Can't Wait...

Okay I have to vent!!! (don't read this post if you don't feel like hearing A LOT of complaining!...no, I'm serious...it is that time of month and I have a lot to say right now) I CANNOT wait to have my OWN house!! For any of you that don't know we are living in a gorgeous house but we are just renting from my dad who is flipping it. It is so nice to be out of an apartment and actually have a kitchen....BUT WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PRIVACY!!! I am having such a hard time with this! I understand that my dad owns the house and is fixing it up...he is here usually everyday doing stuff and I am TOTALLY fine with that...I have to be!!

Well tonight Christian and I get home and find stuff out of place. Our house was messy when we left and so it is so embarrassing that my dad would let ALL of my aunts* in the house to look around. How would you feel to have someone come to your house when you are not there and look in your closet and drawers...and they even stacked my dishes!! I have always felt self conscious around them anyways so to have them see my house messy is driving me CRAZY!! And to top it off they left a note on my computer reminding me of what a mess my house is (jokingly of course).

I just can't stand to have my personal life so available to anyone that my dad wants to let in the house. I love my dad but he just happens to bring people over when I have had a busy day and I haven't gotten around to picking up. I feel like I am constantly cleaning and I feel like crap when people see the house like this!

So I can't wait to have my own place. I can't wait until Christian and I are the only ones that know the garage code...the only ones that have a key... I NEED SOME PRIVACY!!!!!!

*To my aunts that read this blog: Don't be offended by this post...I know that you really don't care about a messy house and you were only joking when you wrote the note. This post is just to vent!

Nichole. I totally understand. I would be pissed if someone came in my house without my knowledge. (we hoped you would be there- but it was a spur of the minute decesion to go over there) Everyone of us has messy houses at various times. Seriously it's not a big deal. But yes I see how you don't have privacy and thats pretty stressful.
I didn't know about the note but I'm sorry if you felt bad, we in no way wanted that.
Your Dad just needs to hurry and get that house done.
Hope you have a better day.

Nicole,
Cute site!! Now I feel like mine is LAME!!! Anyway, I did update it for the first time in two months. I can 0nly imagine what it is like having someone in your space all the time. Everyone needs some privacy! Hope you are having a great day! By the way...How do you make a list of your friends blogs on your front page??

nichole, we really didn't think anything of it (you should have seen my house when I got home). We just really wanted to see the house. Plus I REALLY understand, i have 3 kids home ALL the time, so i feel the same way, always cleaning. It's never-ending until your kids are grown up and out of the house, then we'll probably miss them and their mess :).

I wrote the note and was totally kidding and I assumed you would know I did it because of our previous drawers conversation. We really did think you were there and just so you know Grandma was really not comfortable just going in without you there and she thought is was rude. I feel bad if you ever feel self conscious around us....that is lame....none of us would ever judge you negatively. Our whole world revolved around you for a time and those feelings never change. Its somewhat like how you feel about Ava. And for the record we didnt look in any drawers and your Dad did that with the dishes. I completely understand how you would hate that and we should have thought beyond our own curiousity to see your house and thought of how you would have felt. Your mom and Dad will never stop giving you a hard time about everything you do but that is in no way how we feel. I know I speak for all of us in this because we talked about it later. Nellie and I talked about inviting you to go with us in the first place but didnt want to hurt any other nieces feelings. I hope you do not feel stupid because we all went in but thought it was rude too and I would hate not having privacy. Lastly, people who dont do it have absolutely no clue what it is like to stay home with kids all day and that your house stays really clean if no one is in it all day but otherwise its a constant cleaning frenzy and it still never seems done.
We love you whether your house gets cluttered or not and just as a side note it wasnt all of your aunts....Kristi wasnt there (: (: (I hope you get a chuckle out of that at least)
Love

Oh Nichole, I'm sorry! I totally rely on knowing when people are coming over because that's the only time I clean my apartment!! If I thought someone could come over at any moment I would go nuts (second reason being I don't get ready until I have something I need to do... what can I say I'm a bit of a slob). I hope you don't feel bad about it. I actually think I would prefer it happened when I wasn't there so I wouldn't have to be so embarrassed in person. :)
By the way Eva is darling (love the name btw) and your blog is super cute.

oh boy do I know how you feel! It's the most frustrating thing in the world but I'll tell you what, when you do get your own house you will apprecaite it more than you even know. So hang in there!

Vent all you want my friend. I think I would be pretty crazy about that. I can't wait until I have my own house too. Well I am still trying to find some time to get up north and come see you guys. Hopefully soon Chet and I can figure something out.
