cnf2013, hooray for a snow day! Hope the appointment goes well!
We have nothing special going on today. H is on thanksgiving break from school, so hopefully he does the last of the thanksgiving shopping today. I'm excited to get my two days of work done with so we can start prepping for the holiday! This is the first time in six years I've had this much time off around thanksgiving - I usually only get the day off or gave to work, so it's a treat 😊
I'm planning to take Wednesday off and see the Fantastic Beasts movie. I am so excited!
We had a nice visit with my family this weekend. It was way too short. After that fun weekend and a week of being home sick, it was a bit of a disaster getting her out the door this morning. Margs is a disaster too. I can't put her down. She wouldn't eat solid foods yesterday and the crying is just up another notch. I would have thought with the antibiotics that she'd be feeling better by now, not worse. I think she might be getting two molars though. OMG you guys. I want to cry and give up for the day and it is not even 8:30

Woohoo for a short week! We have to work until 12:00 Wednesday, but then we get a 4.5 day weekend!
EG's birthday party is this Saturday and it's so bittersweet. I'm super excited for it and I'm so proud of my little almost-one-year-old, but man I can't believe it's been a year already. Plus AF is expected this week, so extra emotional due to that.

No holiday week for us here. Boohoo. Hopefully I can do some good online shopping. I have been putting stuff in carts all over the place.
I leave next Tuesday and although I am looking forward to it I also dread the travel/jet lag. My mom will arrive a few days after Cam and I do so looking forward to seeing her. Life here has been pretty good lately.
I have managed to keep busy, Cam has been on a good schedule, and we have a new mom with an 18 month old. It's been great watching Cam interact with him, even if he enjoys snatching toys away. Yes, my child is the worst snatcher ever!
Waiting to hear if my husbands visa is getting extended. I cant imagine it not but it's always a possibility since we have been here for so long. Part of me wants them to deny it but I know that would put us in a crazy situation. I don't want H to be pushed into a job that does nothing for his career. He told me when we were on vacation a few weeks ago that the company wants him here until end of next year, he told me before it would be mid year. I was pretty upset about it but have now decided it will be okay. We agreed if I get pregnant then we will leave. My crazy life! Ugh

There's no school this whole week but my H has to work so we're hopefully going to get out and do some serious playground time. After I figure out if the kids have any cold weather clothes that fit.
We did a lot of adulting this weekend. Went to look at some houses and really liked one. Talked about it extensively and ultimately decided to let it go and to hold off any more house hunting until after the holidays. We will probably be listing our house in February or March and will be selling before we look for something new. We could afford to carry two mortgages short term but I really don't feel like scrimping at Christmas! Or eating into savings and having to rebuild it.
It's always such a load off when you make a big decision!!
I'm at work today and wednesday, the realtor is coming tomorrow to take marketing photos of the house, I need to get the living room/kitchen/dining room in top shape tonight. I've polished the floors in the rest of the house, and I'm depating if I want to go through the effort of moving furniture and carpets in those rooms (and keeping critters off the floors while they dry, the other rooms were easier because I could clost the door).
We have a snow day! Over a foot deep and still coming down at blizzard like conditions. Tomorrow is my only day of work for the week. So pumped!
Ellie has her one year doctors appointment today. Booooooo shots.
Sooo jealous of your snow!!!!
I'm pumped! I love the snow.
The storm conditions are going to die down late tonight but it's not supposed to actually stop snowing until later Tuesday. Some schools have preemptively cancelled for tomorrow too because I think they must realize what a losing battle only one day of school wedged between a snow day and a five day break will be. I hope my district figures it out too!
I have a win so far today- A pooped and managed to keep it in the diaper. Yay for maybe one less outfit to wash. And maybe this new diet working? Or maybe, just maybe he is getting over whatever illness this was?? Lol. Short week here, but so busy today and no motivation.
Hello! I need to go back and read the thread, hopefully later today, only have a few minutes right now - work is so busy. Today I have major mixed emotions. I'm happy b/c I told my boss this morning I'd like to go to part-time next June (the earliest we can get C into daycare and also when work should slow down a bit after some big deadlines) and she was supportive. Phew!
I'm sad b/c my cat is going home with FIL today. I will miss her so, so much but I know it's what needs to happen. We have all been so stressed out lately with this situation.
I'm also annoyed b/c MH texted that C missed his morning nap b/c of something MIL did (he said he'd explain more later); ugh. I don't even know if I want to know b/c I'll just be even more annoyed. She always acts like it's inconvenient that C needs diapers, bottles and naps (nearly all of which MH handles anyway) when they are there. Like he should be able to just go 6-7 hours without any of those things so they can play with him and pose him for a thousand pictures the whole time. I'm tired of them leaving our house a mess on Mondays and expecting us to feed whoever all shows up each week, too. These Mondays are so stressful for us; another reason it'll be good to put C in daycare and drop down to part-time next year, MH will go back to work 5 days a week and we'll stop having multiple people in our home all day. Gah I sound like a grinch.
geners, FWIW I would be annoyed too just judging from what you've told us. I mean, if you want to visit/care for the baby then yes, that entails feeding, changing, etc. I'm glad the chat with your boss went well, though!
