My gosh...I'm a slacker!! LOL

When it comes to blogging, that is! ;) I have seriously been SO busy that I don't even know how I'm going to keep up with it all. Here is what life has coming up for us...

-Still trying to get projects done around the house to get it up for sale. We're hoping to get the sign out this weekend and a blog up and running for it too. Keep your fingers crossed that it's a QUICK sale!!

-Trying to figure out where we stand on building a house. Of all comes down to money and what we can afford. (Doesn't everything in life?!?!?) We're getting a piece of property tested to see if we are able to put in a sandmound since it doesn't attach to the main sewage line. We also started looking at modular houses since building from scratch isn't in our budget. I was amazed when I started looking at these!!! I had a stereotype in my head of what they were going to look like and I was SO wrong! They are gorgeous!! We found a model that we just love. Big, open floorplan and we would have a HUGE basement to finish too! YAY! Now to only figure out the other specifics....

-On top of the projects at home, we've been packing/moving furniture/de-cluttering the house to make it more "showable" to people. We rented a storage facility and have been making trips there. TONS of work!

-Parties/Baptisms/Bridal Shower...all parties that we had/have to go to in the month of May/June. Ugh...

-Ava's bday is June 2nd. Still haven't written thank you notes from Christian's party. Still haven't posted pics for you of it... Our 6th anniversary is on June 1st.

-Wedding in the Outer Banks, NC in a few weeks. (10 hour drive for us) Jarrett is the best man and it is for his best friend, Jason. It's a small wedding and is an adult reception only. poor kiddos are being left here while we go!! :( I am totally bummed about it and don't want to leave them to go. We're leaving on Thursday afternoon and coming home on Monday evening. (yes...we are driving the 10 hours!!!)

-Silent Auction at my church June 9th. SO much planning and stuff left to do for it. I'm in charge of the whole thing (of course) and I don't know how it's all gonna get done.

-150th anniversary for my church. Activities all year long for this and I'm a co-chairperson. Starting in May/June we are going to sell engraved bricks to make a cute little patio.

Not to mention, my CT work, designing, etc...

UGH....I am losing my mind!! I am tired, both physically and mentally, 24 hours a day. I honestly don't know how I'm going to make it through the next few months. Jarrett & I are both irritable with everyone and everything. (more me though, of course...) I just hope that things go well and fall into place quickly. I don't want to drag this all on forever, KWIM? Please say a little prayer that it all comes together and that we have a quick sale on the house.

That being said....SALE!!!
