   So tell me, what's on your mind?  Would you like to know what is currently on mine?  No?  Bummer, because I already wrote out a whole post about it.  Oh well, take it or leave it.


   Do any of you have any idea how hard it is to buy a glider?  It is hard.  Very hard.  Especially hard when you have a disease like me, and that disease has a name.  "Indecision".  I'm also suffering from strains of "Picky" "Expensive tastes" and "Frugal is my Middle Name".  Have you ever tried having very expensive tastes while being very frugal at heart?  Talk about a conflict of interests.
  So this all results in me browsing the wide world web for hours and hours, and my dear husband sighing and telling me to JUST PICK ONE while I continue looking at gliders until I've seen every one in existence at least 2.3 times, and keep looking at sites like Land of Nod, Pottery Barn Kids and Serena and Lily even though I would never have the guts to purchase anything from there, regardless of how filthy rich I was.  And that was a long sentence.

   My issue is, I don't want to spend over a certain amount, and I want something comfortable and stylish.  It doesn't sound like those are outlandish, lofty aspirations, but for some reason, it effectively elimantes 99.999999% of the gliders in the known universe.  Funny, but that same strain of reasoning eliminates most household items.  And diaper bags.  And shoes.  Hmm...maybe I AM the problem....

  By the end of this week, I will have purchased a glider.  I am not letting myself back out of this one.  It's ridiculous.  We keep rocking Jossi to sleep on our feet, and for a 21-week pregnant woman, or anyone in general who's remotely tired, that's just not really a pleasant option.  So, no looking back, this week is the week.

Wish me luck.

  1. I can't wait to see what you pick :)

  2. I can't wait to see what you pick, either, because we are in the same shoes...I didn't have a glider for the first (no room for it) but since we have a new house I really want one before May for the next one! I'm a little different though--my husband is pickier than me. Show us your choice!

    Also, are you finding out the gender of your babe this time?!

    1. I will show a picture once I finally choose one.:) And yes, we actually already know the gender.:) I may have to do a reveal post some time.:)

  3. I love your blog! Just an encouragement, if you can afford it, ditch the frugality (ever so briefly) and enjoy a glider that you like and won't fall apart. My niece got one at the baby superstore and it is broken already and her baby isn't a year old. May as well get something you like! Frugal is my middle name too - if I can find it cheap, I'm happy. Until it breaks.
