Holy crap. I'm sick. AGAIN. Another cold. It's been three short weeks since I got over my last one. Fun! I am starting to wonder if there is something wrong with me, why am I getting sick so much? I swear I get sick more than my children do these days.
There is some exciting news, though. Yesterday a mortgage broker came over to visit with Matt and I and go over some info about how we can buy our first house. He left with some of our info and crunched some numbers and emailed us this morning about what he found out. Apparently, we're in a much better situation than we thought we were, which is VERY exciting for us. The mortgage broker and real estate agent that we're talking to both taught at the home buying seminar I attended a few weeks back and are both incredibly nice guys and want to work with us to find us the right home and get us a decent mortgage. As little as a year ago Matt and I thought there was absolutely no way we would ever own our own home in Seattle. We had many discussions/arguments about moving away from Seattle in order to be able to buy a home, but alas, we decided to finally plant our roots right here. After the wedding our next big thing will be buying our first home! At least we're putting it off until then, I couldn't even imagine how we would try to do it at the same time as everything else we're doing. Added to the fact we're waiting for the wedding present cash to start rolling in so that we have some sort of down payment. Hee hee.
So despite the illness, life is good. I'm really looking forward to going to our friend's wedding this Saturday, as well. I don't know the last time Matt and I had any kind of date, so we're so excited to have some alone time. Julia is watching our girls, which the girls are very excited about, as well. Matt's friend Adam, who is officiating our wedding ceremony, is also officiating at the wedding we're going to, so it will be very fun to watch him in action. I even bought a new dress for the occasion, one that shows my knees which is a very big deal for me. Not sure if my legs look any better than they used to or if I just don't care any more, but it will be fun to try out a new style.
I'm also super happy to report that all of my clothing from last summer is too big for me! Shorts that were too tight for me last year are now falling off of my admittedly very flat booty. It will be fun to go shopping for new summer clothes, something I look forward to doing in a week and a half when Matt is at his parents house with BOTH of the girls. Um, yes, I will be home, alone, sipping lemonade and watching back to back episodes of Sex and the City on DVD while everyone is away.
