Anxious Grandparents and Preparing To Move!

Four more days of work!! I can't believe it! I have worked full time for a while now and the thought of not working at all is kind of exciting since I will have so much more free time to do things I haven't had the energy/time for while working so much!! While I won't have to work anymore, I still might just out of boredom and to bring in some extra money...since, you know, houses are a bit expensive!

The other day I wrote on facebook....


And then I got a bunch of responses but I wanted to share with you the response that Michaels mom said...


I love how excited my parents and inlaws are for us to have a baby. It will be soon enough, I hope!

Oh yeah, she also pointed out that 50's wives didn't go to the gym. :-)

As for other things going on, we are pretty much done with painting the house! All that is left now is to fix up the wood cabinets/cupboards/drawers and get new handles and knobs for them.

We sold our couch and our table and chairs on craiglist so our apartment is looking pretty bare. We want a new couch, or at least a nicer one for the living room. We are also looking for a dining set that seats 6-8 people, a china cabinet that matches, and a new bedroom set for our room. None of our furniture is very nice right now and most of it doesn't match so we are really hoping to fix that now! Craigslist is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! The prices are so good and you can find stuff on there that's still pretty nice.

I just can't wait to actually purchase those things and start moving in! I reserved a moving truck for September 6th and we are really hoping to get everything moved in one trip.

I just want to do it already!!

Stephanie said...

my MIL would say the SAME thing. it's so funny how excited they are for grandbabies! Lol

the 6th is just around the corner!! it'll be AWESOME to set up your own house. i'm *super* jealous, but happy for ya! we'll be doing it soon too, hopefully.

and omg, have fun with no more work! just slightly jealous about that too... ha. except i agree that i'd get bored after a while. i need to feel productive, and extra money doesn't hurt either! :)

SO exciting! I love craigslist too, it's great. Good luck with the move :)

I am really jealous. Just the other day I was saying how I wanted to just take like 6 months off or so from work. I am super burnt out as I have been working a full time job for a while now. All 4 years of college I worked full time and went to school full time. Then I have been working 50+ hour weeks since I graduated 1.5 years ago. Im just dead. But alas I cant because we need the two incomes.

But yes make babies!! That will be nice... I hope you are able to tackle a lot of projects and that the move goes smoothly

We had the first and last grandbaby on my hubs side of the family. I remember those subtle hints and also the not so subtle ones. haha.

Annie said...

I love that! My in-laws were the same way...so excited about grandbabies! Makes the whole process that much more fun!!

Mrs. G said...

That's so cute that your in-laws are so excited!!! My MIL has said hints a few times, but otherwise, it's pretty quiet. I'm positive my mom is in NO hurry to become a grandma. :)
