I have taken a break from blogging and I wasn't even planning on taking one. I looked back to my last post and was shocked when the date was April 12th! It sure doesn't seem like that long.
First of all, I want to thank those of you who left comments for me on my birthday. I really appreciate each one of them.
Now I want to catch you all up on what's been going on. Jimmy was on vacation the week after Easter. A while back I showed this picture
I asked for your opinions on what colors to paint our house. Vacation was definitely NOT a vacation. On Monday and Tuesday it was kinda rainy so we didn't get started painting until Wednesday. A two-day job turned into four days. Jimmy painted the siding, Katie and I painted the shutters, and I painted all of the doors. Here's what our house looks like now
Look at that beautiful sky! We had some beautiful weather for painting.
Now on to more exciting things. This coming August we will have lived in our house for 7 years. Jimmy has an Aunt and Uncle who bought the house for us. They paid half down and financed the other half and we paid "rent" to them. Also, while Jimmy was on vacation we were able to get our own loan and pay off the loan that Aunt B and Uncle M got when they bought the house. We are closing on Thursday and we will be homeowners!
We went to the Curious Cat Saturday and it is going really well. The last time we went (which was the Tuesday while Jimmy was on vacation) we hadn't sold much at all. I was getting worried. So, I was thanking the Lord when we went back!
I hope you all are having a great evening and I'm going to get back to reading and commenting.
