Holding Pattern

On Tuesday night, we received another full-price offer on our house. The inspection is scheduled for tomorrow at 1pm. I am hoping and praying for a good inspection, and an end to this insane rollercoaster-ride.

Life has been on hold in a lot of ways here. Isabella's birthday (and big family party) is a week from Saturday. Her party with a few of her friends is this Saturday, and I've done very little to prepare. She's requested a Clifford birthday party, and I could not find Clifford decorations anywhere. Fortunately, I have an artist mother with a lot of time on her hands who is making most of the decorations from scratch, and a fabulous friend in Lisanne who sent me a list of food, games, and other party ideas that she used for her son's dog-themed birthday party. She even researched Clifford theme ideas for me too.

I've also started training for a new job teaching English and Communications classes online, which is occupying a lot of my time. Ultimately, it's a good thing and I'm excited about the prospect of bringing in a steady source of income.

I've been so busy, I haven't had much time at all to catch up on your blogs. I hate being out-of-touch with what's going on in your lives. Please be patient with me, as I lobby for a 36-hour-day. I'm hopeful that things will return to some semblance of normalcy soon.

    I'm crossing my fingers for you and wishing for only good news from now on. Looking forward to the par-tay!

    Hope everything works out for the best. You'll have to tell more about the job when you have a chance.

    I know Isabella's birthday parties will be wonderful. Remember, three year olds are easy to please.

    PS--I'm against the 36 hour day--I have a feeling moms wouldn't get to sleep any longer than we do now. :-)

    Is there anything else that I can do for you? (Thanks for the mention ~ you are so sweet!) Let me know. Meredith has decided that she wants a turtle birthday party. :)

    I'm crossing my fingers for you. I hope the inspection goes well and the deal is done.

    I'm still on a holding pattern. No news.

    Love the idea of you teaching -- and online courses are so convenient.

    Good luck tomorrow!
