Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

We're in the market to buy our first home! It's exciting but also very scary because it's a big chunk of change! Since we've been looking, our finances have come to light and there are two things that I wanted to share that I am proud of. One, I am proud of my dang good credit score (over 800). My dad told me when I went off to college to be scared- very scared- of buying things on credit and his advice stuck with me. Second, I am and will always be proud of the fact that I was totally 100% debt free when Jason and I got married. No credit card debt and no school loans. I took out some school loans for college but most of it was "forgiven" when I was a teacher. Don't be knocking teachers, y'all! People would be like, "Why the heck are you teaching?" And in my head, I would be like, "Dude, all my school loans will be gone by my third year of teaching!" Well, I am sure that any loan forgiveness programs for teachers are most likely gone now but I am so glad that I was teaching at the right time to benefit from them!

Tyler is becoming a smart-ass. (Is there a nicer way of saying that, cause calling your son a smart-ass doesn't sound right.) The other day when I saw him pushing Chase in the back so fast that Chase looked like he was going to fall over, I told Tyler to stop. His response? "Mom, I'm just helping him walk." When I looked at him with stern eyes, he said, "I'm guiding him!" This morning, when Chase woke up, Tyler was jumping on him. I mean, like WWF moves and Chase started to cry. Guess what Tyler said when I told him to stop? "Mom, I'm just giving him a hug!" Oh my! Kids crack me up!

So, back to being on the hunt for a house. We saw this house and it would be perfect if I start a daycare at my house. For some reason, this has always been a dream of mine. My mom and my sister are like, "Why do you always talk about that? Just don't do anything! Stop talking about this daycare business!" But, I WANT to work and do SOMETHING! Making some income would be nice too. We'll see what happens.

Happy Hump Day, everyone! Hang tight till the weekend!

Ha ha, was this house 46 Emerald? We are looking to buy too, by the way. I think we are looking at all the same houses.
