"Closure Update"

On this post, I had mentioned how many things we had on our task list that I wanted closure on... well, here is the update:

  • Baby still has no name     Narrowed down to 2 names, for the moment
  • Our new house is a MESS and unlivable for the moment     House is livable but a mess... the garage is cleaner but the house is fuller
  • I thought I was done at work, but found out on my 'last' day that an IEP had been scheduled for this Thursday, so I have to go in... AGAIN     Work is done, checked out, and not to be thought of until August
  • Our house is full of boxes, misplaced and broken down furniture.     Fewer boxes, more "stuff" (although not yet put away), and furniture might be in its final resting place
  • Squeaker is a royal mess -- he is wild, excitable, teething, etc.    Squeaker is mellowing out.  He is sleeping in our old queen size bed, in his own room, sleeping through the night again, and in general, doing well (knocking on wood as I write this)
  • I don't fit into my clothes anymore.     Clothes still don't fit, maybe even fewer fit?
  • Little Man wants to move into our new house and asks several times a day if we can. It is driving me crazy.     Moved in, living in the chaos, and everyone except Squeaker is happy with our new home (Squeaker asks to go "HOME RIGHT NOW" several times a week -- meaning back to GaMommy's house)
  • We need way too much stuff for our new house - that is what happens when you get rid of everything (cleaning supplies, condiments, everything you don't move cross country)     Our purchase list is dwindling... just need to acquire some yard equipment which is low priority given we have found the fridge and washing machine are WAY below my low standards. 
  • I am uncomfortable and would love very much if baby-no-name comes a bit early, assuming the ultrasound goes well on Monday     Ultrasound went well and baby can come but the time to come early is running out.  I am scheduled for a c-section on the 25th!
  • We have not moved out of my mom's house and really can't given the state of our new house -- okay, I would put up a picture, but I went to the house yesterday to meet with a roofer and the boys were HORRIBLY behaved (I know, you are shocked) so I couldn't even take a minute to catch our mess on camera. Besides, the garage door needs repair... ooo, next bullet
  • Our house needs a new garage door opener, roof repair, huge and dangerous trampoline gone out of the backyard, gaping hole of a spa covered and secured, exposed wiring in boys' bedrooms covered, side gate latches installed, new windows, screens, oh dear... is there more, probably, but this is a good start.     Have had quotes on our repairs and are deciding on which are the most important to get done.  We have cleaned and covered the spa and the trampoline has been relocated to GaMommy's house.  Oh, and exposed wiring covered appropriately.  

I CAN'T FIND MY CAMERA!!!!!  Lost in the move!!!!  :(  BOO HOO BOO HOO
