It's official. We have bought our house! I already have a long list of projects I want to do. Is that normal? I haven't ever been able to do "projects" before. I'm mean what can you really do to your apartment? What's the point? So, we are moving all this week. We didn't want to leave to one day, its worth the little bit of rent that we'll have to pay (5 days worth).

Moving Soon!

Okay people, I need to get the pictures on here quicker. Some of you are so amazing with you blogs. I'm a little lazy myself. I need to repent and get more pictures of my girls on here (I know Jodi, I need to be better). But the girls were really cute with easter eggs. Savannah is at that awkward walking walking stage, she's so cute. Sydney is obsessed with ... well... she's just obsessed (disney, candy, tinkerbell, you name it). I'll have to put pictures on here soon. But we are sort of busy with the buying a home and moving thing.

Okay, like I said, we're moving rather soon. Hopefully everything will go okay with closing. With an older house and government grants, we get to jump through a few extra hoops. But soon we will be enjoying home owning (and all the good and bad that comes with that).

So, who's reading this? Please leave a comment. I was trying to figure out who I knew in the different cities I got hits from. I'm just curious. So, please indulge me.

We're under contract

We finally found a starter home. Its nothing compared to some your homes (I've been in some of your homes so I know), but we're poor and houses are expensive. We figure that we can live in this house for 5 years then look for something else (the home-start grant requires you to live in the home 5 years before you get the grant completely forgiven). The house is in Layton, its a bit older (built 1955), but we really had a hard time finding something built more recent in our price range. We will be moving to the ghetto of Layton, but that's no big deal. We live a ghetto of Layton right now (at least we won't share walls with our neighbors anymore). The nice thing about the house is that its complete refinished inside (that was a big seller for us) and it has a huge kitchen (a big seller for Lindy). Sydney will actually have a garage to run around. We're excited.

Of course we're not done yet. We are having our home inspection of the place next week and we're still trying to get everything ready with the financing. But our closing date is March 29, so we'll be moving the first week or so of April. It's not so far from where we live right now so moving should be really easy. This will be nice because it will give us a little bit of time before baby number 3 comes along towards the end of May.

Anyway, no pictures yet, maybe after closing.

New Lost Episode "The Constant"

Okay, here is another geeky Lost entry. So, was that a wild episode or what?? It was my favorite for the season so far and it ranks up there for the entire show. What did you guys think? I thought it was funny that the "flashback" wasn't typical of their normal shows. Where are they going with this show. It feels like they have a definite direction this time. (Sometimes in season 2 & 3 we were always sure about that).

Okay, so some things to look at in this episode. Penny's dead bought the journal from the Blackrock, the boat that ended up on the island that we see in the first season. What kind of connection does he have with the island? Some thought they saw Ben sitting in the back row at that auction, hmm, I'll have to watch it again. So, has Daniel done the time thing a little already? He's brain seems to be a little fried and they made it a point to mention that he wasn't protecting his head. Oh, and why did it take Penny so long to answer the phone? She knew that Desmond was alive because she spoke with Charlie (so sad, :( poor Charlie).

The "lost" people admit that Charlotte's (Charlotte Staples Lewis) name is referencing CS Lewis, maybe referring to Narnia, where there are two worlds that are connected by the wardrobe.

At any rate, after watching "The Constant" my wife and I could go to sleep, too much to think about. What do you guys think? Any theories?
