Everything is official! May 21, 2008

Filed under: house,Ladybug,me — Emily @ 7:34 am

OK, so I can now make the official announcement that we’re moving, because all inspection issues have been addressed in an acceptable way. 

So, anyone want to come over this weekend and help pack?

New Laundry room

We’re closing on May 29 (on both the sale of this house and the purchase of our new one) but we don’t have to be out until June 2.  The U-Haul is scheduled for the 31st. 

My OB wanted to induce on the 29th.  We came to an agreement that as long as everything was going fine with the kick counts (ow, oof, eek, yup, she’s ok) and the NST’s, that we’d hold off until June 5. 

In the meantime, Ladybug still loves “beanstalks.”

Life is crazy May 8, 2008

Filed under: knitting,me — Emily @ 7:56 pm

I’ll start with the knitting.  I finished up the stockinette socks a couple of weeks ago.  They fit.  I started the Smockie dress for Pigeon, but I’ve modified it for knitting in the round.  I know, crazy!

The other stuff is more about the crazy that’s been happening these past 3 weeks.

I found out on April 16 that my employment with Company A would be transferred to Company B starting on May 5.  Now that it’s after May 5, I can say that it’s basically the same job but with a different way of running things. 

But I feel like my job is very unstable right now.  I suppose that’s just a side effect of having one’s employment tossed around behind one’s back.  Not to mention that there are an overabundance of Company B’s employees locally.

And to top it all off, we received 2 offers on the house yesterday.  Just when we’re questioning whether or not we want to move (see the above instability feelings).  Neither offer looks like it’s going to go through because we’re now very steadfast about the amount of money we’ll take, and (the other big consideration) these offers are both with closing dates after my due date.  Heh, like we’re going to move 3-14 days after I give birth.  OK, since I wrote that bit 5 hours ago, we accepted an offer.  We’ll sign papers tomorrow!

So, we’ll see on that.

In the baby news, we had a second sonogram this week to get a better head measurement.  Pigeon was very uncooperative the first time.  This time, the head measurement went well, but the US showed that she was a little small so now they have me going in for Non-Stress Tests twice a week.  On top of the weekly OB appointments.  JOY.

Anyways, I just wanted to check in and hopefully not come across as being in a negative mood. 

Irises from Grandpa's farm

The irises we transplanted from Grandpa’s farm 3 years ago are blooming for the first time.  Poor things — they’re going to get dug up again in a few weeks.


Mother Nature, Homicidal? May 2, 2008

She missed us again.  She’s been trying to get us with ice storms, earthquakes, and now more tornadoes and 80 mph winds.

We’re all OK here.  Not in the best of moods, but alive.
