Getting a LITTLE better..at Blogging! HA!

Well we've been one VERY busy family lately. The girls are back in school and i've been trying to get the house ready to put on the market. Then Sunday, we took a drive out to the area we had been looking for a house. LOW AND BEHOLD..we found a georgous house on 14500 sq ft lot that backs up to a WALKING TRAIL..and is literally a hop skip and jump away from the neighborhood elementary school. We HAD to have it. SO, we bought it. It's Beautiful..and everything we wanted. The house is 3300 sq ft..not too big not too small. Has a pool, nice big kitchen, has all sorts of energy efficient things, has a bug barrier-HOLY SMOKES COULD IT GET ANY BETTER-and has a POOL! SO, we grabbed it. SOO sporatic, i know...but it's going to be GREAT to put Hannah & the twins in the public school system..isn't THAT why we pay taxes ANYWAY? Not to pay taxes, and THEN pay MORE schooling to put your kids in a private school that you feel is safe for them. Anyway, i'm stepping off my pedestal now.

Other than that, we are counting down until gma & gpa M make it down so we can head on to VEGAS BABY! I still can't BELIEVE IT! We leave in less that 4 days! WHOA, that's REALLY SOON! BUT, Paul & I are really looking forward to some time alone. We are going to sleep late(maybe), eat out and not worry about kidos bouncing all over the place, maybe gamble a 20 or TWO..but we are NOT big gamblers..so probably not. Maybe we'll sit in the hot tub and drink instead. NOW, THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN!

I apologize for ignoring all my blogging buddies lately. Life is just crazy, but thankfully a happy healthy CRAZY! We are loving life, enjoying our kidos and soo happy to be moving to suburbia soon!

Great news... that is what we did a year and a half ago... then we had the horrible job of selling our house in a market that was going downhill (that was when the home prices in Phoenix were plummeting). We finally did it after three months. Good luck to you.

What did you buy the new one for? How much are you going to list your old one for? How many bedrooms?
