I have so many things running through my head that I don't even know where to start!
Traveling, Diggs on a plane, Family, Engagement parties, and houses.
Let's go back to last Thursday.....I was working from home that day and also doing a million other things. Trying to finish packing, clean up the house for the Open House, work, do laundry etc. Finally about 2:30pm I decide I better shower if I am ever going to get out of here and get Henry. Then, my phone rings - it's a realtor who says we will be there in 30 mins if that works for you. You can't say no because you want everyone to see your house.
I hang up the phone and just start running around the house. Suitcases aren't packed, I'm not showered, trash needs to go out, dog needs to be walked and it is raining. I basically just throw whatever I see in the suitcase and hope I got what we needed for our trip to Albany. I get Ellie in the car and carry out the last suitcase as they are walking into the house. Now I am sitting in the car at the pool eating Doritos because it was the last thing I grabbed. I'm hoping I will get a chance to go back into the house - WRONG. Another realtor calls and asks if they can come through in another 30 mins.
I never went back in and realized that I actually did pretty well packing and only a toothbrush was missed on my part.
Friday morning we are up and at em. Flight to Albany out of Baltimore. First flight for Henry since he was five months old. It went pretty well and he enjoyed the planes. We land in Albany and head to Chuck E Cheese to meet the rest of the family. While we are there I check my email and see that we got an offer on the house. An offer while we are at Chuck E Cheese - not sure I will ever forget that moment.
Here is a picture of Charlie countering the offer with our realtor:
Saturday we got up bright and early because we were off to Saratoga racetrack for the engagement party. As I am dressing Henry, Charlie comes in to tell me they accepted the counter offer. I about dropped my poor child. I was just not expecting everything to go that quickly. After jumping up and down and telling the family we are out the door and on our way to Saratoga.
Saratoga Racetrack was beautiful. I don't have any pictures of the actual track so you will just have to believe me. Henry loved the horses and just running around all day. The engagement party was filled with lots of family and food. Some of our family actually won big at the track!
Sunday we did some visiting with more family. We even saw Great Nanny and Great Poppy.
After a visit with them we were back on the plane home, back to reality.
