Life With Wee People: House hunting little minion style...

Life With Wee People: House hunting little minion style...

If you go house hunting with Stephen, the Blur Minion the first thing you're going to discover about my 5 year old is the fact that he will expect you to pick homes he can ride his bike to. He likes having people he knows move within a 3 mile radius so he can visit (silly grin). We recently finished doing our community bike ride / mommy jog (about an hour ago) and are still spoofing about our romp through geriatric surburbia. We're trying to find something interesting for sale to photograph and send to Jen.

Tomorrow we're checking out West Melbourne and Indialantic to scope out houses and possible office space. Shorty gets there will be a car ride so I'm indulging him today by letting him play TomTom with his bike. There are a lot of For Sale By Owner properties available and a significant number of people trying to unload their undeveloped lots. Everytime he spots a yard sign Stephen automatically wants to go checkout a house. I had to explain to Shorty "Garage Sale" is a whole other kind of sale (which doesn't require house hunting photographs - LOL). Jen can figure out what she wants to see when she gets down here.

I also have to call Sana and see what she's been up to. I'm hoping I can get her and Tamara to come down here for vacation. I will be bugging Nydia, Stacey and Cindy to come for a visit too. I really miss my gal pals and my cousins. I definitely owe Yvonne and Marie several phone calls... 

The neighbors across the street stopped by to give us a Christmas card which reminded me I have to go to the post office (again). I have a massive amount of packages and cards to get out. Also, we haven't put the lights or Christmas tree up plus we're still wrapping gifts (yes, we've been mad busy and are still behind schedule - sigh).

The kids have been having a lot of fun and are clueless about what hasn't been done. Stephen has a lot of energy for a 5 year old and sometimes I wish I could borrow a little (said the hyperactive ADD mommy - LOL). Noah is riding his scooter through the house and Shorty just talked Mike into "going for a walk." Translated: he rides his bike and hubby keeps up (LOL).

Gotta go. Noah now has Rango playing in the living room so I'm taying put, blogging in the garage and going to fire up Skype so I can FB/e-mail my gal pals and see who is up for a bit of social media mischief. We have a new Kim Harrison book tour to drool over and schedule a couple of KH Events playdates for. A Perfect Blood is coming out and we have to pick our states/cities to hook up and collect more hard cover author swag. Pssst... Book club bookies have digital and physical copies of our fave books. In my case multiple copies (LOL). ;-)

Wanna come out and play? Here's the KH Signing Etiquette for the newbies: http://kimharrison.wordpress.com/signing-etiquette

I have cousins near Kim's tour stop here (and I can go see my Mom and Dad in SC when I'm done fooling around in GA):

Atlanta, GA:
Saturday, Feb 25: Eagle Eye Book Shop
2076 North Decatur Road; Decatur, GA

Miami is on my bucket list. I've never been to Miami so Sunday, Feb 26 in Coral Gables, FL and Monday, Feb 27 in Palm Beach, FL look really, really good. I'm on Skype plotting a fun loop-de-loop book tour joy ride with my ActiveRain blogging buddies. We will post the Mojito get together when we figure out which Miamism review determines where we will be hanging (evil grin). When it comes to Mojito reviews Inez rules (LOL). ;-)

My mind is in a blur right now ... it's late and I need to recharge the batteries. Have a great night.

Hi guys! Kids are amazing little buggers (LOL). We're plotting our day and blasting music. They are very excited about visiting people while on Christmas break so I have to get in gear and make a lot of phone calls today.

Vern, they definitely have a fresh perspective that can keep you rolling in laughter. ;-)

Richard, we were up almost all night playing table tennis and watching Thomas the Train. OMG - who knew there were so many episodes of that series??? Holy cow (LOL). :-D

Laura, when they're not clearing the cobwebs out they'remaking you a wee bit crazy (silly grin). ;-)
