March On.

The house purchase fell through in the inspection stage so now we are back to square one...I am so frustrated!  We have seriously been searching for our next home for over two years now and I am ready to be done with this process.  At least we sold ours...even if we took a hit and are now living in an apartment, it still feels good to have let that albatross go.  So February was pretty crappy - I started back to work, we spun our wheels in the housing market and Cam had another ear infection.  March started with Cam having  his adenoids taken out and new ear tubes put in.  He did well with the surgery but then got a virus which turned into a pneumonia and so he has been sick this entire week.  He is sleeping right now -- thank goodness.  Needless to say, life has been chaos around here.  My saving grace has been my little Henry, who has been sleeping well, eating well and smiling a ton!  He turned 3 months old this week!  Time is flying.

In the 1 hour or so that I have each night I try to relax, shower, visit with my husband and get organized for the next crazy day -- and sometimes I get to watch a little television.  We have been tuning into the usual Thursday night line-up on NBC and Modern Family on Wednesday night.  I religiously DVR Bethenny Ever After and find myself wishing that I: a) had her clothing, b) had her as a friend, and c) had a bottle of SkinnyGirl chilling on ice at all times.  Which reminds me, I need to pick some up next time I go to Sam's Club (it was about $11 per bottle there).

Although I don't want to rush anything, I do want to get into a house because it will signify that we are finally settled somewhere.  Living in the apartment, albeit a great space and location, was always a temporary solution and now I am ready to leave it behind...just need to solve the pesky house purchase problem.  I'm also debating how long to breastfeed this time around.  I went six months with Cam and it was difficult because I was working full-time.  Right now I am still on a part-time schedule and only have to pump three days a week at the office, so it has been easier.  I definitely will go through this month and into the next, but once I start ramping up my schedule at work I may have to reevaluate.  Pumping is nothing I enjoy doing, especially since I have to essentially do it in a bathroom at work.  Right now when I go to work in the morning I am a pack mule - I have the pump bag and all supplies, the diaper bag for Henry + bottles, my work laptop, my work bag (which I could probably ditch) and my purse.  On the days I have to take diapers and wipes to daycare for the kids I feel like I am packing for a cross country trip.  Ladies, how do you slim down the luggage with children???

On a positive note, the weather has been fabulous here!  I am loving the early spring but I keep waiting for it to get cold and snow again...just the Cincinnati girl in me.  Have an amazing weekend and stay well!
