What’s up…

* Kelsie and Kameron ran into each other on bikes, fell down and she is scrapped up…she loves to tell everyone her brother did it!
* Erin and David found a {{popup erinhouse.gif erinhouse 550×367}}house in Kris’s neighborhood they hope they can buy…good luck and keep us posted.
* Beth’s new boyfriend {{popup bethbo.gif bethbo 550×413}}Chris, cute!
* Looking for a good cookbook on sustainability and simple recipes, try {{popup waters.gif waters 189×240}}Alice Waters, the book is great!
* The one thing I love most about summer- I have some time to read and am currently reading {{popup anderson.gif anderson 148×215}}Joan Anderson and “The Second Journey”. She wrote a trilogy before and this is a followup after 10 years. Easy read.
* I am also listening to a book called {{popup veg.jpg veg 240×240}}Animal, Vegetable, Miracle which is about a journalistic investigation that tells the story of how one family was changed by one year of deliberately eating food produced in the place where they live. This is very interesting and not why we belong to our local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) but makes me feel better that I eat local food. Healthier, better for the local economy, saves on fuel consumption and makes more sense.
* Our CSA is provided through Hen House and we have been able to try many different vegetables, tofu, products and some of the best tasting meats, eggs and milk. It is because it is all fresh and I love it.
* Yesterday I cleaned my house- top to bottom, scrub, dust clean…feels good. Haven’t made it to the garage yet but I will!
* Renewed my Fliker Pro account so we have space for pictures (hint,hint).
* What’s up with you?

    I’m sorry to hear that the little bib is scratched up… she’s a tough girl though! Too funny that she blames her brother… it’s okay Kam. Wish I could be there to see some of his games and some of Laney’s recitals! Kate, I’m sorry to hear that you and Shawn broke-up. That really stinks. Keep your chin up and ya never know what can happen. Congrats Sarah! I am planning to come home for your party so I will give you a big hug then!

    Well, we stayed up until 2 a.m. reading paperwork and signing our offer. It gets submitted today and we are going as quickly as we can b/c it is a forclosure. We should know by Monday if our offer sticks. We will be getting a home inspection and hope that everything comes back okay, as we already know it needs new HVAC. The house is not in bad shape, but it does need a lot of work. We are excited and look forward to the adventure. We’re getting a much bigger house for the money and we think it is a good investment. They lowered the asking price from $196,000 to $189,000 so our realtor put it that we will pay the $189,000 if they will pay 6% consessions for closing and our downpayment so we can use all of our immediate money to do necessary renovations. This should bring our mortgage with taxes and insurance under $180,000 which we are happy about. It’s approx. 2500 square feet so there is plenty of room to grow into and we hope it can be our forever house instead of having to upgrade (which we would have had to do in the other one liked). And the best part is that it is in Kris’s development right down the road, so I can be there for the girls if they need anything… not to mention Kris and I can have some rockin’ get togethers from time to time (do I hear Mojitos?) and we can walk home! LOL! This has been very exciting for us and we are learning so much. I can’t wait to get in and get dirty (needs major cleaning, popcorn ceilings scrapped, and painting throughout). I never thought I would look forward to all that, but I am. I guess when you put more work into a house, you really feel like it is yours. I hope we can make this happen. If anything else comes back in the home inspection, we will probably walk away though.

    Just going around seeing Grandkids. Thank God I have them in my life. Sunday, Sue, Kelsie, Katie and I went to Rochester to see Lulu dance. She was so good! She and Kels had a great time in the pool. Tuesday Kam had a playoff game. They won 15-2. He played shortstop and had a double play. So cool. Also hit a very hard line drive to right center field and had a double play. He played a good game. I hope he has a good one tonight. I went to Sarah’s graduation from BOCES last night. It was a nice event. She looked so pretty. Kate and Shawn broke up. I feel like I lost a piece of the family. He is a pretty good kid. I hope she always finds guys that are as nice as him. Kim and I are going back down to Syracuse for more shopping. What an adventure. This time we are taking a truck from DiSanto Jet Gas. God bless Leonard. Erin’s house looks like a nice one. I hope it all goes well. The boyfriend looks good and by golly, he better be good. That’s all from this old crow. Love to all, Mom
