Home Again

EbonyMommy ©2006

We’ve returned from Texas- successful and not so successful in other ways. We signed a contract for a lovely house to be built. Picked our lot and were all ready to go and now that we’re here back in Georgia found out that not only is a huge lighted athletic facility (read HUGE blinding stadium lights) being built across the street, the house could not fit on the lot we picked. That lot was the only one not directly facing the local water tower so we were suddenly back to the drawing board.

Thankfully on our last day in Dallas we met with a realtor that EbonyDad had run into on a previous trip. She was great and found out that there was one builder that actually had gorgeous homes available in the community we thought we were outpriced from. So after talking details and options- it looks like we are going to get an even nicer home in a great community (we aren’t in the million dollar home neighborhood but they are right next door :) ). The above picture is one of the model homes we were looking at. I wish I had gotten some pics of the actual houses we were viewing by the builder we’re going to use but I’m sure I’ll have some in the future. Oh and you California people (*hint*hint* you know who you are) there are Cali folx moving in droves to Dallas because the above house is so affordable they can easily sell a California house and buy a huge gorgeous home plus an investment property.

EBaby and I both got a lovely case of Texas allergies. We were out for the count most of the way back to Georgia (I apologize to anyone in the Dallas Fort Worth or Atlanta airports we may have sneezed or cough on) and I’m now finally feeling better. The most shocking news of all is I made it in to the gym today for the first time since I left. I took the entire 10 days off- didn’t eat the way I knew I should and didn’t get any real exercise, and somehow this beautiful, magnificent gym scale said I lost 3 pounds!!! I still can’t believe it but I’m going to take it for what its worth and get right back on the health trail.

EBoy had a complete reversion in his potty training (poop, poop why have thou forsaken us!) but returning home seems to have things back on track. I’m hoping and praying that being home will have things back to normal.

Now to start prepping for the garage sale and final decluttering. If you have garage sale tips please bring them on!

*gasp* what a gorgeous home. I think I’d give my right arm for a house like that. thats funny the same thing is happening here in terms of californians moving in droves because it’s “cheap” to them. It’s so good to see you post again! I hope all goes well the the move and stuff :)

That is an AMAZING house! That house here would be in the high million to two million range! I didn’t realize just how out of whack our real estate market was! We need to move! LOL :)

I’m glad you had a good trip! I missed you on your blog. :)

That is, perhaps, one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen. I’m glad it’s all working out so well for you!

Holy Moly that house is BEAUTIFUL!

I’m catching up on your blog today. I can’t imagine not craving bread. Maybe I should do that program, too?
