Just a little catch up

I made a promise to myself a while back to keep up with this blog, and I was doing pretty well with that until it got closer to Christmas, and then other events after that have kept me from sitting down to do so.

Christmas was great. Shayna was so happy to see all her new gifts that Santa had brought, and David and I were able to get each other a few things as well. She is already talking about next Christmas. Sheesh, I am just now recovering, lol.

After Christmas was over, and the house was back in it's original shape, we made a decision to try and sell this place so we can get back to my roots in Kentucky, and be closer to our family. David considers my family his, and there is nothing holding us here in Indiana. While I will miss this house, and all the work we put into it, I miss Kentucky so bad that I can't stand it, and I want to see my family more often. You can take the girl out of Kentucky, but you can't take the Kentucky out of the girl.

So, we met with our old realtor, and this place has been on the market for 2 weeks now. We went house hunting last weekend in KY, and absolutely fell in love with this one house. It has been completely remodeled, has all new appliances, and the view...omg the view is to die for. It has a screened in porch in the back that overlooks nothing but rolling hills and valley views. I am kicking myself in the ass for not taking pics of it. It is perfect for us, but I am so nervous that someone is going to buy it out from under us since we are stuck waiting on this place to sell.

Our realtor seems pretty confident that he can get it sold and get us into that other house, but I just am not. I'm trying not to get my hopes up because it's just our luck that it will fall through.

Well, that has pretty much caught this blog up to speed for now, and I have to get a certain little monkey ready for bed.
