Well I finally got all the leftover junk packed up from our garage sale. It only sat in our yard two extra days. I'm sure people in town loved that I added to the reputation as a hick small town. Very trailer trash of me. LOL And while I really appreciated the people that came by and took stuff off my hands, FOR FREE.....I can't help but wonder where these people where when I was actually selling this stuff for DIRT cheap? Normally I wouldn't complain. But we do this sale every year. The proceeds go to my kids school clothes. I guess after last years $900 success, I am a bit bummed out this year that we didn't come close. I just need to accept that last year was a fluke. sigh......looks like I will be coughing up my OWN money this year for their clothes.
I'm kinda feeling funky about school starting back up. Usually by this time I am so ready for those 'back to school' routines to kick in. And while I think I will get a better grip on the household routines (housework, cooking meals), I am kinda sad for the kids to go back. I think this Summer just went by way to fast for me.
I'm in a wierd place right now with the whole city buying our house situation. They say if things were all to fall into place that it would be a minimum of two years before they were to begin demolishing my house construction on the new road. However they said the city still could approach us in 6 months with an offer. AND they said they were very concerned about our feelings. LOL I'm thinking that tomorrow when I go into town hall to pay my water bill; that I will tell them to give me AT LEAST a year before they make an offer. I just don't see us ready to move that soon. WE could negotiate to rent back till they are ready to begin construction. But I want to reinvest the money into a new house. I just need AT LEAST a year to get our credit back in shape and maybe even put some extra aside. We always talk about moving...but now that its a reality it freaks me out. I feel kinda like the decision was taken from me. I want to move on my terms...not the cities. AND on top of that. I'm a real estate agent. I did a search. I do not like ANYTHING that is currently listed in our area, other than a few unattainable high priced homes. So I need time!

What this had done though, is made me appreciate this house so much. I plan on spending all my remaining time inviting others over to enjoy it as well:-)

So I could write a few more chapters. But this already is disjointed enough. Just spewing some thoughts that are tucked into my brain.
