Life and stuff

I walked into the kitchen the other day to find this:
Yes, that is a pan of brownies with what was the top of a lunch meat package on top. Funny coincidence or well placed hint? We'll have to ask Tyson.
For the record, I was not the one eating most of the brownies anyway, but this actually did keep me away from them for the rest of the day.
In other news, I've been getting some questions on our current house situation.
Well... It is now my belief that putting things on the internet = cursed, so I'm not going to say anything about anything until stuff is all final.
Recent example: We did put an offer in on a house a little while ago and I just happened to mention it on facebook... BOOM! Fell through. It was our choice to let it go, but still. The internets cursed me! I know it!
So, I love you all, but you're just gonna have to wait on house news until we've actually got a house and the keys are in our hot little hands. And then, believe me, there will be pictures galore!!
One question for all you homeowners out there though... How would you rate your fear level on a scale of 1 - 10 once you committed to being in debt for the next 30 years of your life? Scary, no?


  1. scary. but, NOT AS SCARY as the thought of paying thousands in rent to some other owner...

  2. I agree with Morgan! Just make sure it's a house you're going to be happy to stay in if the economy stays like this for a long time... The brownie thing was funny. I would just take it as the brownies are now low-fat-eat up!!!

  3. eh, if you can't make your payment, Obama will bail you out. that's what I'm counting on. So, no worries!

  4. I agree with Morgan as well. Why pay about the same amount for rent when you can be investing it into your own home. Good luck, I can't wait to see what you find when that day comes!

  5. 1-10 I was a 10 for sure.
    Once you're moved in and its yours, all the fear will go away.

    The good news, it's not debt, it's an investment!

    Good luck with everything!

  6. I wasn't scared at all and I wrote the check!

  7. I'm not a home owner, but I know a little something about debt as dental school costs a fortune, not just a little one.

    Sometimes you have to go into debt to make the rest of your life workout. And besides that, homes are a great investment. It makes me sick that since we've been married we've paid over $30,000 of other peoples' mortgages. Ugh.

  8. Oh, so I guess I'm at about a 2.

  9. If you love the house, and have jobs... it shouldn't be too scary... it's the move and adding much more to the bill with interior decorating that tips off the scary button.

  10. First time home buyer???? Always a 10!!! From your realtor in Utah! Ha Ha
