Home Sweet Home

So I forgot to mention, what with being totally preoccupied with the baby still firmly trapped in my uterus, that we settled on the house this week! We are officially home owners! I own this:

And this:

And most importantly, this:

More than any other thing house related, I cannot wait to soak in this tub. And I will probably do so, at the huge inconvenience of my husband and family, the first night we're there. It's all big and deep and jets! It has jets!

I'm also looking forward to being able to play outside with Sam by simply walking out the door. No elevators, parking lots or cars required to get to some green space. The kid loves to blow bubbles, and the only time we can do so is during bath time. The rest of the time we have to hide the bubbles because if he spies them he tries to throw himself head first into the tub. We're going to buy him one of these, put it in the yard and let him go nuts! And then I'm going to spray him down with the hose in the yard and my life will be perfect.


By the by, I've been remiss about participating in the blog community lately. If you've noticed, please don't be offended. I am still reading all of my regular blogs, but haven't been able to come up with my any witty, thoughtful nuggets of wisdom to add to the comments. It's because my mind is busy focusing on an image of my cervix opening like a lotus blossom. I hope you'll understand!

Oh, Amy, what a beautiful house. I am officially jealous.

May your, erm, lotus flower open soon.

I love your house. I can show you pictures of my new apartment, but it doesn't look like that.

Yay! Hooray! Huzzah!

(We're awfully excited to know you'll soon have a mortgage payment that will force you guys to come back!)

How have I missed all this excitement? What have been doing all week??? Whereabouts is the house? Looks unreal...very English actually. I hate to admit it but we have a spa bath and in the 2 years we've lived here I could count the times I've used it on one hand! :-D The last time Himself got in we discovered it had stopped working. We still haven't fixed it.Hope you make better use of yours!
