Next ... my pants. You know, the ones I take pictures in every month? I think it's about time for new ones. They are now so baggy on me that they drag the ground when I walk so the hems are starting to fray and frazzle and the other day I even got them stuck over the heel of my shoe, didn't realize it at first, and walked a hole in them. I could just cut the length up a bit to compensate but they're baggy around the hips and waist too. I used to be able to tie the draw string at a comfortable size and then use the elastic to pull them on/off without untying them but I have now become too small for the elastic. I have to tie them so tight that there is no longer any stretch which means I either tie them loose enough to pull them on/off without untying them but then I feel the need to hold them up when I try to put my cell phone in my pocket, or I have to untie and retie them a dozen or so times a day. It is becoming tiresome. It is awesome news, of course, but I hate buying new clothes ... hate it. Even if they are smaller than the ones I had before. You can see in this month's pic what I mean ... my feet are practically drowning in pant leg, all you can see are my toesies.

So I'm holding my arms weird in this picture because my bra is now also too big and the underwires dig into my armpits. Lovely huh? P.s. I'm posting this in the right margin with a weight of 229.0 since we know that Monday's weigh-in was an annoying fluke.
And finally, keys: Yep ... that's right. Finally, 14 days late, we are closing on the house and getting keys TODAY! I am a somewhat jaded individual so there is this part of me that thinks 'I'll believe it when I see it' ... like some horrible bomb is going to drop out of the sky and blow up my house right before I get the keys or something. But the president of my lending agency called to congratulate me yesterday along with the Lender, the Processor, and the Appraiser so I guess that's a pretty good sign that it's official. I'm on pins and needles just waiting to hear from the Realtor today. We have all of our cleaning supplies boxed up and ready to go and first thing after work tonight we're going to go over and start scrubbing the place down from top-to-bottom so that we can paint. We've scheduled utilities to be transferred on July 23rd and are going to get a U-Haul and some scouts to come help us move everything in one fell swoop. Don't worry, I'll be sure to take before and after pics for the blog! :)

Demolition: Snackers ripped out the carpet in what will be my office and then I used a scraper to get the glue and old padding off the concrete and swept the room.
