Potpourri

I know, I've been slacking. But honestly, I feel totally unmotivated lately, I'm just recently (like in the last two days) feeling like doing anything but sitting on my big fat pregnant ass and doing nothing. So, maybe I'm starting to pull out of this funk or whatever it is but I'm hoping to be blogging a little more frequently than I have been in the last two months.

I got some new pics of Niko today:






Isn't he huge for 6 months????
Hmmmm, let's see, what else? Oh, the horrible neighbours are moving out!!! Not this weekend but next! WOOOOOOT!!!! So damned excited! Landlord is leaving it empty for a month so it will be sooooo quiet for the month of February! So happy!
I just made an appointment to go and get registered for school as of February 2nd. I will be completing my high school. I've been VERY bored in the last few weeks since the holidays are over and so I thought, well, I have the time, might as well go do it and get it done before the baby is born. So, I should be a high school graduate by like June. Yay!
Ummmmm, partylite is slow, but that's not surprising considering the time of year and the economy. I'm hoping it will pick up eventually.
We're looking into possibly purchasing a house. Jer's family knows someone who has access to foreclosures so we may be able to get a really sweet deal on a decent house....crossing my fingers but not getting my hopes up. I just have this feeling that we're not bringing in enough money for a mortgage just yet. If not then we will continue to rent and we'll be moving back to Welland in August.
That's about it for now...I am really hoping I'm out of my slump....spring is just two months away!!!!

That is awesome news about going back to school - yay for you!

And you know a mortgage payment is almost always cheaper than rent. That really pisses me off. I feel like I'm pouring money down the drain. With the rent I've paid since I moved out of my parent's house, I could OWN a great house by now, outright!

Niko - the GIANT BABY!!! - so cute!!

Good to see you posting again! I've been having the "house blues" lately. It was only a few months ago that Breen and I put money down on a big, beautiful house only to walk away from it in the final hours. I find myself wondering if the opportunity will come again to be homeowners. We had the down payment then. Now we don't. Like Boho said, it pisses me off to pay rent when a mortgage payment would be cheaper. BUT...time will tell and for now, I'm grateful for the home we've made.
