Welcome to a post with completely random topics and tidbits, none of which deserve a post of their own.
A couple of people have asked if we will be revealing the lists of baby names that we've got going. Unfortunately, no. Several family members read this blog (even if they never comment - hi, sis!) and we want to keep any possible names a secret. Sorry, folks! If I had my way, we'd keep the gender a secret until I get out of recovery from the c-section, but seeing as the babies are naked in the nursery for a couple of hours after birth, I don't think that's possible.
Our minds have been made up on the stay or move issue. We will be moving. In fact, we're hoping to go look at a couple of houses next weekend. There are two we're really interested in.
House A: 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage, one story, hardwood floors in living area, ready to move in, impeccable condition
House B: 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2 car garage, two story, carpet throughout, play room upstairs, larger yard than House A, foreclosure (likely to get a good deal but have to move fast), needs some work/updating
Both houses are in the neighborhood we really want to move to (good schools, easier commute for Ryan). Keep your fingers crossed!!
As for our current house, we're hoping to keep it and rent it out. Our not selling it does cap the amount the bank will loan us for a mortgage on our next house, but we're hoping the extra income we get will more than make up for it.
And....Happy St. Patrick's Day!
