for us a co-sleeping babe doesn't count, so we *could* get a 2 br.
But...with ds1 being 11, and ds2 being 4...that would just be asking for WWIII to start.
We can barely have them in the same house, never mind sharing a bedroom!
We are moving into a 3br--Lisa you are welcome to come visit anytime!
We figure when ds3 is older, he'll bunk with ds2...
When we were filling out the lease, we asked if we could move into a bigger unit if one opens up (the boys bedrooms in this one are a little less than 7x11)
And they said they have a 4br that might open up soon...in my mind I couldn't imagine how we could get into a 4 br---we don't *need* one
then I realized...5 people...we do 'qualify' for a 4 br...good grief. Like I want to have to clean up ANOTHER bedroom???!!???
We called the temp agency...we're going to get 2 guys for 4 hours..and we moved the move date AGAIN...so we have help unloading the truck.
I feel better now..but still pretty mega stressed....
moving with 3 kids is not fun.
Jesse you deserve sainthood for moving so many times with the kids
sooooo now...I have a week to sort and pack everything...
then a day to get through stuff up there...
then a day to load the truck
and a day to unload
and we are DONE *whew*
Gawd I hope this works.
dh still hasn't found a job up there
not that he could find one here either
Well, I shouldn't say that.
There are jobs.
But they would mean me having all 3 kids at home alone while I'm working. And that isn't good.
Since I have more earning potential than him, I need to keep my job.
But my job it totally not reliable on paying. It's been okay this year, but last year there were about 3 months straight where we got partial pay, instead of a full paycheck
So, even with my going to school and taking out loans, we have to try to save as much as possible, just in case
DH is looking to go to school in the spring...that will help.
if he does that and works PT...and I do school and leave this job and work pt...we'll be okay.
I'm so sick of thinking about money.
This entire move is getting put on my Amex card. Which we will then transfer to our Discover card for a lower rate.
