I know I’ve been horrible at keeping this updated, I’m hoping to get back to something like a regular posting routine again. Until then, here’s some updates:
We sold our house! Well, I guess technically we have a contract for our house. But! Buyers! Who want our house! Yay!
- We have a new house! Although again, it’s not final. But we found a house that we’re very excited about, and so far, all has gone smoothly. If you want to see pictures, I have some here (click on the picture of the house to get to the album):
- We’ll close on both houses on June 11th. We’ll have 24 hours to vacate our house, but take possession of the new house immediately. That’s certain to be a relaxing and quiet day.
- I had a major, hormonal breakdown the other night, sobbing over my impending loss of my gorgeous kitchen. I like to think that I’m not one to be so concerned with possessions, but the thought of my granite counter tops, my lovely lights, my tile backsplash. It was too much for my hormones that night. I’m better now, but I’ll always miss my kitchen. Before we move, I’ll write a post dedicated to my favorite room of this house.
- The pregnancy appears to be going well. I’m into the second trimester, in that annoying stage where I have very few symptoms, but don’t feel movement often enough to not occasionally freak out. We’ll have the big find-out-the-sex ultrasound at the end of this month.
- I’ve had a couple of people ask me if the pregnancy was “planned or a surprise.” I feel a little strange answering “both,” but it’s the truth. I can’t claim it wasn’t planned, since we’d been trying for nearly a year. But really, after 6 or 8 months, I started feeling like we were just going through the motions until we reached the point where we could go back for treatment. So yeah, it was a surprise. A very welcome and wonderful and hoped for surprise, but surprise nonetheless.
- Zoe continues to be awesome and amazing. She was a real trooper during the whole house selling ordeal. Putting up with having very few toys available, and a very disrupted schedule. She’s very concerned about what will move to the new house. Today I reassured her that her shoes and her books would be moved.
