Forever and a Day

So I am new to this and have not entered a post since my first two lame entries. Life has moved quickly by and how wonderful it is. We are expecting our first child in May. I am 25 weeks along and the baby is kicking and dancing around. We have wanted a child for many years but being 2GIL we had much to decide and agree upon. Finally we decided on a known donor and we were very lucky with getting pregnant on our second try. Unbelievable really. I will never forget the morning I peed on the stick. I knew the answer before I looked but there it was indeed the blue + !!! I opened the door and there was my honey making the morning coffee, looking at me as I stood in the doorway with a HUGE smile. "What?", she asked. "It is positive......".
She did not believe me. "Are you sure?". "I am positive."

So here we are many months later, awaiting the arrival of our son. We are thrilled and frightened, thankful and still in shock. I can not wait to meet him in person. To hold him. To hear him. To see him. To smell him, stinky sweet poopy diapers and all.
We will fall in love ... I just know it.

New House and Contractor

How is it that is it so stressful to hire a contractor to work at your house. Seems it should be simple. Here is the job we need, here is how we want it done, here is what we agree to pay you, here is when you said it would be finished. Nope.... Why must some (many) change the rules of the game while they are playing it... Change the materials agreed upon... The story is too stressful. Let's just say when I addressed the problem of the wrong thickness of drywall he hung on the walls (I had it in writing), HE got mad at ME! Swore a bit and left. I just don't think he would have done that to me were I a man. He was very angry; So who knows if he will even show up to finish the job. I guess that would save our lawn, since he has decided to park on it... not the driveway. I am talking parked fully on the lawn.... Again... I am tip toeing around this guy... he seems very volatile.

I have to tell you about our house.... but today I just feel lots of acid in my stomach, twisted and manipulated.

It is beautiful today. I love the green and the mountains.
