I feel like the title says it all.
Our Hiawatha house is set to close July 15th if the buyer’s bank can get everything ready by then, and I seriously can’t wait. These buyers are annoying the crap outta me. Maybe it’s because I’m a little jealous they get my house… I was there yesterday for a bit and realized how much I really like it, and how much I will miss it. Or maybe it’s because the buyers really are annoying. The house is about a year and a half old, we were the only owners since it was built new. The buyers wanted the carpets cleaned. And touch-up paint ordered for the kitchen cabinets… The carpets and the cabinets are spotless so I’m not sure what their deal is. Oh, and get this, they already set up lawn care services and I’m pretty sure the guy who came to cut the grass broke a window. Ugh, I swear to God I’m not paying to replace that when they had people come to a house they don’t even own yet! The nerve!
Cedar Falls house is currently off the market as there is not a single thing in this city currently for sale I want to buy. We didn’t want it to sell and be forced to buy quickly and move. I assume we won’t list it for sale again until we are moved into something else. Makes it way easier that way for showings too.
I’m in my fifth week of working out for 60 minutes five days a week. The classes are like hell, some kick boxing, some weight training, a good mix really, but I swear they just try to kill us. So far I have survived. We’ll see.
Speaking of dying. I have more concerns about our current daycare. But again, I’m scared to say anything as I fear we’ll be kicked out again… Sad, but true, I really feel that way. In the bathtub last week Nora and Nadia took in Barbies to play, and Nora kept knocking one into the water and saying she was dead. I asked Nora if she knew what dead meant, and she said it means you lay down. I tried to explain, but I think I failed as she didn’t seem to grasp the concept that death is permanent. I let it go, but then later that evening she asked me what a gun was. I was so shocked I didn’t even really answer her question, rather just asked her where she heard the term. She said at school… What the… Why would that be talked about? I mean, I assume it was other kids, not like an actual discussion in class, but what four and five year-olds talk about guns? Or am I really that naive? Thank God they start as a new pre-school at the end of August.
Nadia is still waking once or twice a night. Lately though she has these tantrums. Like she literally throws herself on the floor and screams at the top of her lungs. Yells at me, tried to swat me away from her. It’s awful as she wakes the entire house. I never experienced behavior like this with Nora, although I’ve heard other horror stories of the “terrible twos”. I’m wondering if this behavior is within the range or normal… Or course I’m always terrified it’s not normal, something related to her prematurity, her brain bleed or lack of oxygen at birth. Something else for me to worry about and obsess over.
Enough for now… off to do laundry and meal plan. The joys of my life!
