House floods and hair dye…

I am one of those 20somethings who already has gray hairs, yep it is true! Actually it is a chunk of gray hairs, kind of a streak on my right side right near my hair line. I usually dye my hair with the intent of covering the gray I have tons of hair so I usually need 2 boxes of dye. Unfortunately, dye is expensive and these days we are scrounging every penny we have for our $10,000 move. Lately this has prevented me from enjoying the luxury that is coloring my hair… When I do color my hair it is a treat and I usually feel all good about myself for a few days after, plus my hair just feels better and less coarse after dying it. While browsing...

Good morning all, got a flood? We do!

Look what we had the pleasure of waking up to in the basement of our rental… It rained most of the night and thank goodness our neighbors warned us about the leaky basement as we were moving it. Apparently our basement has some major leaking issues and today we get to witness them first hand. Here is a video I tried to make of the madness. You can hear the water squishing in the carpet when someone walks over 9 or 10 foot wide drenched area. The cats and dog are quite concerned about the wetness as are we. The water is coming from under the storage rack we have in the corner, it is flowing across the floor and right under the wooden bar/ wall and is under the...

We have our RV, check that one of the to-do list!

Our RV is now in our possession! Over the weekend we spent some time cleaning it out and doing some general deep cleaning. We are taking it in to be worked on probably Wednesday and expect it to be done in a week or so. We got such a screaming deal on the Winnebago! It is from the 70’s and certainly doesn’t look chic but it is in such good condition and was such a great price. N still can’t believe we found an RV for under $2,500, I knew we would and am so glad we snagged it. I see my house floods & hair dye post got quite the response! Just so you know my mom is just being nice, I do have gray hairs and the occasional...

Reflecting on the past then looking forward and planning ahead

There are only 4 months left in this whirlwind of a year! Remember all that madness? Need a recap? Last August we were living in Flagstaff, AZ and N proposed to me on the top of the San Francisco Peaks. Then we packed up a moving truck, the RV, said goodbye to all our family, friends and we drove cross country in our RV with our zoo of animals. N got a new job and we relocated. Once we got here we settled in and less than a month later we learned of our surprise pregnancy. We had been trying for almost 2 years before relocating with no success. We were planning our wedding when we discovered I was pregnant, I had just purchased my wedding dress. Once the pregnancy...

Wordless Wednesday: WTF? Edition!!

Why must Jack vomit almost every time he eats? Especially now that we have WHITE carpets? Perhaps it is because he is apparently swallowing whole pieces of food as opposed to chewing them like every other animal in the world. Yep, those whole bits came right from his stomach! Nothing like the sound of a cat preparing to vomit waking you from your afternoon pregnancy nap and when you try to quicky move him from the carpet to a vomit safe tiled area. BAM, explosive vomit stream shoots from his mouth and splatters the white carpet. AND, there is not carpet cleaner here for me to clean the mess up with. Double WTF! Called N and told him to either pick me up so orange dye for the carpet or...

Home buying fun in Evansville, IN- sellers are still greedy even when screwed!

Remember all the times I have talked about trying to buy a home on this blog? Well we are still living the first time home buyer saga. Over the weekend we looked at a place here that was a possible option for us, we met a Realtor that was overly eager to make her money and we once again have home buying on the brain. The main reason we are looking to buy is because of the economic state, it is a buyers market for sure. Houses on the market are in abundance, home prices are falling and lots of people are desperately needing to sell the homes they can no longer afford. Plus with President Obama it is likely we’ll see some type of housing market stimulus attempt, you...

I am just a tad angry right now!

Lets see, it has been 18 days since we sent off our rent check and our “we are concerned about mold” letter via certified mail to the landlords. As of today the letter STILL has not been claimed and is sitting at the post office. N called the landlord over the weekend about it and their response was “well, we’ve been busy and we figured it was returned to you already”. She then said once it was returned to us we could “drop it by some store of theirs” or she could come by and pick it up from us. Yeah, you are going to have to come by and get it from us since your laziness is not our issue. We sent the letter off to you like we...

We trimmed the holiday tree, have you?

