House update

Things fell through with the negotiations on our house. They came REALLY close to what we want to get out of it, but wouldn't quite budge. We felt like since it's only been up for a week, we can probably get what we want out of it, so we told them no. Part of me is relieved because I'll have more time to house hunt and won't have to make a hasty decision. The other part of me has butterflies in my stomach thinking that we let our perfect opportunity pass us by. Hopefully the first part is right.

Andrew and I went together on second looks at some of the houses I liked. We found three good options. They all have pros and cons...not one of them sticks out as the obvious favorite. So, we'll wait and see what happens with our house first. We had another showing last night and one tonight, too. It's good to at least have this interest.

Also, a certain 5-year-old boy was tagged to fill out HIS list of threes and it's pretty cute if you want to read it.

Finally, a big HIP HIP HOORAY because Sanjaya finally got kicked off AI last night!!! And, Shelley, you must've been SO happy that the LOST directors heard your plea to return to the story of Penny finding the island.

I agree that it was time for Sanjaya to go last night. But I couldn't believe Blake and LaKisha were in the bottom 2. Phil did good on Tuesday, but I thought Chris did terrible and should've been in the bottom.
Do you have the MLS numbers of any of the houses you're looking at? I'd love to look at them.

Oh my goodness! I just read Brandon's Journal entry on his blog! So cute! That will be priceless in 20 years! I am glad that you found some houses that you like so quickly, hopefully it will be moving time soon! Seems like I haven't seen you in forever since we missed our walk on Monday! Hope to run into you at Stake Conf, have a great week!

I actually woke up happy this morning knowing that Sanjaya was kicked off. Is that crazy or what? But come on, Blake and Lekisha in the bottom three...it had to be Sanjaya or WWIII would have broken out.

Good luck with finding a house! What was the verdit on the other house on Adam's Ridge?

I love B-Train's list! That's great. Also enjoyed Lost last night. Good luck on the house hunt!

Yes! LOST hearing my pleas! That island does have magical powers... That was an excellent episode, and are we to believe that if Desmond had let Charlie die, then it would have been Penny on the island and not that other girl? And where was the helicopter coming from? Helicopters don't travel far distances, so they must have taken off from somewhere nearby...

Maybe I am the only one who was enjoying Sanjaya on American Idol. No, he couldn't really sing that well, but the entertainment value was great. Honestly, I think it is Lakisha's time to go. My top two predictions are Jordin and Melinda. By the way, has anyone told you that your children are incredibly cute??? : )

Brandon's blog is great! Loved the list! I'm sure your house will sell for a great price at the right time;) At least now you know its a hot real estate commodity, right?
