Waah Waah Waah, I miss blogging, I promise to blog more. Then I disappear for another month. No more promises, bitches, I’ve got too much going on here. Stop pressuring me.
So we got the house. We found out a few weeks ago and closed yesterday. Jamie and I celebrated by bring takeout back to the new place and stuffing it in our faces before rushing home to relieve the sitter. Fun times.
They left a damn trampoline in the yard which sucks for us since they won’t insure us if there’s one. So I posted that shit on Craigslist and had to take the post down ten minutes later after getting 8 emails. Talk about stalkers.
Now we have to: fix/replace the flooring, install new interior doors and hardware, new entry doors, patch and paint every single wall and baseboard, scrape the popcorn off of the ceilings and clean like mofos. The trick is doing all of that while living 50 minutes away and being responsible for two rowdy toddlers that we have to cook every morsel of food from scratch for. Any ideas?
Oh, and did I mention that we plan to be living there by Xmas? It is a daunting task but we have to get all of the paint/chemical fumes out of there before the kids move in because of their chemical sensitivities.
Earlier this week, Graham started rubbing another school mom’s belly and saying “there’s a baby in there!!!”. I really couldn’t tell either way if she was pregnant but I apologized and told her we’re still learning couth in our house. I went back to ask the teacher if the other mom was expecting and luckily she was. Holy fucking hell that was a close one.
Me: I lost 30lbs since the last time you were visiting
My sister-in-law: Really? I can’t tell
And you wonder why we have a rule that out of town visitors have to stay in a hotel.
Graham is totally into the princess thing lately and is learning all of their names when they play dress up at school. Yesterday he told me I was Cindy-rella and he has renamed Elliot Princess Pea. I think it’s adorable and I totally want to get pictures for future blackmail.
