Been a while...

It has been a little while since I posted anything. We closed on the house on July 30. We have worked on the house a ton but are still a bit away from moving in. My intentions are to get as much as we can done so we can move next weekend.
It slowed things down so much when we refinished the hardwood. Pretty much wiped out a week of production time to get work done. Then my grandma passed away which made for another unproductive week.
We will get there. May have to take some time off next week...
Erika started soccer this week but is not totally committed to it yet. We will see if she continues this next week. I am encouraging her to but it is ultimately her decision. We will support her whatever it may be... It is time to go pick her up from practice tonight. Take care...

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Well, we still have not closed on the new house. It is expected to close by the end of July. We have been working on the "lender required improvements" to bring things up to a status that the bank will lend on.
Roger is working like a mad man. He is amazing in all that he does.
I am tired. Taking a break from heading to the house tonight after praise team practise. I came home to pay bills and balance the check book but as soon as I sat down, I just want to close my tired eyes.
It is nine o'clock and I have been home for an hour. I better get to it while my mind is still active. I will update photos and house news soon. I hope.

Quick Update

Been pretty busy lately! It seems like we have something going on every evening. Roger did an auction Friday evening for some friends of ours. He does such a great job! Then he had an estate auction on Saturday.
We wrapped up the spring soccer season with a party on Thursday night. Had a wedding in Pocatello and a wedding reception in Inkom on Saturday night and watched it rain all day Sunday. The sun broke out for an hour or so last night, we went for a nice bike ride.
Still waiting on word about the house. The appraisal has been ordered but not done yet. As soon as that is done, things will move along pretty quickly!
Work is good. Erika is going to a volleyball camp this week and 4-H camp next week.
We will keep you posted!

Birthday & House

Erika's birthday was on Thursday. We had grandma and grandpa, Kris & Jason and the kids, my brother's family and Erika's friend Julia and her family over for dinner. It was a lot of fun. The little girl turned 11! Crazy how fast the time goes by!

We also got an accepted offer on a house! We might be homeowners in a month! It is absolutely a project house but it is so exciting to be moving into a place of 'our's'. Finally! I will keep you posted as to the progress on this front!

Is is spring yet?

We have had a pretty busy month. I can't believe it has been a month since my last post!
Soccer is three nights a week and a couple of games on Saturdays if not a tournament and it is officially auction season. We have been on the go for a while. I am able to stop today because Roger is gone to an auction in Phoenix and Erika is gone for her school field trip. She backpacked up the south fork of Mink Creek and will be sleeping in a tent tonight. I hope the rain missed them. It was a downpour when I came home from work!
Roger is in Phoenix at an auction for the NRA. It is their national meeting and he will do two auctions. One tonight and one tomorrow. It is the national meeting for the entire nation so there should be a lot of big wigs there! John McCain, Oliver North, etc.! Wow! I am so excited for him! He was a little nervous but Kevin got to fly to Phoenix and join him! So fantastic for both of them! They were pretty excited to see each other and what an incredible auctioneering opportunity for Roger! I (of course) think he is wonderful and am glad that others have that opinion as well!
We have seriously started looking for a house and think there is a possiblity that we have found one! Exciting but a little scary! I will keep you posted if things fall into place. We are praying for God's will and hoping that it matches our will! :o)

Long week!

This week has seemed sooo long. Spring break without the spring!
Erika went to the dentist this week. No cavities! Wahoo! Only one baby tooth left and the 12 year old molars are ready to pop up anytime. The baby tooth will probably be out within the next couple of days. Cool...
Roger is out of town for his CAI class. He is in Indiana. He has caught a cold and has been studying very hard. Doing well on his quizes. I am proud of him.
Erika has been doing day camps with 4-H for the last couple of days. She got to spend Monday with her friend from school and tomorrow will probably spend with Kris and the kids doing something fun.
Pretty mellow because it is so cotton-pickin cold outside!
