Good news, but......

The Good news first! I close January 5th Finally. Thought I was going to have to kill someone.....LOL Here is my cute little house. It's a 3 bedroom, 1 and 1/2 baths, LR, DR, FR, Eat in Kitchen, with 2 1/2 car garage. Much more than what I have here. I have a full finished attic too! The yard is a nice size. Hard wood floors in all the bedrooms and kitchen (yes!!!) However we have carpet in LR, DR, and family room. The rooms are nice and spacious! We have nice rooms here too, but this is a HOUSE! The kitchen is totally remodeled! Love the HUGE FAMILY ROOM! We decided that I can turn the dining room into my scrapbook room. I was really looking forward to having a 4th bedroom, so that I can turn it into a scraproom, but ds insisted on having his own room, so I would still be in the same boat, didn't work out for us on the 4 bedroom house, but this one is too stinking cute. Can't wait! I get to go in and take measurements, Saturday.....Will take plenty of pics!

Now for the bad news. My landlord needs us out by this Saturday, which means no blogging for me....I have to put my stuff in storage and live with my mom. For a few days..... I love my mom, but she can drive me NUTSO, sometimes!! She is extremely bossy and likes everything her way. If it is one thing out of place, she KNOWS!!! She is a total NEAT FREAK!!! lol So is my dad! This should be fun! There house is like a museum. Doesn't even look like it has been lived in. I am not a junky or nasty person, by any means, but if there is one SPOON in the sink, I don't have a problem with it sitting there until nightime, I always wash dishes before I go to bed. Not my mom, breakfast dinners, after breakfast, lunch after lunch, dinner after dinner, any in between, after the in between. Nothing can sit in her sink!!! Also, she has a had a dishwasher for 17 years and I think she has only used it twice. She likes to wash dishes by hand!!!

She also doesn't like anything to sit on her kitchen tables or any of her table for that matter, but her accent pieces....Please do not ever sit anything on those tables or she will go into Kathy Bates mode...you just may lose a limb.....LOL

Her bathroom, must shine! From the toilet to the floors! She is so particular about her stuff and NO ONE can do it better than she can! She mops the floors and then turns around and windexes them so that they will shine! She does not mop with a mop, she gets on her hands and knees and washes the floor with a towel, each individual ceramic square. NOT ME!!! I aint doing all of that crap......LOL

This should be an adventure, I haven't lived with my mom in almost 10years, this should be fun! LOL

Pray for me guys....LOL
