I think I'm having an out of body experience.
AM I WRITING A BLOG POST OR AM I WRITING A BLOG POST?!?!?????????
You guys are partyin', right? Crickets? Anyone? Bueller?
Well, it seems I get the massive blog itch right when something massive is happening in my life. Clearly I have the totally charming need to barf all my personal information onto the entirity of blogdom but I think I'm ok with that. And I think I'm kinda just ready to be back, maybe? No promises...
So, would you like a briefish life recap? Ok, sure.
Fact 1. Still pregnant, v v pregnant. Almost 33 weeks to be exact. I think I've gone to the OB a whole 5 times and I'm perfectly fine with that. This baby BOY is kicking and rolling around and I'm getting fatter and larger by the day so I'm feeling like everything is a-ok.
Fact 2. BOY! It's another boy. At first I was bummed because "expectations" is my middle name these days. But then a dear friend told me to snap out of it, that my boys were not just babies and ugly boy onesies, that they were going to a live whole life, together. And one day I'll be sitting on the sand at the beach seeing them surfing together or whatever and what I will see is my little wolf pack of dudes, all just a little over a year apart, and I will be so grateful for them all. And you know what? She is right. I am so excited to meet this little one.
The other day Kirby suggested "Horace" as a name if that gives you an inclination as to how we are proceeding on that front. -__-
Fact 3. We bought a house.
What? Why would you go and do that? You are 30somethingish weeks pregnant with your seventh baby and all. What's wrong with you? But guys, the thing is... we bought THE house. Like, the best house ever. It even has a dreamy, romantic story attached that I'll save for another time but it's like the COOLEST BEST OUT OF MY LEAGUE house that could ever possibly be (financially) remotely *in* my league. And by the magic of the heavens, we made an offer on it and they said yes.
By even more magic of the heavens we were not forced to make our offer contingent on the sale of our current house, but the owners of the new house wanted a 60 day escrow anyway so we thought- sweet- we can TOTALLY handle this! We put our house on the market and within the first week had 3 offers above asking price. MAGIC OF THE HEAVENS!!!!
Guys, isn't life perfect?? SO PERFECT!!
Well, then... over a month into escrow and on the day we had scheduled to close on the new house............ wait for it.....
We fell out of escrow.
On our current house.
So now we own two houses.
***not in the plans***
We don't have to pay our new escrow until July but, homies, we are on the clock. I sufficiently freaked out for a solid three days this week but now I am in a p chill WHATEVER, JESUS, OKKKKK zone which is... better than anxiety zone.
But will you guys say a little prayer for us? We need to sell this little puppy rill quick. Thx.
Fact 4. I can't allow my stress-moping to detract from how absolutely wonderful it is that we bought this house. Both K and I feel like we stumbled upon a little slice of heaven. It's just beautiful. And super impractical (2 bedrooms lolololllll). But that should just communicate to you the extent in which we love this house. I would force my kids to sleep on the porch in order to raise our family in this house. JKJKKK! Don't freak out on me. We can work out another bedroom sitch cause the house is big enough for that so it's juuuuust fine. I specialize in finagling impractical situations in order for them to work in my favor so, worry not. Mostly, it's just pure beauty to us. Inspiring, rejuvenating, happy, quiet, forever kind of house that we truly were not expecting... all those words, etc.
So, that's where we are. New house, old house, moving, selling, stressing, etc.
Where are YOU?
Here, I hope. Missed this barf-space.
