Well, I'm relieved and relatively happy now too, as the appraisal on my house and property is now over and done with!
I've been pretty much a nervous wreck trying to get things accomplished to make the house generally appear a bit nicer but man, that's one stiff ticket to write, ya know -especially with all the boxes and stuff sitting around that are part of Mandy's impending move, plus the general upheaval that comes in a matter of minutes, sometimes, with a seven-year-old and an almost ten-year-old loose in their respective bedrooms!
Both the kids informed me this morning -well about noon -that their rooms were all picked up. I'm so glad I didn't go upstairs and check that out or I would have been downing several xanax tablets in a row to calm my frazzled nerves. (In case you're wondering, my version of "cleaned up" and their versions -definitely do not match! They don't even come close to thinking about matching or meshing!
But anyway, it's done. And on a wing and a prayer -maybe a lot of prayers will be needed, I really don't know how the place fared with the appraiser although she did seem to like the dimensions, plus that the windows are fairly new throughout the house, furnace is pretty new too, fully insulated now as well so I hope those are enough plus things to carry me through to the end of this process now!
Then, by the Grace of all that's good and plentiful, one of the first things I'm going to do -after hopefully being able to take care of one really major house job (translate "roof"), I'm going to figure out some way to take care of some of the issues of PC performance and maybe, hopefully, add to the G-space (I think that's what it would be called -increasing the number of gigabytes this unit has) and maybe this puppy will last a few more years for me then!
Just so all of the efforts leading up to today and the plans for some repairs I need to get taken care of, want to tend to, don't all end up as a "wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up first" type episode, ya know!
So with that in mind, I'm off to relax by getting my dishes washed up and supper fixed for Mandy, the kids, Carrie and Alex will also be here for supper tonight -so we can then relax a bit more, kick back with some popcorn or cake (pineapple cake with vanilla icing that I made at 11 p.m. last night) and wait to get the news, hopefully next week sometime, as to whether I'm home free or have to look at the aspect of becoming homeless!
Pray for the former to be the one, will ya please?
