Crazy Week!

(Okay, as I was sitting down to type this post I realized something. Something quite important. In my life, that is. It's almost my one year bloggiversary! September 21! It's gone so fast...)

Anyway, back to the subject at hand. This is the week. Hopefully. It's a big week! Lots of things happening in our lives over here:

- Meeting with the bank on Wednesday to see if they will finance our big build
- Hopefully putting the for sale sign up by the weekend...if all goes well. You all know how things go and it might not be till the following week, but we can try!
- The Parade of Homes opens and my show home HAS to be done by Saturday at noon...AAAHHH!!!

See, that's 3 really big things. All in all, it may chalk up to be nuts around here because all the things that go hand in hand with those 3 items include:

* Getting all the rest of the quotes together for the bank
* Doing paint touchups around the house
* Cleaning my carpets
* Cleaning my windows
* Cleaning up the house of little stuff that shouldn't be out for selling
* Did I mention cleaning anywhere?
* Shopping for the show home
* Putting stuff together in the show home
* Miscellaneous meetings that have nothing to do with said 3 items above
* Yard work to tidy up for selling
* Making salsa and apple pie filling (Why this week? Because, of course, that's when the tomatoes and apples had to be ready!! What grand timing!)

I'm happy to say that with all that has to be done, lots has already been done. This weekend I washed my drapes, packed a lot of stuff, Jer finished the basement (Totally 100% done!!!), cleaned my oven and stove top, cleaned out the garage (ready to move boxes and bins into for storage), and even managed to find time to take the girls to the zoo for the day. Now I'm afraid to do anything in my house because it's getting cleaner and cleaner and I want it to stay that way. So let it be known that I would definitely not turn down any offers for supper in order to keep my kitchen and dining room clean, hee, hee : ) I'm kidding of course. I did, however, make mention of this to Jer, saying "I should tell everyone on my blog that I'd be open to dinner invitations. But of course, probably the only invitations will be from people who live in other parts of the world." And my dear husband snorts and says "And you'd be likely to take them up on those offers!" He knows me too well. All Val did was jokingly invite me to a housewarming party and look, I'm going : ) Okay, off to bed so that I can do all those things I need to do tomorrow. Well, some of them. I have to make the most of my day without the girls and get LOTS done.

Woah, you sound busy!! What an exciting time for you. I hope everything goes well in the house selling and building!!

Forget how I found your blog, but just wanted to comment and say hello:)

ValleyGirl said...

Wow. I'm winded just reading your to-do list!! You are in for one busy week! I'll remember you in my prayers as you juggle all those things AND being a mom.

(PS. Quite honestly, I'd love to hang out at Wal-Mart in the middle of the night just for the heck of it with a few friends, too. Just to feel young and crazy again! But that's got nothing to do with shopping -- that's because nothing else as fun is open 24 hours!!

Several weeks ago, I went back to your archives and happened to read that post. BEAUTIFUL pictures!! Looks like one incredibly fun night!!)

Dedee said...

Good luck this week. I've got to do tomatoes too. Thankfully I've got a while before the apples come.

Will you post your recipe for apple pie filling please?

Pretty please?

Erin said...

Randi - Hi and welcome!

Valleygirl - Thanks for your prayers this week, I'm sure they'll be much needed!

Dedee - Yes, I'll post the recipe. It's a freezer recipe.

Becky - Yes, I think I can, I think I can!
