HOUSES....I mean really! You have to be kidding me!

More to come later.......
Alright, I am back to finish what I started. So Jon and I have been looking at houses. We have also been watching HGTV's House Hunters and Property Virgins. Those shows are great and they have really given us some prospective. So we know what town we want to live in, we know what neighborhood we want to live in, and we know the house we want. We have gone back and forth on this, but we have finally made the decision. Before we buy the house we are going to pay of all of our debt. (We are taking Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. It has really been helpful with money management, getting rid of debt, and planning our financial future.) So Jon thinks that with in the next two years or so we should be able to progress with our purchase. We have seen the layout for the subdivision and there are about 23 undeveloped lots that we like. So once we decide to move forward we can pick our lot and everything about our home. It will take about 4-6 to build so we will see.
I was so shocked watching HGTV at how much some house run and how some people so easily shell out 8 hundred thousand on a house!
I was just excited and thought I would share. I have lots of things to blog about so there will probably be a few post today.

Things that irritate me!

Gosh, sometimes there are just things that really, really irritate me! I mean really why must people do these things.

Here is my list:
1. When someone is having a bad day, and they call on the phone and they want to take it out on you! I often think to myself. If you want to take that tone with me, please hang up and try again! I did not ruin your day or your life so do not in anyway get ugly with me when I pick up the phone. I could understand if I was mean or rude when they call. Therefore, Mr. and Mrs. rude not call my phone and yell at me because your are mad that you had to wait in the line at the post office for 35 minutes or that you got stuck in traffic! I do not work at the post office and I did not jam up the traffic on the highway! Other than that please...have a great day!

2. When people just expect you to pull something they need out of your butt. Hello, this is not Burger do not have it your way. I am not FedEx, UPS, or Kinko's. I do not claim to know everything. I do not have x-ray vision, I do not read minds, and I am human. I can not accomplish 500 things at one time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The last time I recalled I was not getting paid to be your personal assistant. I do not claim to be able to do all this. So next time you think that I should drop what I am doing at the very moment you walk in the room to attend to your every need, take a number, have a sit, and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.

3. When people who are impatient, and they do not want to sit in traffic like the rest of people stuck on the interstate during rush hour. I mean seriously what makes some people think that they are just so important that they should be able to drive up the shoulder of the road and someone is just suppose to stop and let them in! We have all been at work all day, we are ready to get home, and do not care to tolerate pompous people like yourself! That goes for people who think that can get in the outside lane that is merging and go to the end of it and stop expecting all of the ordinary (un-special) drivers should let God's gift to the highway over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. Hangup phone calls. If you dial a number, and you realize it is incorrect , at least have the common courtesy to at least say "oops, I have dial the wrong number" before slamming down your phone. I mean no one on the other end of the phones wants to pick up only to hear it being slammed down on the other end! I mean hello it is not our fault that you dialed the wrong number!

5. People who think they know more about everything than everyone. I mean can you possibly know everything! If you claim that then you are lying. I am talking about those people who really get under your skin! You know if you say that the sky is blue; they must correct your because everyone knows the sky is red! Hello! Come on get off your high horse and realize that you do not know everything...

6. People who do not say "excuse me" when you are walking down the isle at the store or for that matter anywhere. I mean if I am in your way, do not push me over or run over my foot, heel, or person in general. I would happily move over to let you by if you would only asked. I understand that sometimes it is hard for you to say those little words becasue soemone like you should not have to ask people to move...we should just do it because of who you are! There are times if you are coming by that I move without you having to say anything, but if I am looking in the freezer section, and do not realize that you need by; please just ask instead of ramming me! It will help keep the peace in supermarket, mall, or wherever we might be because when you ram your buggy or stroller into me, push me, or hit me...that upsets me, but it really REALLY makes my husband unhappy! So lets just not go there, and mind our manners that we should have learned when we were young and in grade school. Excuse me, Please, Pardon me, Sorry, Thank you. Is that to much to ask? I mean I am just asking to be treated like I would treat you if you were in my way! Or the next time you do it I may just run down the aisle with my buggy so to let you know how it feels!

Alright! I have now vented for the day! I feel much better. Thank the good Lord that it is Friday. I will be leaving work shortly to go and spend the next couple days with my wonderful husband making lots of memories doing absolutely nothing!

New Car

Oh my. It has been a while since I last updated....months now. Some good things have happened! Jon and I got a new car which we are so excited about. We got a 2007 Nissan Altima. It does not have a key...just a push button to start it. It is so nice, and with gas as high as it is we get really good gas mileage.

Here is what it looks like:
