Back to the regularly scheduled program

I'm back from Oklahoma and ready to get started on catching up with this blogging thing. We are looking to move pretty soon so I may skip a day or two here and there. I hate packing but this time I know it will be for a good cause so I will only complain this one time.

I'm slowly trying to learn all about Search Engine Optimization for my website. I've got so many things going at once I will probably soon be diagnosed with Adult ADD. I am one of those people that has to have something going all the time or I get restless.

I need to start looking for boxes to pack up the house. What's funny is that Wal-Mart boxes are recycled, they won't just give them to me or I can't just go picking them out of the trash. I've tried this and only to find them all torn down and packed tightly on a pallet, ready for the recycling truck to get them. Far away from me. So, box-hunting at the Wally World is out of the question. It seems that every time I look for boxes for this very reason they are nowhere to be found.

As soon as I find out which house we are getting I will post some pictures on here. I liked the one on 5 1/2 acres. It is in a peaceful country setting and has beautiful flower gardens, a small vegetable garden, a pond and there is a creek that runs through the property. Now, we will have to wait and see. Oh, the best part is that their electric bill is only 75 bucks a month!! Compare that to our $450 electric bill here where we currently live. Property taxes are one third of what we currently pay. Insurance will cost less as well.

Now, I just have to get my loan officer to get everything ready and see what happens. We are basically giving our house away. My hubby is asking one of his friends from work to see if they want to assume the loan. They are in desperate need of a home for their family. They don't have to give us any money, my husband says. As long as they are assuming the loan, we know our house will go to someone that really needs it. It's only money and I would be more than happy to let them have the house. They are good people.

I am glad all went well in Oklahoma!

When you have so much to do make sure to breathe. Take a few minutes out and just breathe deeply. You will get it all accomplished.

I am sure if your plans regarding your current house work out that it will be a real blessing to that family.

I am glad you are back to blogging! I have missed Rico Silver's take on things!
