Boy Hair

Today while I was putting on make-up and doing my hair Joshua was in the bathroom with me. When it was time to go feed everyone breakfast I wasn't done yet so I gathered my stuff and took it into the kitchen (the very reason why I always hang a mirror in my kitchen). While we were in the bathroom earlier in the morning Joshua had been casually chatting with me and that continued downstairs into the kitchen. After breakfast was well underway and I had been back at my hair for a few minutes Joshua paused in his current conversation with me and blurted out;

J: "I wish you had boy hair"

Me: "What... "What is boy hair"

J: "Well I am just so tired of having to wait while you do your hair, it takes SOOOO long and just wish you could have hair like a boy." (funny enough he wasn't even waiting on me for something right then... it's probbably pent up baggage ha ha )

M: "You mean short????"

J: "I guess... (pause to think) you know the hair that doesn't take long, like mine!!!!"

I chuckled to myself and almost told him to call his Dad and ask him about his lifetime of waiting for me to do my hair, but I didn't there wasn't enough time for that. He then ended the conversation and moved right a along!!!
He is so cute I love his perspective!!!

We got the house!!! After many back and fourths and (us) walking away once they finally came down and we were able to sign the deal!!! I can't explain in words how excited I am. The house is a total dream, everything I have ever dreamed of plus things I didn't even know existed.

I guess what I am really saying is I feel like the most blessed girl in the world... I have three wonderful children, a fabulous hubby, and many many other family and friends in my life and now a dream house!!! What more can you ask for!!!

P.S. This also means NO MORE MOVES!!!! YEAH!!!!

I had no idea that buying a house took you on such a roller coaster. Just looking at houses was exhausting and sometimes felt like we would never find one. Then we did, and the real fun began... all the back and forth and trying to beat out the other offers. The goal: come in high enough but not to high that we end up paying more than we have to. The whole thing is a game that leaves you in TOTAL UNCERTAINTY most of the time!!! So I sit here this morning totally emotionally frazzled still waiting to hear if we got the house or not. Deep down I know we will end up where we are suppose to so if it isn't this house there is another one, the trick is having enough faith to believe it!!

P.S. Thanks for letting me vent!!!!
