A Little of This, a Little of That

"The sooner you fall behind the more time you'll have to catch up." ~ Anonymous

Well, I thought since it's been awhile, I'd catch up my old readers (bless you guys for sticking around!) and lay the foundation for new readers about what's been up lately.

I'll skip the boring, mundane diatribe about work. Still consulting. Blah.

Enjoying the new house. Though, now that we've been here almost two years, we're realizing how stupid we were to jump into 3000 sq feet. For two people. And two {crazy} dogs. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a bargain. Though I do miss the coziness of our old house, I don't miss the ghetto neighbors.

What else? Oh. I want a baby. Yeah, one of those crying, drooling, pooping messes that can turn your whole life around. Yep, one please. And the sooner? The better. We've been trying for about a year now. Thanks to some minor setbacks -- miscarriage included -- I find myself becoming slighting discouraged, slightly scared to try again. But that's a whoooole other post.

My friends are keeping me sane. Well, a couple are driving me crazy, but in general my life revolves around them. They're like my second family -- sometimes I wish they'd adopt me. As for my hubby's family? Sometimes I wish they'd just leave me alone. I'm just serious ... I mean kidding. Okay, maybe if his mother would just leave me alone, then I'd be golden. Even those stories are worth their own post. Someday.

I'm in the last few months of my twenties. I'm not nervous about it yet. I'm still not sure it'll feel any different than how I feel now. I mean, it's not like I'm 25 anymore. *sigh* To be 25 again. Now that was a sweet age. My favorite {so far} for soo many different reasons.

Anyway, that's about it. I'm sure everything else will reveal itself in due time...

A baby? You're one of those crazy people that wants a baby? (giggle)

More power to you! Someone needs to keep the human race going, especially since I'm not going to participate. :-) :-)

I'm very sorry to hear about your "setback"...and here's wishing you many happy things to come in the future!!!!!

Welcome back.

LOL, yeah, let's just say I quickly became one of those crazy ones. It was like the flu -- hit me over the head one day :)

Good luck to you and hope you two are blessed with a baby too! I also am enjoying the last few months of my twenties and recently moved into a 3000 sq ft house (like you said - sucker for a bargain!) though my lifestyle's not quite ready for a chubby, drooling mess yet. But soon. I hope.

Thanks Krista!! If you have any secrets to keeping your house clean, please let me know. I'm desperate! :)
