Final decision....maybe

Well, I think we have decided to wait on getting a house. Maybe next year we will do something. I just don't know what to do really, but I figure if it's that hard of a decision then it's not the right time.

We got a good faith estimate from the lender the other day and while I'm sure a lot of it we wouldn't end up actually needing it just kind of scared both of us I think. All I know is the next morning I woke up and my first thought was.......We can't do this yet.

So I talked to DH and I think he agrees. Hell, I don't even know if I agree or not! But I think we are going to wait. Maybe. Probably. Yes, we are going to wait. I think.

I'll let you know.

Super no more

A while back I changed the setting on husbands cell phone so when I call him it displays "Super Wife" instead of Kim. I think I'm going to have to change that back.

Imagine if you will.......

Loving wife goes to washing machine to wash some clothes for the next day. Notices husbands clothes in washer that need to be put in the dryer. Now, a lot of people would just throw them in the dryer, right? Not Super Wife. She knows that husband sometimes doesn't like to dry some of his clothes in the dryer but prefers to hang them up to dry. So like any Super Wife would do she goes to ask husband what he wants to do with them.

The day is over and husband and kids are already in bed..but not Super Wife. She's up late doing some things that needed done before tomorrow. Moving brothers toys out of the way so husband wouldn't be bothered with them when he was getting dressed for work, getting some money out of her purse for husband so he can eat lunch the next day, making sure the food from supper was put back in the fridge.......stuff like that.

So, Super Wife goes in to the bedroom to ask husband if she can dry all the clothes. He responds with a "yes". So all is good in Happy Town. Husbands clothes are in the dryer. Super Wife and kids clothes are washing to be put in the dryer in the morning. Super Wife heads to bed and falls in to blissful sleep.

Next morning Husband gets up at his usual 5:00 a.m. to get ready for work, comes to tell his beautiful Super Wife good-by as he always does. Super Wife brushes her hand on his leg as they are kissing good-by.

Wait......his pants feel sopping wet..........Oh no!!! Yes, Super Wife forgot to turn the dryer on last night. And loving Husband only has 2 pair of jeans and yes......both pair were in the dryer. Dammit! Poor guy had to wear wet jeans to work.

I think I'm going to have to change my title......I'm not feeling very Super today. :( I haven't talked to him since this morning I hope he's not too mad!

Harvest time (what there is of it)

Wheat harvest around these parts will be dismal this year. Late freeze, way too much rain, army worms.....we've had it all baby. My dad cut a little last night and brother got to ride along. I took some pictures with my cell phone so they aren't the best quality but I think you get the idea.

I see the light at the end of the tunnel

Thank Goodness!!! Next Thursday sister is getting her hair cut OFF. And I couldn't be happier about it. She's been growing it out so she can donate it to Locks of Love and man has it been a struggle. She is so tender headed and hates getting her hair brushed so every day is a battle.

I told her they are going to send her hair back because they won't want that tangly mess LOL

I feel like putting one of those tickers in my siggie saying how long til she gets it cut. Thursday at 5:30 pm. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

We be jammin'

We are finally in the 21st century here in Happy Town! We now own an MP3 player and are soon on our way to being a two MP3 player household. I got husband one for Father's Day and now sister thinks she needs one of her own. She's spending some of her allowance money on hers.

No they aren't iPods or anything like that but hey.......who cares! They play music and the radio and that's all that counts right?.........right?

Husband's has some Nickelback and Cross Canadian Ragweed songs on his so far. Now the hunt is on for more songs!

Let the taxing begin!

One Step Closer

Well, we got the deed signed and notarized, now I just need to get it to the courthouse and get it recorded. I am officially freaking out. Some days I can't imagine that we will actually end up with a new house and other days I'm already imagining where the furniture will go and cooking meals in my new kitchen.

We'll see. I might get to the courthouse tomorrow. EEK.

In other news, my grandma is still hanging on. Better but not better. Physically she's not on her deathbed anymore but mentally she doesn't know anyone or know what's going on really.

There is a lady in the nursing home my grandma is in that has been in nursing homes for SEVENTY-FIVE years! That poor lady. I guess her parents gave her up when she was 10 because they couldn't take care of her anymore. She just had her 85th birthday. That is so sad to me, just think of all the love she missed out on because you know they didn't used to treat people with disabilities so great back when.

Wow, makes me really appreciate what I have now and what I had growing up.

Trying something new

I've been trying for what seems like years to get dh to understand certain things. I need a hug now and then, I need an "I love you" now and then without me saying it first. He just doesn't get it at all. He always says he will but he doesn't. I don't think he gets how important that kind of stuff is to me, how I actually need it, not just want it. He's not the lovey-dovey kind of person and I'm aware of that, I respect that. But I am and he needs to also respect that, right?

So the other night we had just went to bed and I said something about a kiss. He wasn't really paying attention to me and for some reason it just came to me! It's what Tertia has been talking about on her blog lately. The "Love Language" stuff. So I tried to remember them all and was telling him about it. He actually seemed interested and was listening to me! I need to go to the website and get some more information but I'm feeling really positive about this.
