busy with stuff...

Josh got home last night around dinner time. He ended up staying the night with his cousins after Silver Dollar City and swimming. It is just as well, I have had my nose in my books trying to prepare for the praxis which I take on Saturday.
Karl and his dad have been doing the repairs to our house. There are just a couple of things that we felt like had to be fixed before we tried to sell it and actually the rest of the house is in good shape. The houses we have looked at are in need of help. That sort of irritates me. We are spending time on trying to get our house move in ready and the other houses need to be fixed up. Karl did find a house, but it is in Springfield. It is wonderful though. We may have to go look at it. It would have easy access to the road for us to get to work and it wouldn't be that far. The school district is one of the best in Springfield according to different girls I have talked to at the university. We really want to stay here so Josh can go to a smaller school, but who knows.
So, I was all set to blog yesterday and was even at Kat's blog and read it, but my phone rang. I am going to try it again today. Once the phone rings it seems I am busy the rest of the day. I hope you are having a wonderful week. It is hot and sunny here near 100 degrees. The farmers are having a hard time...the ponds are drying up and the hay is not growing as much as thhey would like. This will make for a hard winter feeding the animals. I just wish it would rain and cool off some. Take care. I will be by soon...she keeps saying and meaning it.

Hi Lori,
A couple hundred years ago, there were a set of twin boys that went to the University of Dayton with my hubby. Those boys were from Springfield and their dad had a big lumber yard there. Springfield's the capital of Missouri right?

Just thought I'd mention it. Have a happy week, sweetie. Hugz!!

Hi Lori;

The weather is the same here and just as hot and humid at night. The weather all year has been extreme. I'm hoping we'll have a normal nice rest of the year but I doubt it.

I hope the house you are going to look at is the one especially that the school district is a good one.

Have a lovely day ahead my friend. ;-}

Hey girlie, just hopping in to say hi.

Sounds like summer is going well with you all, Josh getting to spend time with cousins and you and Karl doing what you have too. :) I guess I didn't realize you were trying/or going to try to sell you house. Didn't know you wanted to move. I know about working on a house so that you can sell it. And when I look at houses now, I don't want to have to go in and start again, but since we have had a "lag" in time with renting, It might not be so bad now.

Good luck!

Try to stay cool.
Hugs,
Me
