random thoughts...

it has been awhile since i have posted anything real on here... so here are my random thoughts for the day!
* Girl Scout Cookies! I know that I am not a GS anymore, but I sure act like it!! I sold over 100 boxes of cookies for my friends little girl!! Crazy!! I just talked to people at work to see if they wanted any… yup. They did!! Wow! Lots of cookies! Good thing I am pacing myself!!
* We went and looked at houses again this week. I am not too thrilled about any of them… considering a couple, but nothing really screams at me. One of the houses is in a nice neighborhood and area. Very established and quiet. The house just got marked down pretty low and it is a 4 bedroom 2 ½ bath. The problem is that the front of the house has settled and you can feel the unbalance while standing in the rooms. There is a pretty big crack in the kitchen ceiling and down the hallway. Our realtor (who is a very good friend of mine) is trying to find a building contractor who will just walk through it with us to see if it is safe and/or worth fixing up. If it can be fixed, how much would it cost? We are wondering if we could add that amount onto the amount of the home loan and then pay someone to fix it. We would also have to have the entire home re-carpeted and painted. So, nice house, but lots of work! I am just not sure that it is going to be worth it in the long run! I am having doubts this week. Hopefully we can figure out something soon. In order to get the tax credit we need to be under contract by 30 April.
* In the spirit of moving I have started bringing home boxes from work! To pack with! It is very overwhelming to look at all of the junk/crap/cool stuff we have! And then to think about packing… it scares me!! So I figure if I pack a little bit every weekend, I actually might get it done and not be too overwhelmed! That is my goal: 3-4 boxes a week. Last weekend I packed the books on my bookshelf. I am not reading them right now and I figure they will easily fill up a few boxes!! Good plan, huh? I also think in the next few weekends I can work on my scrapbook room a little too. I haven’t really been in the mood to scrap, so I might as well get packing!! And then… maybe some of the upper kitchen cupboards! There is stuff up there I am not even sure I knew I had!! Hee hee!
* I had another Dr’s appt on Monday. It went well. I have only gained 10 lbs since I have been pregnant. (I am over 5 months along!!) That is pretty good, but I don’t wanna gain too much more since I am so overweight as it is. As long as the baby is healthy and strong, that is an ok thing to do. Most women gain 25-30 lbs, but for me that is not a good idea. Anyway, the heartbeat was strong and everything looks good. I am supposed to get another fancy ultrasound in a few weeks so that can look at the spine and heart again. I guess the tech wasn’t able to get very good shots of the baby last time cuz she was so wiggly. I am feeling her more every day. It is fun to know she is in there! Well, I think that is what I am feeling! I read in my book today that she is almost a foot long and weighs a little less than 2 lbs. Cool….

* Have you heard about Bountiful Baskets? It is a food co-op where we can get a huge basket of fruits and vegetables for only $15! They are a weekly thing and I love it!! The website opens on Monday afternoons and we pick the food up on Saturday! I missed it last week, but I am getting one this Saturday! The pick up locations fill up fast!!

* We are starting to take some Pre-Natal and Baby classes next week. There are about 7-8 classes that the hospital offers for mom and dad to be. We signed up for most of them and will be going to them over the next few months. Usually it is just an evening class 6:30-8:30. I am excited! Some of the classes include: early pregnancy, parenting, infant safety, breastfeeding and birthing. They even include a tour of the hospital so we know where we are going when the time comes! Since we are so new to this baby thing, I am hoping they will teach Kevin and I something!

* Kevin hasn’t had much luck with a job. He is still hating what he is doing. I feel so bad for him, cuz he is so miserable. He has applied for a few places that are a little more local, so that is good.
* I have really been in the mood for solitaire again!! I have to play everyday!!
I will do better about updating more!!
