This & That Post

The biggest pain in my @ss is coming from selling/buying a home. I never knew what the process consisted of and to be honest, it sucks big time. Our house has been on the market about 10 days. As of today we've had 12+ showings and 3 of them are second showings on the house. Mother nature decided to show us the freaking flood that Noah obviously experienced. Our yard has basically been under water for two weeks now. We were able to get the camper out from the side of shop last night for Memorial weekend because the yard had dried up enough. Then like clock work a huge rain storm is moving in now and our yard will be underwater for the 5:00 pm showing today. I know that I can't change anything and the right buyer will come along and love our house regardless of Lake Rapp, but its been stressful. We are constantly hiding cats in rv, cleaning house, hiding baby toys daily, cleaning off counter tops etc. only to come home and get it back out. People have shown up at our house unexpected because of miscommunication with realtor and we are not getting 24 hour notice like we asked for. I can't tell a potential buyer no they can't look at the house though. Please let this house sell quickly and please let us find a new home quickly.... Mother nature please take your damn flood to states that are in a drought and could use 14 inches of rain in less that three weeks.

The girls are doing fantastic!  Olivia did get a double ear infection last week, but I consider us pretty fortunate that this was her first and they are almost 9 months old. She was so upset and not sleeping well for days leading up to her fever ( that should have been an indication), instead I thought she was teething. After being on antibiotics she is all better and back to her normal crazy self. I also took Lilah and had him check her so we didn't need to go back in a few days. I found out with twins, when one is sick, take the other also.
Olivia is weighing 13lbs 2 oz
Lilah is weighing 11lbs 4 oz 
My little peanuts are growing!

We also had their 8 month pictures done and the girls did such an amazing job!

Cierra is graduating on Friday and starting college in the fall. What happened to my first born daughter, where did time go??

  1. Although I don't live in the part of Texas where it's flooding we have had rain constantly also. I sure hope it clears up for you soon!!! It's draining to have not sun as well. Your babies are precious!! My step-son, who lives with us, graduates next year and we'll have a young baby as well..crazy!!

  2. I hope your house sells quickly! I dread the stress of waiting for it to sell, especially with kids! The girls looks awesome! So cute!

  3. Hopefully so much interest in your house means you'll sell fast the girls are getting so big and are such cuties!

  4. That's great that you are getting second showings! You must be doing something right for those people to want to take a second look. I know all too well the stress of selling a house with two little ones, and we only got a two hour notice!

    The girls are adorable!

  5. T, they are adorable!!! So glad they are thriving!

    May the house sell very quickly.

  6. Selling a house with a dog/two dogs was stressful. I have no idea how you do it with two babies!

    The picture of the two of them at the end of the post is hilarious!
