Well the gas saga continues and I have turned it over to hubby. I rang back the place that told me yesterday they would supply it to confirm we wanted one bottle. I got someone different and they said they need this certficate or else they won't supply. They can't even look up our address to see if they have it on file because they arrange ina display folder by surname, so helpful people. I ended up yelling at them about incompteant staff and crying at work. I told hubby he can sort oit out, but when I can get new appliances for about double the cost of the stupid certificate i have a feeling we could be going that way. Anyone got ideas of easy quick things I can cook in the oven or microwave that use turkey mince or thin steaks, because thats what I have in the freezer and no stove to cook with so it's buy all new food or starve.
I'll post a picture of me pretending to be a lady later
Jackie, I love that video!!
Poor Rowan, I hope she feels better soon and leaves your hands alone.
Great lady picture, Wendy. I like that dress.
Anna, that is so great that you like the house. I hope you and your DH can get some work done. I would have issues with both of the things he said too. I may have missed it, but did you go to your interview? How did it go?
Janice, I would have peed my pants too. That would have really freaked me out.
OMG. Lucas' baby monitor started talking and I almost crapped myself. I think it's picking up a police radar somewhere and it is totally creepy.
Aaaahhh!! That would freak me out too!

This is disgusting.
GROSS. So sorry! Addy throws up or at least gags a lot with bad colds too. Making a fun time even funner!

I'm not over it all yet, though and I'm still pretty upset over the whole bit. We both acknowledged that we've been under a tremendous amount of stress lately and it's actually pretty amazing that we haven't fought more. I have two really big issues with the fight. 1.) A comment he made that went something like "you don't have any money". 2.) His whole lets split up bit. He tried to explain to me why he tend to do that and said this his first reaction to any problem is to throw a grenade at it and blow it to bits. I guess he'd rather destroy it completely then face the hard issues and fix it, at least in the moment. Anyway, we have some work to do.
I'm really glad you're in a better place today. It's a great sign that he's at least examining and willing to talk about the way he fights (which I agree is totally unacceptable). We had that convo a few months back after a particularly huge blowout, and I must say that while it did not stop us from fighting, we have been fighting less explosively since then, since I've been a little more able to not freak out about some of his reactions that drive me nuts, and he's been more able to tone them down since we talked it through. I hope the same is true for you guys in the long run. And yes--it sounds like this fight was probably the result of a loooong period of HIGH stress finally finding a vent. So sorry you had to go through it but I hope it clears the air some...

All the walls are concrete throughout which was a surprise since I'm used to drywall. It's apparently really energy efficient, but I can't hammer it full of holes to put up all my pictures. I may go later this week and start collecting some paint chips to start deciding on colors. The inspection is tomorrow, so fingers crossed that it doesn't reveal any big issues.
Not wanting to leave is a GREAT sign! I sat down on the floor in our house when we went to look at it and told our agent "You can leave--I'm home now."
Yay for a warning instead of a ticket...get some sleep!

That is completely dumb Wendy about the gas. I know you can cook ground meat in the microwave, but that's about it. I don't use mine much.
Agree with both of these comments! Since it's in the freezer, can you just get something new for this week and eat that stuff next week?

Yuck, sorry Jackie. Hang in there...you're so close now!
Oh, and that video? TOO FUNNY! What a cutie

So, I'm in trouble. Adair is already getting her way through persuasive argument...she's a mini me. My parents used to call me the Philadelphia Lawyer when I was a little kid, because I could reason them into agreeing with me on almost anything! We are in soooo much trouble. Part of it is I just keep agreeing with her because I'm so impressed with her skills and it's hilariously adorable. Yesterday she wanted to smear mud on my feet while I was reading on the patio, and I said I didn't want mud on my feet. She looked at me with the perkiest face and said "Come on, mama. It will be FUN. It will be FUNNY. I will clean it up!" ....well in that case... Then later she wanted to drink a cup of open water while sitting up on a bar stool, and I said no, I didn't want her to make a mess. She said "No, mama. I will sit up there and drink it CAREFULLY." Well if you're going to throw ADVERBS at me, two year old....!
Oh my goodness, Jackie!! That crazy boy. I honestly didn't think about the kids doing that. Great, something fun to look forward to. I put those on thinking I had won the war since he can now unlock the deadbolt.
