Well, we’re still working on trying to be able to move. It come down to both job-transferring and an apartment being available at the same time. We almost had everything lined up, but then the contact lady was an idiot and didn’t get back to Cody for THREE WEEKS, by which time someone else had been hired. That location is full of green people who don’t have enough training. They really needed all the transfers they could get. Now the only position open is a senior assistant manager position. He’s checking every single day for openings anywhere in that area, and I’m checking multiple times a day for apartments. We had one we really loved, but had to speak with Jen regarding the transfer for his job. It was at that point that it took her three weeks, by which time everything fell apart.
So it’s looking more like we’ll be staying here, which is far less than ideal for many reasons. If we stay here, we’ll be far away from any family, and so I’ll be recovering from surgery and caring for a newborn completely on my own. I don’t have any friends in this area I can call up and ask for help. They’re all in other states (damn the lack of teleportation machines). And Cody’s family would help – if we were local. Which we’re not. I’m not looking forward to spending nine or ten hours alone every day during the last trimester and then nine or ten hours a day alone post-surgery. It’s not going to be safe. I’m going to have to see if insurance will cover a part-time nurse or something. Before anyone says that many people have c-sections and are just fine, most don’t have my medical history, and most have help locally. I do not.
I have no idea how we’re going to fit baby stuff into this apartment. It’s not large, not by a long shot. I supposed we could set the living room up as our bedroom and use the bedroom for a nursery? There really isn’t enough space in the bedroom for both our stuff and a baby’s stuff. I don’t know where we would put the couches from the living room. They’re nice leather things imported from Italy. I don’t want to have to throw the away or sell them. I’m seeing few options right now though. We have a small bedroom with a window on one wall, the door to the living room on another, and a short hall to the bathroom, closet, and washer/dryer on another. This:
Our bed and two nightstands take up the wall with the window. A larger dresser is on the corer straight in front of the door.
A nursery here isn’t possible, but we have to figure out something we can do in case we don’t get to move. And it’s just looking more like we’ll be staying here. I am extremely unhappy about this. Any ideas for making the best of things would be appreciated.
