Yes, it sounds like it's not an important call.

I think I would like to meet a couple of the potential pet sitters. I think I could do that if I came back home week after next. I do want someone who interacts well with them, but they're so shy that whoever I choose may not ever see them. They will probably just run and hide. At this point it's more important to me that they're reliable and will be here every day.

Oh, goodness, I hope the sleepover goes well. I hope they aren't too rowdy and allow you to get some sleep.

I am getting more and more sad about the move. It's been ok this week since I've been home, but I guess we'll go down to AL tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to it at all. I just want to sleep. I think I need to find a dr. down there ASAP, because I can see myself slipping easily into depression.

Oh, also, we don't have cable, internet, or phone hooked up down there yet, so it may be mid-week or later before I get back on here.

I have tried for two days to get in contact with the treasurer.

Did the treasurer ever call you back? I hate it when I miss a call that may contain important information!!!

Not much to update today. I guess Leslie and I will be joining Erik in Alabama Saturday or Sunday. This week has gone by soooo fast.

I can't remember if I told you or not, but I put an ad on care.com to try to find someone to check on my cats. I got about 30 responses! I am in the process of trying to weed out some of the ones that don't seem like a good fit, but that still leaves about 20 that I've got to choose from. My Mom is going to feed them next week, then I'm thinking I'll come back up the next week and narrow down the list and actually decide on someone. I haven't run that by Erik yet, but I'm hoping he won't mind. I think he's missed us while he's been in training.

Do you have any weekend plans?

That's a good idea to get an air purifier. We knew the apt. we saw wouldn't be the one we'd actually live in, because it was just a model. But we did expect ours to have the same amenities like size and closets. I guess I'll give it a little while, and if it's still smelling like cigarettes maybe I can start looking for another apartment in another complex. I was thinking maybe we could look for a larger one anyway before the baby arrives.

Speaking of the baby... the OB appt. went well today. The heart rate was 144, and she said that was good. I can't remember what Leslie's was at that point, but I'm thinking it was 150-ish. I'm measuring a little smaller than what I thought, so the due date is now 11/25 instead of 11/23. Won't matter anyway, because I'll have another C-section.

It sounds like you have a really good outlook on whether or not you get the job and whether or not to do continuing education. Overall, I think it's smart to wait until your kids are both in elementary school. That's only a few years, and you would have so much more time.

Our Easter was fine. It was cut short because Erik had to drive to the city where his training is located, but Leslie got her basket and we had lunch with the family, so it was all good.

With Erik not here it's a little harder to find time to spend on the computer, and it seems to come late at night when all I want to do is crawl into bed. I'm sorry about that. But I'm exhausted, so I'm going to say good night.

I'm glad the move is pretty much over for you.

Hi, Cindy. Sorry to be MIA the last several days. I really appreciate your prayers.

The move is over, although we only took about 1/4 of the stuff that was actually in our house. Just the main stuff - beds, clothes, drawers, table, couch. There's sooo much stuff left in the house.

Erik's doing his training this week, so Leslie and I are here at our house in TN. There's a lot of mess from the aftermath of the move, but I decided I've got weeks and months to deal with that, so I've been snoozing, watching TV, eating out, and just generally relaxing. It's been a pretty good couple of days. It's so weird to be here without our things. There's a lot left here, but we took the important things. For instance, I change Leslie's diaper on the loveseat because her changing table is gone.

The apartment is disappointing. It's not as good as the model we looked at - fewer closets, reeks of cigarette smoke, seems smaller. So many of the neighbors smoke, too. The night we stayed there, my throat and nostrils swelled up, my throat got sore, and I had to breathe through my mouth all night long. Leslie got some congestion, too. I truly hope it's not like that the whole time we live there. I hope it was just allergies that we can treat with Claritin or something. If it doesn't get better, I think we'll definitely be looking for a new place when our lease is up in October. But how can you guarantee you'll get a place where there were no smokers?

Tomorrow is my first OB appt. I'm hoping for a really good appt. to put me in better spirits.

I hope all is well with you. I guess it's too early to hear anything about the job? Have you thought anymore about continuing education?

Did you all have a good Easter?

I've got to get the recycling to the street. That's usually Erik's job, but since he's not here...

I don't know of anyone who would be willing to take in four cats.
