I want a house and it might just be possible in the near future. We are preparing our current home for the market now....hubby even caved and let me hire some people to help out! This is huge because he is notoriously cheap and will do everything himself whether he knows how or not. With help I'm thinking/hoping we can put a sign on it within a month. I doubt my dream house will still be on the market then, or even my second choice but there are many more houses out there that meet our criteria so I'm not worrying...then again, once we meet with the bank next week we just might be able to put an offer on one of the ones we love. Fingers crossed...and toes.

Abby had her preschool check up today. She had one back in Jan. but failed it. lol. Ok, so they kept us waiting more than an hour past our appt time and then put an eye patch on the child...she was playing pirates and doing nothing else no matter what.
Today she was perfect. She answered every question that was asked, got through the sight and hearing tests, drew the required pictures and when we were ready to leave she insisted on standing on one foot while I counted to 10. This was a part of the first checkup and she couldnt do it for more than 5 seconds so she practiced her little heart out. Even the booster didnt bother her...and they gave her a garfield bandaid which was awesometastic (her word, not mine).

My nephew, who has a host of problems, is having surgery tomorrow to put a shunt in his head. I dont understand how it all works because I refuse to google it...did that with my thyroidectomy and it was just not a good idea. All I know is that it involves a hole drilled in his skull. He has fluid build up and it is damaging his optic nerves and could cause blindness so he kinda needs it...he's getting something done with his ears too because his hearing sucks. Prayers and/or good thoughts please. =o)

Pictures of something soon...not sure what but blogs look kinda boring without the occasional pic so stay tuned.
