#MicroblogMondays 57

  • The day after I wrote the last post, MM and I had a long talk about our plans to list our house and buy the larger house we'd found and decided that now just isn't the right time, for a number of logistical and financial reasons. So that plan is on hold for at least another 18 months.
  • We were both a little bummed to miss out on the house we liked, but in the short term, I'm really glad to not have to deal with the stress of sprucing up our current house, keeping it showing-ready indefinitely and then moving. Ugh.
  • MM had a cold over the weekend, and I woke up with congestion and a scratchy throat this morning. Darn him! I've had a surprising stretch of no illnesses, too: nothing since the GI virus the boys shared with me in early July.
  • I am proud to report that I have walked at least 30 minutes, between 1.75 and 2 miles, at least 4 mornings every week for the past 3 weeks. Probably doesn't sound like much to anyone who exercises regularly, but I have been out of the habit of regular exercise since I got pregnant with my sons, so this is a big deal to me.


  1. Sorry the house didn't work out, but I'm sure you will eventually find something else that you like. I can relate to this post -- my dh & I have talked in the past about downsizing to a condo -- but it was always a "someday" sort of thing. Well, dh has decided that he's tired of mowing grass and shovelling snow, and "someday" is now, or at any rate, soon. It probably won't be until next spring -- we have a lot of work to do on our current home before we can put it up for sale. We've seen a couple of nice condos online that have come & gone, but we know we're just not ready to dive in just yet -- and there will be others in the future!

    Also, good for you on the walking! Dh & I have been walking for 30-45 minutes, about 4 times a week, since I lost my job last year (we had to stop during the winter months because it's just too cold & snowy, but we walked from July through mid-November last year, and picked it up again in late March this year). We are not the most active couple, but this is something that's easy to do & we both enjoy. I am currently about 15 pounds lighter than when I stopped working. I need to lose a lot more, of course, but it's a start, and it feels good. :)

  2. Congratulations on the exercise front.

    I'm sorry the house didn't work out, but moving IS so much work. Especially when you have to sell a place.

  3. Sorry the time wasn't right for this house, but when you're ready there will be another perfect house. Congrats on the exercise, every bit helps!
