September is here, PDX Mamas! - Page 7

post #121 of 1788
Oh Nicole, I'm so sorry to hear that you are dealing with such huge housing issues right now! On the positive side, I'm so glad Sophie is doing well and the kids are so in love with her. She sure is cute

And completely OT - I had a dream that I went back to school. And my professor was Hilary Duff.

Sadly, both babies had apnea incidents last night, so they won't be coming home till sunday at the earliest. Celeste is bereft. It's so hard to watch her going through this, but there is nothing to do other than wait.
come home babies

And the frame is just fine! And cheaper than the one we'd picked out. Just two hours of assembly time, and viola: The Biggest Bed Ever!!! And I got to pull out all the king sized bedding I'd bought on 60% off clearance 6 months ago, back when a king bed was just a pipe dream. Before we even had a house. Yay!
King beds are the best I can't imagine sleeping with my 6"1' husband and tossing toddler without one!

Cool, I will send you an email about it! I bet Chase and Liam will really connect now that Chase is on the move!

Me, can I just say that I have a lot to process!!!! I take one long look at this sweet little girl in my arms and, awe! I'm so amazed and love her soooo much! I feel so complete.
As for housing...me and the kids are staying w/a friend. DH is working on finding us a place, but it is slim pickings in our area unless we want to pay $1200 for rent. Our community resource has no funding so we are out of luck for emergency housing. We are waiting to hear back on a couple different places, so hopefully we will have some good news soon...Not exactly the best time for a move...
So there ya have it...it sucks...but what's a mama to do?


I apologize for posting and not being caught up with everyone....I am so thankful for all my friends and your support and warm thoughts...big hugs!
You are such a positive person lady! I am sending a powerful intention your way that the ideal living situation comes easily and soon!:

off to read C blog. Have I missed something?

I am walking today! :
My ankle is still swollen and tight and really funky but I am starting to walk on it! I can see that it is going to need some tender care b/c the infection caused a lot of tight scar tissue around the ankle almost like a bad burn or something. Such a strange thing. :

Me either. That's why he's been sleeping on the couch for many months.

Oh Savannah I am so glad to hear you are able to walk! I burned my feet once really very badly and couldn't walk for awhile..... it was hard to get going again because the scars were so tight. Just take it slowly and I know you will be chasing that little man of yours soon

Ha, I can and it's not a pretty site!! The first time my toddler fell out of bed I told him enough is enough!! We bought a king sized bed that day!

Now we have a Cal King and I think our next bed will be a king again. The Cal King is still too short and he sleeps sideways anyway so I might as well have a bed with more room to his feet aren't on my side.

We had told Lily we would visit another beach, but that didn't happen because he was too upset.

I drove us home from Newport via Corvallis, then went grocery shopping when I got back. Pretty tired now. He threw the grocery money at me because he didn't want me to go then, but we needed stuff. Turns out he didn't want to watch the girls for that time.

Just... very frustrated.
Sorry Hedy, that sounds like a horrible time. Joey always talks about how his dad would flip out on vacations if everything wasn't perfect. He had this idea in his head about how he wanted everything to be and could not improvise.

Troublemaker! No, I'm not pregnant, but it's funny you mention that, because I miscounted my cycle and thought I was for about a week. I got kind of excited, actually. It was kind of a bummer to find out I wasn't. But we talked about it and decided that when we are settled in PDX and when I have my first month of making a certain amount of money, we'll start trying to get pregnant again. So, it's nice to plan it because it gives me time to get as healthy as I can.

Yay for walking! :

And it's funny with all of the talk about king size beds, we are actually thinking of going back to a queen. Well a queen for us, and a twin for Eleanor. Right now Jimi is in the king in our room, and E and I are in the queen in her room. Great for her.....but not so great for us, iykwim. So we are going to try the queen on one side of the room and twin a few feet away. That way we can sleep together, and E will be near us until she is ready for her own room.

I'm sorry for the bummer, Candice. When are you guys hoping to be in Portland? It looks like our move month has changed to February. Which I am mostly okay with. It will be much better for J work-wise to transfer then. Is there anywhere in between us that we could meet up for a playdate?
post #134 of 1788
I keep pushing it up, but I'm really hoping for Oct. 1st. : Before the rain and everything. I'd totally meet up in Cottage Grove for a playdate sometime! It's only about 45 minutes from me.

We are love, love, loving this arrangement. For a long time we thought we'd get a king size bed but then we went ahead with the queen/twin arrangement and think it is the best.


Candice, sorry for the pregnancy letdown! But planning it feels good, too

Korin, hope those babies come home soon!!

Cottage Grove sounds good to me. Although I don't know what there is to do there. Let's plan something while the weather is still nice. And I guess while you are still in the area.

Thanks Lee, I think it will work much better for us. Plus our queen is a really nice mattress, and the king is some super cheapy mattress. So we are excited, well J is excited to sleep on the good bed again. E isn't nursing at night anymore, but she does wake up and need to cuddle back to sleep. So, I like being near her so she doesn't fully wake up.
