We've been trying to buy a condo. We found a complex we like and have bid on two different units, but no one will come down to the price we want to pay. So, we are going to try one more. If that one doesn't work out then I'm not sure what we'll do. DH is away til Sunday so we won't try again til next week.

On a slightly related note and a new confession... my mother is driving me nuts! lol She keeps sending me email links to properties, but they're usually ones I already told her about and she acts like she found them when we've already been to look at them. Or they are in towns that we have no interest in living in. I know she thinks she's helping, but its so annoying. She knows I search on the site she's sending me things from so obviously I've seen them already. One day she sent me 15 links!

You've been too busy frolicking (sp?) in the Bahamas to be house hunting!!!
I hope this other property works out for you...its been going on so long!!!

I'm sure your mom really does mean well! I'm sure she knows how upset you've been about this & she is just trying to help! Just let her know that you are getting bombarded by emails & it would help if she didn't send you so many in a day. And let her know you appreciate her help, but you're already looking on that site & if she finds another site to let you know! But I know how you feel! Mom's can be a pita sometimes, even when they don't mean it!

It does drive me nuts. I usually just ignore the emails. The worst is that I tell her I'm looking on that site or I tell her we looked at condos and then after the fact she send me the link to what I've already told her about. Then when we were making an offer on the condo she was like Oh, the one I sent to you? Like, she found it for us. I know she means well, but its annoying. Anyway, I'm excited to put in an offer on the next condo. Well see what happens...

i just stumbled accross this tthread... so i will do my part to confess too!

 

- I very much DISLIKE FI's step mother #2.... she goes around town telling people that our wedding is in Cuba and that they 'cant' come because of health reasons... and everytime im alone with her.. she takes a stab at me about the wedding.. AND whenever his 'dad' is calling its really her.. she talks FI's ear off and he ends up getting 2 mins to talk to his dad... the worst part is .. she is his dads 3rd wife.. and hasnt even been in the picture as long as I have known FI! --> id love to tell her that she is the third wife.. what makes her think there wont be a fourth? (isnt that horrible!)

 

i guess i just hate how she makes problems.. if it was just his dad id be happy

Here is my confession for the weekend wink.gif

 

So we just got a STD in the mail for one of Reggie's friends, the wedding is in September in Vail, CO...I am sure it will be just lovely...BUT I confess that I can't help but compare every detail of everything to our wedding! hee hee hee...my final thought...ehhhh our stuff (STD, website, location, etc....) Is all so much better because we are having a DW on the beach! seriously nothing can be better than that right!? blush2.gif

 

PS...this confession sort of goes along with this thread from yesterday!

Yay for the MothM banner Amanda!! You def deserve it!!

 

Ok I have to get this off my chest. My mom and I do not have a good relationship. But I can go home and visit and things are a little superficial but fine. She has not been supportive of my decision to marry, where to do it or the man I am doing it to.

 

But in an effort to keep things normal I have been lightly involving her in wedding stuff, giving her the project of getting pashminas and helped me with BM gifts.

 

She also wanted to buy my dress which I was happy for. She ended up not offering to by the first dress I fell in love with because I has initially tried it on with my step mom. Yes she is this petty. However I did end up finding a new and better dress in CO (mom lives in Chicago). I obvi was always planning on buying the dress in CO where I LIVE!! I can not being flying to Chicago for fittings all the time etc as I can not afford it and I do not have enough time off from my job.

 

SO there was a price increase happening on the dress I wanted, So I needed to order last week, I called my mom that morning saying I have to order the dress today or the price will increase $150. Can you please call me and let me know how you want to do the deposit?

 

Well, not only can I assume that she no longer wants to buy my dress as she NEVER CALLED ME BACK!!!!! I mean even if she does not want to pay .. at least call and be excited for me! I bought my dream wedding dress !!

 

I am really pissed that I am letting her ruin this time for me. I need to just realize that it is HER issues, and not let it bother me so much.
