Here I am hiding behind Mini, and standing with Oldest while on vacation in Vicksburg, MS. (Actually, I'm holding Mini in place - he's got his eyes on this really BIG hill that rolls down to the battle museum. Perfect for him to break his neck on, ya know.)
Since summer is fading fast, it seemed like the thing to do - post one of the pics from our vacation. I plan to hang on to summer with both hands to the very end. (Have I mentioned Oldest returns to school tomorrow. Arg!)
Hubby didn't make it into any of the pics, by the way. I didn't realize that til we got home. Ho hum. Sort of like our first anniversary trip to New Orleans. I didn't end up in any of those. They're all pics of hubby because I was to blockhead toting the camera. When will we ever learn?!
Hubby and I are viewing another house today. It's near the local airport, one of those tiny, tiny private airports that we didn't even know existed in our town until after we've lived here for a good 8 years. The house not in our current school district, but we thought for the price it was worth a look. It's a brick 3 bed, 2 bath with an inground pool, 1800 or so sq feet on about half an acre. Hubby has been out there already and has sent me some cell phone pics. I'm going to take the boys out there for a peek once Mini wakes up from his nap. The realtor told us to just climb in through the front window and do a self-tour. Ha!
Goofy as that sounds, I'm gonna do it. I'm curious to see just how much work it will take to clean up this "potential" house inside. I'm of the understanding the floors will have to be completely redone, and the pool needs a new liner. *sigh*
We've done so much wrangling since we started our hunt, I'm pretty much of the mind "Just pick something already!" My parents have been whining now and again about us designing to move far, far away... and I'll admit the prospect is tempting. But we'll see this house first, and if it's something we can work with we'll take a drive to the bank.
