penstamon I don't feel done yet either. I don't know if I have that much anxiety over being a first time mom, but the house is definitely not ready! I just ordered the diapers and carseat 2 days ago, and I still have to put together the baby bed and rearrange the furniture and finish a zillion little other odd projects. So yeah, I'm glad I'm due at the end of July, and I'll happily be pregnant for 4 more weeks.
In other news, we are having yet more landlord drama. Dh's brothers rented the basement half of our house until last april, and MIL thinks they should have gotten more of their security deposit back. As dh's brothers were young to have moved out (16 and 18) MIL was supervising their bank accounts and thus is a little more involved. So she sent a letter to the landlord on their behalf (they are working on fishing boats for the summer), disputing the deposit and threatening to get him in trouble for several things they discovered were not up to code in the basement if he didn't refund them more of their money. This infuriated the landlord and the message he sent back basically stated that she had better back off or there would be "repercussions" for me and dh.
Now, neither I nor dh wrote the letter, signed the letter, read the letter, or had anything to do with this whole dispute in the first place. If he wants to jerk us around by unfairly raising our rent or some such nonsense, we can just move out, our lease is month to month, and frankly, I'll be glad when we no longer have to deal with such a childish man. But, being in full nesting mode, I really don't want to move within the next couple of months unless we have to. The landlord is also now saying that MIL won't be able to stay with us next month for the birth. As she is our midwife, and lives several hundred miles away normally, this is a problem. Our utilities are all rolled into our rent, and so I can understand that having a guest could raise the water and electricity bill slightly. And I have no problem if he wants to charge us the difference from this month to next or something, but he didn't say one word to us about it being a problem until he got into an argument with her. MIL will still come down here regardless to attend the birth, but it really would be a nuisance if she had to impose on other friends and family because of a petty disagreement that has nothing to do with us.
