News Snooze

in All Posts

Saturday started off with a whimper…


We got some bad news on the house we’re under contract for, and the only thing that made me feel better was snoozing in bed. 


I had a strange feeling something was wrong with the house (trust your gut!), so we opted for a second specialized inspection and discovered some major-ah problems.  We were devastated.  The issues are fixable but extremely serious.  We’re not closing unless the seller resolves them to our satisfaction (I’ll blog the deets about what we discovered when we decide whether to proceed).  We won’t know what’s really going on until mid-week, and I hate waiting!  I know that walking away at this point isn’t that big of a deal – although we do stand to lose some dough – but the whole thing is stressful.


So… we napped. And napped. And napped.  Honestly, resting felt glorious after all the drama of yesterday!  We FINALLY got up around noon, made breakfast, I tackled some writing, and the Husband golfed.  We also went on a very hot and sweaty 2.0 mile run – it was too blazing out to go any further! 


We also hit up Earth Fare for some goodies.  It was one of those ‘restock the pantry’ trips. The receipt was so long that I used it as a ribbon to do an interpretive dance in the parking lot.  Seriously.  I did.  I’m that person.

I call the “Don’t Cough Into The Bulk Bins” dance.


Here’s lunch/dinner (who knows?  Everything is all screwed up after 13.5 hours of sleeping…):


In the mix:



I made a ginormous batch of Mmmm Sauce.  I could eat this stuff straight.  Expect to see it drizzled on… everything for the next three days.


That’s all, folks!



  • Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing June 18, 2011, 7:08 pm

    So sorry to hear that the house buying process is getting dramatic 🙁 Boo! I hope it works out for the best, whatever that looks like. I have been meaning to make the Mmm sauce for about two months. Ha! Maybe I should get on that? Yeah.

  • Brittany June 18, 2011, 7:10 pm

    It’s such a bummer about the house issues. I hating waiting as well so I know exactly how you feel. Hopefully everything will work out though!

    I STILL need to make some mmmm sauce.

  • Sana June 18, 2011, 7:11 pm

    Good luck girl, I need to get on this mmmmmmm sauce. mama pea knows her shizz.

  • Errign June 18, 2011, 7:14 pm

    “don’t cough in the bulk bins” – I LOL’d. I just discovered EF here in Asheville – we don’t have them in New England and I’m slightly obsessed!

    Sorry about the bad house news 🙁

  • Shelley June 18, 2011, 7:14 pm

    So sorry bout the house, i hoe it all works out for you guys, being a grown up is so stressful sometimes!! Also i have GOT to make some of Mama Pea’s MMMM sauce it’s popping up everywhere in the blog world 🙂

  • E June 18, 2011, 7:15 pm

    What a bummer… I hope everything works out like it’s supposed to!

  • hippierunner June 18, 2011, 7:15 pm

    Caitlin, you are so cute, I love that you did a dance with the receipt! Sorry about the house issues.

  • Dori June 18, 2011, 7:16 pm

    Ugh I’m sorry. Really hope it work out. My record was 15 hours of sleep my first night back at home since leaving for college. I needed to catch up!

  • Andrea @ Run, Eat, Date, Sleep June 18, 2011, 7:18 pm

    Oh no! So sorry to hear about the house. I got turned down for an offer I made on a house, and then I got denied for a mortgage because I owe the IRS (even though I’ve been on a payment plan for a few years and always made on-time payments). Blows!

    But if you do end up walking away, you can get your deposit back if you can get a denial letter from your mortgage loan officer. If it’s something major enough, the lender might not want to lend on that property, therefore creating a denial.

  • Krista @ Can't Survive on Yarn Alone June 18, 2011, 7:21 pm

    Fingers crossed for you both!

    We walked away from a house but not under contract yet. There were things that made me not feel right about the house including that to get to the crawlspace you literally had to crawl through a hole outside the house. We were told we could always dig it out. Um no. The house we did get did need a few things changed to meet code but they were minor.

  • sabrina June 18, 2011, 7:22 pm

    In my experience, the contract/earnest money is contingent on the house inspection (just to be sure, we wrote it into the contract) so if the current owners won’t fix the problem, and it’s major, you can still get your money back. The other option is to figure out how much it would cost to fix it, and then negotiate down to to cover the amount. Good luck, and remember that everything happens for a reason!

  • Christine June 18, 2011, 7:24 pm

    Hahahahaha! Maybe you could do a commercial for Earth Fare! Sorry about your house- I hate it when happy things get stressful.

