. We've got to get up to Big D and find ourselves a house! So we're going this weekend. I got Bubba tickets to the Astros/Yankees Friday night for Father's Day, so we can't go until Saturday. Wish us luck, that this all goes smoothly!!! We hope to find something this weekend and put down an offer so we can get this ball rolling!

I'm so excited!!!

He's a Tough Guy

I have one tough little boy!

Drew was out tonight with his Daddy in the backyard swinging. I came out to water my extremely thirsty plants (time to start the twice-a-day watering already), and Drew came down the side of the house with me to fill up the watering can. On the way back to the backyard, he stepped in the big hole he always manages to step in right on the edge of the driveway. He cried out because he fell, and I was really afraid he'd twisted his ankle or something. I pick him up to check it out and comfort a bit, and he starts struggling to get back down so he can climb up the stairs to the deck again (we're into up-and-down the stairs, over and over again). That's when I notice the blood on my arm. Where did THAT come from? Turns out, Drew busted his nose! I have no idea how, as I know he didn't hit the driveway, or any other solid/concrete object because I was watching him. He must have just busted it on the ground. What is amazing, though, is that he DIDN'T CRY. Just the initial crying/yelling/protest sound. And, blood was gushing out of his nose, so he got himself pretty good. Bubba and I couldn't believe it. Just went on about his business like nothing had happened.

I guess this is a good thing.....there will be no 'crying wolf' if he's truly hurt! Hopefully, this behavior lasts....
