Well well, in the last 10 days, a lot has happened! We moved out of our condo and we are at my parent’s house. The condo still has a lot of stuff left in it so I need to make it back and still have the final cleaning to do on it, so I don’t think it has quite hit that those days are over. I had one shift so far at work and the drive was long, but it wasn’t miserable. I also haven’t had to go downtown from my parent’s house again, so it hasn’t really hit me how far north we are again.
The house hunt continues! We actually almost put an offer in on a house, but then my realtor asked if we wanted to go back tonight to look one more time. Jon got Andrew (his friend) to meet us there since apparently he was a home inspector before he moved here (he’s also an engineer). He found a ton of stuff wrong with the house and we just kind of decided we don’t want to bother with it. I would consider a really low offer, but I guess the seller had already declined a low offer before. There is a house that I’m going to see tomorrow in my parent’s neighborhood that isn’t even officially on the market yet and doesn’t even have a price set, so we’ll see. I still think we may be just too far north. I was so in love with a house we saw yesterday too, but there were a few things that we didn’t want to deal with (a kitchen renovation and a huge tree stump growing in the driveway, plus a garage downstairs so we would have to carry the car seats upstairs EVERY time!). I loved the location though… I am also still a bit hesitant to jump into anything because I really would like to save up a little bit more.
However, living with my parents is already annoying! Maybe it will get better since I think most of my frustration comes from not having a “home,” but we will get more organized. We’re still living out of boxes right now. Our clothes are just laying on the floor. We have just been so busy since Sunday that we haven’t put stuff away yet! And Rascal will get declawed soon enough and be allowed out, so he won’t be stuck in our bedroom. I did search for a stupid veggie peeler for so freaking long today though and I was starving, and then I dropped my huge tub of yogurt and the bottom broke and yogurt went everywhere, and then I opened the cabinet and my dad’s stupid bag of popcorn fell into my f’ing yogurt bowl and got yogurt all over it. Like, REALLY?! And we have no good place to change Jackson during the day other than my parent’s bed. And if I want to shower when he’s awake, I can no longer slide his highchair along our wooden floors (we had felt pads on all of our furniture) to the bathroom or into the kitchen. I have nowhere to contain my crawling baby.
Jackson had his 6 month shots today. He was horrible after. He was so tired but cried for so long, even when I was holding him. I was so frustrated. He never does that! He finally fell asleep and thankfully I decided to pump right away even though I was early for a pump, because he ended up only sleeping for 30 minutes! SO FRUSTRATING! I kept him home from daycare though because he seemed so sleepy after his shots and I wanted to love on him. Nope, never again. Despite how obnoxious he was, I still miss him and want to go cuddle with him! But I’d never wake the beast! And he started crawling in the last week. He can sit unassisted for short periods of time. And today we started baby led weaning and I gave him avocado and about had a heart attack every time he stuck the whole wedge into his mouth.
Not even sure what else to say! My mind is so fried. Last week was busy with work and Sunday was busy with the move. I feel like next week will be stressful (a lot of work, the closing, and I have TONS of schoolwork) and then the following week I go to Lake Tahoe/Yosemite, which I haven’t even started researching!
Anyway, I’m so tired. We just got home at 8:30 tonight from the second showing on that house and Jon went to have some beers with Andrew. I ate an entire frozen pizza for dinner (I’ll regret that later when I start sweating and my heart starts racing) and now I’m about to go do my last pump, watch a TV show, and go to sleep! I have another showing at 9am tomorrow and then need to get some serious schoolwork done.
Know what I find annoying? I don’t think I ever did this, but if I did, forgive me. I was once annoying. And if you do it, well, it’s nothing personal. I do a lot of annoying stuff too still. I hate it when people say “eats” instead of food. Like, Jesus de Cristo, you had “Weekly Food.” Or “Weekend Meals.” Or anything. Really, I don’t know that I ever would have even cared about it, but I feel like it’s such a blog fad to use that word and it just seems dumb. I hate it almost as much as I hate 10,000 selfies per day (sorry selfie people).
