Oooh weee. These last couple of weeks have been just crazy and stressful and *whew* I need a break from life! Today’s my birthday, and though birthdays aren’t really a big deal to me anymore it’s still fun to think about how much has happened over the past year. Shit, so much has happened in the past MONTH…so here’s a quick update.
On the house front – we sold our house in 3 days. We got more than we wanted, and it really couldn’t have gone any better. It was a few days of stress, keeping our house totally spotless and taking the dogs to daycare every time while juggling various projects and work and such. But in the end, that definitely paid off. The problem is – we’re having a hard time getting a NEW house. Every house is a multiple offer situation here in the healthy real estate market in San Diego, and it seems no one wants to choose the buyer who has a contingency of needing to successfully close on their own home. So our house is sold, we’ve made offers on a few places, we’ve been passed up for people who don’t have to close the sale of their home before closing on the new place.
Today we received our first counter offer on a beautiful home, but they countered all 3 offers and we still don’t know if they’ll accept us. Hopefully we’ll find out tonight. I hate my fate lying in someone else’s hands! I’m trying not to think about the home too much, because I made the mistake of falling head-over-heels in love with a property a couple weeks ago and we were passed up without even receiving a counter. I’m not going to beat around the bush here, I was in love. I cried the whole day when I found out we didn’t get it, because I’d made the mistake of imagining us in the space, planning out how fun it would be to live there and raise our baby there. It’s definitely the benchmark property and nothing has come even close to its uniqueness (and the 1 acre of beautiful land didn’t hurt either).
On the pregnancy front, I’m doing really good. The exhaustion has mostly tapered off, and my Diclegis meds are still holding my nausea mostly away. In the last week, my tummy has really popped out. Today I look gigantic, and I know it’s only going to get bigger. I’ll do a pregnancy update soon, but I feel like my child is growing too fast for my belly skin to keep up! We had an anatomy scan last week and little man did not cooperate, so they couldn’t get a good look at his face and his heart. If y’all had seen me crawling around on the floor and running around doing jumping jacks while trying to get him to turn inside me, it would have been a hilarious sight. So, we have to go back in a couple weeks for another ultrasound which I am not going to complain about! The more times I get to see him, the better! I’ve started to get pretty uncomfortable when I sleep at night, so I’m thankful for my Snoogle pregnancy pillow. And I’m still living off Prevacid and Zantac for this horrific acid reflux. I know that doesn’t get any better throughout pregnancy, so it’s just something I’ve learned to deal with at this point.
I didn’t get to see or ride Rosie last week because of rain and house hunting, but the previous week I had a wonderful ride on her. She’s such a great girl, and I’m thankful I have someone riding her and spending time with her a couple times a week for me. She’s enjoying her new pen and though I wish I could see her more, I’m glad she’s being taken care of.
Next time I write here, I hope to have nothing but good news to report. 🙂---------------
