What's going on at our house

Ya, life is still marching on and I'm just trying to keep up. We are packing up all superfluous items and getting the house ready for the market. After going through the rooms I have determined that we have a lot of stuff. I think we are finally going to tackle Lindsay's room and I'm a little scared. I've found so many weird and gross things other times I've cleaned it. The funniest was when I found an egg buried deep in a laundry basket. It was so old that the yoke would slap against the sides of the shell. I asked her why on earth she was keeping an egg in her room. She told me she was trying to hatch it...for the last 2 months. WHAT! So glad it didn't break. Uhg, could you imagine? Horrifying yet so cute at the same time. :)

Anyways, that's what I've been up to and why I haven't been posting. Life has also just been kind of boring to. School's fine, girls are fine, Jeff and I are fine, everything is fine. Fine is boring, but fine.

Geez, I sure hope that she hasn't left any eggs to hatch over here.
Leave it to the Lou.

Alexandra found a birds nest at school today which she brought home. She thought that perhaps there could be an egg tucked inside it somehow, and we just weren't seeing it. And she is holding to the hope that one day she will find a little bird hatched in her bedroom that would follow her around.

Your egg story had me thinking of this :)

Hurry and get your house on the market asap(yesterday) If you think a first time buyer could qualify for your home they have to close by November 30th to get the $8000 tax benefit.

Sorry the realtor in me comes out every once and a while.

In Hong Kong eggs like that are a holiday treat. They call them 100 year eggs. They bury them and eat them MONTHS/YEARS later. Lindsay must have been tapping into her Cantonese side. ;D

I'll take boring over trials. :)

It's not Jim-it's me Jeanette. For some reason, it didn't sign him out.

I found a bowl of salsa in my daughters bed this morning - evidently she needed a midnight snack!

Doesn't sound boring to me, it sounds like life, which is an adventure. The egg story cracked me up (pun intended). :)
