I am blessed not only with many quilting buddies, but buddies of all different walks of life who have strengthened and broadened mine! To those I cherish with Jewish roots and traditions, I want to wish you a blessed Hanukkah!
I admit I have a hard time tracking when Jewish holidays are as they "float" *LOL* But then so does Easter and if it doesn't show up on a calendar, I can't tell you when it is either. So this is coming to you mid-way through the 8 days, but hopefully plenty of time left for me not to be too late!
I am listening to XM radio, and did you know they have a Hanukkah channel!? I am enjoying listening to it so much, even if I can't understand a word sung in Hebrew...it is so fun to listen to. For those with XM, it's channel 108.
Today we are heading out for the house hunting trip in Winston Salem. I feel really headache-y this morning and I didn't sleep well last night. I don't know if it is stress or what? The house has to be in "showing shape" when we leave this afternoon in case it will be shown this weekend.
I spent last night packing up books and extra knick-knacks trying to get realtor approval I guess. But sheesh. I really am not all that cluttered except in the quilting room. And that's to be expected.
It IS helping me go through things and weed out and toss out. This can only be a good thing, right? But still...I woke up today with a headache :c|
I plan on bringing the camera..and thought I could turn this into a feature of "the best and worst of house hunting" by photos! You want to see the absolute ugliest we were shown?? You'll get it! (maybe it won't be that bad) and the best? You'll get it.
The worst part is being married to a very tight wad accountant! If we sell this house close to what the realtor says we should sell it for..we stand to make some money on it. But DH wants to find something cheaper than what we paid for this house....?? I think we should stay around the same price range, same size range...and he is pinching pennies? Sometimes I think if he had his way we'd still be in that single-wide trailer we lived in for 10 years paying $235 a month! I look at property as an investment...he looks at it as an expense. Two different sides of the spectrum.
So hopefully in the middle we can find balance.
