b_schwartz09 We got it!!!!! 14.2 acres and a house! I am beyond excited!!! Just need the house to pass a couple appraisals and an inspection now. 2w
  •   lauratanaka Congrats Becca!!! That is fantastic news!! Looks like a beautiful place and property. 2w
  •   b_schwartz09 @cheers_and_screams thanks! And thanks for the prayers! 2w
  •   b_schwartz09 @azombieee ha not quite. We do have to put in the furnace ourselves and go 3k over asking price tho. Still a win. 2w
  •   b_schwartz09 @lauratanaka thanks! It has amazing potential. Definitely needs paint and floors an maybe a wall taken out but it's gonna be gorgeous once it's had a bit of a face lift. The person we bought from is the original owner who built it in 1960 and I don't think they had updated anything since then. it's awesome though. 2w
  •   lauratanaka @b_schwartz09 wow that sounds like an incredible project!! I can't wait to see the transformation. So many possibilities :) Please document so the rest of us can live vicariously through you!! 2w
  •   b_schwartz09 @lauratanaka yes! I'm gonna do a lot of before during and after photos and video for us. I'll definitely be sharing on here too 2w

b_schwartz09 Pulling out our hair over here because these sellers don't seem to want to sell. No other offers but they keep dragging their feet and changing the terms. Worst sellers and worst realtor I have ever heard of. Thank goodness for our realtor and lender who are helping us navigate these psychos. 3w

b_schwartz09 Waiting to hear back whether or not we got this house and acreage. I can't focus on getting anything done until I find out if I should be excited or devastated. #torture 3w
  •   azombieee I'm anxious for you lol 3w
  •   b_schwartz09 @azombieee gah still no confirmation. These sellers are weird. There's a furnace issue that is messing with the financing/insurance side of it but they refuse to fix it even though we offered to cover the cost with our purchase amount. tomorrow's project: finding financing that doesn't mind a wood burning furnace. 3w
  •   azombieee Oh give me a break! 3w
  •   b_schwartz09 @azombieee now they are refusing to sign any sort of offer. It's like they don't wanna sell. 3w
  •   azombieee What in the frank...... Are they giving reason why lol this is ridiculous 3w
  •   b_schwartz09 @azombieee no reasons. They dragged their feet long enough to get another offer given to them so we had to raise our offer 3k. these people are the worst kind of $h!t. 3w
  •   b_schwartz09 If this place wasn't perfect we would have bailed days ago. @azombieee 3w
  •   azombieee What a joke. 3w

b_schwartz09 There's not enough coffee in the world for mornings like these. My kids are really good at reminding me that I don't want any more children. #nighttimeparenting #notforthefaintofheart 1mon

b_schwartz09 Bored in the dr office selfies during G's well child today. This chunk weighed in at a whopping 25 lb 12 oz and 31 inches. 😮 2mon
  •   maggieemma1 That is impressive!!! 2mon
  •   b_schwartz09 @maggieemma1 he cracks us up because he is such a solid little guy. I'm pretty sure that he and Ava are the same distance around their torsos ad shoulders. just a little tank. 2mon

b_schwartz09 Mom to Mom sales: where you can spend only 45 minutes and $70 and come home with the next size and season for two kids. Summer, we are ready for you. 2mon
  •   mommabrower Was this at the one in the holland outlet mall?! Darn it, I knew I shoulda went! 2mon
  •   b_schwartz09 @mommabrower yeah they have one in March and one in sept. I go to every one and buy our entire next size/season. I have basically spent about 50/kid/season on avg so 100 bucks a year to clothe each kid. 2mon
  •   maggieemma1 Please explain how this works. Is it privately organized? 2mon
  •   b_schwartz09 @maggieemma1 I think so? They are very common around here so I've never really looked in to how they are set up. Basically it's an indoor garage sale specifically for kid clothes/toys/maternity/kid furniture. There's another one that seems bigger that I haven't been to yet called a Just Between Friends sale. I think JBF has a more national presence. 2mon

b_schwartz09 0 for 2 on driving into or out of our driveway today. This is why I never go anywhere in the winter. 2mon
  •   ericaguthaus @b_schwartz09 I got stuck today too! Solidarity is already making me feel better about it 2mon
  •   hillary.patrice That's our whole road/neighborhood!!!! @b_schwartz09 2mon
  •   schwartztimothym That's why you gotta get that hamster power! Lol. 2mon
  •   schwartztimothym ...or just a 4WD 'burban. 2mon
  •   b_schwartz09 @mamagoot @hillary.patrice that snow yesterday was just awful! It couldn't make up it's mind whether it wanted to rain or snow. 2mon
  •   b_schwartz09 @schwartztimothym oh man if there had been a baby blue vintage burb for sale that had 4WD you bet your ass I would have been all over that. I will never have a hamster car. It's basically the opposite of the styles I love. I'm a vintage Jeep/Bronco/Wagoneer/burb girl. Or a 60s era mustang but that's more of a pipe dream. 2mon
  •   b_schwartz09 @schwartztimothym tbh though this was the snow not the burb. I've been through two bad winters with this thing and this is the first (and second) time getting stuck. I think it's because the snow was so water logged and then the plowed crap on the end just made it all the worse. 2mon
  •   schwartztimothym @b_schwartz09 yeah, that crap yesterday was wicked. Thank god it was at least warm enough to keep the roads cleared for the most part. And yeah, I could never see you or Ben driving a car like mine. Lol. If/When I ever move closer to work and don't need the mpg or practicality, I'll be back in a truck or 4-wheeler of some sort. I definitely don't drive my car for the enjoyment or "cool" factor. Haha. 2mon
