Thank you to all of you very special ladies who have been so very thoughtful to send all the letters, cards, and stress realiving novelties that make me laugh and really help to keep my spirits lifted!  I can't tell you how special you all are to think of me...and be my support!  It's so good to know you have people who really care about you - you all have really helped me get through all the feelings of "did we do the right thing" You have all helped me so much.  Thank you!  Love ya! Big HUGS!

So what's going these days?  So glad you asked...hehhehe

We still have not formally heard that we have got the house from the BANK yet!!!! ( "SHORT SALE")...............We have seen a "OFF THE MARKET" notation when you search for it on-line ----but we have not been told that we are under contracted yet!!!!!
Yesterday we went to the house and spent the entire day there---My hubby was measuring for carpets and windows - also assessing all the additional expenditures we will encore once we take ownership......remember this is the house that we will need to do some work on it before we actually move in.  Then we will update the kitchen and all three (3) bathrooms, add new floors, and finish custom closets, and new counter tops.

I have a a before video - but I can't upload it with my hubby's laptop so I will,,,as soon as I am able.  I also have some other vids I want to upload but they will have to wait.

So once we get the house,,,, we will still live in the RV for another month or so..... till we do all the repairs to the floors,  KITCHEN, & Bathrooms,,,,, so that we can at least function while all the other upgrading is being done......

Remember we are going to "FLIP" this house so it's not the Dream home yet!!!! 

We still will need to paint all the rooms and update all the fixtures...This house has a basement so we will also need to finish the basement,,,,,re-do the stairs, carpet, installation, drywall, paint, cabinets, etc.

The cool thing (to be) craft room  has a cool little closet,,,, and it's own bathroom with a very cute little enclosed shelf ---that is screaming for all my painting goodies to jump in and make themselves comfy!  hehehehe
This room is about the same size as my former craft room, with the exception that I have my own dedicated bathroom and the closet is square vs. the std. long bedroom closet.  It will do thou.

Also we will have 2 extra rooms tha will be gest rooms (for those of you who have said -your coming  to visit)

Last week we saw a pretty cute (manufactured home) - move-in ready!!!---on an acre and a half,,,,,, but there was no fence or garage! OUT HERE you need them!!! And they would have been a bit pricy.... it has been hailing off an on lately----and you really need to have your vehicles indoors for the winter so they don't get to weather beat.  So to build a garage for the 32 foot RV, and my Mercedes, and my hubby's Truck,,, would cost a small fortune.  Then if we ever wanted to sell ------- we have heard that Manufactured homes - don't have a very good resale value. 
This home was also also about 12 miles out of town with a beautiful Mountain range for a back yard backdrop!----- that means 12 miles away from Hobby Lobby and 16 miles away from Micheal's,,,,and grocery shopping and just shopping in general would not be fun, with everything so far away....(that just won't due!!!)  I like rule but not BFE!!!  hehehehehe

Other news

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE and Miss all of you Sooooooooo very much!



  1. your adventure sounds amazing. sounds like a lot of work on the house but it will look fab when you're done. ooo can't wait to watch your videos and to hear your voice =) take care.

  2. we miss you too, but it's great to read good news from you. see you soon (by vid') ;)

  3. Hey girl! Great hearing from you! I sure miss you on YT! You CRACK ME UP! Everytime I watch one of your videos I smile. Remember the one where you said, "Son of a 12345." I ACTUALLY LOVED THAT ONE!!! lol.... You make me gigle girl!
    So one questions... I watched your YT video and read your blog entry and I am a little confused. Are you flipping the house, fixing it then immediately selling it, or is it a "fixer-upper"? Just wondering if you were going to stay in the house because it has a lot of potential!

  4. Hey girl, glad to see you are still kicking! It sounds like you are on an adventure! You are correct about losing value in a premanufactured home. Will be glad to see what you have up your sleeve once you are settled.
