I suppose we are ready for baby. We still have a few more Bradley classes to attend and a car seat to buy but other than that I feel pretty ready. Ready to get this baby out of me. Everything was going alright until he started kicking me in the ribs. Not nice baby, not nice at all.
My friends threw me a wonderful baby shower. This kid has lots of love coming from everywhere. California love, Florida love, Hawaii love, this kid is destined to be a beach bum. I remember those days. I hope I get to spend the time on the beach like my mom did with us. I remember running around diaper free and loving it.
On the house front we are trying to decide what to do. Our cute little tudor that we love and work so hard on is not worth the paper the mortgage company uses to send us the bills. Its hard to pay so much for something every month that is so underwater. Do we short sale? Do we walk away? Do we buy something else and go through all the same hell we have been through with this house? I don't know.
My friend Tracy calls me a "planner", she is right. Its hard for me to live in limbo. The morally correct thing to do would be to stay and pay. We agreed on the price, we bought the house, done deal. Except when you look at all the options and what other people are doing its hard to be the one that does the right thing. I mean its not like I'm going to get a gold star by my name because we made all of our payments. It only makes us feel stupid for paying so much when other people are getting such good deals.
We have 1 year to figure it out. That's when our mortgage GOES UP even more. Thanks to the awesome loan that we were sold. Honesty though at the time it was a good price for the house, and the loan was not that bad either. But man times have changed. Any of you guys having the same problems?
