John took Friday off so we could have another family day. We had a great time! We went to this bakery(Bruno's gourmet kitchen) that we heard wonderful things about. It was good. We then went to some yard sales. I found some prizes for my Sunday school class. I also found a cute cabinet for my bathroom. As you can see from the pictures of the bathroom I am not done painting it yet. The boys found a tiny pool table. Chris had a lot of fun playing with John. Today we FINISHED fixing the list of items on our old house from the inspection. I am soooo happy about getting it done. Now we have to get the FHA inspection done. It should be no problem passing it. We are not sure when the new date for closing is yet. Our realtor said it would only be slightly delayed. Our original closing date was Sept. 9th. We are definitely feeling much less pressure and stress. Soon when we get money from the sale of the old house we will be able to focus on our new house and get things done in it. Life is good.

We had a great time today. We went to DeLeon Springs and ate breakfast at the Sugar Mill. John and the boys cooked the pancakes while I sat back and watched. We swam for a while. On the way home we stopped at a few thrift stores. I found a light weight blanket for my bed for $1.99. Then for lunch we ate at ElPotro.

We were told yesterday that the buyer for our home is going through a new lender. That means it will take longer to close. At first I was a little upset but it does give us extra time to get things done that are on the inspector's list. Also timing wise we still would have had to make the extra payment with the earlier closing date. I have not heard yet when the closing will be. So, more waiting. Hopefully all this will work out this time. Please pray that we will not get discouraged. The boys got their schedules yesterday. They ended up in the same p.e. class. I thought that was cool. They were excited about it. They will catch the school bus at 5:57 am. That means they will have to get up at 5:00 am. I told them I would drive them in the morning but they want to ride the bus. I got them a few new clothes for school yesterday. It is so nice to not have to buy uniforms. They were so exspensive. I am fortunate too that my boys are easily pleased with clothes. They don't have to have the brand names. I do try to find brand names at thrift stores and Ross. I think we are all set for school. I will take some pictures of them on their first day before they leave for school. Tomorrow John is going to take the day off so we can go to the springs and play. We are very excited about having a family day of fun. Thank you for all your prayers.

I felt like my old self today. I got up early and went and cleaned a house. We are still trying to work through all the house selling stuff. Please continue to pray for us. Tomorrow John , the boys, and his dad will go work on the old house. That means me all alone in this house. It will be nice to get things cleaned up around here without anyone in the way.

I am feeling so much better today. Thank you for your sweet comments. Today Michael is 16 years old. I can't believe how time has flown by. I am so very proud of him. He is turning into a wonderful young man. I will post some birthday pictures later. Tonight we are taking him to Walmart to pick out a bike. I am making him lasagna. Grandpa and grandma will come over later for some cake. It should be a nice evening.

I have been under the weather since Sunday night. My fever broke this morning. Now all I need is for the stomach ache to go away. We got the list of repairs that needs to be done on our old house. The inspector was real tough on us. John got a bunch done last Saturday. On Sunday we also got some done. We have until the 17th to complete the list. John tried to go to the house after work yesterday but ended up be called back to work for some problem. We are a bit overwhelmed. John told me he wished he had gotten sick so he could take a break. Poor guy. I told him let me get better then he can get sick and I will take care of him. I think he is going to try to take a few days off. He really needs to.

I had to have some fun today. The news is so depressing. Life can be depressing. So, the boys and I (including Nathan) made cupcakes and decorated them. While watching Christmas movies. I love Christmas it always puts me in a good mood.We had a great time today. Nathan even put on his Christmas hat! When John and I were first married and having a hard time we would have little Christmas parties. It didn't matter what time of year. We would set up a small tree, listen to Christmas music, and eat snack food. It does put you in a better mood.
