House hunting

We have been house hunting for what feels like FOREVER. It has taken so long I was beginning to think it was like Bigfoot, ya know, you hear about people finding the perfect house, but you can't find it yourself.

We've looked at houses so often that my daughter groans when we drive by a "for sale" sign. We found a few that we liked & when we'd go to make an offer they would already be pending. One of them went pending an hour after we saw it! It has been extremely frustrating. I thought there was a housing crisis and no one was buying houses, sheesh! Evidently, that must be everywhere BUT here.

Well, out of the blue we stumbled across the perfect house. Big enough for us, all hardwood floors, wonderful location, fenced yard, sun room, attached garage. Just beautiful. Unfortunately it was priced a bit above our price range, but something said "go for it". We prayed and made an offer, a bit under what they were asking, and they countered. In their counter-offer they gave us everything we asked for, plus all the appliances, but they wanted more than we offered, but less than they were asking. I called my mortgage specialist and have been waiting on pins & needles to find out if they will give it to me. Finally, I got the phone call, we are APPROVED! We have found BIGFOOT. My daughter thinks we need a sign made that says "Welcome to Bigfoot" to put on the door after we move in. I kinda agree with her.

I'm as excited as a squirrel on a trampoline!

part-timers syndrome

I seem to have this issue where I can't remember stuff.... well, part of the time. Like words for instance or in the most recent case; passwords.

I have had the same passwords forever and I go to sign into a website & they are all "sorry, um... wrong" and I was all WTH, I'm sure I typed it right. And besides what happened to saving that so I didn't have to type it in every time?
So I try again and again typing the EXACT same thing (because obviously the website is screwing with me) and third try it worked! So now I know the computer is just out for revenge or something. I think because I call it stupid all the time. Evidently my laptop is very touchy. Of course if it would just work properly I wouldn't threaten to beat it or throw it out the window or call it names. I'm just saying.

Oh, right, part-timers syndrome.

Anyone else have this problem of walking from one room to another, but when you get there you forgot why you got up in the first place, so you go, sit back down, get comfortable and then are all oh, crap, dinner needs o come out of the oven? Or you are having a conversation and someone asks a question that you KNOW you know the answer to, but can't come up with the word/name/event. Hours will go by and then you'll just blurt it out; probably to some complete stranger. That person is then all "WTH are you talking about" but when you try to explain it, you can't even remember what the original conversation was about, so they walk away thinking you are just freaking nuts. I'm pretty sure this is how it all begins. Before you know it I'll be showing up at work with only one shoe or no pants or something.

I'm fairly certain I had a point that I was going to make, but with the taunting from my laptop thing I totally forgot what it was. Part-timers strikes again.... I'll probably wake up out of a dead sleep at 3 in the morning and go "oh yeah, that's the point I was going to make".

Well, at least it keeps things new and interesting.... I think.......
