Wow. I am not very good at this blogging thing. Life happens and I stop. Obviously it’s not the biggest priority in my life….or maybe it’s just that life has been extra crazy? I will catch you up and you decide.
It might not seem like a big thing but the cold!!! Ah! It’s been so cold and so wet here! It really dampens my mood. Ugh. My face tells you how I feel about driving in snow in April.
I guess we will start with our living situation. One normal night we were in our beds sleeping with the window open letting fresh cool air in and all the sudden I hear this horrifyingly loud noise coming from outside. I was frozen. Was it an earthquake? Was it a car crash? Was it a car crashing into our apartment? Was it something I just couldn’t comprehend? All I knew was I frozen for about 20 seconds . David however spring out of bed quicker than a cat and was at the window frantically trying to see what was happening.
Then it was over. We still weren’t sure. He said he was going to go outside and look around. I called him back and said I had a yucky feeling and that I wanted him to stay here for a minute.
After a while of looking out windows and speculating we finally saw our neighbors (who happen to be the managers) outside talking with our other downstairs neighbor.
Longer story, shorter…a drunken, high physcho boyfriend of our downstairs neighbor had kicked in her window, (2 layers if thick glass!) crawled through it (without hurting himself) and strated to beat her.
He apparently took off because his story to the managers was that someone else broke in and he had to chase them off. Eventually the cops came and questioned everyone and then the search was on. They caught him which was great BUT the darn judge set his bail very very low and so he was released that very same day. Now she has a restraining order for him.
They day they brought a photo of him around to everyone and said “keep an eye out for him and if you see him on the premises call 911 right away”…was the end if it for me. We moved out that night.
Thankfully my parents were kind enough to let us bunk with them if only temporaryily.
My sweet neighbor is doing ok. I feel pretty guilt about leaving her there but I knew sleeping good would be over for me if we stayed. She had a good bruise in the side of her head but she is tough.
So now we are on the hunt for our own place.
We were planning on moving out this summer anyway, so I guess this experience just hurried things a bit.
The next big news is that we are expecting baby #3!!!!
During this whole scary moving experience I was not feeling well at all…it was rough. And all new to me because with my first two babies I felt pretty darn great.
Grrrrrrrrrrrr. This is hard. I have so much more empathy for women who are sick during pregnancy.
But we are so excited.
Around this time we also had to plan David’s Graduation party. I had sent out invites already and it was happening! Don’t get me wrong I was so happy this was FINALLY happening but since I had become pregnant and not feeling great my motivation and umph to get this party going basically disappeared.
THANK HEAVENS FOR MY SIL MERICAR!
She took over and saved me.
She is an amazing party planner and cook and the party was more than I could have imagined! I may have to save that for another post altogether. What a great day !
This is where I announced I was pregnant to all the family and friends that were there. It was fun.
So anyway you can see now maybe why I have MIA from my blog.
The only stress I feel now is finding our own place which is not an easy thing to do in cache valley right now. The competition is fierce.
Wish us luck, send a prayer or two. I don’t know but hopefully things work out…I know they always do the way they are supposed to.
