What a completely crazy week! I really could use some thoughts and prayers.

Don has T/W/Th off with his job right now. Tuesday we had planned that Don was going to court... but it got put off until Wed. Which meant that we had to try to get everything done that we had planned for Wed, on Tues. The joy of the job. :( Court was Wed morning, and then in the afternoon we had a 5 hour First Time Home Buyers class. Nothing got done on Wed.

Thursday was Cyan's dress rehearsal for her dance recital on Sat. We tried to get as much done as we could, but then the day is split in half like that, it is hard to stay motivated or on task for any length of time.

But this was the last weekend Don had before the move.

This morning, Cyan tripped on the patio and somehow ripped off her toenail and some of the top of her toe... the day before her dance recital. Poor baby is all kinds of messed up. Hopefully, she will still be able to dance. But it doesn't look good. Good thing her shoes are a size too big or she wouldn't have a chance at all.

In housing news, we are right on schedule. Our banker is cutting it a bit close for the signing, but she feels really confident about it, and that makes me feel better. We are trying to set up a meeting with the owners of the house for Monday so I can get a feel for the new place and the lady can walk me around the yard and let me know where she put what so I don't mess up her yard that is so beautiful now.

The stress is picking up. The end of the school year, start of the good weather, etc is bringing out the thugs and so Don has gotten quite a bit of overtime which leaves me to do all the home front stuff... and right now that is really overwhelming. My body is starting to react. I have a condition where my body starts rejecting food if I am too stressed. I haven't mentioned it, because it has been under control for the past 4 years.... but it is starting to surface right now a little bit and of course, that is adding to the stress. There is just a whole lot on my plate right now...

Buying a first home in itself is so stressful so I can totally relate.

I love love love the idea of the owners walking you through the home!!! I want to do that when someone buys ours now! LOL!! How did you get that? Did you ask for it or did the previous owners??

I asked for it. They have been there for 35 years... I figured they know a lot that I wouldn't know. Plus, I picked their house... and I want them to know I am not going to go in and rip up the garden, or cut down all their big beautiful bushes etc... put them at ease about leaving their home to us. You know?

You are an awesome homebuyer! I would love,love,love to know that someone cares enough about things like that! the man we bought our home from past away some time ago and his daughter brought us a lock box of papers from the house. That was neat but we would have liked to have been able to ask him soooo many questions about this place as he custom built a lot of it!

I have been thinking about you and will say prayers that your stress stays under control!

((hugs))I hope all goes well with all your stresses, and that Cyan is better and could dance at her recital.

Good luck with your signing and home buying, it's a stressful time and sounds like you are doing it right.

You are the home buyer everyone DREAMS of having! Buying a home can be so stressful. I think I read once that it is one of the top 20 life's most stressful events. In the end, it will be worth it and you'll have a beautiful home that is yours! One day at a time... one day at a time. My thoughts are with you! :-)
