I haven't been around here so much lately. I have some big changes in my life going on this year.
This was/is the year of the move for my wife and I. We were originally planning on buying a house this year. And after that or next year we were going to work on having our first child. So my wife decided we would stop trying not to have a kid and just let life happen.
Well once we removed the goalie I scored on the very first shot!!! ahhh... oh boy... lol.
Its good though, we have a baby girl due on november 9th!!
But we still need to find a place to live. We live in San Francisco and housing prices are still crazy even with the market being down. Problem is not very many houses are on the market because the value has dropped. I would say 75% of the houses we have looked at have had nasty urine stains through out the house. I'm mean really? What kind of people don't take their animals outside to go to the bathroom? And all these houses have yards, lots with fenced in back yards. I am still baffled by this.
Anyway any decent houses have like 15 people trying to bid on them. We placed a couple of bids in with no luck. and only one did we really want. This realtor countered us with such a crazy number I felt like punching her in the face for being retarded. She actually had boasting up on her website saying how bidding wars were back. Ok but the number she gave us was an insane number that was 50% more then what she called an extreme case on her site. I was pissed at this lady and just walked from this house even though she tried calling my realtor for a few days asking us to counter. I had to bite my tongue and tell my realtor that she doesn't want me to respond.
Anyways, so we think we have decided to not buy during the first year of our childs life as its just too crazy right now for us. We could afford a little more, but with the baby coming we're not really sure that we can. As everything we look at needs a bunch of work. Work I am ok with but buying supplies I may not be. Its just if we buy our saving will be depleated and the cost of a baby makes this feel impossible. Plus it has been stressing us out to no end. Neither of us are originally from California so we don't have any family that can help with watching the kid.
So we have been looking at apartments again. And My wife that has sworn she hates our current place, due to size, has finally come to the realization that our place is way better then most things out there. But it is a little small for a family. So we will be looking at a few apartments this weekend. These will be in bigger complexes that won't be as private as we would like, but I think its our best option as of now. Close to her work and should make taking care of the baby a little easier.
Anyway I just wanted to post this to say I don't have a big interest in phones lately and may not be around too much. But that depends on what/where we decide to live. I'm not even sure if I'm going to upgrade my phone at this point. Though we really want that new camera coming in the new evo.
Sorry for the long post but I needed to vent a little. Plus I wanted to share with all of you cool cats on this site. I have been feeling stressed,confused, depressed and excited all at the same time...
