J and I put a bid in on a house, it was accepted ( yikes), and then the loan we thought we could get from a family member for the down payment fell through. So, we have spent countless hours and many many tears on my part realizing that although we " could" buy this cute house it would mean living a life style that would not be healthy for The Shmoo. In desperation I turned to my current employer to see if they could help us out by allowing us to rent a house from them...lots of hemming and hawing later they say " we're not sure...we'll know more in a month". A MONTH? Did I mention that we will lose our housing in 3 months? That we have a 2 year old son who needs a roof over his head?
Well, as I said: Life happens. The Shmoo and I will be heading to North Carolina on Sunday to visit my mom, and hopefully gain a bit of perspective on this mess of a situation. I need some space between me and the school, and no where is better than home with my mom! Let's just hope they have some sunshine, cause I am so over the snow!!!
On a crafting note I have been working on the Amy Butler " Weekender Bag", and all I have to say is---I will try anything once!!!!! Never, Never again!
I wish you all well, and I hope to post a photo of the complete bag on Friday. Peace be with you.
