Ugh!

Yesterday was my birthday, and it was a tough one. Not that I'm upset that it's my birthday, just that everything is so out of whack. I can't wait for things to get back to normal. I keep trying to tell myself that we're living out our dream and dreams take work, but I constantly feel like I'm taking 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. It'll get better I know.

Today, my goal is to work my butt off at work today. Tom's at school today and won't be back until tomorrow evening. I borrowed his SUV instead of my sedan, so I can go over to the old house and seriously move some stuff to the new house. I've contacted two moving companies to get quotes to move just the furniture. We'll see how that goes.

There are also so many other things that I want to do this weekend. I want to put our menu together for this week and go grocery shopping, because we need to stop eating out so much. I also need to do some bills, and straighten up at the new house.

We still don't have any offers on the old house. Found out that the people that were going to make an offer last week went to Jamaica and won't be back until this weekend. We'll see what happens.

Hopefully, I'll also find some time to take some pictures at the new house (after I straighten it of course!) and get them posted. Can't wait to show everyone pics of the stove, whole kitchen, bathroom, new dress (I got one in the mail yesterday), and doggie.

Doggie (Corona) will be keeping me company tonight as Phoebe's still in Wisconsin with her grandparents, aunts, uncle, and two cousins. She did call me for my birthday last night and she started crying and saying she missed me. She's never done that before. I was completely floored and started crying in Borders on Tom's cell phone. We were in there buying a Van Morrison CD as I'm in love with the song "Moondance." We got a Greatest Hits, so it also has "Brown-Eyed Girl." I sing that to Phoebe whenever it's on the radio, as she is my brown-eyed girl. She likes the sha-la-la's. We having a good time singing that together. I miss her something fierce. Just a few more days to go. I think they are leaving Sunday evening. Not sure how long it will take them to drive to New Jersey from there. It'll either be Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on how many overnights they make it. They try to take their time, so my FIL doesn't overdo it.

Sorry about the off bday. Instead of wishing you a belated happy. I'll wish you a very good year to come full of days where all goes well and *crosses fingers* some very good news.

Happy Birthday! I'm so sorry about the house! I'm really hoping you sell it soon. Here's some "house selling dust" for you!

Happy Birthday! I've been a lurker for some time. We went through our own bout with infertility. We've been married 16+ years and our kids are 10 and almost 2. We have a "brown eyed girl" too and love Van Morrison. Does your CD have "Into the Mystic?" That's my favorite.
