So, we are in escrow waiting for the go ahead to sign the papers and move into the house. Whew, a lot of waiting, but at least it is an active sale, and not a short sale or foreclosure. We went and looked at paint colors today and are deciding what colors to paint the rooms. Then we will decide on a few pieces of furniture to acquire for the house and we should be set to live comfortably for a long time in this place.
well, we've been sick the last few days :( i missed 2.5 days of work last week and josh missed friday. we've mostly spent our time watching movies and tv and lounging around. i think i've left the house maybe 3 times in the last 5 days. the fevers are gone now but the hacking cough lingers on. oh well, such is life. thankfully all is well with the babies and i can even feel them move now! it's nothing constant or too strong or anything, but every once in a while i feel them move around and it's exciting.
so, tomorrow is monday and the start of another week. a week of catching up on all the work i've missed and figuring out how much sick time i'll have for when the babies come. hopefully work isn't too stressful and my clients are nice to me; that would be awesome. i need a chillaxing week to get back into the groove of real life.
We heard back from our Realtor that our latest offer on a house was accepted by the seller! Of course it's a short sale, so the bank has to review and approve it (which could take up to 6 months) but we are hoping things will work out this time! This is further than we've gotten so far in our hunt experience and we are both really excited.
It's a halfplex in Orangevale (1/2 of a duplex). It's pretty new (built I think in 2007) and has about 1630 square feet. We are praying for a miracle so that hopefully we get to move in there before the babies come!!
We also registered for baby stuff a couple weeks ago and they gave us a gift pack with a bunch of sample stuff and coupons, etc. I had to take a picture of this: It's a tiny diaper! Yes, that is my smallish cell phone next to it and it's nearly the same size! I can't believe how little it is. Of course, my parents babies never fit into the newborn-sized diapers when they were born (big babies) but with twins, I'm thinking they will be teeny. I'm so excited to have these two sweet tiny babies come to our family! Even little things like thinking about having 4 stockings at Christmas instead of 2 makes me smile.
