Monday Morning Mumblings....

Thanks to everyone for the emails and ecards and all the other Easter messages. HB and I had a quiet day. He worked on some little outside projects and I puttered around in the house. Later I baked a ham for him, did scalloped potatoes, and fresh green beans with chayote, mushrooms, and ginger. I ate the green beans and some tofu!

I did manage to finally do something creative! I drew something in my sketchbook and used colored pencils to finish it. This is for a young girl I know.



I'm sure some of you are wondering about the house we made an offer on....it's a no go again!! We made the offer, they countered, and we countered again. Then we withdrew the offer because finally, after asking numerous times for the disclosure statement, they faxed it to us. Now keep in mind we first asked for it before the offer was made! When we read it our enthusiasm for this house fell away quickly. It stated that the basement got water when it stormed. We were planning to use the basement for more than just a basement!

This is so frustrating because the realtor we were working with could have saved herself a lot of unnecessary time by simply sending us the disclosure statement when we initially requested it. But instead she drove 45 minutes one way to take photos and measurements for us, had her weekend interrupted several times, and ended up losing the deal. AACKKKK!!!

So we're back at square one.

I'll leave you with a little quiz thingie I got from DebR.

You Are 6: The Loyalist

You have strong relationships and are intensely loyal.

People find you easy to love and care for.

You like your world to be stable and secure, no surprises.

You're cautious. You prefer your inner circle to the outside world.
