Getting Out Of Our Empty House!

Well, we now have several empty rooms! All of our couches are gone, our big screen TV, the washer and dryer, and the furniture in the extra bedroom. It's kind of sad! We're really excited though that we've been able to sell most of the big things so far so that we can just move with a light load and then get some new stuff when we get there!
Yesterday, we spent the whole day out and about. Calvin finally finished his three busy weeks of homework, a huge paper, and three tests. After we settled a few transactions, including the sale of the sectional and the TV, we set out for the South Towne Expo Center. We had a booth there for the Bear River Lodge. I had worked on Thursday and Friday, and I wanted to show Calvin and Camden all the cool stuff. My two favorite things were the baby bear cubs and the splash dogs!
We then went to the BYU baseball game against the U of U. BYU won 11 to 3. We then stopped and got some frozen yogurt (our new favorite 80 calorie treat) and then did some shopping! After that we even got to go to BYU for some bowling, and then a dollar movie at the Varsity Theater. It was a really fun day!

For Sale!

Lots of things FOR SALE! On Saturday night we signed a contract with a family to buy our house and they want to move in on March 31st! That means we have to be out of here in three and a half weeks! We'll know better this week if everything is going to go through ok, but they are pre-approved for the loan, so hopefully it works out! We decided to just drop the price on our house way low to just make sure we could sell it before we had to move. Within 24 hours, we had signed the contract. We really feel like this will be a blessing to our family and to the family who is buying it. Wish us luck!

So...if you are in the market for some kitchen stuff, some furniture, etc, let us know!!

Ultimate Housewife

Today I feel like the ultimate housewife. I cleaned our garbage can in the kitchen. It was gross. There was green stuff growing on the bottom and it smelled terrible. I was thinking I should just throw it away and get a new one, but the thirfty wife in me said no. Haha, so, I devised an amazing plan. I boiled a pot of water and poured it into the garbage can along with some bleach. I shut the lid and thirty minutes later, it was perfectly clean! Here is the after picture. I wish I would have taken a before. So that's it! That's how exciting my life is! Haha.
