yes! no. yes! no. okay, yes. no, definitely no.

We were back and forth on the house thing (see below) these past few days. We had the inspection--worse than I wanted and better than I hoped. We weren't going to do it. Then we decided we were. Then we mutually agreed we WEREN'T after I finally got a gut feeling. Normally I have a really good direction in life but I just could not get a "read" on this house for the life of me. I finally decided that no gut feeling meant a bad gut feeling, and Adam and I discussed it and decided NO. Then he calls me an hour later with "That was your decision earlier! You coerced me! I really want to do it!"

Yeah. I'm being serious.

I tell him I'm fine either way. Do what you want. Just let me know what you need me to do. So he calls the realtor and says "Changed my mind, we ARE going through with it..." and then calls me on my way home to tell me the house is "unlendable"!! Great! Apparently the issues with the inspection are issues that render it impossible to finance. Would've been nice to know before!

So, no second house for us. That's okay though. This now means we can plan a trip to see my grandparents (who I haven't seen in SIX YEARS, and who have never met Adam) and also go to Vegas for Anna's 21st birthday in October. I need a vacation!!!

Last night we went to Gary Airport to watch the air show planes practice. It was AWESOME. Check out pics here at B's photoset.

What else... B did her first wedding photography gig over the weekend. It was pretty fun, I hope to do more with her in the future! Tomorrow I have my childbirth class at St. Anthony's. YAY! That much closer to my doula training...

Oh wow. Well, that was good that you had someone just decide the answer for you. I am the same way with my gut about everything- I am sure it's annoying to some people, but it's so important to me!

I grew up loving airplanes because my dad is so into planes. We recently saw some bombers over at the Valpo airport... and someday a goal of mine is to get my pilot's license!