Normally we apply for a permit and venture out in to the forest to cut our own tree down, this year since we just barely moved to our new hometown in September we didn’t have time to put in for a permit so we resorted to buying a tree instead. A local boyscout’s troupe was selling holiday trees just around the corner from our house so we stopped by to check things out on Sunday afternoon. They had quite a selection of various trees in all shapes and colors. We found a full one that was a greenish/ blue color. This is something we are not used to seeing as in Arizona all the pine trees are a plain green color. We spent $45.00 on the tree which is funding...

Digging out the holiday decor and waiting for snow!

We are not venturing from the house this weekend (except to possibly get a x-mas tree). Weekends are crazy traffic wise here and well, we don’t want to deal with crazy consumers and retailers. Instead we are taking care of some errands around the house and are phasing in our boxes of holiday decor as we move the fall decor out. I am back in bed right now. I got as far as putting some laundry away and straightening a pile of crap in the bedroom then my heart started racing and I felt dizzy so I had to scale it back and rest for a bit… I still have loads of laundry to do, I need to iron N’s work shirts and vacuum the house but I just feel...

OMG, we are actually living in Evansville…

Yesterday was my first day in the new house alone and strangely enough it was weird. Normally I love my alone time, it gives me time to sort things out, do what I need to do and I am just better off after having that alone time. Today I am at a loss, I haven’t been alone for more than 30 minutes in the last 2 weeks and now that I am it is weird… Yesterday was also N’s first day on the new job, yay! He was on both the 5 & 6pm news and he did a perfect jobs as usual. When he came home he was telling me what the expectations were for him and that people were amazed at his comfort and confidence when he was...

I feel good! Are we ahead of the game?

Well, we spent the weekend dealing with yard sale crap and we even devised a little marketing ploy for our sale. N made up a nifty flier and I just posted it all over the internets this morning! We are fleeing poverty with a view! A well known Flagstaff personality is leaving Arizona… Come buy our stuff and see us off! This sale will take place on Moenkopi Trail in Kachina Village just south of the Flagstaff airport. July 26th & 27th. Sale starts @ 7am on Saturday and @ 8am on Sunday, come early to get the best selection (but not before 7 please). This is not a “regular yard sale”, we are selling so much more! Buy our stuff so we don’t have to take it with us!...

Beer fest in flagstaff and the regular domestic disaster before moving

N got tickets to beer fest through his work and was super excited to go. He is afterall a beer lover/ homebrewer so this event was right up his alley. Me, I am not a fan of beer but I figured getting out of the house and having some alcohol might not be a bad idea. We headed to beer fest at about 4pm yesterday after a super productive morning and afternoon. The thing about this town is that people are just "different" here. At bars and similar community events people just dress up like it is halloween, maybe I am just out of the loop or something but I think dressing up randomly is kind of odd. Anyway, people were out dispite the rain. They were dressed in their...

So much chaos and uncertainty in the USA right now *sigh*

I have been following the news of the massive flooding occurring in the Midwest right now since Indiana is a place we may be relocating to. Many people are displaced and have had their homes ravaged by the flooding and storms. Wisconsin, Indiana and Iowa are in a state of emergency as a result of the flooding and the video footage is just heartbreaking to see, houses are just being swept away by raging waters. In the east people are experiencing a heat wave as temperatures reach triple digits and earthquakes are devastating many in places such as Nevada, California and Greece. I was left thinking “Holy cow, what is going on with the weather” after learning of all the chaos. Add the weather stress to the economic stress of...

Rootbeer explosion!!!!

Okay so here is a funny AND very true story: So N brews his own beer. He decided to try out a batch of root beer for us to try. So it has yeast in it, it sits and ferments creating the carbonation. It was brewed in a one gallon glass bottle/ jar thingy. You know the kind you can buy gallons of beer in at a microbrewery… He followed all the steps and we tried our first glass. It has a real yeasty taste to it, tasted more like beer than root beer. We didn’t like it very much. Anyway he took it out of the fridge because we didn’t like it and hadn’t planned on drinking anymore of it. It was sitting on the counter, we hadn’t gotten...
