House for Sale

We found out yesterday that the people leasing our house have to move to Oregon. The guy living there has the chose to move and keep his job or be laid off. Well in times like this obviously you can't blame them for keeping the job. But now we have 2 houses which means 2 mortgages to pay. :/ We are not sure what we are going to do. We can try to lease it again but with the way the market is I don't think we could get someone to pay enough to cover our mortgage. Or we could sell it but I don't think it would even appraise for what we owe. So we are kind of stuck between a rock and hard spot. So if anyone know anybody looking for a house in west phoenix we have one available. It is just under 1500 Sq. Ft. 3 bedroom, 2 bath, living room, family room, big pantry, laundry room, and it has a decent size backyard for a phoenix home. It really is a nice, cut house and we would love someone to be in it. :)

Weekend Estravaganza!!!

So I know I have not posted in like 2 months but that is because we have not done much. Brandon was working in Tucson for 5 weeks and so I mostly just sat and home and watched movie. Nothing exciting but I was so excited for this week cause we were finally going to do something that I could take pictures of and post. Well things do not always go as planned so I have no pictures and not very good stories. :(

Beware this is a long Woe is me story so if you don't feel like hearing something like that right now don't read it. :) I don't want to put a damper on anyones day.

We headed to Phoenix on Friday and we stopped at my grandparents house to measure some of their windows so it was really nice to see them again for a little bit. Then we headed to Rod and Kathy's. We had to bring both cars so can could take Brandon's truck to the shop so it was a really boring drive. But we got to his parents house and we were happy to see the O'leary's and Chris and Brittany and Jenny were all there too. I had the worst headache when we got there so I was probably a little cranky but I was still happy to see everyone. We woke up Saturday morning and had a yummy breakfast and then headed to the lake. This is what I was supposed to take pictures of but when we got there I had a stomach ache. I was hoping it was just going to go away so I got in the water and floated around for a little bit and my stomach didn't bother me that much but then all the sudden it started hurting so bad. So I got out of the water and went and sat in the truck and it was just getting worse and worse. So finally I had Brandon drive me to the bathrooms but with no relief he decided to take me back to his parents house. I felt so bad cause I know he wanted to stay and have fun with his family but I truly felt like I was going to die. Luckily I feel asleep on the way home and woke up just in time to see that Brandon was driving by our old house. We talked about going to see how it was looking so we drove by and there was a ton of stuff outside. It kind of looked like someone was moving out. So why is this a concern to us, well because we still own the house and are doing a lease option with the people in it so if they move out we are not going to be in good shape. So talk about making me feel any more sick!!! I tried to call our renters today because they have not made their payment and it went straight to voicemail for that is not a good sign. Anyway, Brandon then hurried and rushed me home. Once we got there I took a long hot bath and finally decided to get out when I feel asleep and splashed into the water. He he. I was starting to feel better but I was scared to eat again. So while everyone else enjoyed their nachos, I had soup. but it was good and it kept my stomach from hurting. So the rest of the night when well. We had cake and ice cream to celebrate Jenny's 18th birthday so that was fun. And then everyone left and we went to bed.

The next day was Sunday and we didn't have church until 1:00 so we were able to sleep in a little bit and then get up and lounge around for a while. And then more bad came. Me and Brandon walked out to my car cause he wanted to measure the back to see if some shutters would fit in it. So he opens my door and looks inside and realized that the glove box was open and he asked me why. Then he realized that the center console was open too and that there was stuff everywhere. Well now we have realized that someone was in our car. Brandon, forgetting that we were not in Pima, Accidentally forgot to lock my car door. :( All we could see that they gone was our church bags. Which really upset me since our scriptures and all my relief society stuff was in them. So of course my temper got the best of me and I got upset at Brandon for not locking the doors and then he got mad at me for getting mad at him. Oh boy!!!! Anyway, we go in and tell Rod and with his great cop knowledge he said he bet if we walked around block we would probably find them since they were not of very big value to the thieves. So we got in the car and took a drive and sure enough there they were in the grass out by the street with all our stuff scattered everywhere. I was so happy!!!!! And then apologized to Brandon for losing my temper. I can't think of anything else that was in my car that is missing so that is a good thing. But I thought it was interesting that they did not take my stereo or my Cd's or the ipod that was in my car. I am thankful!!!

Once we got to church and came home and had dinner everything was better. And me made it home safe and sound!!!