  • Jen June 18, 2011, 7:29 pm

    Sorry to hear about the bad house news…but better to find that stuff out before you own the place than once you’re shackled to it with a mortgage to pay! It will all work out in the end…lots of deep breaths and long naps will make it right 😉

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) June 18, 2011, 7:30 pm

    What a bummer about the house! I hope everything works out.

  • Kris June 18, 2011, 7:33 pm

    Sorry about the house news. I was getting much needed sleep this morning when DH woke up at 7:00 and decided I needed to get up too. Interrupted my dream about being engaged to Ryan Seacrest (whaaaat?!), and made for a still tired and grumpy wife. Tonight I’m going to make up for it, but probably not w/ 13.5 hours.

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat June 18, 2011, 7:36 pm

    Sorry to hear about the house Caitlin, but I suppose it’s better that the issues came up before you guys move in! I could totally do with an enormous amount of sleep right now – I might follow your lead!

  • Lee June 18, 2011, 7:36 pm

    I’m sorry that it’s not working out. I’m sure you guys are super disappointed. But if you need to walk away, do it, even if you lose a bit of money. It’ll be better than owning a home that has problems.

  • Mrs. Muffins June 18, 2011, 7:37 pm

    It sucks to hear about house drama. Besides the typical stuff you have to go through, it seems like there’s always *something* lurking that either consumes money or time. I’m afraid I’ll never be brave enough to buy a house because all my friends have such horror stories! I hope everything goes smoothly but if not, maybe this house just wasn’t meant to be!

  • Tessa @ Amazing Asset June 18, 2011, 7:39 pm

    Gahh I am sorry about the house news! You both certainly don’t deserve something like this… I hope everything works out for the best!
    Your interpretive dance pictures did make me smile 🙂

  • Monika June 18, 2011, 7:41 pm

    Sorry to hear about the house-

    but that MMMM sauce is probably making up for it a little, maybe?

  • Emma June 18, 2011, 7:48 pm

    Bummer about the house..I hope it all works out!! Also..I noticed your tweets on the pesticides in tampons and what not and if you haven’t heard of the diva cup you should check it out. It kind of weirded me out at first, but it’s honestly the BEST thing ever!!! My period used to be torture, but now not quite as bad. And you save money over time since you don’t have to buy any tampons b/c its reusable!

    • Caitlin June 18, 2011, 7:53 pm

      Can you answer a potential TMI question for me? When you remove the Diva Cup, does blood like, gush out? I keep having that visual.

      • Caitlin June 18, 2011, 8:01 pm

        Okay I have another TMI question. It seems like the Diva cup stem is only about 1/2 inch up in your vagina, at any point do you actually have to reach all up in there during the putting in or removal process?

        Sorry if that just grossed people out.

        • lindsay June 18, 2011, 8:09 pm

          For number one, I’d say no, because it all stays in the cup when you pull it out (there is sometimes a…err.. suction that may pull a little blood out but it doesn’t “gush”)
          Number 2 – I’ve never reached any more in there than I have with a non-applicator tampon, if that helps any…

        • Charlie June 18, 2011, 8:10 pm

          I just twist the base and pull. Never had to reach all up!

        • Kristin June 18, 2011, 8:12 pm

          I personally cut the stem off, because it was insanely uncomfortable. I’d agree with the two above commenters, you just twist and pull. The cup sits right under your cervix (or rather, your cervix sits in the cup), so it’s very easy to put in and take out.

        • Caitlin June 18, 2011, 8:31 pm

          Thank you guys so much. I took a leap of faith and ordered a Diva Cup.

        • Nicole of Raspberry Stethoscope June 18, 2011, 8:37 pm

          Gush doesn’t gush because the cup is sitting up, so you break the seal, and pull it off. Yes, you do have to kind of reach “up in there,” but it’s not like you’re going in that far, haha. I’ve been using one for >6 years and i think it’s very much worth it.

        • Katie B | perkytoafault June 18, 2011, 8:52 pm

          You don’t have to reach very far at all!

        • Katherina @ Zephyr Runs June 18, 2011, 9:39 pm

          You don’t have to reach very far at all – I’ve been using my Diva Cup for over 3 years. They tell you it has a ‘one year lifespan’ but I’ve heard (from them) that they have to say that. It could/should last you up to 10 years!

