BSRB Chatter Weekend Edition

Good morning ladies! I am in some kind of parallel universe where Howie is STILL sleeping. Usually he's the first one up in the whole house. I'm trying to enjoy it while it lasts

What is everyone up to this weekend?

Ok, off to post before someone else starts a thread. I'll be back!

Re: BSRB Chatter Weekend Edition

Morning!

I am not sure what we are doing this weekend...maybe some cleaning and some talking about finances etc and buying houses and such...we are looking to buy mid-march-ish so we need to figure out the logistics, we cant sell this place with this much stuff in it (we have a LOT of stuff "junk") so we either have to buy another place first THEN sell this place *or* maybe put a bunch of stuff in storage or something...not sure how its gonna work.

DS also woke up funny today...no fever but he was just laying in bed, got up, made it halfway down the hall and laid down in the hall...then wanted me to put him back in bed so I did

Not sure if he is sick (again?!) or just overtired or what...trying to get him to eat and/or drink to see if that helps.

Re: BSRB Chatter Weekend Edition

Morning mamas! Lots to do today. I think my dad is coming over tomorrow and my house is a wreck. Cody room, bathroom, and floors all need cleaning.

Shannon- I think I would sell the house your in now before buying. Even if you had to do some major decluttering and maybe even storage. It could take a long time to sell with the market so bad. We are considering putting our house up for sale again this summer by owner. We listed it last summer and had it sold in 2 weeks. The buyers backed out of the contract on us at the last minute. Thankfully we hadn't started building our new house yet.

Yea we are in a unique situation though because a lot of people are looking to downsize into something the size/ price range we are selling and looking to sell stuff the size/price range we are looking in.

The other problem is this place needs some stuff done (paint, patched holes etc) that would require moving a whole mess of stuff (we are talking living room) and I just dont see how thats possible with the kids here...we dont have any other space to put them during the day so I dunno.

We are also giving thought to moving into a new house, fixing up this one and then renting it out while it is on the market so that way at least we can pay the mortgage with the rental $$...we were paying $40 a month less in rent just down the road for a house with one less bedroom and one less bathroom...

I dunno, lots of logistics

Yuck Maya, I am sorry you are feeling so trapped. Thats no fun at all. Seems like there are a lot of upside down mortgage people these days. I hope it improves soon!

I only feel trapped in the total lack of space sense. There is no basement and functionally its only a two bedroom with no basement....the amount of junk my husband has that he refuses to get rid of is out of control.

If we had a basement we could make it work but just isn't space. Plus when DD gets into a toddler bed she would have to move into DSs room because the room she is in now (with her crib) is *totally* unsafe for a child to be in unless they are contained.

Re: BSRB Chatter Weekend Edition

To do today:

Local CD shop for a couple of thirsties covers, small fits but not very well, need a medium now
PO to ship off some diapers I sold
Dust, I cant handle the amount of dust in this house right now!
Vacuum
Mop
Catboxes
Bathrooms

I would also *like* to clean the baseboards and clean up all the cobwebs, I need to figure out how to clean the ones that are 20 feet up at the bottom of the stairs...we havent got a ladder that high and even 6'4 DH on top of the ladder with all the vac extensions wont reach it..if I have to walk down the stairs and stare at those much longer I could very well lose my mind.

Re: BSRB Chatter Weekend Edition

Hi, ladies! I'm going to try out my new double jogging stroller today at the mall with my sis, my friend and her son. I was so looking forward to this weekend so I could use all my new dipes (BSRB TF, 2 BSRB UF, Sbish and some new GM's). I put Isaac in the Sbish with a a fleece/PUL cover last night, and he was dry this morning.

We're thinking about putting our house on the market soon, too. We outgrew ours a little faster than we planned.

Oh and I wanted to share too, very exciting.

My DH isn't a very big compliment-er, its just his nature. He has always been that way

Well last night I was changing out of my jeans and into my *comfy* fleece pants and he told me to wait a minute and asked me where all my "extra" was on my rear

It was pretty funny. Thats as close to a compliment as I will get so it made my night, hehe.

Sitting on the floor all day with the kids has hits benefits because then when its time to get up for something (like a naughty 2 year old) I am working my buns/ thighs out too...hehe.
