Passed Inspection

The condo passed inspection with flying colors. The new owners are not asking me to fix a thing. This is a relief too me since I hate fixing things around the house. I've started packing. Two boxes down and many more to go.

A thought to sold.....

Last Friday, I sent an e-mail to my wonderful real estate agent, Angel about what my condo is worth and the possibility of moving to a four bedroom home. She got back with me and I told her I needed to think about it.

Saturday while driving home, Angel called and asked if she could show my condo to her clients just in case I decided to sell. I had two minutes to pick up the house (a lot of stuff can fit into the oven). The couple looked at the condo for about 5 minutes and out the door. My thoughts, "that was nice"

Saturday evening, Angel calls to inform me that they LOVE my condo and will think about it over the weekend.

Well, yesterday......SOLD for fair market value......GREAT!!!!!!

I'm homeless.....until I found....

Our new home about two miles away in the newer subdivision with clubhouse, two pools, hot tub, fitness center, park, etc.....

I have a brand new 4 bedroom all with walk in closets, 2 1/2 baths, 2261 square feet, small backyard (just enough mowing). This house is GREAT!!!! and the best part.....I got a killer of a deal because of Angel and I had already purchased my condo through the same builder.

We all close on April 29th and moving day is Saturday May 1st. This also means I qualify for the $6,500 tax credit.

Does this seem possible in todays market? Selling without even listing and one showing.

Pinch me because I think I'm dreaming.

Well Baby Checks

Yesterday, The Girls and I went to the pediatrician for their 4 year and one year well baby checks. Here are there stats:

Weight 30 lbs (finally)----5th percentile
Height 38 1/2 inches-----25th percentile
Healthy and happy. Charlee was happy because she didn't need any immunizations.

Weight 22 lbs 2 oz-------70th percentile
Lenght 29 inches--------55th percentile
Head 18 inches----------55th percentlie
Healthy and happy except for bilateral ear infections (this baby is always happy, never crys, tugs on ears, or runs a fever). I'm blessed. She also received two immunizations.

Our visit was 1 1/2 hours long but with these results, it's worth it.

Growing UP!!!!

Even though Natalee is not officially one years of age, I decided it was time to turn her car seat around. She is well over 20 lbs and will be one next week. I think she likes it. Mommy likes being able to see her without the use of mirrors.

Charlee also likes having Natalee sitting face forward.

Return To Duty

I've been cleared for duty on March 25th.

I went to the surgeon today for my 6 week check up. He discovered what was causing all my pain, discomfort, and "popping" sound. A "suture clip" was ripping through my tissue causing the popping sound. He was able to remove the clip in the office without any problems. It looked like a BB Pellet. How can a small piece of metal cause so grief? The suture clip typically doesn't cause any problems. It just stays were it is suppose too, doesn't move, and stays with you until you die. Rarely, does it cause problems.

Just my luck.....I'm the rare case. That is my life.

Best Friend

This weekend I moved Natalee into Charlee's room and turned Natalee's room into a toy room. They love it and so does Mom. The girls are best of friend. The move has been great. All the toys in one area which makes for easier clean up.
The Girls love bathtime and shower caps
