7 Days Until We Get The New House

A week from today we close on both houses! We're very excited! We have to be out of the old house this weekend, not because the new owner needs in there early. The house is making Mom really sick. She started itching again last night and her feet are really swollen and itchy. We're not sure why her feet are so bad, but for some reason they're affected by this the most. The non-drowsy allergy medicine isn't working and the drowsy stuff really knocks her out so she can't take those and then drive or work. She touched the back door this morning to let us out and where her thumb touched the paint has bothered her all day. We think once the paint gets set and is fully dried it won't bother her any more, but we won't own the house anymore then so we just need to get Mom out of here. Saturday will be the official move in day to Grandma's house and then hopefully Mom will start feeling better so we can get stuff moved into the new house a few days later.

I can't believe a couple of the Mom's like the color of the house! Maggie and Mitch's Mom liked it because she could picture flowers in front of it. Mom has been trying for 4 years to get flowers and grass to grow at that house. That's why there's rock everywhere now. The new house already has some flowers that Mom can't wait to start taking care of. She said the rose and lilac bushes need some love and so do the iris. There's also a little bush thing that's really small that is very interesting that she can't wait to see what it's supposed to look like for real. It also needs some love. Mom says if there were a bunch of pretty flowers everywhere like Maggie and Mitch's Mom said, she MIGHT like the color. Probably not though - mostly because Mom is pretty miserable right now.

My wonderful boyfriend Flash's Mom also said she liked it. Flash and Peanut are always trying to convince us their mom is crazy and I think I believe them now! She took their boy to the alligator farm where he could have been eaten (my Dad's uncle told us stories about the alligators in Houston attacking kids at the park) and she likes the color of our house! Definitely crazy!! (I'm just kidding!! I know she didn't really take the boy to a dangerous place. She's still a little weird for liking the house color though.)
I also got an award!!! Huskee Boy gave it to me!

I know a lot of you have already gotten this award, but I came up with some of you out there that I think deserve this award.
First is Arabella because the pictures of her adventures with the geocaching (did I spell that right?) are really cool!
Mona & The Mommy because the quotes and pictures they put at the top of each post is a lot of fun. I'm ignoring that they put pictures of snakes on their post yesterday.
Next is Lora from It's A Dog's Life. Because she really knows how to spoil dogs, especially labs. THEY HAVE THEIR OWN SWIMMING POOL!!!!!! Have you seen the cool pictures of everybody playing in the pool at their house? Every time I see her pictures I get even more jealous!!!
The next is Nanook and Pooka because no matter what they're doing, they always look cute.
And #5 is The Zoo Crew because they too are cute no matter what they're doing and because I'm jealous that their dachshund sister will play with them. My dachshund sister acts like I'm killing her if I look at her funny!
That was a lot of hard work getting all those links in! Thank goodness Blogger cooperated with me today!
Thanks again to Huskee Boy for giving me the award! More hugs to you and your mom!!!
I'm going to go take a nap now. I was told we have to clean out the fridge of all leftovers tonight. I have to have lots of energy for that! I CAN'T WAIT!!!
OH! I wanted to let you know, also that I'm not ignoring your questions about the new house, it's just that you're asking question I'm going to answer in my big post. Several of you have asked about the color of the enw house since my mom's been having trouble with the yellow and I'm told that the house is white - outside and inside. There's some grey trim outside, but everything is white which means a blank canvas that will not be filled with yellow!
Okay, now I'm off to leave comments on those 5 blogs telling them I gave them an award.


Arabella said...

Thanks Kaos! I love the award. And to tell you the truth, I don't mind the color of the house, I probably wouldn't pick it myself. I live in a brown house and I figure any other color has to be better than brown. We can't wait to hear about your new house!


The Army of Four said...

We've been playing catch-up. You have so much news! I'll bet you can't wait for the new house!
Hmm. The new house color is nice, but I'm partial to blue. Just my opinion.

Peanut said...

Your poor mom. And at least you know now how crazy our mom really is. the woman is a loon. She takes after Grammie though so she didn't have much of a chance.


Maggie and Mitch said...

We sure hope you mom feels less itchy soon, Kaos! This is just awful! We can't wait to see your new yard AND all the pretty flowers gowing and blooming!
Congratulations on your award!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Man, the move's comin' up quickly, eh?

Congratulations on the award! You definitely deserved it. That was really nice of Huskee to pass it on to you!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Kaos!
That yellow color sure is giving your mom a hard time!
Good vibes for her!
Congratulations on your award
Kisses and hugs

Saint Lover said...

Hi Kaos, thank you for the award and the very nice things you said about my blog!

Too bad about the paint. I have the same reaction to some inks that are used in packaging. I have to be very careful what brands I buy because if I touch a box with the offending ink my hands will swell up in the store to the point I cant move my fingers. Its quite strange.


Thanks Lady Kaos for giving me that cool award. The Mommy will add it soon to my sidebar.

The Mommy is doing a post Saturday about friends. Could I use you bog as one of models.

Love ya....Mona

Hi Kaos,
I don't know you'd consider my mum's a nutcase too.. the color of our living and dining area is ORANGE.. as in a dark solid orange. It makes me dizzy at times because I feel like I am living in a giant carrot!!
We are taking pics of the new place and will show you once they are done.