        • mm June 19, 2011, 3:36 am

          Just had to jump in on this… I’ve been using a Diva Cup for 4 years now (haven’t had to replace it), and I can’t recommend them enough. It is different than a tampon though, and it sits differently in your body, so the trickiest part is learning how to insert it so you get a good seal. If you try to put it in the same way you put in a tampon you may have “leaks” if it doesn’t seal… but if you put it in right and make sure there’s a seal, it’s amazing – better for your body, better for the environment, and cheaper! It’s also more discreet because you don’t have to worry about carting tampons around with you everywhere you go. I also recommend soaking it in a hydrogen peroxide/water mixture at the end of your cycle to clean it.

      • Jessica June 18, 2011, 8:11 pm

        If your cup is if can tip when you are removing it, but blood does not come “gushing” out of your vagina. You empty the blood into the toilet. I actually like seeing the different amounts, I have been able to become much more in tune with my body and am able to tell how much longer I will be on my period, and how often I need to empty the cup each day.

        • Jessica June 18, 2011, 8:13 pm

          Oh, and for #2, I’ve never had to reach very far. Just to get a good grasp on the cup, maybe 1st knuckle? Honestly its not bad. I’ve never regretted the switch!

        • Caitlin June 18, 2011, 8:39 pm

          Alright I can deal with 1st knuckle. I know this seems totally childish, but I hate, hate, hate the thought of reaching up my vajayjay.

      • Emma June 18, 2011, 8:12 pm

        Haha nope not at all! It surprisingly all stays relatively contained in the little c. I had serious doubts about it until I tried it and after the first month when you get used to it, it totally rocks!!

      • Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans June 18, 2011, 8:13 pm

        It doesn’t gush out. Its in the cup which you tip and pour into the toilet. Its fairly simple. Also it doesn’t sit too high up there so removal isn’t too hard.

        I used it a few times but I could always feel it (probably didn’t put it in right) and I gave up. One of my good friends uses it and loves it to death. She recommended it to others and they love it too!

      • Kelsey June 18, 2011, 8:29 pm

        Diva cup = best thing ever! You could even empty it in the shower if you wanted. I’ve used it for ~ 6 yrs and have converted over 25 of my friends. Its really not as bad as you think.

        • Caitlin June 18, 2011, 8:38 pm

          Oh good idea about the shower.

        • Courtney June 18, 2011, 9:26 pm

          I always empty mine in the shower! It seems to be even easier that way 🙂 I’ve been using it for a year now and haven’t ever had any trouble with spilling or having to reach up too far!

        • Katherina @ Zephyr Runs June 18, 2011, 9:40 pm

          Over 25 friends! I’m jealous… I’ve tried to tell my friends about it and they just kinda smile and nod 🙁

      • Marie June 18, 2011, 9:46 pm

        Just wanted to hop on this train and be the 80th person to recommend the Diva cup! You won’t regret the switch! Best invention EVER. (Also, I hope things work out with the house!!!)

        • Marie June 18, 2011, 9:53 pm

          Also, I agree with Emma– I was weirded out at first but by my second period using it, I was completely used to it. It is seriously so much more convenient and comfortable than tampons and pads. I also cut the stem off of mine, it was uncomfortable.

      • Kate June 18, 2011, 10:40 pm

        Another huge fan here- never really had either of those problems. It can be a little awkward to remove, especially in small bathrooms, but I will never ever go back, and I’ve been trying to convert people all over the place. I even blogged about it today! (on my TTC/TMI blog- not the training one!)

        • Ali June 18, 2011, 11:04 pm

          I cut the stem off mine too because it kept poking me and it felt awful. I actually prefer the Instead softcups (although not as environmentally friendly). By using these cup products, it has made me realize how little blood actually comes out each month. Your cervix is actually not that far up your vagina, so you definitely would never be reaching more than an inch or so up.

      • Maureen @ Notes on a Visual Life June 19, 2011, 12:22 am

        I’ve been using mine for about 6 months now. I was skeptical at first but it has been such a positive experience! I hate the idea of ever having to use tampons again. Although you will become VERY familiar with your, um, business. Nothing to be afraid of! Make sure to rotate it once it’s in there for the suction. Works like a charm! Good luck!

      • ashley@cookingforjohn June 19, 2011, 2:49 am

        diva cup pride! you will love it! not only is it way better for your body and the earth, but your wallet as well. you do need to get another model of the cup after you have kids though….

