Pretty Flowers

Thanks to my mommy for my very pretty flowers she brought over today. I may have sounded slightly panicked when I called to let her know we were going to have our first official showing today. She postponed her Eugene trip a few hours just to come help us get ready. :) Thanks Dad and Mom your the best. Please pray for us as we go through this process of house selling and hopefully house looking. :)

Here are a few fun pics of the house today and our awesome yard sign. :)

Mark is on the way over now to look at the house. I am pretty happy with what I was able to get done. :) Now I just need to keep it clean if possible and start the garage cleaning project. I feel as if a new step in our lives is finally being taken. I have no idea how long this house will take to sell but I feel content knowing we are finally doing something we should have done long ago. Trusting in God right now to show us what we need to do and when we need to do it. Trust in the Lord with all of Your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

Cleaning for real

So I have 1 day left now. Today yikes. :) I spent yesterday cleaning the 2 smallest rooms in the house and yet it took me longer than I expect the rest of the rooms to take together. Anyone that knows me knows my laundry room is off limits and beyond dirty pretty much all the time. So here are some before and after pics for your viewing horror. Thanks Wyrd for the dice rolling and kicking me off the game, Thanks Ragudantalus for playing my turns so I wouldn't be distracted by them. :)

It's official

We have a realtor coming to our house this Thursday. Yes an actual realtor to help us sell this place. Yikes I am so nervous and slightly nauseated at the prospect. Trying to trust in God and not myself since I am so unreliable.
So I am on a 4 day countdown to get my house in some semblance of order and cleanliness.

Pray for me.

My veggie bed this year

My garden bed from the strawberry side
From the tomato side. :)
I love planting fruits and veggies. Actually I just like plants.

Impromptu Coast Trip

The awesome old cart as my kids called it. I told them not to be so loud about it because these are the only carts they have at this Safeway on the coast. :) Of course then I proceeded to take pictures and get very odd looks sent my way. Funny what things our kids think are antiques. I loved these carts as a kid. Just back it up to the register open it up and slide the groceries out. So cool!
My handsome Man

Burying Haven. :) Thats a lot of belly to bury. Hehehe

Race to mommy
Digging in the sand with our awesome WalMart toys we grabbed at the super Walmart on the coast.
Cherry faced.
Notice the radical sweatshirts all the kids are wearing. We spur of the moment headed to the coast Sunda morning, we were dressed for the hot weather expected here on Sunday. Thus we stopped at the Goodwill on the coast and aquired these awesome jackets/ sweatshirts. We had fun though and stayed way cooler than if we had stayed home. :)
