Holy Shit.............Casa Crazy Part Deux

the move from HEll if finally done. We have moved and we are finally in our new awesome casa. The place is pretty ridiculous just in how much more space we have - now it is only 2,000 square living space which for other parts of the country is not much but for us here that is like a mansion. We also have a great backyard for the pups and GG has her own friggin club/play house in the back so it gives us all a little more breathing space. I also have a front area that we just cleaned up and in the process of looking at idea for landscaping. We are thinking of going low maintenance becasue we try and conserve water in this state and because we have quite a few tree in the front if we add grass all that is going  to do is die in patches. Ideas so far for the front......I am also going to buy a couple of anorak chairs in a fun bright color to place in the front - we have a really nice neighborhood so it would be fun just to set up and hang out in the front - we also are right next to a all male HS the same HS many NFL football players have graduated from - I guess Tom Brady went to this HS so many of my cougar friends are ready to check out the am also landscaping the back and we are probably going to do the same thing front to back but I will be adding a major fire pit and a huge sectional of couches, 8 seat dining area and my large Buddha fountain for days were I need him to help me out - the weather in these parts is pretty amazing  so having an outdoor entertaining area is key...

Among of the craziness GG started her new preschool because we moved in such a weird period of time just before school starting I had to take what I could.  Lucky we found a great Montessori right around the corner. I could only get her in twice a week for now hopefully another space will open up and she can go up to 3 days a week...She loves her new school the only thing we have had a problem with is that this little fashionista is not digging the uniforms. I am not a big fan either but you know what it saves some time in the am when little ms thing is going through her choices of what to wear I am down. We are now in October so it is time to start breaking out the Halloween decorations. This is my favorite time and our little one is also ready to party evil like. Social schedule is packed every weekend this month is booked and we are having fun getting to know our new hood and some neighborhood folks. All in the all so far everything is been A OK except I am missing my blogging friends......More to come.......I AM SURE!

Can someone please.....

Yep that is right this is my house bitches 
help and send over a de stresser? ....I know this is not a word but it is in my lovely messed up head as of late.  I love blogging because it gives me the opportunity to get stuff off my chest/brain and it does make me feel better - I use this blog to bitch about whatever might be bothering me that day for this helps me with my anxiety. I have had anxiety for the last few years it got especially bad after my mom passed as you all know. I have always been an up charged person so when I have allot of stuff going on the anxiety seems to pop up more often. In the last two years with the help of working out, acupuncture, vitamins, cut  in alcohol, eating right and no more smoking I have pretty much taken care of the A monster. I refuse to take half a Xanax unless it is truly know shaking in the corner as I suck my thumb necessary  - j/ that being said the last month has been insane and with the buying of a new home as a game of Gladiator bitch slap, I am now it the full thrust of packing a house. Now GG goes to preschool part time however the other part she is taking the shit out of the box as I am trying to place shit in the box. Oh boy oh boy she thinks this is a fun game and mommy is ready to pull her remaining hair out of her skull.  Oh did I fail to mention that we added to the mix some re modeling on the new house which is 45 minutes away and having to do this via camera phone has been extra special????? Thank God that my dad is near by and he also has the best contractor on the world on his books so we know shit is getting done. Tomorrow I will be at the new house and getting a bunch of high tech stuff installed as well as watching some dudes strip and repaint our hardwood floors. Landscaper will be there as well as the painters to get some more fashion forward colors on the walls....So I will be one busy lady.....In the mean time I am expected to keep my current home in tip top shape for viewings for people that have no clue what the f*ck they are looking for...well let's just say this little philly snapped yesterday because I have had enough. I called my realtor and told him to pull the house from viewings until we move next week. I have one more viewing today and then I will be done having people going through my home while I try and tame and get  2 large dogs and a toddler out the door.  To anyone out there if you are considering selling your home WAIT until your ass is out of there and not living in it....It is hell when you have people in your house while you are trying to live yours. Do not put yourself through the stress. NOT WORTH IT. The good part is that we had two offers one was even before the house hit the open market which we refused becasue we had not had an open house yet and another one the other day that was a little below asking however we will not accept that...I believe the gentlemen was at his cap so unfortunately we had to say no...If this place does not turn over in the next 30 days I will be renting it out...I already have two prospects who will give me full asking rent so we are good.

I am also a little sad because I am finalizing a bunch of contacts here in the Marin County. I saw our dog groomers yesterday and they cried when I told them that this was their final grooming here. They got some super extra attention and were given many treats and kisses. Had to say our good bye to our awesome pediatrician and my dentist. We also have to make our rounds at our favorite restaurants/grocery/clothing establishments.   GG's final day of her current preschool will be Friday we will be having a little cup cake party for her there as well as a super extra play date with her BFF.

I am ready for this move because change is always good but I am sure going to miss the views and being so close to the ocean. I will miss this awesome group of people that I have met and will remain friends with but it is also great to get away from some of the not so genuine people that I have met along the way......oh well

c'est la vie

15 things you just don't really need to know but I am....

going to tell you anyways.....So as you can see I have been a  really shitty blogger for the last few weeks OK months. I have been shopping for a new home which we have finally found and closed on...Motherf*ckin YAH as well as putting ours on the market which means everything has got to look spic and span at all times and with a toddler and two dogs it is like pulling wisdom teeth.....It was like some kind of NASCAR torture to go through this buying know I keep hearing recession here and recession there and I really do not know what the the f*ck happened in the last few months but we could not find a house to save our lives...With my keen investigative resources and talent I was able to locate a property and with the proper amount of stalking was able to wiggle myself in before the home hit the open house market again. Made an offer they could not resist and the rest is house hunter history. I am telling you I missed my calling - private investigating is the the route. So i WAS crushing around reading some of my fav bloggers and came upon this post from Ronni at Anywhere is - check her out here and decided to try this little fifteen facts about me since I have been so behind in the times. So here goes nothing

  • No picture will ever be posted of me on this sight - just not going to happen so I have replaced my pic with this - Yah one can dream right?

  • I love all late early 80's late 90's super models - I think the models today look like little boys with long hair...If I was a man I would want a woman to look like a woman - most men tend to agree with me. 
  • Could move to Napa Valley tomorrow and open a vineyard - I love it in wine country this is the only place on earth were I automatically relax as soon as I cross the area line 
  • OBSEssed with hand bags - especially Chanel, Gucci and Celine......I think I might have a slight problem...maybe just a little 
  • I despise liars and people who make people believe they are something they are not....Be real.....
  • I love to travel {if done right} and have seen quite a bit of the world 
  • Used to have a huge chip and diet snapple problem and kicked both of them in the last year 
  • I used to worry about what people thought of me - allot - I now do not GIVE a shit ......
  • LOVE fall - however it is Cali. fall so it is bearable - cannot stand the too hot heat anything over 75 degrees is too much 
  • I love black and leather - I wear very little color and like to look mono chic - too many accessories clutter and outfit
  • I do volunteer work for the soldiers and will be doing more this year for them as well as hospice - it took me while to make a decision to help out in this area since I lost my mother to the awful disease
  • I hate the color pink 
  • I don't craft and will never craft
  • I love love love to cook, bake and entertain I am damn good at it 
  • Addicted to gossip magazines yes yes I am
