Went up to NJ last week to do some modifications to the house so it would sell! We primed the whole downstairs!, did a couple of little plumbing leaks and were just about to order the carpeting when the realtor called and said. 'Stop what you are doing- we sold the house! , the new owners are gonna redo the whole downstairs so we didn't have to do another brush stroke!' I was so happy it sold and promptly penned the contract- almost what I was asking, BUT we bought the paint & painted for 2 days. All the taping done, light fixtures down etc. My nephew and friend were helping so I paid them plus the costs of all we purchased. Owell its just money, time and energy, And like I said I ain't what I used to be! Bottom line it sold!
Now pray that what happened the last time doesn't happen again! They wanted to settle right away-July 31st, but because of NJ law the water tests must be in so are settling Aug 10th.
The ole knee is killing me, but I guess I'm no worse than I used to be!?
I swear there are more mosquito's in NJ than anywhere else. I have more bites on me than I have had in ages! Itch, itch, itch! Yikes, but dau #2 has found something great for it Ivarest, has calamine & benedryl & something else in it. Works good, now if I could just find it today. We packed up yesterday and drove down to MD and haven't gotten all the stuff unpacked as of yet. Dau #2 had to work last eve & I had to take the kiddos to their dads, AND today is supposed to be a day of rest. Mind ya I have done 2 loads of laundry and hung them out. However, I did really sleep in for me. Actually got up early went for lite breakfast with the dau before she had to do visits. Was on the computer and found myself nodding off so went back to bed. Was awakened to the rapping of the door. Was the new neighbor who wanted to chat! I don't even live here, but she spoke on, couldn't she see I was almost asleep!
Tomorrow is another day, have to drive to get one of the kiddos at their dads-he is invited to his first birthday party-he cant miss that! Whats a granny to do? Mom is working again!
