We got it!

I just heard from my realtor . . . we put an offer on a house and this time, we got it! It is in PG and is cute. It was built in the 1940's. It is brick. The inside has all new floors, all newly painted, and a brand new kitchen. It has a one car garage for my hubby's 68 firebird. It is two floors. We are getting it for 194,000. Our realtor did some checking and houses of similar age and condition were selling in te area for around 235,000. Yea! Now we have to do all the mortgage stuff . . . yikes! But, we're totally excited!

Doctor Time!

I'm off to my first "official" doctor's appointment today. I had to go to the doctor yesterday, but that was all paperwork and a blood draw. Woo hoo! Guess what. My sweet hubby is coming with me. Hooray! I don't know if hooray is precisely what he's thinking but, hey, it's nice to have someone you know in the room as long as you've got to be mostly naked.

We're going house browsing afterward. We were really proud of ourselves for putting an offer on a cute 1905 home in AF, but the owner sold it to his buddy instead of us. Even though our offer was better. Made my hubby a little unhappy, but now he's REALLY excited about buying a home, so we'll search PG tonight. 5 or 6 homes, I think. Our new wishlist is nice kitchen, clean bathrooms, clean carpets, and bedrooms that will fit more than a bed and a very skinny child. We've seen some serious ugly in our hunt! I'll let you know if we find anything spectacular.

The morning sickness is starting to fade, I hope. I still can't find anything I'd like to eat, but I don't feel like there is a war in my tummy as often, so maybe I will be able to enjoy the holidays a little more than I thought. The magic pill is tillamook cheese. If I feel sick, I eat it and feel better . . . weird pregnant lady . . . . Only 8 days till Seattle! Hooray!

A general update that is probably not very interesting

Hello!
So, no one told me that morning sickness is awful and lasts all day. I heard that is was, but no one really convinced me. Consider me convinced. Reading gives me motion sickness. I can't even correct papers. This is silly! I am living off applesauce, cold water, and saltine crackers. If I crave something, I eat that too. The weird part is, if I crave something Monday, I don't want it Tuesday. Friday it was an omlette, Saturday fish and chips, and yesterday was ramen noodles. At least the kid likes a variety. :)
I learned a good lesson. If something about your pregnancy is odd, ask your mom. It will save you some stress, since pregnant ladies stress about stuff.
My husband is a good one, though. He takes care of me and runs for whatever the craving is. Sweet, huh?
Hey, only 17 days till I'll be in Seattle for Christmas! Yay! Home for a green, warm, and probably lazy Christmas.
The Primary Nazi has finally given up I think. I don't mind handing out the roll papers (if I'm not too ill), filling out the agenda, and other stuff. She's finally given up on me calling half the ward to remind them of stuff she called them about yesterday or going to two hour planning meetings . . . where we just hear what her plans are. :) This is a positive development.
I go to the doctor on the 11th and then actually meet with him the 12th. My sweet hubby is coming with me on the 12th. He thinks maybe he'll wear his uniform for impact . . .
By the way, mom . . . great gift for him. He'll love it!
