I’ve been absent, very absent. Work was busy, but there were also a few other things going on as well. Steve has not found a job and my self-inflicted stress is mounting. I can only imagine how he feels. Watching him deal with the California Employment office is nothing less than extremely painful. I do feel bad for all those out there who don’t know that calling everyday and being persistent will pay off. It’s a small pay off, but it will happen.
We also have some news. Abby is getting a little sister around Christmas time. Up until recently I have had zero energy, spent some time on ‘reduced activity’ and can finally brush my teeth without getting sick. The pile of fabric sits in the garage, lonely, but still neatly folded. All of the projects I was going to get to will have to wait. Right now, spending time with Abby and sleeping are my two biggest desires and priorities. In hindsight, we really should have started trying to have children sooner; I’m just too old for this… But… I’m going to be blessed with two daughters (lots of fun shopping in my future for sure), I have a flexible job that lets me spend time where/when I need to and a husband who has picked up the slack around the house while I nap regularly and sleep in every morning. Who could ask for more?
