We are waiting.
I didn't lie when I said our tortise seems to be edging out the hare, but they haven't made it to the finish line yet.
And so. We wait.
Which means that sometimes it is hard to see what is really going on in our lives for the fog of waiting.
Now. This is annoying, and we will CELEBRATE when the waiting is done. BUT. We have friends and family who have waited longer and with more patience for far more important things.
The house. In perspective? But an annoyance.
So, what have we been up to?
Working. Gathering details for new opportunities. Sticking our toes into new adventures ... with trepidation and excitement. For Kyle, travel, travel travel.
Playing. We have done our fair share of travel for fun, for vacation, for family vists. It has been wonderful. But, I am ready to be without suitcase for a period of time. We shall see if that time comes ;)
This weekend we got to meet my cousin Sean's son Tyler. He is such a cutie!! He is about 6 months younger than Olive, and (hopefully) they will be friends when they are old enough to know what friends are.
We have a few other recent additions to our family that we hope to meet soon, and we no longer have the distance excuse!
Kyle and I went on a date Friday night, taking advantage of some newly nearby family babysitters. :) We had a great time. We didn't do anything fancy: enjoyed happy hour at a sushi bar, ran some errands, saw the weinermobile, enjoyed adult conversation, pondered our next steps ... Wonderful.
That's it for now. Enjoy your week. We will try to enjoy ours!
