Letting the cat out of the bag

I know I’ve been distracted lately, and not blogging as often as normal (causing Beau great boredom and forcing him to resort to playing the game where he puts tupperware on his head instead of reading my blog all day long). I haven’t even mentioned the Bucs 30 – 27 victory over Atlanta on Sunday which gave me great joy.

I’ve been a little bit preoccupied with another project. We are going to be moving at the end of December. I’ve been trying to get this house ready to sell, and also trying to buy a house up in the Washington D.C. area. I don’t remember buying this house being so emotionally draining. Maybe it is because we are going so far this time, maybe it is because our family is twice as big, maybe it is the selling part that is hard, or maybe it is because I am leaving my parents this time.

Anyway – now you all know. Don’t tell Gabe’s current job. I’d hate to get him dooced.

  1. If I give Gabe a T-shirt, will he stay too?

  2. Our last buy/sale was totally emotionally draining as well. I think its all of the above. Plus some other things. But we wish you luck! My Dad wants to know if you need an Irish or Polish (read: Catholic) icon to pray to for a quick house sale….St. Joseph!

  3. Just comfort yourself in knowing that you are going to live in the Seat of World Democracy–Washington, D.C.

    Or at least, it will hopefully be the Seat of Democracy once again after Bush is out of office. In the meantime, it’s the Toilet Seat of World Democracy.

    Oh well, at least you’re getting away from Jeb.

  4. I’ve always thought it was kind kind of embarassing that I was born during the Nixon presidency. Then The Squad was (were?) born and they had Bush as the president and the little more fascist Bush as their governor, and that is way more humiliating.

  5. good point sarah….good point

    i was also a nixon baby. i would actually take him, believe it or not, over president dumbass.

  6. Maybe it’s the timeline that’s causing the pressure this time. If it doesn’t sell, consider advertising it for rent at McDill’s housing office. There’s nothing better than responsible military renters – they’re paying the mortgage on our house in St. Louis right now.

    Is Gabe planning to tell his work soon?

  7. Out house is a little too far to commute to MacDill, but too bad, that is a really good idea.

  8. Sarah, this will pass. The twins will get easier – they will almost entertain each other. If that fails, you can do what we did – have a third child. That really gets their attention off of you.

    All this is tounge in cheek. You have a lot going on right now, but in a few months it will be all but forgoten. Just hang in there and enjoy your kids.

  9. Glove – It is already sooooooooo much easier than the first year. The third kid idea really sounds like a hassle.

    So, who wants to help us move?

  10. I promise it gets easier with each passing year, but don’t let these good yeras pass you by.

    I would love to help you move, but I have 3 kids. I volunteer MISTER hand and Meatbag.

  11. Oh, it’s also football season, can’t help.

  12. sarah – we will miss you down here in the southeast! i’m glad you’re excited. i am still blown away. happy thanksgiving!

  13. I wish you all of the best in getting the buy/sale to go well. I know how hard it is (did it 4 times myself).

  14. I live in Fredericksburg, VA right now. It’s a hell of a commute to DC, but a lot of people do it.

    And here’s to responsible military renters! (That would be me.)

  15. Maybe it will be easier for you to attend our next Wine Tasting Party.
    I always try to avoid flying from DC though — superstitious. DC and Chicago — No Way.
    Have you been to DC much?
