Goals Schmoals (OR This is for you Catherine) AND Mean/Medium/Mode

A few days ago I was talking on the phone with my sister and as we were hanging up she said, "Post on your blog." For the past three weeks or so, each Sunday I set a goal to post on my blog that week. Quite obviously this has not happened. Perhaps at this point you are wondering if all my blog posts are going to be devoted to my lack of posting. Well, its possible. I'm not making any promises at this point. I would like to remind everyone that Erik started this blog without first consulting with me, so I made no inherent promises at the onset of this blog. Maybe everyone should email Erik. Email Title: Post on your blog. Email Message: That is all.

I would now like to change the title of this post to Mean/Medium/Mode. All of these are a way of measuring an average. When we listed our house on the market, our agent told us that the average market time is six months. We listed our house the Monday after Easter. Not quite four weeks later (Mothers' Day weekend) we received and offer on our home. After some back and forth, we now have a contract with a closing date set for on or before July 2nd. The inspection went well and now we are hoping that the buyers loan process goes well so that we can get this wrapped up. I can officially say that all those hours of HGTV I watched were not for nothing.

In other news Charlotte has officially started crawling, sitting up from the crawling position, and pulling herself up in her crib. What the heck? My little almost seven month old (on Tuesday) is growing up so fast! This is how I found her after one of her naps today.

wow! i can't believe your house went so fast- woohoo! and I can't believe your baby is 7 months old. Time flies when you're absorbed in your own pregnant misery :)

Wow, I can't believe Charlotte is doing all that stuff! Arden can't quite yet sit up on her own for any extended period of time. Ah well...I guess all babies develop at their own rate!
In case you're curious, I found the link to your blog via Melissa's blog. :o)

Yay!!!! My day is complete now. If you could just keep this up so I have something to read daily, that would be great. Charlotte looks so cute in that picture (where she's soaking wet).

I'm right there with you on posting to my blog. I just dont make the time to sit down and do it. I will blame it on our camera that has not been working for the last few months. Your girls are darling and we miss seeing you. totally envious about the house going to contract so soon. Hope all goes well.
