What a Roller Coaster!


I'm thinking of pitching an idea to Lagoon for their next big roller coaster. It would go up and down and upside down and make people really happy and incredibly depressed. I would call it "Twin Pregnancy Hormones."



Seriously folks. Sorry I take it all out on my blog (and consequently on all of you who are kind enough to read it.) Last night after a good cry and a call to my mother (sadly enough for my mom those things usually happen in succession like that) I am feeling much better. I've been reminded of a few things:




Twins easily can share a crib for 5 months (thanks for reminding me Kim). I have 2 really cute crib bumpers Beth gave me (thanks Beth). Plus, in all actuality crib bumpers aren't used for that long. Maybe Maggie is just insane (as mentioned previously) but she started removing them herself at 11 months. And really I don't think I'll be wanting to walk further than the bathroom and the bassinet for at least a month so a stroller can wait, too. I'll just keep reading my twin books and taking deep breaths. The book I was reading last night recommended taking three 30 minute naps per day throughout pregnancy. I told Dan and he laughed. I mean, who can do that? A pregnant lady with a maid, no job, and no children. But if any of you would like to try it, let me know how it goes. Sounds heavenly.


But its not just twin preparations that have me going. It's also this:
We walked through it on Saturday, made an offer that night, and then our offer got accepted yesterday. That's fast. And now I'm FREAKED. I mean seriously, I've never been in debt before and now I'm signing away my life for the next 30 years? Dan assures me that we won't die from mortage pains. I hope he's right. [Hopefully Jesus will come soon and free us all of our mortgages. Did I mention I'm voting for Jesus this election? Jesus/Romney '08. Feel free to join me. If he gets enough votes maybe he'll come early.]

Well, I'm dealing better with my stresses today, how are yours?

woo hoo a house!! How exciting! It looks great.
And I think you're handling your stresses better than I'm handling mine. You're doing great.

We'll be there with bells on to help you move. That is, if you want or need us. Well, Christopher, not so much me and my awkward pregnant self. I can clean with the best of them, though. Jesus '08. I'll start making T-shirts.

What a wonderful strategy for hastening the Second Coming.

Megan-Congrats on the house. We are really going to miss you! I love reading your blog. You are really a talented writer. It makes my day to read your blog. You will handle everything, you always do. Just take a deep breath, make a list of what HAS to be done and just take them one at a time. If you need help with ANYTHING-call. Mel :)

Yay for a cute house! (What happened w/the other one!?) I like this one- it's really cute!! When do you close? You're right about all the things you mentioned--Steve's mom has a bassinet you could borrow if you need another one! That's one thing I've experienced around Kirksville, don't purchase tons of crap--just borrow everyone else's! You're doing great Megs--keep your chin up! Call me if you want to chat! (or text me and I'll call you!) :)

The other house was an expensive fixer-upper (except the kitchen that was the only nice part). We really like its potential, but after we found out about the twins and the owners wouldn't drop the price we decided we didn't want to put in the effort. We'll already have enough work on our hands.

Emily said...

It's beautiful!!!! You'll be better off then us for sure! You'll have an income!LOL Megan, You are beautiful, and miracles happen when you need them... I tell myself that everyday to get over the bumps - minus the Megan part of course:O). I thought you might like to hear it too because it is so very true about you.

I love the house even more than the other one. Where is this one? Maybe I just missed it. When do you move in? I saw a lady with twin babies today and man was she getting a ton of attention. Just think, everyone is going to give you even more attention than they already do! You'll be famous!

Home ownership is stressful, but, fun! Good luck!

Gram, that's me said...

Congratulations on the new house. And Dan is correct, you will not die from mortgage pains. I remember the first mortgage I signed and I'm still here. (Scott's Mom)

Ems said...

congratulations on the house! that is so exciting Megan and good call on taking worries one day at a time.

Hi Hinckleys!
I'm an old friend of Dan's, and blog-stalked my way to your site. Congrats on a beautiful family! Good luck with the coming TWINS and your cute new home--so exciting!

I'll help you move, too, but I'll be darned before I'll come with bells on, k?
Mortgages are so fun, Megan. You have no idea. Every month when I pay ours, it's like a heroine hit, I swear.

The Tuck Family said...

Megan I seriously love your sense of humor and your wit.....Jesus and Romney 08' it is!

K said...

Isn't it stinking that the things in our lives that should be the most exciting/exhilarating are instead the most exciting/terrifying????

But it looks like a happy house. And Ginna is right, you are handling things better than she is. She is a mess. Freaking out. she's not half as funny as you are. But then, who is????

And I will vote for Jesus too. I'm glad somebody in your family gives Romney a chance.
