Ups and Downs

It's been an up and down week. Thankfully, today is an up day.

We had a busy, busy weekend, seeing all of our parents at some point during three days, and managed to fit a pedicure party (just me, not the boys) and hiking in there too.
Monday was rough- no nap for Caleb makes for a veeeery long day for the both of us.
Tuesday was great! Caleb napped, and I was able to FINALLY organize my pictures into neat little files. Bible study was so good and refreshing; I'm constantly stretching and learning about faith and what it means to be a follower of Christ. It was so freeing to hear the other women talk about how their faith is not their parents' faith; this is something I'm just now starting to embrace.
Yesterday was rough; again no nap for Caleb. But then we went to my parents' house for dinner, and seeing Dad make Caleb laugh SO hard made up for the rest of the day.

Today got off to a great start: Andrea and I met up at Veterans Memorial Park and took a couple mile walk down the Green Belt. It was invigorating and so, so wonderful to spend that time with her. Caleb is napping now, and I'm about to get all the laundry folded. Then maybe, if we have time, we'll make a quick run to the Library(!). I'm still not sure what to make for dinner, seeing as we've needed to go grocery shopping for over a week now. Oh well; I'll figure it out later.

Within Reach

As usual, I've failed to keep up with this blog, just like all the others. In the past few years I've become more private and closed regarding what I put out on the internet for anyone to see; this is a good thing. I do miss the immediacy of blogging though, as opposed to how long it takes me to write by hand. I've fallen down on my paper journal too. I can't keep up with time anymore. The weeks just fly by, and I feel like I'm just barely hanging on.

It is exciting though. We are at an incredible time in our lives, with so many opportunities within reach. Since Eric started his new job, we've paid down our debts considerably, and are about to begin the house hunting process. It will be so wonderful to own our own home, to paint and decorate and landscape the way we want to- no landlord to decide what can and can't be done. We want to get a dog within the next couple years too; that will be way too much fun. I miss having a dog around the house; our cat just isn't the same.

Caleb is starting to talk- cat, kitty, dog, daddy, momma, and fish are the words he really knows. He's good at immitating us, but doesn't quite put together the meanings of any other words yet. Soon though; he's a smart kid and figures things out quickly. He's such a character, and amazes us daily.

So yeah, it seems as though everything is finally within reach. The world is ours for the taking, and we are making the most of it!
