I'm back!

My house is officially on the market tomorrow!  Pray that it sells quickly and at a fair price.  We are also putting an offer on another home later in the week.  I feel that it is perfect for our family and Lord willing we would love to own it.

My husband and four cats have been living at the lake.  Hubby comes home every week for a night or two.  This keeps our home cat free!  His commute to work has also been cut in half by being there so it is not too much of a hardship.  I would be there too if not for the fact that we live 10 minutes from our daughter's school.  The lake would be a minimum of a one hour commute.  Not so good.  Now when we move to the area we want to live in, our commute will increase, but nothing like driving in from the lake.  BTW, when I say "the lake" I am referring to a family lake house and we are not having to pay rent to stay there.  Isn't that wonderful?  Thank you Aunt Pat!

I'm so excited to have this house ready for sale.  There have been a lot of little things that needed to be fixed or repaired and it is all finally done.  My two nephews were a big help in getting it all done.  Last week I had the house thoroughly cleaned and it looks really good.  Whoo Hoo!

So, I have time to return to my blogging and posting of my weekly menu again. 

Thank you for stopping by and come again!

Taking a short break.

I've been MIA for a couple of weeks.  I've been a busy girl.  We have been preparing our home to sell and it has keep us busy and also, we decided to move to Robert's aunt's lake house while doing this and while it is being shown.  We have four cats and it is better not to have pets in the home while trying to sell it.  Also, hubby works days and nights.  And when he is working nights he has to sleep during the day, and having to get up and leave for a house showing would be very difficult.  We will be back and forth some.  And, most important of all, is that we are very messy people, and the stress of keeping our home show ready would just be unbearable.  Right now I'm in the house for a few days doing some work.  It's been nice to have internet and cable as we don't have that at the lake.  It can be a distraction though...

My menu planning has gone out the window.  It's just to difficult to plan too far ahead right now.  But I will be back soon with that and will try to keep you updated with the house sale.

Thanks for stopping by.  Check back again later.
