Crazy things can happen:

All of a week after starting to look for an old house to buy we’ve received an unrelated offer from someone to buy my lot for 2x what I paid for it and 1/3rd more than its worth. Great timing!

So we’re selling it and trying really really hard to find a house in a neighboring town. Nothing we want is on the market but we’re waiting for the right house in the right neighborhood to come on the market.

Big changes y’all!

Laying in the sun with my cuddle kitten.

Some days at work are harder than others and today was dreadful.

I think I need some vitamin d and a nap. So glad the sun is shining.

63 days y’all

Chuck and I have 64 days to find a house and put an offer on it. Our lease is up August 1, and closing on a house takes ~45 days.

So if we haven’t found anything by June 15, we’ll be up shit creek with out a paddle.

Today we physically went to 2 houses with the realtor and they were terrible. Nothing else on the market in the area we want to move to remotely appeals to us. (30 minutes from the town we both grew up in, woo changes!)

Fingers crossed tightly that something good pops up in the next 2 months or we might have to sign another lease and cry a lot.

All we need are locusts.

I’m serious.

I work in an IT department. Someone downloaded the cryptolocker virus(the one that encrypts all your files and puts a ransom on them) into the whole damn network. So 500 employees can’t work because their files are encrypted.

We’re short handed so they put ME on the phones to deal with people(I’m not nearly techie enough to fix real problems)

Then several main enterprise systems went down and you might as well just set the whole place on fire.

D got her yearly shots today and I was kind of shocked that she’s lost 5 pounds since her last visit. I guess that’s what really good food and exercise can do for a pup?

They also reminded me that she’s now a 12 year old lady- which is crazy because she’s annoying/hyper like a 12 week old puppy.

And she’s heartworm negative which is always nice to hear!

The day before the wedding my grandfather noticed my tattoo for the first time.

Half curious, half upset: “let me see that”

So I showed him. Then my step-grandmother wanted a photo of me with it lol.

Could be worse!
