Dear St. Louis,
Our first interview went well, we liked their kids (they had girls to play with my girls and that gave them BONUS points) and we enjoyed their company. They don't seem super odd (just odd enough to hang out with us).
We do have some more openings for "friend interviews" if anyone is interested they should fill out an application and it will be "reviewed" (so basically if I don't get back to you it's just a nice way of saying we don't want any)
The house is still coming along, the waterproofing is done, and the rooms are worked on right now, BUT the carpet was backordered so it won't be in till the middle of August. (Totally stinky, but what do you do!)
If anyone has the sudden urge to unpack something, please come my way, because we sure have a bunch still to unpack. I don't think we will be done anytime soon. Actually I'm just waiting 5 months or so till the "nesting" sets in, and then suddenly I will get all the boxes unpacked in like 2 hours. I always find it amazing what you can do that last month of pregnancy when preparing for your baby monster.
For all of you wondering if this is STILL the Grande Finale, the answer is yes.
Also, we find out next month what we are having. And we have decided that we will find out and then not tell anyone. It's a different kind of surprise. I always like to know how the book is going to end, so this way I'll still get to know how this one is going to come out, but YOU will be surprised. (I know, I have such great ideas sometimes... i even surprise myself)
So overall we are enjoying St. Louis. We love being around family, and we can tell that at some point in the future there is hope that we will find friends.
But really, there are some questions you should ask yourself before applying to be our friend:
1.) Do you mind naked 4 year old boys? My son has been know to come out of the bathroom with no pants on. Is this something that we encourage? No. But it is our reality and it comes with being part of the Wehrmeister entourage.
2.) Do you mind random singing of show tunes? This would be a Jen disorder. Any word at any moment could have her singing. Once again, this is not something we encourage.
3.) Do you mind going to the dentist. Because you see everytime you come to our house you are in fact going to the Dentist. And although that does go against everything I believe in, if I can adjust I think our friends should be able to.
4.) Do you mind "Making yourself at Home" this is my nice way of saying "I'm not going to help you, so if you want it you get it." I am normally much more hospitable, but this whole growing baby, feel like crap thing is getting to me right now.
5.) Oh and then there are those that love Activities. I am normally one of those, but right now our biggest activity is napping. So if you want me to go rock climbing you should wait till next July to apply for this friendship, because come December I will be the size of a boulder, so I don't need to be climbing one.
I'm sure there are many other reasons why people should not apply to be our friend, but I am too lazy to write out anymore.
Also, next entry I will add pictures, NOT pics of my house yet, but still pics.