      • Annie@stronghealthyfit June 19, 2011, 9:17 am

        I’m glad you are going to try a Diva Cup! I’ve been using one for several years and absolutely love it. It’s just a different process than a tampon, obv., so you have to get used to that. Just remember how much better it is for you and definitely for the environment too!

    • B. June 19, 2011, 1:02 am

      I’ve used the diva cup before, but now I prefer the lunette []. To me, it’s more comfortable and easier to remove. I also cut the stem off too. Menstrual cups can seem really scary or gross at first, but they are amazing!

      • Emma June 19, 2011, 2:00 am

        I’m so excited you ordered it! I hope you like it…don’t judge it based on the first month I found that one to be hard to get used to it, but after that it’s ok. And you definitely get comfortable with yourself, but it’s a good thing and after a while you honestly don’t think anything about it 🙂

      • Caitlin June 19, 2011, 9:48 am

        Oh the lunette looks cool, too!

  • D June 18, 2011, 7:50 pm

    Dude, that sucks :(. I hope the sellers will work with you on this major issue. After all, it’s a buyer’s market right now. If you walk away, you just continue living in your current place for a little while longer, but the seller loses a good chunk of time in finding another buyer.

    I suppose it’s better to find things out sooner rather than later. My home inspection went fine, but on the walkthrough the day before closing, there was something wrong that hadn’t been accurately disclosed by the seller. However, by that time, there was little anyone wanted to do to resolve the issue. Because it was a relatively minor thing, I couldn’t walk away from the deal, and closing day was one of the worst days of my life. Everything is fine now, but I hated that that day was tainted. Hopefully, things will be on an upward trend for you!

  • Chloe (South Beach Girl) June 18, 2011, 7:51 pm

    It’s a good thing you had a feeling about the house, hopefully everything works out though & if not it sounds like you guys might have dodged a pretty big bullet.
    Today is also a napping day in my house! It’s gloomy here and perfect for being lazy 🙂

  • kristen June 18, 2011, 7:53 pm

    Im sorry. I have to say “everything happens for a reason”. So if it works out thats AWESOME! if not (again sorry) you guys will find something I just know it!

    Unfortuantly I went through this when lookiing and my cousin too. but it will work out! Keep your chin up!

  • Jen June 18, 2011, 8:10 pm

    Love the interpretative dance AND your name for the dance! 13.5 hours of rest = soaring creativity? 🙂

    Good luck with the house issues/decision – wishing you all the best (whether that means this house or another awesome opportunity around the corner)!

  • Jessica @ Jessica Balances June 18, 2011, 8:18 pm

    So sorry about your house issues! 🙁 such a bummer. Everything will all work out exactly as it should, though, so try not to worry too much even though I know that’s easier said than done. This too shall pass!

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss June 18, 2011, 8:22 pm

    Sorry to hear about the house. 🙁 That’s one of those “too good to be true” moments, huh? But when one door closes. another one opens!! 😀

  • Miranda @ working mom works out June 18, 2011, 8:32 pm

    Sorry about the house. I hope everything works out for you guys.

  • Allison @ Happy Tales June 18, 2011, 8:34 pm

    Holy moly… i just read all of the comments about the Diva Cup b.c i was intrigued by your tweet about it earlier and came over to the post to see what’s up (i’m slaaaaaaammed w/ an exam this wkend and have barely had time to read/blog). So glad I popped over… i am super intrigued by this divacup thing! Oh, and I’m also so sorry to hear about the possible deal-breaker on the house… but at least you are findind out the issues now rather than when you’re even deeper into the process — now *that* would be a true nightmare. I’d consider yourself lucky!

  • jazz June 18, 2011, 8:35 pm

    I love the diva! Blood doesn’t gush out and taking it out + putting it in gets easy after you learn. I must have saved hundreds of dollars as I’ve used it for six years!!

  • Andrea @ Onion in My Hair June 18, 2011, 8:42 pm

    If the house is meant to be yours, it will work itself out. I know that’s hard to feel that way now, but trust me. Sending you positive thoughts!!

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga June 18, 2011, 8:46 pm

    so sorry on the house situation. I have had real estate deals implode over bad inspection reports and it’s SUCH a heart-wrenching thing. You get your hopes up…to be totally let down. So very sorry, Caitlin.

    Even if they could/would fix things, do you really want to buy into all those ‘problems’ so to speak? Ugh. Not an easy situation.

