I hope it sells quickly!!

I'm so mad, my breastpump just died on me, and I've only had it for two months! Ugh!

Hope its a quick sell!!!! I'm sure it will be after all the hard work you guys have put in.

Boo on the pump Chantelle - what kind is it? Many of them are really good about things like that and replacing things.

We had Cam's first swimming lessons this afternoon...it was super cute, and he didn't mind getting dunked! It was a good start!

Well, it's being listed. We've signed all the papers, lets get this place sold! Showings will start on Sunday.

Sorry to hear about your pump, that sucks. I hope you can get parts from the company, but that still means you're without one until then.

I'm glad Cam liked his swimming lessons.

I bet that's a weight off your shoulders Caroline! Now for strangers tramping through your space...hope it sells quick!!!

Working on DH's resume with him...he's decided its time for a change...he's been at his company for 4 years and hasn't really progressed and they've recently made it clear there won't be any room for progression for a while. So here we go with interviews etc. So stressful!

Ugg, I hate looking for a new job, interviews are so stressful. I hope he finds something he likes.

We had something out there tonight. It's been drizzling rain for most of the day, then just after I put the kids to bed it down poured. It was coming down so hard the poor girls didn't know what it was and came running downstairs scared.

The first years miPump, I had one with Sophia and loved it, and I worked full time so I had to pump a lot. It lasted me through a straight year of use (a few months with Sophia and the first few months with Hannah)- not bad for $60, so I bought another one of the same when it died, and it only lasted two months! Then I drove to the city tonight and planned to buy a different kind, but ended up having to buy the same because it was the only one they had in stock and I can't go without it while I wait for replacement parts because of work *sigh*

I hope your DH finds a job he likes quickly!

Good luck with the house sale, Caroline.

Jess, my DH has been complaining about his job incessantly as well. They do run their workers into the ground though. There was a little shake up today and supposedly they will be working only 40-hour weeks instead of the 50-55 which is the norm right now.

I have been doing a lot of planting the past few days to take advantage of the rain (and snow) that is coming in the next few days. I did 4 beds of carrots, 2 of peas, a bunch of sweet peas, and a nursery bed of lettuce, leeks and onions.

I have been able to pull up two bunches of edible carrots that were left over the winter because it was too hectic to finish all the end-of-the-year clean up with Theo as a newborn.

You've been busy!!

My DH really wants a job change too, but it's really hard in our town, there aren't many options and even less that pay what he makes now

I'm so sick! The flu has been going our area and I've got it. Most people said they felt better after a day or two but I'm going into day 3. I had a migraine yesterday to go with it because I haven't been able to eat. It's possible I would have been feeling better sooner if I'd just been able to rest, but with DS to look after and the yard work the realtor wanted done I've been pushing through instead of sleeping.

Caroline, you need to take care of yourself first! I hope this is the end of it for you

We had a TERRIBLE night. Cam is SO congested, and the drool is pouring out of his mouth...I'm guessing its not long before a tooth is going to make an appearance. I was hoping we'd go longer, but I guess I'll take 8 months. Maybe then he will sleep better!!!! I can't attribute all his horrible sleep to teething though since he's never slept well.

Winter storm watch in effect still. DH is a bit annoyed because he put stuff on the grass this weekend lol.

I hope you're feeling better soon, Caroline! Try and get some rest! (Although I know that's easier said than done!)

I hope Cam gets some relief soon, Jess!

Tired this morning, and so much to get done!

No snow left here. However 80mm of rain between yesterday and today and more expected tomorrow has everything flooded. Roads are closed it's getting so bad and lots of people who normally have dry basements now have wet ones. I have no idea how long it will take my gardens to dry up after this.
