Today’s a little bittersweet for me and my family. Today our house goes on the market. It’s a little tough because this was the home that Heather and I came home to as a married couple. It’s the house we brought our little boy home from the hospital to. We know it’s the right decision, but it’s still a little hard. I know home is where you make it, but this place has memories. It’s a great little house and we’re sure to miss it. But the truth is, we didn’t really plan on starting a family as early as we did and the yard just isn’t great for a 3 year old. The backyard has a huge slant and there just isn’t much place to play. And our little guy needs LOTS of room to play. That kid would be outside from sun up to sun down if we’d let him. We need a little more room to spread out, too.
It’s the first of many changes on the horizon for us. Heather will graduate in May and she’ll be transitioning to a new job. And just have to brag a minute, she’ll graduate with honors. Yep, Magna Cum Laude… I’ll be more like thankya laude ~grins~. Kidding aside, it will be great to have the stress off of her. That will allow her to relax a little. She’s done a pretty good job though being a full-time student, mom, and wife all while holding down a full time job as an RN. I’m so proud of that girl!
Well, I just felt like I hadn’t chatted with y’all in a while and just wanted to let you in on what’s going on in my life. I’ll have a little bit more free time now that my travel with work is over, so I hope to be able to chat with y’all a little bit more than I have been so far this year. By the way, what happened to January, February, and the first half of March??? Whew! Seems like I was just taking down Christmas decorations. Good grief! Well, y’all be good!
