Yet again

We found a house we really really liked. This time we even filled out the application. By the time our realtor had dropped off the applications to the listing agent, they had rented it out. It seems that last night when she called him to ask a question about the application fee, he neglected to tell her that the owner already had other applications he was considering.

I'm so tired of house hunting I could scream.

No hedgehogs??

So, we were ready to put in an application on a house. Quirky house, great back yard...... owner doesn't want hedgehogs living there. Stupid, obviously doesn't know what a hedgehog is.
It seems that she's nitpicked every application. Hubby and I decided that she just doesn't want kids in the house, and will find legal reasons to keep them out since she can't come out and say it that way. Oh well, her loss.
3 houses to look at tonight.
I hate house hunting.

House hunting, grrrrr

So, we spent the weekend driving by houses that we have found online. Some really nice ones, in fact, we could have been done at the first house. However, when we called the agent, we found that the house had rented the day before :(
We found that at every house we really liked. There was one other that we called the agent standing in the front yard and the agent never returned our call. I have also sent said agent an email asking for an appt to go look at the house. It's huge, with built ins and a pool!!
We looked at a few more today and one of those we really like. I've emailed that agent also.
I'm tired now, and somewhat discouraged, I HATE house hunting.
Maybe I can get out at some point this week and go look at those two houses.
Have I mentioned how much I hate house hunting?

The Shrimpy Bandit

The Shrimpy Bandit is my youngest redhead. Isn't he adorable? He was playing around last night after eating all the Cajun shrimp that Hubby and I had peeled for him. Normal 7 year olds don't really eat shrimp from what I've been told, but my kids are far from "normal" and the younger two will eat just about anything. If you have shrimp on your plate and Monster #3 does not, then beware, especially if he's within arm reach of your plate. He also steals calamari and most fruits and vegetables.

Another New Family Member

So, we told the oldest monster that if he saved up the money, he could buy a hamster. He saved up for the cage, the hamster, the food and a few accessories. We already had bedding from the hedgehog that we weren't using anymore.
Her name is Smokey and she is a gray Djungarian hamster, which from what I've read means she's a Russian winter white hamster. She's very light in color, like a wisp of smoke (hence the name).
She is slowly getting used to the monsters who are getting used to having such a small mammal in the house. Previous to this, the only very small animals we've had are toads and frogs.

On a side note, while at the pet store, Hubby and I looked at some new frogs since our dart frog recently passed. We're looking at the glass frogs, also known as clown tree frogs. They are very colorful and like to climb the sides of the tank. However, Hubby is also liking these very small mice called hoppers. Usually, hopper mice are used for feeder mice, but Hubby says they look like mini kangaroos, which intrigues him, lol.

3 days now with the same headache!! It goes away for a bit (with a little help from my friend Advil, and his brother Advil PM) but always comes back just as strong once the pills wear off.
My main question is............. Why is it when my head is throbbing the worst that my children are the loudest??

More Facebook Fun!

My Haikoo(SM) Zoo pet, Prickles

Ok, so I have no life, I have more apps that I keep up with on Facebook than any one person should. However, I take solace in the face that I turn down quite a few requests from people to add new apps, just about every day, lol. That and I know people with far more apps than I have, lol.
