What I Have Been Up To....

I can't belive it's been weeks since my last post : (
Things have been CRAZY here!!
My son & daughter-in-law decided they wanted to buy a house or mobile home, they were already paying $700.00 rent so why not put that towards something they could own they figured. We have been out looking and looking, most houses in their price range are being snapped up by investors who are renting them out. My daughter-in-law got her heart hurt a few times thinking she had found "The One" only to have it already in contract to someone else. Day after day we hit the roads in search of a home and lo and behold they found a mobile home just a short distance from our house that they really like for a great price! They put a bid in on it and we will see, Keep your fingers crossed....

In other news, Remember those two wills that I am the executor of? Well two of the people listed in the wills have passed away already : ( That was one of my worst fears, that by taking so long to get these wills distributed that the folks wouldn't be around to enjoy the money and sure enough it's true. I'm still trying to get the $10,000 stated in the first will for my husband & myself. I just can't understand if the gal had a savings account & checking account that half of that amount in there would not be considered her assests???? They are telling me that since the accounts were joint accounts ALL of the funds are given over to the other joint holder. Her will states in the first paragraph that she wanted to give us the $10,000 as a gift, It drives me crazy that we are unable to get it!! Kelly says she is seeing a green eyed jealous monster rearing it's ugly head in me over these wills and she is SO right!! It turns out that these two ladies were worth over a MILLION dollars at their death, each one of the three families listed are going to be getting over $300,000 dollars each!! Two of these families don't even really know the ladies since the main person the ladies left the money to has now passed and their kids are going to be getting the money. Kelly my old soul says I just need to remember that is how the ladies wanted it and that is how it is to be, but DAM I could have lived the rest of the say 30 years I have left on this earth without ever having to worry about money like I have to do now each and every day of my life if I was getting that amount of money! What makes me more cranky is that $10,000 I mentioned above that we can't get and here these people didn't even know them and they are going to get their money : ( I know I am being a spoiled brat and need to just be thankful for the money I will be getting!! I just don't understand why I never seem to get the lucky breaks in life like these three families getting $300,000 from out of the blue,
Can you imagine how happy they are.....
Well I'll sign off for know, I am sure you all are sick of my whinning : (
Until Next Time - God Bless!!

I was wondering what you were up to! I hope you son and daughter in law get the house!

I know what you mean about the money. Sometimes we just wish it could be us. :-/

Aside from the lower cost, an advantage of Hogan Shoes 2011ordering identical baby suits in 3 distinct sizes is that your little one gets to wear the outfit for up to twelve months whereas usually outfits would only last 3 months due to baby growth rates.Hogan Shoes 2011 Buying in packs of three saves you the inconvenience of searching for baby clothes all the time
