A roller coaster ride
Where do I even begin with the last few weeks? I feel like we've been on a roller coaster ride. A few weeks ago we finally found a home! It was such an exciting moment to start signing that paperwork. It wasn't my dream house by any means, but I was just excited to finally have a place to start nesting. We were all set and approved, that is, until the inspection took place. I've never been so thankful for my handy grandpa, uncle, and mom as I was then. They looked over the inspection papers and told me to get out of it as soon as possible. The house was a giant money pit. Everything needed to be changed... including all the electrical. I've learned more terms about house problems than I ever knew existed before in the last two weeks. We lost out on some money from backing away, but I'm so thankful that we were able to get out before we were permanently stuck with it. So, we've started the whole process again. This time I feel more prepared and know what to look for. It's been a little disheartening with our baby so close to coming into the world, but I'm thankful for our little one bedroom apartment and a roof over our heads.
For Thanksgiving, we took nearly a week to visit my husband's family at the other side of the state. Unfortunately, every annoying pregnancy symptom in the world decided to show up for me while I was there. It was a rough week! I'm so thankful for the time we got to spend with his family, even if a lot of my time was spent on the couch or in bed. I'm still experiencing some painful symptoms now, and have been working from home for the last few days. I'm praying that the rest of this pregnancy will fly by and I will get some relief! I'm thankful that I get the chance to experience the miracle of life, but it's definitely not the most enjoyable experience health wise. Ha! I've been so grateful for Joe lately. He has been taking care of me every day, and is constantly putting my needs before his own. He has made Walgreens runs for medicine, held me until while I couldn't sleep, and encouraged me when I felt the worst. I think he's going to be an excellent daddy. :) I'm more blessed than I know.
