The more I thin about this, the scarier it is; Aaron and I are not that different. That right there scares the beejeezus out of me.

I love him dearly, mind you, but he is a bit of a loony. He tends to find things to obsess over and once he gets on them, it's pretty much impossible to distract him for more than a millisecond. For example. His to-do lists: He will sit there for hours and hours shuffling things around and figuring out the order of things as he goes along, checking things off. House hunting: He knows every house on sale in the areas that we're interested in and knows when they drop in price or have new photos uploaded.

Where do the similarities come in? Ah-ha... For the last week I have been looking into anything and everything out there on the whole baby planning thing. I've even restarted putting entries on The Bump. I noticed I still have the blog that I started on The Knot. It's connected to The Nest as well. I'm apparently in the TTC segment. Yeah you'd think it'd figure out what TTC stands for sooner, right. Not so much. It took me till today to realize it means Trying To Conceive. Duh.

But, I digress. So yeah, I've been reading over dozens upon dozens of articles on WebMD (By the way, I'm now convinced I may have every ailment out there including an enlarged prostate and possibly rickets, thanks to all the damn scary-ass articles on there). I've also made my way through Fit Pregnancy, Pregnancy, Women's Health and yes, The Bump. And I've started expanding on my original to-do list. (Ta-dah) This was once a shortish list. No longer. The thing now runs into a third page. I've crossed things off already, mind you.

Ah well. I suppose it was bound to happen. I mean, you spend enough time with a person and some of their quirks are bound to rub off on you, right?

Lord, I still say that's a scary thought.

Oh yes, so here's where we stand on the whole house hunting thing; when we get home from Bermuda (we're taking off at the end of the month. Woo!), we're opening a new savings account and piling as much as possible in there. We've narrowed the search down to a handful of towns based on school systems and we've created a list of things we want and things we do not want in a house. Hopefully by the time summer rolls around, we'll be able to actually check out potential homes.

See, the obsession is contagious.

not obsessed, just planning well sot hat you achieve my goals... (says the one who re-adjusts her budget DAILY and logs into all her various accounts to check balances a few times a day)

You can do it! There is nothing wrong with a healthy obsession when it comes to something you really want. :-)
