Here Kitty Kitty Kitty

My sweet boy, Tiger, has been missing for the past few days. I think he got out when Adam and his parents were moving things out of the old house on Saturday. He hasn't come home yet, and I'm so worried he won't come home before we move. I put food out front, and it was gone when I got home from work today, but I don't know if it's him eating it. I've left the back door open so he can get in if he comes home, and no luck.

Come home Tiger!!! We all miss you and want you home!!!

10 Great/Not Great Thought Tuesday

Surprise, surprise....another TTT focused on house stuff....here we go!

1. We closed on the house last Friday!!! And that is GREAT!

2. Adam and his parents painted a few of the rooms at the new house, and they look GREAT!

3. They also put in new electrical outlets in the bedroom so they aren't icky yellow, but bright white...and they look GREAT!

4. When they turned off the electricity to the master bedroom to redo the outlets, they crossed some wires and now we don't have power in the bedroom, walk-in closet, and bathroom....And that is NOT great.

5. My dad is going to come over and fix it on Thursday....and that is GREAT!

6. The previous owners of our house didn't do any cleaning what-so-ever before they left on Friday...and that is NOT great.

7. I hired a cleaning company to come clean the new house today so I wouldn't have to do it. And that is GREAT!

8. I also hired a carpet cleaning company to come professionally steam clean the carpets in the new house tomorrow so I don't have to do it....and that is GREAT!

9. The two companies are also going to clean the rental house when we are done so I don't have to....and that is GREAT!

10. The two companies are giving us a great deal for both houses...and that is GREAT!

Loan secured!

Adam and I signed all of our loan paperwork for our new house this afternoon!!!!! The only thing we are waiting on now is the ex-husband (well, not really an ex-husband since the sellers weren't married, but did have a common-law marriage) to sign his portion of the documents. Apparently he is quite the stinker and is being difficult. All I know is he better have his stuff done by next Friday when we are scheduled to close or I may go up to Washington myself and kick his butt!

So our next step is to finish up (or rather really start) packing everything at the old place to make moving day easier.

3 Confession Thursday

1. A good friend of mine joined Weight Watchers today and it inspired me to stop pretending to be on the weight-loss-train and actually get on! I'm going to start using the Weight Watchers website that I've been paying for.

2. I made this decision after I had ice cream and salami (not together) for dinner.

3. I have forgotten my old mantra, "Don't give up what you want the most for what you want in the moment." I want to lose weight and be healthy the most, I don't want to give it up for the delicious but fattening food that beckons me.

10 House Thoughts

1. Adam is freaking out about the whole "We're buying a house and closing in 16 days and I don't know if our funding is taken care of" thing...

2. I'm surprisingly calm about the financial part of the whole thing...

3. Because when I've talked with the Mortgage company we're going through, they've told me we're completely on track and good to go.

3. I still haven't done much packing...

4. I'm starting to worry about that part of the whole "We're buying a house and closing in 16 days and haven't packed more than 4 boxes" thing.

5. Our landlord still hasn't responded to our letter telling him we are giving our notice...

6. Which worries me that he's going to cause us some problems with getting out of our lease...

7. Even though the wording says we can give 30 days at any time without having to pay forthe rest of our lease.

8. We've decided we're going to paint our master bedroom in the new house...

9. We have not decided what color to paint it.

10. I can't believe we are closing on our house in 16 days!!!!!

1. We chose our lender for our house today. Another step closer!

2. I found out our official closing date is September 26!

3. Holy smokes that's super soon!!!

4. Oh my...I just realized I have an entire house I have to pack before then!

5. Tarot just ran into the living room carrying the kitties' big tiger they like to play with...the thing is bigger than her and she RUNNING with it in her mouth!

6. I should get some organizing done tonight on my work laptop, but there are so many other things I need to get done.

7. But I have so many other things I could be doing tonight...

8. Like packing my house!

9. I've got to get my nails done soon. They are looking pretty bad. Probably won't happen tonight, though.

10. Since I'll be packing my house!
