Well, how to start this, oh I know! I HATE BEING A HOMEOWNER. There now that is out of the way. I know it is the "American Dream" to own your own home, but it really isn't all it is cracked up to be, especially when you have a "pre-owned" home. Since purchasing our house, 4 years ago, our water heater died, and our sewer has backed up into the basement 4 times ruining the carpet down there. We discovered why the house is covered in wall-paper. It appears that it has lead based paint, so as we have been redoing rooms we have been removing wall paper and sealing the walls. UGH I didn't sign up for this, at least not knowingly. I am ready to be done with this thing and move somewhere when if something happens I call someone else and they come and fix the problem. What are my choices with this? Is it back to apartment living? Is this how most condos are run? I need to start researching my options.
We are having a baby! In an series of events over the past week, Precia and I ended up at the Hosiptal last night so she could get an IV and get re-hydrated. Once that was started they decided that they needed to check on the baby and make sure it was doing ok. So at 10:30pm we had our first ultrasound. It was absolutly amazing to see those images on the screen and to hear our baby's heart beat 165 bpm, right down the middle for normal at this size. We found out that we are almost exactly 9 weeks along, so hopefully only another 3 weeks of this morning sickness stuff and then it will be smooth sailing, until April 22. We were discharged around 11:30 and made the long trip home. Precia is feeling much better today, better than she has felt since the morning sickness started. So now the goal is to stay hydrated and get through the next 3 weeks.
