Every time I start a post it becomes some rambling diatribe on how much bedrest sucks or how I'm trying not to panic about our housing situation.

Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.


Condo sold.
Offer on new place didn't work out.

The closing date and our move-out deadline is fast approaching. I thought we had a brilliant short-term rental option lined up, but Bump is worried the place is not workable for us.

So here's our status: we need to move - probably twice - into places yet to be determined.

Then there's the small matter of another baby arriving soon-ish. I can't fill out the hospital pre-registration form because I'm not sure what our address will be. I'm contracting every once in awhile and really grumpy. Everything just kind of hurts.

Well, that was a real downer. Here's a picture of the tormentors in South Carolina.

Lots of awesome houses on the market in my neighborhood *hint hint*

Adorable pics of the kiddies. Almost makes the bedrest worth it knowing another cute one is on the way.

Sorry to hear you're feeling down. Moving sucks at the best of times, and it's not even the best of times for you right now. I'm sure something will work out, but I'll be sending you lots of good house hunting and baby vibes until everything settles down.

teh cuteness! it burns! it burnssssss!

vuboq has a spare room if you ever need it. I'm sure its 40 sq ft could house 5 quite comfortably!

We had friends who were in the process of moving (taken possession of the new house, which needed LOTS of cleaning and work) and had half packed up their apartment when her doctor decided that the twins needed to come out RIGHT NOW, TODAY. So when she left the hospital, she and the twins checked into a Residence Inn-type place for a week while her husband and friends (many of us) cleaned the new house and moved them in. It wasn't pretty but they made it and all is dandy today, six years later.

Hoping that the housing works out soon and that you and the kids don't end up in a suite hotel somewhere when you're newly released from the hospital.

I can not imagine bedrest, I think I would go insane.

Good luck finding something great and minimizing your move-move again action.

Come stay with us on the farm! We can through your tormentors, and my tormentors, in our new chicken pen and sip mojitos. We'll pretend they are virgin mojitos.

Moving is stressful even without bed rest. I'm thinking about you and wish I could do something tangible to help.

Excellent Princess Bride reference -- well done!

I'm sorry about all the suckiness. How weird is it that you can sell a place but not buy one -- isn't it supposed to be a buyer's market? Did your sellers not get that memo?

I hope you find the perfect place soon!

On the upside, your kids are getting cuter and cuter. This third one will be a real hum-dinga.
