Hey! It's Me!

What the What? She's alive??

I am indeed alive and well. Although, at the same time life is a bit chaotic right now, so blogging is at the bottom of the to-do list.

In case you were wondering this is what we've been up to...

We sold our house!! Whoo hoo happy dance!
But we were asked if we could do a quick closing date (Aug. 2!)
Our plan is to leave for Michigan for our annual vacation on August 3, so closing on the 2nd acutally works really well for us. 
The only hitch, is that we have no house to move into. We made an offer on a house, but since it's a Short Sale, we have no idea how fast the bank will make it happen. Or sometimes banks don't even accept your offer and you have to start again. I don't know about the rest of the country but houses are flying off the shelves here in Minnesota. We went to look at 5 houses, and by the time we got to the first house, 3 houses already had accepted offers on them. We LOVED the two houses we did get to see, but by that night they were sold too!!
This is great for the economy, but us not so much!

It looks like we might be renting for awhile, regardless if we get the house or not.

So we have 3 weeks to pack, get some inspection stuff taken care of, put our stuff in storage and close on our house. During this time however, my husband's brother and wife are in town from Taiwan. So there is a lot of stuff planned with them. We are so excited they are here, that we decided to try and do as much as we can, have as much fun as we can and worry about the house details when they leave.

And to top all of that off....

We are going to have a BABY!

Mid-January we are welcoming a little bundle of awesomeness to our home (wherever that may be!)
Tomorrow I am 13 weeks and already I am feeling so much better from what I was feeling. Sick everyday all day, and fatigue that was never ending. I remember being tired when I was pregnant with Everett, but I also worked a nice little desk job, and wasn't chasing after a toddler.
I'm actually looking forward to having two kiddos. I know it will be crazy for awhile, but it's all so temporary.

So, if I seem distant, faraway, not blogging or checking in, you will all know what I am up to.

Say a little prayer that we figure this housing situation out. Lord knows we need all the support we can get!

Homeless in Minnesota,
Sabrina

Sabrina--

I hope you are having a wonderful trip--and that saying goodbye to your house wasn't too sad (or stressful).

I am hoping to encourage you to blog again...so, I am passing on the "sunshine award" to you. You and your blog do bring sunshine to my life. Check out the details at my blog: dosmalltingswithlove.blogspot.com.

All the best,
Nancy
