I love it when siblings make each other laugh!
I so can't believe my BABY is turning 3 so soon! He's an end-of-the-monther so we have a little more time, but he is already super excited about it. We were celebrating my mom and step-dad's birthday (same day) a few days ago and Judah started talking all about HIS birthday and that he'll be 3 and talking about the splash pool we're going to go to for his party (or such is the plan!). He told me all about the things he'll do there - and he has never been, only seen pictures MONTHS ago! We've talked about it now and again but not in that kind of detail, so I was shocked and tickled that he was so excited!
He's also super excited about the new baby.
Baby is due about 6 weeks after his birthday, so we are getting close. Eek!!
I've been trying to handle major issues, drama, and concerns about the new house that's *supposed* to be being built. I ended up telling the sales counselor today that I needed her to tell me my house would start by the end of the week. Period. I'm not even sure where I came up with that, but she asked me what I needed from her (I've given her literally lists of questions in the past which have not been answered), and that's the demand that came to mind. Not unreasonable, either, given the situation, but also hadn't been quantified in my own mind, so it was surprising to think of it and say it, BUT it *might* have been just exactly what needed to be said.
Anyway, the issues are not yet resolved and we're not yet on a start list, but I am hoping that we'll hear tomorrow and that this company will show that it DOES care about its customers and is willing to do what's necessary to get things done. I do have one more card up my sleeve, and that is that a friend of mine (she was my upline in Stampin' Up! before I resigned) reminded me that her husband works for this very company. He's actually the construction manager for half of our metro area, and while we're in the other half, he obviously knows the construction manager for this side quite well. So I may be contacting him for information and an idea of what's going on. We shall see.
With all of that, I'm obviously super stressed. And we're showing our house 2 hours from any phone call (this morning, bright'n'early, we allowed 1.5 hour window). And I'm battling low blood pressure that's making me feel like I'm about to pass out at any given moment.
But I came home this evening and convinced my tired little boy that he really did want to snuggle with mommy on the couch, and there he fell asleep.
He is such a sweetheart! He can be quite the handful, too, but I do love those sweet moments!
