Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

So, it's been awhile and I really have to get myself back into the blogging.  Lots and lots has been going on and I have been super-busy.

I sent in my papers to my lawyer on Friday.  Now she files and we get the ball rolling. 

The boy's dad and I are still living together for now, but I put a bid in on a cute little house still in the same town where we live.  The only problem is, it's a short sale. 

For those of you who don't know what that means; it's where the people selling the house cannot get out of it waht they owe and are selling at well below the price they need to pay it off.  I actaully went lower than what they asked because it gives me a starting point.  Now it's up to the bank to review my offer and see if they will take a loss on the house.  They can come back and counter with me, or they can come back and state they will take no lower than an amount that is out of my reach.    The funny part of all this is that the "short sale" can take up to 6 months for the bank to decide yes or no.  I am hoping and praying they only take a couple months.  I love this house and it would be perfect for me and the boys but I am not getting excited because it may fall through.

The boys seem to be taking this all in stride.  Owen is too young to fully grasp what is happening and Evan, at almost nine seems to be fine with it.  We sat him down and explained everything to him and have let him know that if he has any questions at all he can ask them.    right now he is angry with his dad and I have been doing all I can to not to say anything negative, but he is not dumb.  He understands his dads actions are a direct reason we are splitting up and that his dad is not the nicest person in the world. 

Right now I am just foucsing on the boys.  Making sure they are happy and healthy.  I have been making lots of lists.  Mostly I am just trying to get through the next couple months until I hear something about this house and praying that it's God's will that it will soon be mine.
