Update on the apartment hunt: The place I viewed with SIL was a bust. We didn't even go in to view it because big dogs aren't allowed AND there was no designated parking so street meter parking...? No thanks. HOWEVER, after that SIL and I met up with MIL for lunch and she told us a family friend is moving, he got a job in another state and his contract is for 2 years so he's thinking about renting out his place and he's curious if we would be interested in it! I called DH to discuss it and we're going to go view the property and talk with owner to see what the price range will be. From what he described on the phone to me it sounds almost too good to be true... can we really be so lucky all of the sudden?

You totally could be that lucky, its called favor

A couple that were friends with recently felt convicted and compelled to give their car away. It wasn't a fancy car, but it was *all* they had. So they did. While the guys were. on their weekend retreat, the man received a vehicle from another man there! Its a MUCH much nicer and reliable vehicle. Praise the Lord! He does things in His own time so its unmistakable that it was His hand.

I hope the house works out for your, hippie! Wonderful!

chunklins, it's so amazing how God works. Many times it seems we are also trying so hard to be prepared to wait for a loooonggg time...which is good, to not have some demanding heart. Yet, God will move and within the speed of us still thinking on the problem or issue or situation, and it's all worked out. I know I underestimate His goodness and ability all the time..He shows me time and again that He is in control and wants to bless.

What an uplifting turn of events/conversation!

I'm having issues with my babysitter and may need to have "a talk" with her today. I'm not good at confrontation so I'm not looking forward to it. Especially when it all stems from me not enforcing boundaries to begin with. gah

I'm starting to panic a little. I feel like I need to start preparing for the new baby but I can't until we get into our new house! Most of the time I know I still have plenty of time, but there are increasingly more moments of "Crap! I'm almost in my 3rd trimester, and haven't done zip !" The contrax are not helping either. I'm really thinking this LO is going to be early. Hopefully healthy early, not preemie early!
I just need to vent sometimes

Chunklins-I will pray that you get that nice settled and peaceful feeling. It's no fun being in a bit of upheaval when baby is around the corner.

Thanks, Nazsmum!

I hope those of you looking for a place to live, find a wonderful home for your family soon. I am sure when housing is not settled, then life is probably quite unsure all around it.

Blessings to you ladies!

No she didn't. The camp was like an all day thing and I didn't want her going all day, she's still young.

Wanted to wish you good luck! Also, I used to work as a nanny/babysitter and I'll tell you this from my point of view as a babysitter... please please please tell her what she's doing that's making you unhappy, its YOUR child that she's caring for so if you're having issues please discuss it with her. As a babysitter I appreciated when parents said things needed to change and/or brought up issues. It forced me to look at how I was taking care of the children and change some things.

We went and viewed the townhouse. It was so perfect! Kitchen/dining area/living room/1/2bath-laundry room combo/"foyer" all on the first floor plus two bedrooms upstairs. Plus has a deck off the back and a shed plus some yard space with a fence and through the fence is a big field and a church. Beautiful place and DH and I were both falling more and more in love with it but the more we found we liked the more nervous we got about how much he would want for rent. We were shocked when he said he'd give it to us for what we're paying now with everything included! I mean I have to pinch myself it seems almost a dream. So we signed the lease papers and we are moving in September!

I feel the same way... pregnancy seems so long and so short at the same time. Like you have all the time in the world to get things done. But at the same time when it comes to bigger stuff, like moving, it seems like there isn't enough time at all and you'll end up giving birth in the moving truck! Ugh... I wish you the best of luck though! You can do it!

Happy Friday

Make me know your ways, ADONAI,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth, and teach me;
for you are the God who saves me,
my hope is in you all day long.
Remember your compassion and grace, ADONAI;
for these are ages old.
Don't remember my youthful sins or transgressions;
but remember me according to your grace
for sake of your goodness, ADONAI.

Psalms 25: 4-7

I've got pink eye. ugh But halleluyah that I can still see.

I haven't talked to my sitter yet, but I may not have to. I moved my desk upstairs so that I'm not right there next to them all day, and it seems to have helped DS have a smoother day and I think also has the benefit of my sitter being forced to do more supervising by default. Things are good, mostly. Her kids go back to school tomorrow, and that's going to throw a big kink into things. I'm not super thrilled about her having to come later in the mornings, but she is just so thankful and appreciative that we're working with her on the schedule that I can't really get mad. It will all work out.
