blooming like geraniums

Feeling so much better today! There's nothing like being able to swallow without pain. I am just sitting here waiting for two emails. One stating that a house that was supposed to close 10/19 still doesn't have a free and clear title. The other an offer for a listing that I am going to lose in two days. If I get and accepted offer before the deadline, I might even get paid! Happy day!
It's so strange.. earlier in the summer I had NOTHING going on. I was working every day and still ... nothing. I had some potted flowers on my porch all summer. They weren't growing right. Not enough blooms. I even babied them. nothing.
I finally brought them in last night (it got down to freezing) and did I mention they are blooming better today then I have seen them all year? Beautiful!
Even if the real estate goes to pot.. at least I have pretty flowers today!

Woke up this morning with an aching throat. Looking in the mirror and I have spots on the back of my throat. GREAT.
If I could get Nathan's father, Sean to come over and watch the boys while I go to the ER (just to take a rapid strep test) that would be better. I could get some antibotics and we would be back in business. I'd have better luck of letting my throat cure itself!
Was supposed to meet up with some friends from PA.. guess we'll have to reschedule again.
Sipping on my tea.. wish I could add some rum to it and go to sleep.

As I sit here contemplating sleep, I look over and see the completely unfinished spider costume for Sam.. He was going to be a cowboy and decided he HAD to be a Big spider.. I've been working on it most of the day, in between brownie making and pumpkin carving. Pumpkin carving with metal spoons and a one year old/three year old combo is just asking to get hit in the head repeatedly!
Liz even convinced me to make a costume. Can you guess what it is? I made a sign that says "GO CEILINGS". I am going to make up a little cheer to go with it! Any idea? *the ceilings are not a professional team* .. I am going to be a Ceiling Fan. Ha!
It was a toss up between that and a "leaf blower" (tie a leaf to a ball cap and when prompted, blow the leaf).
Just thought, should probably make the boys cute little trick/treating bags for all their *my* (chokable) loot. We will just have to see what everyone feels like tomorrow!
I volunteered to be the Sunday School Teacher tomorrow.. why do I do those things?! My children do not sit still during any part of the church/Sunday school services/programs. I guess this means I really have to go tomorrow.. It wouldn't be so bad if the church started earlier. The boys, Nathan I should say, gets up much too early. By the time we should be going to church it is closer to lunch/nap than I prefer..

Hello everyone and anyone who has stumbled onto my blog. Since this is my first entry, I probably should introduce myself! My name is Tiffany and this blog will be about my very *interesting* life!
I have two beautiful sons, Sam (3) and Nathan (1). I am a single parent. My brother, Matthew, just went to South Baghdad yesterday for 15-18 months. He is an Army Medic in the 3rd D. Infantry.
I sell real estate with Real Living Realty One and work part time at St. Anne's Church as their secretary.
That pretty much is a quick summary of my life!
Today, actually in about 4 minutes, I have a house closing that I sold. After finishing at the church, I have to stop by the mechanic and figure out why my car does not want to start. Hopefully he will figure it out quickly so I can get to my house in time to watch Lilly. If not, Angel will have to bring her to the mechanic and I will take her with me as I finish.
