We wish the weekends were longer

We had a very busy weekend, productive, but busy! We cleaned the house (Jacks favorite) and the cars, had the oil changed in Bills car, took my car rental back and went to the Pirate Festival on Saturday (with dinner afterwards). On Sunday, we had a meeting with the Realtor about the house and ran our usual Sunday errands. Bill usually grills at least one weekend day, and today was the day. The dogs finally got baths too.

The Realtor visit was interesting. Apparently, if the owner sells the house to us, he will not have to pay realtor fees, which would save him money. Seems the visit today was more of a selling push than anything else. I know what he bought the house for in 2000, and he wants way more than it is worth (in my opinion). With that said, we won't shut the door yet on buying it - but it doesn't look favorable.

Tomorrow Jack goes back to school, although he has asked a couple times to "go ms Donna's house" this weekend. Hopefully, tomorrow morning will go smoothly when he realizes he is going to school instead.

Jackson and I will go to Missouri next month to see my family. He is looking forward to going on a plane again. The older he gets, the less he is able to sit down for more than 2 minutes, so the plane ride (including a layover in Chicago) should be interesting. My Dad had a horse fall on him a couple weeks ago and it hurt his leg. When we talk about Grandpa Tony, Jackson says "leg hurt". Of course, Bills dad (AKA Papa) had surgery a couple of months ago as well, so when we talk about Papa, Jackson says "tummy cut - cut".

Speaking of surgery, Jackson is going to have to have his eye surgery repeated in August. We have been going to the Opthamologist every 3 months since his surgery in Dec 09, and his eyes are slowly worsening. We knew there was a good chance he would have to get the surgery repeated, it just breaks our hearts. Hopefully the 2nd time around will remedy the issue completely. At least he will not have to wear the eye patch this time around.


  1. What a lovely family! Michelle, your posts warm my heart.
    Keep us updated on the surgery. And have fun on vacation!
    Bless you...

  2. Ok, when is the layover in Chicago? We have to get together if you have a few hours here!
