    Bin laden is dead! I'm so happy that we had such a victory, but soon after the story I was a little worried about retaliation. I'd say I'm glad I'm not in a major city, but at the moment I don't feel like that. Hopefully nothing will happen and his followers will start to fizzle out as they are hoping will happen.

    On baby front I had some weird dreams last night about some tv shows and some baby things. The most interesting was I was finally able to check for dialation as my cervix had moved nearly to the outside, though I wasn't really dialated more than a finger tip.

    I have really been away from the boards and do apologize.

    I love reading your posts because you have such a wonderful attitude! I have never heard a lady so late in pregnancy complain so little!

    Thanks for the tip about cream of wheat! I was sorry to hear about DS, I didn't realize ants could give someone that type of reaction.

    actually I complained quite a bit on my birth board before my lodge as I was in a lot of pain, but then I remembered to put a pillow between my knees when I went to bed and almost all the pain disappeared, along with the contractions so not much to complain about, lol. I'm really looking forward to a more positive ending, unlike DD's birth lodge last time. I was just too conflicted with emotions then.

    On a side note, I refinished the nursery again, lol. It's cleaned, rearraged (again) and hopefully house show worthy. After lunch I'm hoping to finish the kitchen, though I doubt that'll happen, so maybe I'll do the play room and living room. Those 2 should only take about 30 mins as they pretty much just need the floors picked up. Oops, looks like its laundry time. *sigh* Its going to be a long day. Did I mention that today is when we sign papers to put the house on the market? I'm hoping we can finish the cleaning before bed tonight but we'll see. Once again, it'd be awesome if someone would buy before baby, or at least before school was over so I didn't have 3 kids to pick up after. I'm sure we'll make it through.

    It is no fun prepping your house for sale while you should be nesting for yourself. I hope you get it all fixed up though and that it doesn't take too awful long to sell.

    Glad you have increased your water intake.

    I wish you could come clean my house Eirinn I've seriously considered hiring a maid to come once a week just to help with the grittier parts of cleaning, but I doubt I could afford it. I know it still looks like there's a lot to do, but I could probably finish everything by tomorrow night if DH would just help me in the bedroom.

    I can't believe you're so close Tiff ! Seems like your pg has just flown by. I'm sorry you have so much going on right now. Try to rest as much as you can !

    You're a very brave woman for trying to sell your house at this point! We are in the process of trying to sell ours now and it is absolutely overwhelming to me. I have barely thought about being pregnant with all the cleaning, painting, rearranging, etc. I guess maybe it gives you something to think about other than waiting on baby to come?
    If you can afford it, hire someone to clean your house once a week! I had my SIL clean for us before and right after DD was born and it was worth the extra expense. I think you deserve it with all you've got going on!

    Well we just met with our new realtor tonight and went ok. To sell the house at the price we need she said it had to sparkle. Of course our house doesn't sparkle right now, but I think I can get it there in 2 weeks. This should be interesting. At least there's not an overwhelming amount to do. Finish painting the kitchen, hall, one bedroom and both bathrooms. Hire someone to carpet clean and put down some flooring in the kitchen, laundry room and both bathrooms. We're just going to do those stick down tiles so it should be easy enough. Oh and a slight trim on the gate as it swelled and won't shut. At least I don't have to redo it again for the 4th time! Funnily enough she was mostly concerned with the ceiling where I'd attempted to remove the popcorn ceiling but after one nights work decided it wasn't worth it and I just haven't had a chance to fix it, though I have all the materials to do it and it shouldn't take more than 2 hours to do, and that time is mostly for drying So like I said, nothing too bad. Our bedroom is going to be the hardest as it has the most junk in it.
    The only thing she wants me to do that I don't want to do is replace the shower curtains. Both bathrooms have see-through curtains. The hall bath is so we can watch the kids and not worry about the floor getting soaked. The master bath is due to my PTSD, I can't shower with a sound mind without being able to the door. I'm hoping to find a curtain that I can just snap on real quick when we get notice that someone is coming over to look. She's hoping that we'll be sold within 3-4 months, which would be awesome. We'll see what we can come up with. I've done most of the decluttering already I just need to make it look pretty now.
