Happy New Year... I'm still here!

Wow, I have been neglecting my poor blog and bloggy friends lately! I would say I have plenty of reasons, but I don't want to make this a habit!

To make it short and sweet... after the last post about the crazy house that we saw we did end up making an offer on the "normal" house. They counter offered and so did we, but finally we came to an agreement that wasn't too bad. We had the home inspection, which didn't find too many things wrong, and then we left for Christmas vacation!
Nothing like trying to do everything to buy a house over the phone and email!

So, if everything goes well, we should be closing just after the middle of the month, which will give us some time to do a few things before we move in... like make a laundry room in the back of the garage rather than in the kitchen! Get the ceiling spray painted (it's popcorn ceiling), and a couple other minor things.

I got to pick out new vinyl for the kitchen this week! They had to repair the floor from a leak and we asked to choose the vinyl with their approval. It will be so much nicer than the 80's "country" pattern that's there now and we can match it out into the laundry room too.

Other than thinking about the house... we spent 10 days in Oregon with the grandparents and had a great time. Well, other than being sick and in a house full of people that makes sleeping hard! We even had a Christmas night ER visit with Cory spiking a temperature up to 104. He was fine with lots of Tylenol and Motrin, but oy, not a place we really wanted to visit!

I'll write more about Christmas and New Year's later... hopefully complete with pictures!

How have your vacations been?