    Hang in there!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin June 18, 2011, 8:57 pm

    Ugh what a bummer about the house! But at least you found out about the issues now instead of later! I hope everything works out for you in the end.

  • Alexa June 18, 2011, 9:17 pm

    One of these days I’m going to have to try making this Mmmm Sauce. It’s sounds so Mmmm.

    Sorry to hear about the house problems. I hope everything gets sorted out quickly.

  • katie @ KatieDid June 18, 2011, 9:31 pm

    oh I’m so sorry, I really hope it gets worked out for you. I laughed out loud at the pictures of you dancing LOL. Stocked pantries are the bestttttt, and mmmm sauce is even better. I made it once and literally had it on 3 meals a day until it ran out.

  • Katherina @ Zephyr Runs June 18, 2011, 9:42 pm

    I need to make that mmm sauce! I’ve been using this – on EVERYTHING…. I think it’s similar!
    I hope the house stuff works out for the best, whatever that is. And I love you a little bit for the interpretive dance, and the fact that you got photographic evidence of it 😀

  • Katherine June 18, 2011, 9:48 pm

    Lol love the dance 😛

  • Carol June 18, 2011, 9:53 pm

    Love the dance also!
    Best of luck with the house…everything happens for a reason!

  • Abby June 18, 2011, 10:17 pm

    That interpretive dance cracks me up! 🙂

  • Baking 'n' Books June 18, 2011, 10:27 pm

    So sorry to hear that! Remember – everything happens for a reason. Actually – I don’t believe that – but it sounds reassuring? 😉


    1) I want your long-haired pony-tail (alas, my hair drives me bonkers)

    2) I LOVE that tempeh – but never tried the Coconut one – only the “Sesame Garlic” one. Have you tried it? SO good! Salty and sweet…so bad…

    3) How often do you go grocery shopping? since I’ve moved, I’m much further from grocery stores – and the one that’s closest is in busy traffic – and super expensive :(.

    I “panic” though because I’m used to going to the store to get vegetables/fruits and yogurts, etc (yes, I eat this stuff by the buckets and run out quickly). But I can’t stock up on a bunch of it because a)it’ll go bad; and b) I don’t have the fridge/kitchen space..very very small.

    Any advice – anyone? kay, thanks 😉

  • Kat June 18, 2011, 11:07 pm

    I wrote last week about how we were under contract for nearly a month and hadn’t finished negotiating post-inspection issues. Well, on Tuesday we cancelled the contract. The seller basically misrepresented the house on the disclosure statement so the inspection revealed way more issues than we were anticipating. After over a month of going back and forth with the seller it was clear she wasn’t going to fix the issues to our approval (she wanted to use non-certified individuals, we wanted professional contractors doing the work)nor would she lower the price so we had to walk away…we just couldn’t bring ourselves to purchase a home we knew we would have to immediately pour money into just to feel safe in it. So we cancelled this past Tuesday and last night (Friday) we found a home we love WAAAAY more than the other one so we’re putting in an offer tomorrow. Who knows what will happen, but even just finding it made me realize how much things happen for a reason. Keep your head up and like you said, trust your gut! It will all work out in the end (I have to keep reminding myself this too!) Good luck!

    • Caitlin June 19, 2011, 9:51 am

      This makes me feel better. What were the issues with your house? I went to bed last night saying that we were going to walk away, and I woke up this morning feeling like I didn’t want to. It’s so confusing. I wish there was a clear answer.

      • Kat June 19, 2011, 11:36 am

        None of the electrical was grounded, there weren’t enough support beams in the attic and those that were there were bowed and clearly stressed under the weight of the roof, the bay window in the kitchen was only supported by a cinder block under the house and so it was sinking (it also had quite a bit of mold growing under it), insulation had been installed upside down in the basement posing a fire risk. Those were the things that we deemed unsafe…then there was a broken window and door, both allowing hot air to just freely enter the home (SO not energy efficient!), some of the siding had holes in it( apparently just from woodpeckers) but she wanted to patch them instead of replacing the full piece of siding. I could probably continue on with a few more things. Basically she hadn’t taken care of her home and wanted us to deal with that. It was priced well but not THAT well. She also was changing her story so many times throughout that whole month that by the end her dishonesty was making me just as angry as her unwillingness to address the problems.

