Oh Yeah!! I Have a Blog!! :)

I'm soooo sorry I haven't posted in a long time! Life's been crazy lately, as we look for a house to move too very soon.

Our apartments are raising their rent AGAIN...they just raised it six months ago when we signed another lease. We are not signing another one, so we're looking for a house with at l
east 3 bedrooms and a fenced backyard for the girls to play. What they are raising rent to, we feel is just not worth it for this place. They don't do repairs like they should...there's really nowhere for the girls to play outside...and on top of all that, with the last "newsletter" we were informed that we are not allowed to grill!! How unAmerican is that?!? It's so much crap.

I hate moving...especially in the summertime! The house hunting is really starting to get me down too. So far every house we've tried for, someone else gets. :( It would help, I'm sure, if we had the rent and deposit they were asking on the
day we apply, but realistically that's not happening. Gas and groceries are killing us, and until we've for sure found a place to move to, the apartment sucks up money that we could use for moving. :( UGH!
ANYWAY...other than that, we're all doing just fine. The girls are good...had to take them in for shots a week or so ago, yeah, that was fun. I chopped off Destiny's long hair, and now it's chin-length. She loves it, and it looks really cute!

Meghan graduated to Pull-ups instead of diapers yesterday, so we've begun the potty-training thing. Can you believe it's that time already??? I can't! I'm a little sad, because it means she's not a baby anymore. :( She is so full of attitude lately, saying "No" to just about anything we are telling her to do, and bedtime has become a battle. She is constantly getting out of her crib and throwing a big hissy fit. She's also to that stage where she wants to do everything all by herself. That's great, until you're in a big hurry to go somewhere and she's taking 20 minutes just to put on a shirt! LOL

Oh thank God you are alright! We were all so worried.

Bummer about the house hunting but you know something will come along.

The girls are getting so big and Destiny's hair is adorable!

I'm sorry to make you guys worry! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, though...knowing people really care! :)

I'm gonna try my best to blog more often again...I guess I took an unintended extended leave. My heart just wasn't in it. Thanks for sticking with me! :)

Glad you guys are doing OK though. Yeah, I've got friends who are in the house hunting biz too and it's driving them nuts!

Cheers and good luck.

Welcome back! Glad to see things are okay.

I know moving sucks. First, last, security deposit, cleaning deposit, utility deposit!!! The frustration of trying to beat everyone else looking is tough too. Keep at it though, your place is out there!

The girls look sooo cute! Rose loved the footie picture. She said, "We should do that, Mom!" I dont think our picture would look as cute as yours though. lol

Monica said...

Glad you and the family are okay. Keeping fingers crossed you find a house soon. The pictures are so cute!

Take care of you.

Jody said...

Do not worry too much, things will work out with your move in the long run! The hair cut looks great, your girls are too cute! As Tigger would say keep on bouncing. I am glad you have taken the time to write in your blog, there was concern for you! TTFN

It is nice when you can find an affordable home to rent so your kids can play outside.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me. I think about you and your family often. I hope things are going well for you all.

MamaKBear said...

LOL...I know!! I saw it a couple days ago and was going to delete it, but wasn't signed into Blogger. I was feeling too lazy to go and sign in! At any rate, it's gone now! :)

What pissed me off about it was that it was a "comment" about a whole LOT of nothing!! I mean, really...WHATEVER dude!

I've got tons of things to blog about...some recent, some not-so-recent but definitely blog-worthy! Stay tuned! :)

So many of us can relate to the added costs of life in the summer, especially in this economy. Prayers are with you as you transition to a place your children will no doubt LOVE with the extra yard space!

Jack Peltz said...

Thank you for the amazing material, MamaKBear. I'm not sure how best to approach this, but I would appreciate your thoughts about some work I am doing in regards to family functioning. I am a graduate student researcher at the University of Rochester, and I am currently conducting my dissertation on how families with a 2 or 3 year old grow and change over time. The study is an online survey that takes about 20 minutes to complete. I would love it if you would be participate, and if you think the endeavor is worthwhile, it would be very helpful to my work to have you mention the study in your blog. I know that you must be very busy as both a parent and a writer (I'm also the father of 2 children), so please let me know what you think.
Thank you,
Jack

Here's the link to the study:
