TodayI..wanted to get back on track with my blog posts. Just to let you in on a little confession..I actually made this week’s posts last week because I knew I was going to be going crazy with the big move. This past Saturday it happened. We actually moved back in with my parents even though we said we would try to do it without them…But, gotta love that they were right when they said, ” You’ll be back!” I still see that look on my dad’s face. That look that says, “I told you so!” I hate to admit it, but he was right. I mean..I guess we could’ve done it on our own, but it just would’ve taken a WHOLE lot longer…and RENT just adds up, especially when you live in Southern California and near the beach. Sometimes, you just gotta suck it up and do what you gotta do. I think my husband feels like he failed at providing for us! But, I’m constantly trying to assure him that by making this decision, it will help us in our future! And, that’s all I could ever ask for. I’m so thankful that he’s decided this because sometimes when we are humbled, those are the times we grow the most! Naw what I mean?!?
Anyway, where was I..Oh, yah..Saturday. It was a long, tiring morning/afternoon, but luckily we celebrated with some good eats!
And..on Sunday, we rested.
I’m looking forward to more routine posts this week. Eek! Sorry for last week. There are no excuses. The good thing is..my sister is back from Tahiti! She was gone for so long and I never missed anyone so much (except for when Eddie was in the military.) Welcome back sis! This past weekend was cray cray..as some people like to say. My husband did and I enjoy a nice dinner at a Brazilian restaurant. Mmm.. meat! The one good thing about Paleo..you can eat all the meat you want! Nom, nom, nom! Happy Monday everyone!
Hi everyone! Hope your weekend went well.
Mine was semi-productive…
cleaned the apartment up a bit, started to clear out the nursery and make room for a crib, assembled the crib (woohoo! Go eddie!), did 4 loads of laundry, watched some softball, enjoyed some BBQ and had time to blog! That is a successful weekend to me. I like the feeling of getting things done. This week I am looking forward to a stress-free week at work with no boss in town (woohoo again!) and a Valentine’s surprise that Eddie is supposedly planning. I have no idea what it is or where we are going, but it’ll hopefully make the work week go by faster!
Have an inspiring one!
My husband and I can actually relate closely to this quote. When you get married or even when you’re about to have a baby, people will ALWAYS try to encourage you to do things certain ways and/or convince you on how to/how not to live your lives. Not that I don’t appreciate the suggestions, but everyone is always going to have something to say. Have you ever noticed that? Well, if you haven’t..be prepared! I want to say, take what everyone has to say with a grain of salt, and do what you know feels right. However, I was taught in ministry that sometimes we shouldn’t do what we “feel” is right all the time because you have to use your mind also. I’m not sure if I completely agree with Mrs. Roosevelt on this one, but I do know she was right about the criticism part. Don’t let people control/influence your decisions on how to live out your married vocation and on how to raise your child. Only you (and your spouse) can make decisions that are right for the both of you. No one else’s opinion matters… honestly.
Have a great day and a great week!
Hey everyone! Hope your weekend went well! My weekend turned out busier than I had envisioned. At least I can feel proud and happy with all the things I accomplished (got a new timing belt for car, danced for a kids birthday party, went to mass, did lesson plans, ate some good food, watched the husband play softball, and drank a lot of water!) I love that accomplished feeling, don’t you? Well, hope this week goes smoothly for everyone. I’m looking forward to the weekend, already. Ha!
