Here's a tip:

Don't ever decide to go off your meds right before you start the home buying process.

Oy vei.

Needless to say I temporarily went back on them before I went totally crazy. Then I ran out and realized so did my prescription, so.....I'm off of them again. So far, so....ok. ;-) I haven't decided to kill anyone...yet (lol). Although I can think of a few people who'd be first in line!

Anyway, as you can imagine, I've been extremely busy with the whole "new house" thing. Plus our daughter decided she didn't like sleeping in her room, so that's been fun. ::eyeroll:: It went from us being able to just put her in her bed around 9:00/9:30 and not hearing from her again for 12 hours, to us snuggling with her on the couch or waiting by her bed for a good half hour (at around 10:00/10:30) and seeing her little dark curly head at the edge of our bed at 7:00am. And that's a GOOD night! ;-)

So here's hoping we get her on a more normal sleep routine by Halloween.

And hopefully, if my life gets back to 'normal' I can blog a little more. I've been feeling very crafty and creative lately, so who knows...maybe you'll be seeing some posts with craft pics. :)

So yeah, we're getting a house.


We filled out all the paper work and jumped through all the hoops, and we close on the 30th. I'm so excited! (also, overwhelmed b/c of packing. I hate packing. I hate actually MOVING even more. But this'll be the last time for a long time, so it's ok.)

Here are the pics from the website:







There are no pics of the 3 bedrooms or the yard, but they are all very nice. The yard has a privacy fence (and it's very pretty too!) so our daughter can play and we don't have to worry about her. I'll post pics once we move in and all OUR stuff is there (not just the staged items) ;-)

But still keep your fingers crossed. It's not over until we close!

OK, so we put an offer in on a house

We could close by the end of the month! OMG! I could get a HOUSE for my birthday! (which is May 1st by the way. I accept cash, checks and gift cards to my favorite stores. ;-) LOL.)

It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with an open floor plan, fenced in yard and a full unfinished basement (which we will add a bathroom, bedroom and large rec room probably next year)

Please keep your fingers, toes....everything crossed for us!

So we're going to buy a house.

I'm so excited and scared at the same time! I just really hope we find one that is just right for us. I saw one that would be PERFECT, but it looks like it may be taken already. :( We're still going to look at it, just in case, but I don't have my hopes up for it.

BUT I know that we'll find the right one eventually.

Man, it makes your head spin though! It's a nerve-wrecking process.

I'm going to stop taking my meds.

I've been on them since Oct. 2007. I tried to come off them in March 08 and it was NOT good. But I'm feeling better about things this time around and want to try it again. I still have a prescription through the rest of the year, so if I feel like coming off them was a bad idea I can start them up again, but I'm hoping it doesn't come to that.

I don't think there's anything wrong with taking anti-depressants, but if I don't have to keep buying them and remembering to take then every night that would be nice. Plus I'm pretty sure I can't take them if I decide to have another baby (which will probably happen sometime in the next couple years). I fully expect to be on them again at some point in my life, especially if I DO have another baby, but in the mean time I'm going to try flying solo. ;-)

Wish me luck!

2 years old today

Today is my daughter's 2nd birthday. I can't believe she's 2 already! Time has gone by fast. She's still my little baby though.

She is so incredibly smart and beautiful.

Right now she's SUPPOSED to be going down for a nap, but, you know, whenever I NEED her to sleep she doesn't. She's up there hollering at me, telling me how evil I am for keeping her up in her crib, lol. I'm ignoring her. I have to get ready for her b-day party. (A party that pretty much everyone invited isn't coming. :-( I guess we picked a bad weekend. Oh well, there's still vodka in the fridge, so it'll be a good day after all, lol.)

I'll be taking pics of the decorations (since my OTHER favorite hobby is party planning). As soon as I figure out how to upload them on here I'll post them.
