Same!

Coy - aw, it's so cute when they coo like that! Phoebe just likes the sound of her own voice so shouts and squeals a lot

Patrice - going back to college is a great idea! I've been contemplating finding a course I can do at home, but still not sure what I'd do yet.

Shradha - yep, I'm always posting pics of little miss in my journal

Hey everyone. Just an update...

DH and I are in contract to buy a house!! It's a 4 bed (possible 5th bedroom if we ever wanted to turn the extra living space/office area into a bedroom) three bath, one car-stall garage on the circle part of a cul de sac . Fenced in yards, plum tree in front. Backyard has a vegetable garden & a dog run in! (Dog run is an area fenced in within the fence that is for putting your pet in there instead of letting it poop all over the backyard LOL).

I offered only 4,000 short of what they were asking, but the sellers countered saying they really wanted the asking price. Normally, if someone is going to be a stickler about the price and not even budge we would have walked away from any other offer on that house, but we loved it enough to buy it for the asking price. So, we get a verbal acceptance, and then we send our signed half of the contract to them, stating that everything will be said & done all by January 31. Well, then the lady goes "I'm only going to sign the acceptance if they get everything done from me signing the contract to closing in 10 days and I want it in writing". I was furious. We had offered to pay FULL ASKING PRICE but she was trying to make it hard for us? UGH.

So, I told my Realtor "We are asking the full price. She has until 5 pm to sign (legally) and if not, we are not going to re-new our offer. Tell her realtor that we have a 2nd house in mind that we will be offering on if she is going to be like that. Oh, and have her realtor tell her please that this kind of behavior will scare off any serious buyer"

....... 15 minutes later my realtor tells me the lady signed "accepted" on all the forms.

That must have scared her to have her realtor tell her I was a serious buyer but wasn't going to be pushed around. You either want the full asking price, or this person walks. With full asking price, seller has the upper hand... and who knows if you will ever get your asking price again.

Shradha-Thanks.

Emma-Yes im going back to college. After dealing wit httc and everything else..i think i will be a great midwife and be understanding to the women and their issues about ttc because I have been through it all.

Ashley-Glad you didnt budge and wasnt going to be pushed around. We would've did the same thing if it was me and DH. Congrats on the house.

AFM, im on cd4 today and so far this AF has been on the light side but im just waiting it out to see whats going on. Cant believe 3 months have came and gone already. Today I started month 3 of the bcps. So time is flying by. Also today was the day DH had to leave to go back to the base He is on his way back now so he should be there in the afternoon. Before DH left, he sat his mom down and gave her rules for the house. But at the end of it all..she is going to do what she wants. Thats pretty much what she told him and we talked about it and he was like, dont let her boss you around and just like he told her..im the boss of the house now so if she has anything to say or do she has to come to me first. So atleast DH and I got an understanding. I cant wait until I can be back with him again. So now its back to taking care of the household.

Shradha- you are in your 33rd week! Eeek! Yay, it won't be long now...how do you feel? By now my hips were really starting to ache from all of the spreading but not sure if that is because this was my 3rd baby, or...

Ashley- wow, the house is an amazing achievement! I love the way you play hard-ball We had to behave similarly when we bought our house.

Patrice- college is an awesome idea, I think you'll be a fab mw--and great field of study!!

Laura- I am amazed everyday how much Xander is growing! I hope he's feeling better...have you taken him to the doctor? What a tough little guy! How are you feeling?

Msperry- how are you feeling? When is your next doctor's appointment?

AFM- well, it is sort of our family tradition to take family photos every year in front of the Christmas tree...but for the last couple of years it has taken forEVER for me to get that organized, people together, etc...I'll be all set and dh will say something to the effect "not today" or "maybe this evening?" Then this evening roll right on past...well, needless to say last year I waited, and waited....and waited. FINALLY we got our pics taken.

In March.

lol! I know! So I am not waiting around 3 months with that crazy tree plugging up my living room. Not with 2 very rambunctious kids, one huge reclyner...etc. I need my space back! So I think I will take it down today. I am not seeing dh making anymoves to get ready for pics so I'm gonna take it down. But then I agonize...this is Aeryn's first Christmas! Maybe I'll just prop everyone up in front and not care if they are half asleep or still in their pj's....or wild hair! lol

I think I have enough wood cut for the day and I start school again today lol! I am considering having my academic instructor just hit me with the hard stuff now as I am getting bored with easy school assignment...I want my hard core criminology back lol

So my "trial" on the 9th has been changed to a "hearing"...I wonder what that means exactly?

Coy-Thanks.

Msperry-Cant believe your 13 weeks already.

AFM, im on cd6 and AF left the building yesterday. Im hoping that this is how my AFs are going to be from now on. On cd5..i didnt have any light bleeding at all so in reality..it only lasted 4 days. Which is what suppose to happen so im happy about that. For 4 days..i had light bleeding and then it just ended. So hoping the bcps are finally working their magi and finally getting in the system. Today is relax day for me. MIL hasnt moved in yet still so thats good and DH and I have just been planning for the future so we shall see. Nothing really to report because havent really been up to much ever since DH left to go back to Connecticut.
