Excellently Exciting!!

I was gonna wait, till I finished all my posts, but I can’t, I’m too excited!

I just moved!  {We know, Melinda, you just moved into “MY First Place All on My Own” 6 months ago.  So what’s news about that???

No, I mean I JUST MOVED!!  AGAIN!!  YESTERDAY!!

WHAT????

Yup!  I was bustin outta the seams of My First Place, what with ALL MY stuff, and ALL PP’s stuff, and then we have PP Jr. set to arrive in April…

And you know babies come with their own HOUSEFUL of stuff!

So…..  I decided on Saturday, 11/21/15 that I needed to move.  The next day, {Sunday the 22nd, for those of you like me who are calendar challenged}

I drove 1 street over, where I knew I had seen a for sale sign.  AS I was writing down the number, I hear a “HEY!”  I looked across the street, to see a woman motioning to me.  

“Are you looking to buy a place?”  Um, that would be why I’m writing down this phone number, yes….  Fortunately, I was able to keep that thought internal.   Go me!

I responded, “Yes.”   She said “I’m selling mine!”   How many bedrooms?

Two.   My ears and eyes perk up!   How much?   “$1,000.00.”    

Eeerch!!   You’ve never seen anybody drive across a street so fast!!

We sat down, after looking it over and made a deal!   Wednesday, when my expected check arrived, I RAN to the bank to cash it, and RAN back to give her the money!  She signed the title, and away I went to the tag office.   She forgot to sign the front, so I called her.  Thankfully, she was driving right by, so she stopped in and signed it.

Now I’m the proud owner of TWO homes!!  I never imagined in my whole life that I would be rich enough to own 2 homes!!  I better enjoy this  week, it won’t ever happen again!   I’m showing it tomorrow, and praying someone buys it before the first, when the rent is due!  {which is Tuesday, tomorrow!! for those of us who are calendar challenged.}

I don’t even have a picture, cuz I was so excited.  Why aren’t you surprised by that???  Gale_HenryUpdate:    I didn’t sell it for THREE months!!!    Yeah, so that was $1,000.00  in rent on an empty place.    😦    And I was only asking $1200!     So, I got desperate, and ended up selling it for just $10.00,  (YES!  TEN)  just to get it outta my name!!     The guy couldn’t hand me that Hamilton fast enough!!    And I’ll have that #1,100 loan paid off by June September 2017.     All’s well that ends well…

Library Loser

I lose books.

Yes, I read about more than chicken!

Yes, I read about more than chicken!

“Hi, my name is Melinda, and I’m a library loser.”

 

I lose my mind.

 

I lose money.  (Which is more important, my mind or my money?  Well, very little of either is left to squabble over.)

My fees were 42 big ones!!

My fees were 42 big ones!!

Yes, I’ve had to pay for a few several lost books.  And a few many, many, too many fines!  My latest one for the long time span of 3 months was: $42!!!

$42 is a steep membership fee for a supposedly free activity.

I lose motivation to go read “free” books, and magazines that end up costing me an arm and a leg!

There goes 1 arm...

There goes 1 arm...

There goes the leg...

There goes the leg…

What’s a loser, like me, to do????

Lose the Library, I guess.  😦

Aha!  Use the Library as a walk-in activity only!  No lending for me!

Later, losers!

Oopsie, Did I Just Declutter?

Sunday, I accidentally decluttered a pair of purple shorts.  (No, not Daisy Dukes! Just shorts, not that short.)

Let me tell you the tale.

Grandmama came over to visit after church.  She changed PP’s diaper, but as sometimes happens,  didn’t get the new one in place in time.  Yucky!

Obviously, not the real PP!!! 🙂

The upshot was someone had a soaking wet skirt  Not wanting to go home like that, Grandmama borrowed the purple shorts.  I told her not to bring them back, because I never really wear them, due to the fact that they’re, well, short.  (I wear capris or long pants, because nobody wants to see my knees!  Including me!)

Topic 2

Yesterday and today, I only mopped right in front of the recliner, and high chair.  Bad me, I know.  But some is better than none. 

PP has decided to change her schedule  to include 2 hours of fun time between 2 and 4 am.

(Fun for her, for me, not so much.)  So, losing sleep like that, puts a damper on my motivation.  Excuse, I know, but it’s all I got right now.

But time and motivation for blogging?  Got that  by the ton!!    Funny how that works!
