Yes I canz!!!!

What a ride. Our first bid was beat out by another, but they couldn't secure the financing. Our second bid was rejected and I didn't think I could go any higher. Third try, with a little finacial juggling, was successful!

June 10th is the closing date. So much to do! JX started packing his lego last night. JA wanted to spend the night there and not at home. I think they are excited about the move!

Brings back all those warm and fuzzy feelings. *hugs the world*

Found this one on xinef 's LJ.

March, 2011: Separated, living with my husband (in legal name only?) and two sons in a three bedroom farmhouse. Two cats and three dogs.

March, 2001: Married, living with my husband in a 600sq ft semi-detached house. One cat and two dogs.

March, 1991: Single, living with my parents and sister in a three bedroom farmhouse in Opsringe, ON. Three cats, three dogs, and assorted poultry.

March, 1981: Single, living with my parents and sister in a three bedroom house in Guelph, ON. One cat and one dog.

Funny, if this had asked for 1998 there would have been 6 dogs!

I'm making a wish list- or a to do list- or a dreams list.   Not sure what to call it!    

I'm making a list!   (and adding items as they come to me)

I will get myself a KICK-ASS stereo system.   One that can handle symphonies being played at very loud volumes.  And then I will play music ALL THE TIME!

I will get myself an aquarium and fill it with fish!  (it was supposed to be my wedding present ... )

I will let the boys eat ice cream for dinner, and wiggle in their chairs, and make burping and farting noises.

I will take yearly vacations, one with the boys, and one without.   Time to travel!

I will reconnect with the internet.  And my internet friends.  I'm sorry I left you.

I will learn not to give things/interests/friends up for someone else.

I will daydream.

I will be my own better half.

I will talk to those who WANT to listen.

I will do whatever I feel like in the evenings, instead of what I think I should do.   

I will read the boys a story EVERY night, even if it's past their bedtime.

I will start enjoying my cross stitch again, instead of treating it like another chore.  That means, if I feel like starting a new piece every night for a month, I will!

I will continue to run and exercise FOR ME!  It feels good to be in shape and healthy.  I will no longer answer any questions about my weight.  EVER.   (unless it's a medical type reason)

I will start hiking in the woods again.

I will cut my hair short, or let it grow long, as the mood strikes me.

I will get a phoenix tattoo.

I will buy myself a ring.

I will clean the house, or not, as I please.

I will wear makeup, or not, for me.

I will decide what's for dinner.

I will play the piano.

I will achieve financial independence.  

I will find a way to make it all happen.
