spiffy you would think they would do that but i bet you that they wont. I was soo mad she didnt even tell me. Yesterday i just texted her to remind her the kids are coming and then she text and said oh im sorry im not available tomorrow i have to work at my other job!!!!!! OMG i am soo mad! SO no if i didnt text her i would have went to drop my kids off and no one would have been home.
Im sorry that your bils alarm woke up Alia that sucks when they get woken up too soon. Im sure you cant wait to get your own house!
Rojo: This is soo exiting. My question is the same as spiffys did you temp before now?
Haking: Im sure your DH will be just fine with the two of them. My dh was a nervouse reck when i first left both of them with him. I cant imagine how he will act with this one. lol I am switchin day care hopefully soon. I just saw there is a place exepting infants so im hoping she will take my son at least and i can get my daughter into preschool. And well when this lo is born we will have to go from there. idk $90 a day for daycare is alot!!
Afm today i will be cleaning the house before we go to glenwood next week.I will also be calling that daycare to try to set something up. I set up my kids easter baskets! So im very exited this year because in the past natalia never really understood christmas easter. Well she had a blast at christmas when to talk to santa and all the good stuff! im soo exited for easter this year.
Duejan, I hope you can get into that daycare too! Some places give a discount for second and third child. I'd ask just to see if they would work with you because $90 a day is a lot! How many days a week do they go to daycare?
Spiffy, I totally understand the frustration of living with in-laws!!! It sucks sometimes. How long do you guys plan to live there? DH and I plan to stay at his parents till March next year! Yuck!!! But that's the only way we can pay off stuff and get into a decent house to have room for 3 babies. I'm excited but at the same time I hope I can hang for the next 11 months!
Rojo, I hope your temps stay up! Only 4 days till test day!
Haking, we're living with them until January because we need to pay off debt so that we can buy another place. We already own a fourplex, so we lived in it for a year, but then moved here so that we can rent out the unit we were in and make some money, although we're going to have to evict one of our tenants now because she hasn't paid in two months, so there goes the extra cash we were counting on. When we leave here, the goal is to buy a duplex and live in half of it and rent out the other side, because DH wants to make it so that our own house payment is always covered by rental income. It's a great concept, but unfortunately, it involves moving a lot. I told him that we have to buy our permanent home by the time Alia is in first grade so that she can have some stability and not have to switch school all the time like I did growing up. So only 5 more years of constant moving around!
Spiffy, yikes that sucks having to evict them and lose the money. We have a house in KY that we bought before moving back to California and we rent it out and make a few hundred on it a month so it helps. But we do have some debt from moving that we want to get rid of and since we did decide to have a third we want a big enough house for them.
I often wish we had our own place and am tempted to move but I know I won't be happy if we do and we would be pretty poor renting and throwing away money!
haking they will have to go 3 to 4 days a week. The bad thing about that is some of those days are weekends and they dont opperate on weekends. So now im all confused again. I wish i could just be a sahm and not worrie about working and daycare...but i cant
spiffy that does suck having to evict those people. That cant be any fun at all. I hope you find a good tennant that will pay you rent.I hate that i have to rent and just throw away that money but right now with my dh in school we have no choice until he finds a agreat job
Thanks, ladies. We're not looking forward to having to evict her. Her husband lost his job last year, and so we tried to be lenient with them (accepting payment late, so long as we got it eventually), and then her husband left her, so we continued to go easy on her, and told ourselves that as long as we got the payments for one month by the end of the next month, we'd let her stay. But now it's gotten to the point where she still has money from January that she hasn't paid, and she won't answer phone calls or texts from us. So we posted a 3 day notice of eviction on her door a couple days ago. I really hate having to be a landlord, and am glad that my DH does most of it.
Duejan, I hope you can find a daycare solution for your kids. Oh, and I was just wondering, what part of Colorado are you in? One of my best friends just moved to Miliken, so I was wondering if that's anywhere near where you live.
Hmm...is there any family that could watch your kids on the weekends to help save money? I do totally understand your frustration with working and having to deal with daycare. Some days when I'm super frustrated I just wish I didn't have to work but for now I do. Does your DH work weekends too? Or is he only going to school full time?
Spiffy, it does suck being a landlord sometimes because your torn between doing what is right and fair and then your feelings of not wanting to totally screw the person either. We hired a company to manage our rental and it's got it's pros and cons.
