That is what my blog has become derelict, lost in space where no one ever takes care of it. I have been getting busier and busier, and my poor blog has been getting neglected. I also haven't been knitting lately. But hopefully that will change soon.
On to other news, Greg got an interview through the county school district and it looks pretty hopeful, especially since he is just finishing his first year as a sub, most of the time the senior subs get called for interviews. He got a great recommendation letter from a local principal, and so we have our fingers crossed, we should know later today or tomorrow.
My brother-in-law and his new wife are buying a house which her aunt and uncle are selling to them for really cheap. They don't have any money saved up so this is a good deal for them, the house is a cute little manufactured home, in a mobile home park but it has all been redone and it's very cute.
Now everyone is pressuring us to buy a cheap little house like them, but Greg and I want something that is practical to put money into, we would like to see a good return on our investment, and having a house like that wouldn't do it for us. Plus we have like 10,000 saved up for a down payment and we wouldn't want that to go to waste. And as much as I would like to just jump on the next opportunity that comes our way I don't want all that hard earned money to go down the drain.
I interviewed for another part time job as a preschool teacher, I haven't heard back from them yet, but in all honesty and not too worried about it seeing as this would only give me about 48 more hours a month more than I already work currently. But they keep saying that jobs are on the rise here so we will see maybe I can just get a better full time job or something. A girl who I work with at the soccer club is resigning from part of her position as ref coordinator so maybe I get more hours that way too.
But wish us luck maybe by chance this will get us one step closer to a house.


  1. Definitely wishing you good luck! Dave and I would love to buy a house, but we need to save a down payment first!

  2. Good luck on the homebuying! Don't let anyone pressure you into getting a house that doesn't feel quite right. It is a huge investment, and you should be happy with it!
