Oh What? You Thought I'd Have An Answer By Now?

I'm not sure what is going to happen first...

Getting an answer...

or...

My mind imploding from the constant stress/pressure/excitement of waiting for an answer.


I am remaining grounded (ish). I am trying to think of all the negatives of even the most positive outcome (the only defensive mechanism I have left). There can always be a downside if you need there to be one.

More money?... we've grown so much from our financial struggles!

Full benefits?... who needs that!

You see? See how many downsides there are if you look hard enough.


No, seriously, there will be very real stress either way. Just new stress... which... might be somewhat lessened by being able to afford takeout again.


In other news I have NOT gotten all badass on myself. Yesterday, when I put on my jeans, Mr F actually said "Those look a little tight." Isn't it against the law for husbands to reveal that kind of honesty?! (It should be.) I blame the candy corn, Halloween M&Ms, fun size Twix, & peanut butter cups (WHAT?!!! there was a freaky sale). Well I'm over the candy. I had enough and I'm going on a candy free binge until ACTUAL Halloween. I pinkie swear.

I finished Kid's costume. And, ladies & gentlemen, it is all kinds of impressive. I have skipped the beading... since... Kid didn't notice there wasn't any... and who am I to remind her? That cut out HOURS of labor. I might even make Baby a matching costume with the extra ultra suede... or new couch pillows... it's kind of tough call.

And my Dad & his wife arrive on Thursday. And my Mom & her husband arrive on Saturday. I actually think that's a good arrangement. We just need to find appropriate beds for everyone. And try not to spend a gazillion dollars on food. I'll be putting on my thinking cap in regard to that today.

Oh and Kid's birthday is on Saturday and I need to start putting some kind of thought into that as well.

I hate waiting...it is so hard...

Hope things go smoothly with the parents coming in.

Oh God! I didn't mean the pants looked too tight/small, but only a response to your comment at the time, and that you don't normally wear jeans that are "tight."

As for the waiting...I am at such an elevated stress level/heartrate/adrenaline/etc that ANY news will be a relief from the way I feel now.

I had hoped you would have heard by now!!!!

Tight pants!!!!! I am not going there considering it takes HANNAH forever to put on her skinny jeans!!

Thinking about you Mrs and Mr F! Here's to good news.

The suspense is killing me... I've been hoping you'd post an answer!

Hopefully the distraction of Halloween, Kid's b-day and company will help.

Mrs Furious said...

Nutmeg,
