My level of frustration hit a new high last night…I officially had my first meltdown due to the house and TTC.

My life has been so incredibly hectic lately, I barely feel like I am coming and going in all directions pretty much round the clock. I have a really insane workload at school, private tutoring with lots of work going on everyday, basically another full time job with the mortgage process, then to get the news from the doctor on Monday – I just couldn’t handle anymore…then my mother decided to lay a guilt trip on me.

REALLY??? Right now???

I don’t have any energy to tip toe through someone else’s ego. I realize that she needs help and that she wants me to be there for her, but what she wants I cannot provide right now. I have tried to include her in the things with the house, but that doesn’t seem to matter whatsoever. I am busy – scheduled long hours many of the days of the week with tutoring and my work, plus the work with the mortgage and trying to fit in some fun with friends to keep me from being a huge pain in the butt. She gives me no notice when she wants me to do things with her and it doesn’t seem to matter at all.

I broke down and cried for about 20 minutes straight. I begged Aaron to talk to the mortgage people today instead of me because I needed a break so badly. He is going to work on his lunch break and right after he gets done with work to see what needs to be done. I just need a day.

The medicine that the doctor put me is making me kind of crazy. I had taken it before and it took me about 2 weeks to get adjusted to it. It makes me tired and I have a constant upset stomach – so that is not helping how I feel right now. I know that it will get better and I know it’s for the best possible cause. Aaron is having a hard time with me being under the weather with the meds because he hates to see me not feeling well at all. He wants to help so he gets me Tums and rubs my back when my stress levels hit a high point.

I will be so grateful when it is April 9th, at the closing and being handed the keys to our home. I cannot wait!!

Took a break from blogging

I took a few week break from blogging as I have turned my attention to get this mortgage process done with! We are almost there and it couldn't happen sooner.

In terms of TTC, I went to the doctor yesterday for my annual exam and we had a long talk. I have been trying to lose weight since the IUD was taken out in December and since then, I have only dropped about 2 pounds!!! Talk about frustration. We decided that I was going to go back on Metformin again to help and then going to Clomid to help with ovulation. I am going to get blood work done on Thursday to make sure nothing has changed since the last time I had the whole spectrum done.

I came home from the appointment with some answers, but many more questions.

Someday, this will happen.

We Got the House!!

We found out tonight that our bid was accepted on the house! We are so excited we can hardly handle it!


We are meeting tonight to sign the contract and get information to get the inspection scheduled. There are so many things that will need to get done, but it's so excitingly wonderful that we are all right with the amount of work to get done!

I can still hardly believe it, I think I am in shock over the whole things, we could close in a little over a month from now. After that, we can start painting the house before we move in, measuring for the new furniture, and starting to plan out where things are going to go in the house. It's amazing how many things that need to get done in about a month.

Update on house post

I called the lady, she was going to look into it and let me know. We made a tentative meeting for Friday for us to get together and put a bid in on the house!

WOOHOO!!! One day closer to getting it done.

No news is good news, right????

Well we haven't heard anything yet about that house to the positive or the negative...what the hell???

Give me something real estate lady, this waiting is killing me!

Okay, I am not always the most patient person when comes to certain things, like this in particular. There are many things in my life that I have no issues taking my time or having things more slowly. But now, after 2 years of living in one room...I WANT OUT!!!! My patience for these things has been completely depleted and all I want is space to spread out.

Aaron's mother says that we make our own luck in our relationship and I am really hoping that holds true now. This is when we need the luck more than ever!

I think anyone in my shoes may feel the same way, we have been married for over 8 months, been living with a roommate since April of 2008 (granted it has helped us save some serious money) and it's just time for us to have our own place to begin our life/family! Yes, I said Aaron and I would like to really begin the process of starting our family together (being 29 and 30 why wait???).

There are so many things happening at the same time and it's exciting/scary/nerve-wrecking/anxious-ridden time in our life, but honestly, I would not change it for anything.

I am going to call her today to see if we can set up a time to put in a bid for when this other contract expires, so we can get in immediately and get it taken care of ASAP. We talked about what we would be willing to start as our 1st bid last night, just get ourselves ready for it. Staying positive is so hard right now when the days seem to drag on FOREVER and nothing seems to be moving forward at all.  I am ready to sign on the dotted line and get the keys to our new home.

We are going to be looking at some other houses this weekend because we will not have an answer for certain until at least Monday, so we may as well keep going until we get to the point that we know something for certain. The ones on Saturday are on our okay list, but there are a few on Sunday that are in our top 5 picks...

Somewhere in there amongst all of these is our home: where we will live for a long time, raise our children, share holidays/birthdays/BBQs. It's an adventure for us and I cannot wait! (Can you tell??)
