thank you mr. president

That's right! Dudley and I received our tax credit for first time homebuyers! (Don't think this is me bragging, but I had to let you know after my post yesterday I felt a little relief). It came on the perfect day when I was down and stressed and wanting to pull my hair out and wash my hands of this house.

It was all worth it and better when we got back to the messy apt (see cartoon below for an example), I checked the mail to see this little beauty in there with:

TIMOTHY D CARTER AND MARTHA G CARTER


What a perfect ending to the night. We celebrated at 10:30 pm with some freshly baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and a cold glass of milk.

Were they slice and bakes? If not, I'm VERY impressed. Yay for the tax credit! I'm sure we'll end up having to pay it back some way or another, but for now, it's sweet!

Don't be deceived... I had a package of choc chip cookie mix, and then added oatmeal to it. But it was the first time I've used my mixer in I don't know how long.
