My hubby is the bomb!

I totally scored in the hubby department and I just had to share with you all just how great he is!

Today, he made a big sacrifice and sold his surround sound system!!!! Y'all this, is a big deal for him. (okay, I know I just said y'all, but when I tried different words, it didn't sound right!....I have officially lived in SC for too long!) He loves his movies with the "theater" experience and I know that it was a big deal to part with this. He even did it all on his own, put it on craigslist, and there you go...a day later, we have our application fee and them some!

We have both been thinking of things we can part with to get some extra adoption money, me selling some of my stamp sets; him, selling some video games. Then he decides he can get rid of the speakers. In a month or two, we may try to have a big yard sale and call on local friends to possibly donate their "junk" to sell, but for now, we are looking at our own stuff.

I know he will miss it, he was a little sad :( Truth be told, it was cool, but we just didn't use it very much. It's hard to watch a movie like 2012 (last night) with the bass blasting when the kids just went to bed 20 minutes ago and they aren't quite asleep. One of them either wants to know what we are watching or someone complains that our movie "woke them up".....as if they even had time to fall asleep!

So anyways, we will be filling out our application (between painting) this week and sending it in! It is just so crazy that this is really happening! My mind is turning with all that needs to be done : spring cleaning for homestudy, getting the girls room and the 3rd bedroom the way we want them, and funding the adoption. If you think of us, pray as we make some decisions with the application and decide on which fundraisers to start with.
