Good News/Bad News

I received fantastic news yesterday. The buyers of our house are going to let us out of the contract. While I want to believe it was out of the goodness of their hearts, I believe that gentle persuasion (from a lawyer) and $ had more to do with it. But I don't really care at this point. We get to stay. They are seeking some damages, and I am more than willing to give them what is fair. I do feel REALLY bad for this entire mess.

So neighbors.....I don't know for you if it qualifies as good news or bad news. But the news is......we are here to stay. FOREVER!

Private Parts

Private parts? Yeah that's right. You heard me. This blog is one of the private parts of my life. I didn't mind sharing it, until I realized that there are "haters" out there. I am going through some real personal things right now...and quite frankly, I don't want the "haters" to have access to my life.

So, what I need is for those friendlies that want to still be a ♫ Part of my world ♪ , leave me your email address in the comments. For you "haters", why you gotta ruin everything?

Last Week In A Nutshell

Abbi had been working REALLY hard on her Science Fair project for several weeks. The experiment was basically to find out how much water plants needed to grow. She took 1st place, and is off to District this week.

Then Abbi and I headed of to St. George for her dance competition. We were roughly Cedar City, when I got my very first speeding ticket. With everything that I'm going through right now, I cried my eyes out. SHE showed me no mercy. Once we arrived in St. George, I made a phone call that I had been putting off for an entire week. I called the buyers of my house to plead my case. SHE showed me no mercy either. Seeing as though I think they found my blog, I won't go into further detail. ( watching for the next post I make.)

Here are the girls after performance. Abbi, Lexy and Addison. The team took 1st and 3rd places. They did such a good job!

On our way home, we had to stop in Beaver for Abbi's county report. She has chosen to do the Travel Brochure. (For all of you who haven't had the pleasure of this yet....) It's not JUST pictures of the important's pictures with child in it. We did stop at Cove Fort. That was really pretty cool. The missionaries give you a tour of it. We were lucky that they were open even though it was Sunday.

When we got home, Kaisey was just getting up from a nap. She practically dove for me, and once I had her in my arms, she laid a big sloppy kiss on me. This is the first time that I have left her overnight. It was very hard for me.

Kaisey however continued to be absolutely adorable. While she was eating her dinner, she kept pulling the shakey face? I don't know how to describe it. Every kid does it. Where they clench up their fists and tighten their face and kinda shake? Here's a picture of it.

♫ Should I Stay or Should I Go? ♪

That is the question. We did sell our house, and now regretfully we've changed our minds. For many, many reasons....and don't ask...cuz I don't want to go there. Will our buyers have compassion and let us out of the contract? I don't know. Their realtor will not call ours back. So will we be in the middle of a lawsuit in 30 days? I sure hope not.

So to cheer myself up, I'm gonna buy myself a Sphynx kitten. How does this help? It just does, and it's my anything goes right?

Scentsy Gone Wild

My kids were playing ball in the house, and spilled my Scentsy all over creation tonight. I was really pretty mad, but I thought I handled myself pretty well considering all the stress I'm currently in. My sweet precious Abbi came up to me with tears in her eyes, handed me a wad of money and said, "Here mommy. I'm really sorry. Buy a new one." She has been saving really hard for a new bike. So this was a very hard thing for her to do.

I feel so blessed to have such wonderful children, that I complain about all the time. My world would be shattered without them.