        I think the willingness of the seller to work with you will be a huge indication of what you can expect if you choose to continue on. It became a 24/7 issue for us…constant phone calls and emails for a month straight, a different story and “plan” from the seller everyday. We were constantly back and forth trying to decide if we should walk away or not, so I certainly know the feeling! We didn’t lose our earnest money because we kept extending due diligence to continue negotiations. Everyone says to expect the unexpected but I really had no idea this is how it could be!

        (sorry for the short story I wrote!)

  • Amber from Girl with the Red Hair June 18, 2011, 11:56 pm

    When things go awry, all I want to do is sleep the blues away. It really does help!

    I made Mmmmmh sauce for the first time tonight but yours looks a lot greener than mine! Hmmmmm, I wonder if I messed up the recipe.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife June 19, 2011, 12:01 am

    Oh I love that dance idea 🙂

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing June 19, 2011, 12:51 am

    Sometimes you just NEED a lazy day like that!
    I hope everything works out with the house!

  • Lindsay Loves Veggies June 19, 2011, 12:56 am

    Mmmm Sauce goes with EVERYTHING! Love it!!!

  • Di June 19, 2011, 12:58 am

    I’m a personal trainer and fitness instructor and I’ve been using a menstrual cup for about 2 years. Love it! Empty it twice a day, done! Teach power pump, spin, lunch, clients, trx, yoga, dinner, empty, bed. Seriously it will change your life!

  • Khushboo June 19, 2011, 1:51 am

    Sorry about the house! Although it’s easy to say ‘everything happens for a reason’ I know how tough it is to see it like that initially! Good thing you have a bed and some Mmmm sauce to keep you company 🙂

  • Hayley @ Oat Couture June 19, 2011, 2:05 am

    Really hope everything gets sorted with your house! What a nightmare! And love the dance… I think it might catch on! 😀

  • Emma @ Getting There & Going Places June 19, 2011, 6:52 am

    BOO for the bad news! I hope it all works out for you guys!
    Sleeping for 13 hours sounds heavenly to me! 😛 I definitely need a 13 hour night every once in a while! 😉
    Good luck with the house!

    Just read all thos Diva cup comments, gonna stay away from that and just say good luck with the house! Hope the seller agrees to fix the issues. Such a frustrating and long process…

    LMAO at the interpretive dance.

    Sorry about the house news 🙁 Hopefully you feel better after your sleep?

    Sorry your house buying process has been so stressful! It’ll be worth it in the end when you have your place, but I know what a pain it can be! Hang in there, and I’m here if you want to get froyo and destress 🙂

    a giant batch of mmm sauce sounds like a perfect base for this week’s meal plan. hahaha!

  • Amber K June 19, 2011, 12:20 pm

    So sorry to hear about your house. I hope everything is resolved quickly and easily.

    Sorry to hear about your house! 🙁 If it helps, we had some pretty major problems with our house (cracked foundation, basement flooding, mold), that the sellers ended up having to pay to fix, but everything worked out for us, we have been living in our house for nearly 9 months, and haven’t had any problems! The sellers/their agent were even very difficult (think threatened lawsuit if we backed out of the contract), and it all worked out. Thankfully we had a super awesome agent who worked her tail off for us(and it sounds like you do, too). If this house was meant to be yours, I’ll bet everything will work out eventually. If not, there’s another one out there that will!

    I have *got* to make this mmmmm sauce!!!!

    And I am super super sorry about the house :/ Looking forward to reading your updates though!

  • Sara @ OurDogBuffy June 20, 2011, 9:49 am

    Sorry about the house issues. That happened to us several times. Lots of disappointment. 🙁 But it will work out for the best, as I’m sure you know.

    Sorry to hear you’ve hit a snag in the house buying process. House buying drama is the most draining and emotional thing I have ever experienced myself! I hope you can get it all resolved without too much hassle. The first place we tried to buy ended up having a major water leak in the basement, disaster averted! Then when we hit a snag with our current place we are thisclose to closing on, I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown. Hopefully things go more smoothly for both of us from here on out 🙂

  • Kellie June 21, 2011, 2:37 pm

    I’m late on the whole mmm sauce thing.
    Why is yours green and Mama Pea’s is light?

    Once in line for a show while visiting friends in DC, I convinced the people around us that I was in town for an Interpretive Dance conference. We then discussed how my specialty was American historical events. To this day, my friends and I crack up remembering how my pal said “you should really see her Boston Tea Party….transcendant!”
    Yeah, I’m that person too.

    Sorry to hear that you found something wrong with the house 🙁 I hope it all works out for you.
