A Yard Sale, A Trip To The ER and A House Update

Phew, day one of the Memorial Day weekend was exhausting!! 

Kristin, Heather and I had a yard sale at Heather's house.  I have to say - we had a good set-up!  Heather has a great yard and we had a pretty consistent flow of people stopping in to check out our stuff. I had more fun hanging out with the girls than anything else...but selling stuff was pretty fun too.  :-)  We all have enough left (and I know we'll accumulate more!), that I think I'll host the next yard sale!

The single cruddy thing about the yard sale?  A woman who spent over an hour poking and prodding everything managed to somehow steal the web cam I was selling!!  How rude!  It was priced cheap...just buy the darn thing!


Kristin and I moved along to visit Grandma after the yard sale.  We got there right in time to call 911.  She wasn't breathing quite right and was complaining of chest and leg pain - primarily on her left side.  Poor thing had only been out of the hospital about 24 hours from her last episode of chest pain.  At 87 years old - I think we all expect that she have some problems.  But I feel so bad for her!  She's been in the hospital three times in the last month!  Knock on wood the doctors figure out how to really help her this time.


To end on a bright note - my house update!  Things are moving right along.  YAY!!  I had the home inspection last Sunday and it went pretty well.  There are definitely things that will need to be addressed...but no home is absolutely perfect, and most have a list of repairs to be made.

Thursday morning I applied for my home loan.  And think I killed a few trees in the process.  I know, I know.  If I want dead trees, wait until closing!  Friday morning, my fabulous real estate agent's hubby came all the way to my place of work so I could sign the P&S.  What a great guy.  :-)

All that's left now is waiting!  Waiting for the loan to be approved; the seller's bank to approve the short sale; wait for my closing date.


  1. Sure you had an interesting day!
    Sorry about Grandma. I hope she feels better soon.
    And so bad about the web camera!
    I hope everything goes well with your house!
    Happy Sunday!

  2. My goodness, you better just rest for the remainder of the weekend. I sure hope they are able to take care of your gramma this time around. How is your mom doing?

  3. I am so sorry about your grandma....I hope they can figure out what it is :(

    Take care and happy all is well with the new house!!

    Licks from me!!


  4. That's great about the house! Um....who steals at a yard sale?!?!? That's crazy!

  5. Who steals something from a yard sale??? That is crazy. People make me wonder sometimes. Geesh. Sorry to hear about your grandma but hopefully the doctors can finally figure out what is wrong and fix it once and for all. I'll keep her in my thoughts and prayers. Thank goodness you got there when you did.

    Great news about the progress you've made in buying a house! That is so exciting. :)
