thanks ladies. I still have a hard time seeing myself this big. At least the bump helps distract the eye! Lol.

I don't think that I've even been to a pro bb game, only college. Watching KU right now- it's been a rough afternoon with Evan. Throwing tantrums for unknown reasons.

We got a few inches of snow last night but its going to be almost 60 again by Thursday.

I've done nothing today, but tomorrow dh is home and we are getting busy cleaning house.

Other than that boys are off from school this week and we are putting a bid on a home. So hope all goes well.

Off topic, Allison, I have never asked but I'm curious. Is Blu's given name Blu or is it a nickname? I notice the caps lock in your siggy and always wonder if it actually stands for something.

OK so his real name is David.

When I was in labor with Blu in the hospital DH put on Old School. And the scene with Will Farrell yelling at the old navy guy was on where he kept shouting "YOUR MY BOY BLUE!"

So since then my son has been Blu. My parents hate it but they hate all the names we picked. They may like the name Tanner but always gave me hard time with the other names.

To be honest I always wanted to name one of my kiddos Blu so it works. And it works in the South too lol! Everybody has a cousin named Blue down here--so they say.

Re: August '11- March Chat

Alison- yeah- that must've been some speach! lol Today we are watching golf. Evan loves to watch both though. And I always think of that scene when I see you talking about Blu! lol fx on the house bid! Hope you get some relief with the yoga as well.

Well, dh let me sleep in today until 10!! Evan was asleep that long too. So now I need to really get the lead out, make my grocery list and get to the store!

Oh and Evan has one 2yr molar all the way in and 1 poking through, plus the other two I think are pushing through as well. That might explain his severe grumpiness lately. He's been a handful!

Re: August '11- March Chat

So I had a mini meltdown yesterday. Just the reality of moving again, the costs, the baby coming soon, the recitals, graduaions, and all the things that the boys are in coming to an end in the middle of May when we are moved in May. DH does not want to pull them out of it and I see us, with a nb driving back and forth to all of these things.

I was even looking at smaller houses bc curse that Dave Ramsey bc my priorities have never been out of whack but they are even more tuned to DR now. But we are going with the home we decided that is cheaper than the one we were going to get built. If the smaller homes were on nice property dh would be all for it but they are kind of small and hilly. The house we are putting a bid on I love! And it has a great yard. But the smaller cheaper homes are more my style. They are more my style, by the same builders with all the bells and whistles as the house we are getting but cottage style which I have always wanted. I just which we could find a built one on nice property. Even though we will have 4 kids and a ton of dogs I really like small homes. I think I am just wierd. To me as long as it has 2 bathrooms, large closets and a laundry room and not built on a canyon I am good to go. Hardwood floors a a major PLUS and other than he mini canyon the smaller house has al those things.

Re: August '11- March Chat

Alison- I feel ya! I know even without moving right now, This lo will be here at the very beginning of the school yr which means getting everyone up and ready, to the bus stop, and drive Lauren to preK a few times/wk. Plus nursing full time/naps etc with the youngest two... I can't imagine adding traveling and unpacking!!! ((hugs ))

I am feeling the same about the whole DR thing too.. The idea of moving so far away, I have to think about all the shipping costs, import taxes, etc. Plus the cost of replacing items we don't take with us. I'm starting to second guess our choice. (not to mention that the crime/murder rate is one of the highest in the US..)

I hope that you guys will be happy with your house choice! I agree that having a nice yard is a super big plus and worth giving up a few perks inside the home.

I am thinking along these lines as well. Going to keep the options open until we get closer to D day.
