What could be more fun than moving while 6 months pregnant? Moving while 6 months pregnant and THEN moving again 9 months pregnant!!! I bet you didn't see that answer coming!
When we found the perfect house, for a steal as a short sale -- 6 months ago, we knew it was going to be a long process. But this house is perfect for us. And the price makes it something we cannot walk away from. So began the waiting game.
Amazingly, no miraculously, while waiting we sold the loft!! And then moved into the apartments from hell. 3rd floor while pregnant. Neighbors who won't stop complaining about Miles running. Animal control visiting us twice because our dog is outside too much (in the shade with water - the horror).
But thanks to our AWESOME realtor (we seriously love you Bev) we have just signed a lease to rent the house we are trying to buy!!! So, until the bank decides to start the short sale process with us, we get to move in and start living in a house!! (It was really hard not to write that last sentence in all caps.)
The house needs a ton of work - most of which we will not do while renting it just in case things don't work out with the sale. So the situation is not exactly ideal, but a house with FOUR bedrooms and THREE living rooms and an office. And a garage. I can't even begin to imagine what that's like. You people with houses -- don't take them for granted. They sound lovely.
I don't ever ask for prayers - but I need everyone I know to pray we get to buy this house. Because moving again with a newborn might just put me in the looney bin. Also please pray that I don't give birth in a moving van. At this rate - that is entirely a possibility and it sounds less than sanitary.
We officially get the keys on the 15th and need to be out of the apartment on the 30th. And I'm due smack dab in the middle on the 20th. So, that should be fun. I have absolutely no idea how that's gonna work out - I just know that it somehow has to. And I'm not even sure if having the baby early or late or on time would be better. But, again - it'll work out. Somehow. Pray for me.
In other news - my mom is coming to visit next Wednesday - thank GOODNESS! I cannot wait for her to get here! Moms make everything better!!
And lastly (just because I think it's hilarious) I posted this picture on my DMB post about discipline on Monday. I didn't have any pictures of Miles in time out so I totally had to put him in a 'fake time out' for the shot. I said - "let's pretend to be in time out!" and he said "sworry momma" and then I put him in the corner and he was so confused. I was laughing and smiling and he was alternating between laughing and looking miserable. So I promised him some candy and after I got a few shots I gave him his gummy vitamins.
Mother of the YEAR!
