Well...it's been a couple months since I posted (and I'm so sorry for not being a better blogger but more importantly for not being a better support on YOUR journeys). It has been a whirlwind of 2 months:
-We are already stretched thin at work (who's not?!), and our Assistant Director is out on maternity leave. Add that to the fact that the Fall semester is always crazy on a college campus anyways, and you get 1 insane semester that has FLOWN by (and praise God for that)!
-My husband and I found a small piece of property with a house on it that we went through the process of buying. It was a HUD foreclosure, so it was quite complicated at times (dropped contract because of UPS error, miscommunications between lender and agent, etc.). But it's OURS now!
-The family who was foreclosed on was ANGRY upon being evicted (can't say I blame them, but it sure would've been nice if they HADN'T cut all the electrical wires in the walls, kicked out plumbing, etc.). Our nights and weekends are filled with working out at our new house on the flooring, electric, plumbing, and fences (we've got to have somewhere to keep our puppy dogs!).
-Oh, and last but not least...we found out we're PREGNANT! That's right--we're having a baby next May! So needless to say, my weight has NOT decreased since my last post. In fact, it's gone up about 10 (or 12...or 13) pounds. Not happy about the rate at which I'm gaining weight with the pregnancy (considering my doctor said that with my starting weight, I should only gain 15-20 pounds max), but I'm trying to make healthy choices and do my best to provide a healthy atmosphere for our little bean! :)
